I went to one of her quilt retreats many years ago down in Santa Fe. It was great!

Hi Scoopie,
Yup, it's a Katie PM piece.

I'm chomping at the bit to get to Ruffled Roses so I'd better get back to it.

Eileen, Yup that looks like a Katy Pasquini-Masopust class/quilt! What is the deadline for? Hopefully to go into an upcoming book of hers?! I have a quilt in the book she published with Brett Barker, so I know she likes to put students work into her books. This particular quilt of yours looks quite confusing, but fun! Kind of like what we used to call "modern art." Hopefully you'll be done soon and onto the 2011 BOM!! I'm having great fun with mine, and can't wait to be far enough along to post a picture of it!

Here's what I'm working on right now. It has to be done in 2 weeks :shock: :shock: :!: :!:
As soon as I'm done with it, I can start stitching.

Margo,

I just finished reading and saving your tutorials on piping and machine applique quilting in the lessons section. They are both great. I am working on my stems right now using the needle turn method of applique. After reading your machine applique tutorial, I will be giving machine applique a try. Your instructions and photos are great.

Thanks for taking the time to do this for us.

Thanks Margo. I thought that was what you did but for some reason my brain said "hey--make one long piece and then sew it on." Hopefully, I won't have many "duh" moments.

Thanks for all your work on the PDF. I rewatched the show you recommended with Susan showing the piping demonstration and forgot how enjoyable a show that was.

They are still tweaking the tutorials. I'll let you know when everything is set up. [url]learn/classrooms/[/url]

JoJo, as for the piping around the center block, you need to use four separate pieces that cross at the corners. Let me know if I need to make the instructions more clear than the instructions on page 3: "stitching a strip to each side of the trimmed center before adding the setting triangles"

The piping PDF is now available in the classroom! Yay....

Margo, did you cut 4 pieces of piping or did you try to turn the corners with one long piece? I'm a little slow on that part?

The PDF for the first month is up at the BOM 2011, January area, but when you click on it, it opened up a blank screen but no attachment was there. It could be my computer so hopefully someone else will try and see if it opens up for them. The piping PDF opened perfectly though.

I never thought of putting the FP on the front. I will try it. Thanks for the idea!

Jean, I'm not sure what to tell you so maybe some of the others can offer some advice.

When I use freezer paper for needle-turn appliqué, I fuse it to the FRONT of the fabric and lightly trace around the paper with a pigma pen for my turn under line, then remove the FP to do the needle work.

When I want to use a stabilizer on the back of the appliqué, I use Stable Stuff because it can be left in the project, and there is nothing that has to be removed.

The best advice I can give at this point is to either use tweezers to remove the paper before it's all stitched in place, or securely stitch all the edges then carefully cut open the background fabric and remove the paper from the back.

I have a question referring to this first month on needleturn. So you have this big narrow heart shape on freezer paper, stuck onto the backside of your fabric. You are stitching it on. What is the best method to get the freezer paper out. I have used several but have realized that my fingers are too big for this. Most times, I leave bits of freezer paper in as I can't get them all out. Margo, what are your suggestions.
