    I finished this a while back but learned how to use glue stick on the seams and so pleased all my seams matched. For so many seams, it was amazing. Since then I have shown others. SO easy. Less pins to stick me to while I sew. You use a dab of glue on each seam, then add the piece to sew together and press down the seams on that one to match the glued one. And it manages to work in the "slight" extra fabric so it matches. I love this technique, learned in the class.

    I am actually working on a tutorial. Give me a few days. Haven't done one before and will take pictures to go with it. Thanks for looking. They look hard, but really this went together in a few days. ALso used the tube method so you sew each row and then end to end and make a circle, then as you get to the row you need, you use your seam ripper and unseam right at the next color. SO much easier. It is in the bargello book - directions that is. I will post the name of the book later.

    I made the Bargello Heart along time ago and I thought it was very easy. But I am still lost on the glue thing. :mrgreen:
