    I start with a real stained glass pattern, one meant to be cut from glass. Dover Publications is a great source. They can be blown up by printing companies.

    The applique process for the pieces of fabric are exactly the same as for regular applique that you would be doing a saten stitch on the edge. Oh, my, gosh! Those really are beautiful! I'm going to have to try that method for putting yarn on a quilt and I have just the project to try it on. thanks, "cat"

    Trace your pattern on the backside of the of the pattern.
    Trace your pieces on paper backed fusible web allowing for overlap where two pieces meet..

    Messy cut ou the paper backed fusible web
    Iron pattern pieces onto back of fabic

    Cut the pattern pieces out on the exact lines

    Iron the applique pieces to your background fabric. I put my paper pattern undernearth my background fabric and glue them on with a glue stick. I tape my pattern to the window, tape my background to the window and then use the glue stick on my applique pieces

    Iron the applique pieces to your backgroud fabric.

    Quilt the piece now before putting on the leading lines. You can travel on the lines where the "leading" is going to be put.

    Now we are ready for the "leading" or in this case the yarn. I use Red Heart 2 ply black yarn. Why because it is available in my small town. Others will work.

    Deb,

    Your work is beautiful. Thank you for the tutorial.

    I love stained glass patterns from Dover. I've collected quite a few over the years with the intention of doing quilts. However, as you say, the little pieces and the bias tape have caused me to wonder how I could put them together cleanly. Your method has made all the difference.

    I hope you show us more of your work. You are a great inspiration.

    The stained glass quilts are a work of art. I re-read the tutorial several times before I got the "light bulb".....although something I still don't understand, before you do the black leading, do you sandwich the layers into a quilt, and outline the image, or do you do all of the design and then sandwich and quilt. Also do you do the "overs and unders" with the leading as with the bias one.

    This technique is just what I've been looking for. Thanks so much for explaining it so well. I have had a project that I designed and couldn't figure out how to get it to look right but now you hit it on the head.
    Love your work and hope mine comes out as well.

    Thanks a million!!!!

    Thanks so much for showing us a fabulous new technique. I have lots of Angel patterns from Dover and other stained glass pattern books that would be great with this method. You're the best!!

    OMG I can't wait to try this on a much smaller scale. I used to do stained glass until my fingers got so much arthritis in them. I have oodles of pattern books. I've tried with the bias tape, but just wasn't happy with the end results.

    Thank you so much for showing us this method!!!!

    Your pictures are just beautiful!!!
