    Mosquitosewgirl-the glue drop idea came from someone very smart here a few weeks ago when I asked how I could match up my points (I used a triangle template that had a blunt top to it so I didn't have dog-ears at the center of my hexagons-this made matching up the points when sewing the rows together very hard). It worked amazingly well. I want to look for those metal fine pointed glue dispensor caps to make it easier to apply a tiny drop.

    Angelina M you quilt is stunning - I have made one of these and used a darker background fabric - I would think about making one out of the red colorway because of all the work involved in this type of quilt I think there is not enough contrast - that contrast is what makes your quilt so stunning. If I ever do another one it will have high contrast in the fabric like yours.So beautiful

    Beautiful job! I just finished sewing the binding on my first OBW about 20 minutes ago-they're kind of a pain to sew but aren't they lovely when you get them done? I tried glue on mine but quit after a couple rows because it made it so that I couldn't press the seams open properly. Maybe I was doing something wrong? I ended up using a different tip from this forum - clover clips!! I love those things now, don't know how I ever sewed without them!

    Anyway, absolutely gorgeous quilt! You said you used a small triangle size? What size did you use? How big is this center part of the quilt now that its all stitched up? I ended up having to add extra borders to mine because it came out much smaller than I'd anticipated.

    OM! I remember your first post with that fabulous fabric and just knew how wonderful this was going to be.
    It is beautiful. Now on to the finishing touches. Anxious to see it quilted.

    Your quilt is beautiful. It reminds me of red fall leaves and an early snow. Can't wait to see it finished.

    At Barny and nygirl OBW is "one block wonder"

    I wish everyone would tell us what all those letters mean a little more often. I'm learning them, but I have a ways to go. I printed out a "dictionary" of such terms, but it's a pain to always have to look them up.

    And BTW (by the way), Overstocks has a set of two plastic bottles and seven different tips for them for $6.95. Shipping was free when I took those notes.

    Your OBW is one of the prettiest ones I've seen. You did a lovely job and I look forward to seeing it after the boarders are on and it's quilted. Thanks for sharing.
