Working on another horse and one more waiting in the wings. This one had a rather large piece that I wanted to do with very lightweight fusible. Because there will be quite a number of pieces on top of this one I used Misty Fuse which is very lightweight.

The piece was traced onto parchment paper and sandwiched with
attachment-202064.jpe

sandwiched with the fabric, Misty Fuse and parchement paper piece
attachment-202065.jpe

iron the sandwich together protecting both the iron and ironing board
attachment-202066.jpe

The rest of the pieces ready to go on top.

No way. I can trace and that is about it. This is another Toni Whitney pattern. She is a painter who is now designing quilts. I love her stuff. I enlarge her patterns so I can satin stitch all the edges down. Trace the pieces to fusible, I usually use Wonder Under because it is cheaper. Fuse the pieces to the back of the fabric and cut them out. Then peel off the paper, put the enlarged pattern under parchment paper and put the pieces into place ironing them down as I go. If you can trace you can do it. The pattern now has a strip with the fabric colors and lists the name of each fabric so you can copy her colors.
