Snow Buddies...


This is what I have been working on the last couple of days. This cute little quilt from Connecting Threads. Another nice kit. It is flannel and Oh so soft. Not sure weather I like taking pictures outside as I just filled my shoes with snow but they do take nicer pictures. Really like my Nexus 7 for taking pictures and it downloads them right to my blog. So much easier.

I tried something new on this . I saw this on U tube just before Christmas and decided to order it. With this tip you put a bead around the edge of your applique and then just press it with a hot iron. What's nice about it you don't have to use E Bond.. You have only one cut. I thought it might make it stiff around the edges but it doesn't. It is washable so when you wash it it will wash away.  I give it a ten.


They were $6.98 for the glue tips and I ordered them from http://www.purpledaisiesllc.com/category_s/146.htm.  The email on the card will show you how it works.


I saw this quilt on Tickle and Hide and thought it was so pretty. So I decided to go down stairs and try it. You use 5"  and a 2 1/2" charm pack. If you don't have a 2 1/2" charm, just cut the 5" charm pack up. It works up really quick. I used 1" seams and the white pieces are 2 1/2" by 5". This charm pack is called Awesome by Moda.



Well time to get off this computer and get something done. My husband is away for the day so I should make the most of it. Have a great day.
