That's what I get for reading this thread. LOL

Happy Holidays to all of you dear friends.

Jo Jo, are you kidding? I'm hand quilting this whole picture! And, my middle name is Slow! I'm just hoping to be able to keep up with everyone! And, did you know the line of fabric that I chose is called "Happy?"

And, Annis, I love your Christmas find! Everyone's quilt is going to be so creative and different.

Dawn, you are going to be the first one done with the center block! Can't wait to see your block done with all those happy colors.

Look what I found in my stash! Maybe I will join you in making a Christmas wall quilt. By replacing the applique and the basket blocks with fussy cut motifs it will go a lot faster. I've already figured out the block sizes needed to make it work which will make a finished quilt about 46" square if I add all of the borders. And the fabric has lots of color choices besides red and green, including black, brown, blue, and gold. I'm sure I can find lots of scraps of these colors in my stash. Thanks JoJo and the rest of you for the inspiration.

Jo Jo, I am really looking forward to seeing what you came up with!!! I am so glad you are going forward with the holly/poinsettia block. I'm guessing that is still what is in your center block, since you mentioned berries. I love a mystery. I have all of my Stable Stuff templates cut, and about a third of them have the fabric glued on. I'm begining to see a very colorful picture forming! Fun! Fun! Fun!

Perfect! That's what I was hoping. I planned to leave it on the back of the piece. Ricky said it gets like a used kleenix, (I suspect a clean, used kleenix! Ewwww!) Your silk crazy quilt is beautiful! You are so helpful Margo, thank you.

It works GREAT for foundation piecing! I wouldn't want to tear it away, however.

I used it for a crazy quilt that I made using silk neckties. The silk was really flimsy without some kind of stabilizer, and the Stable Stuff was the perfect foundation. I left it in the project and when washed, it was soft, but had some body. It also helped stabilize the decorative stitches I added to all of the seams. Because my blocks were 8"x8" I was able to print out the different block designs on my printer to make quick work of the crazy blocks!

Try it! You will like it!

So Margo, do you think I can use it for foundation piecing?

Janice, Ricky's Stable Stuff is a stabilizer that is wonderful for using with embroidery projects, but I love to use it for appliqué foundations. Unlike freezer paper foundations which must be removed, Stable Stuff can stay in the project and after it's washed it becomes really soft and gives just a hint of fullness to the appliquéd shapes. For embroidery projects, the excess can be torn away.

Here is a tutorial showing how I used it for the 2010 Hugs and Kisses BOM for machine appliqué, and this is the technique that I'll be doing additional tutorials to share during the 2011 Ruffled Roses BOM.

The Stable Stuff comes as yardage that is more economical to use than the 8-1/2 x 11 pre-cut sheets that you can run through your printer.

And here is a link to my tute showing how I make my own templates for berries and other shapes out of manila folders from the 2008 BOM:
