    This is a show stopper! I hope you plan to enter it somewhere! It is truly a winner!

    Can you tell me where I can get instructions to do Stack n Whack for that pattern?

I don't know if you can see them in these photos or not. See what you think.

    I use light heat and bond and it seems to me to be softer and more plyable. Love your quilt it is beautful.

    OOps! Sorry about the duplication. When the first one didn't "fly," I sent it again. :oops:

    She is right. There are two types of heat and bond. Heavy duty and light. Using the heaavy can cause your needle to gum up. But they say you don't need to sew around it. I don't know about that part as I have never tried to sew more than a few inches around. the lighter is alot softer and has always worked well for me. Oh, and that quilt IS beautiful, just in case no one has said that! lol

    That is spectacular. Your fan fabric looks like antique hankies. I just love it.

    Welcome, KimS. Yes, you will learn a lot and make awesome friends. And of course you're going to see some great eye candy along the way -- BUT , beware, this place is addicting (in a good way!). Welcome to the family.
