"Afternoon Delight" was one of Sue Garman's favorite patterns. This wonderfully scrappy quilt is truly a delight to make with its combination of simple appliqué and Double Nine-Patch blocks and modified Shoo Fly blocks. Each month you will work on pieced and appliquéd blocks, and in the final month, you will assemble the blocks and add the outer border. The finished quilt measures approximately 86 1/2" inches square.

Let's use this Topic "Afernoon Delight Show and Tell" as a place to show off your beautiful blocks. That way, you know where to come to see what everyone is doing.

The topics that apply to each month are a good place to ask questions or make suggestions for each block.

AND when you post your photos to Social Media, like Instagram, Facebook, etc., use either of these hash tags so everyone there will be able to find our wonderful work:

I've had that problem with an HP printer using Ricky's Stable Stuff. I've heard you should print in draft mode to use less ink. You should always test your own stuff before using it. Even if it works for someone else, you probably have different water and use different detergent and all of these things can affect your results.

Thank you for your speedy reply. It would be great if members with different printers would do some testing and post their results. It seems that I will have to do some thinking about how I proceed from here.

I have not had this problem with my HP printer. Always a good idea to test an product that might run: fabrics, thread, ink, markers, etc.

Just a heads up--- if you leave printers ink inside your quilt it will run when wet. I had previously used it with freezer paper and hand applique. I thought that I'd better try it on the print and fuse. Heart breaking results in both cases. Had used both Canon and Epson printers.
My question is, if you have to remove the stablizer before washing, is raw edge applique the best option?
