    Desperate times call for desperate measures--I am glad to see you could suck it up and do what you needed to do for the sake of your quilt. You are a true professional :D

    You can also use the mr coffee type filters they work great, just press the mflat. Now you did all that laundry for nothing :wink: :wink:

    Okay--why is everyone using dryer sheets and coffee filters for this process??? I thought you just stuck the baby on there and sewed around it--or used Wonder Under.

    Thanks for the tutorial. Did you have to do ANOTHER load of laundry just for us? We thank you for your dedication to quilting.

    I just love you guys. I had never thought of using used dryer sheets while I have been playing around with my embrodiery machine. Now I've learned how to save a little money :) Oh the things you can learn :D :D :D Thank you so much
