    Hi dakotamaid, I couldn't find it either. Glad I'm not the only one. Could someone help us locate the tute?

    Oh, good. I didn't want to appear dense so I wasn't going to ask. Thanks for asking.

    I can't find the instructions on your blog. Where should I look?
    Quilting is fine, but
    Finishing is divine.

    Sorry...I have deleted the post. I updated my blog and removed that one. I have rec'd many emails so I will do another blog on it again in the future. I just finished a quilt today and can not believe I totally forgot to take pictures and redo the instructions. I have been busy getting ready for Christmas. I will be making more of the ornaments. Salt ornaments. I am thinking of using my cats paw prints and giving the ornament to my husband.

    I just finished an appliqued quilt. How I wish I'd seen this first. Spray adhesive = Great idea.

    The 606 applique spray adhesive worked really well! I was a bit nervous washing it will the raw edges so I also did use the frey check...both worked great! the appliques were nice and soft unlike using fusible. I would recommend the 606 spray.

    I am now making my second quilt using the 606 applique spray. What a difference if you spray is as you cut your cirles or other shapes. My last quilt I had cut them a few months prior to spraying them so there were a few slight freys here and there so I used frey check also...I don't think I am going to need it on this one...so far it looks perfect. I love the 606 spray...it does not make my shapes all hard. No issues sewing the applique.

    I just completed another raw seam quilt, this time a Drunkards Path with no curves and raw seams and put it on normal wash and dry...no issues. I did use Frey check again with the 606 spray. I did not trust the 606 without frey check.
