Damaris,

Did you have to reverse the pattern? I have the stablizer.

JoJo, You don't have to reverse, just trace and cut out and as soon as it is cut out, turn it over and make a mark, when you go to put it on the fabric, make sure the mark is facing up. I numbered my peices on the original pattern, then used the numbers for my marks.
:wink: TTFN & Happy Sewing,

Hi JoJo!! I did not have to reverse when I traced. But remember to place them correctly when glueing them to the wrong side of the fabric!!

Good reminder! thanks...

P.S. I tried tonight to get into Suzanne Marshall's class that is this May in Vancouver, WA, but it was already full..... Bummer! That would have been a fun class.

Welcome Chopin!! :D I am excited that you will be doing the BOM with US!!

Lynn, That book really helped me!! :D

Margo!! With all of the EXCELLENT advice we have been given by everyone, I decided to try Sharon Schamber's applique method. And I have to tell you I LOVE IT!! I made a sample, used the foundation fabric, gluesticks (alot :shock: ), I wanted to try machine applique, and I have to tell you it turned out WONDERFUL!!

Then I put it into the washing machine and dryer, and it came out just as I had dreamed it would!! I LOVE IT!! :!: :!:

Block of the Month 19 Feb 2008 13:10 #13930

Greetings. I am a passionate quilter, my favorite technique is needleturn applique. I will be working on the BOM and will be a little behind as I had not kept up with the site in a few months.
Sue Garman is an absolute great Designer. I am a self-taught quilter and learned how to do needleturn applique using Elly Sienkiewicz Baltimore Album Books on the way to Arizona in 2003 - I always seem to tackle the most difficult first. I will continue to keep up with the Blog, and if I can finish a block soon will post it. I am currently working on a qult that I have designed using Elly's Fluer-de-lies blocks and am naming it Chopin's Fluer-de-lies (I am a 6th generation niece of Frederic Chopin). I live in La Vernia, Texas, and we winter in Sierra Vista AZ. I bring my quilting with me and our 5th wheel is large enough that I can work on my projects while here. I look forward to belonging to the Blog.

I may get to this yet this week! All of you have contributed so much this week.

I have used Roxanne's Glue-Baste It for years and am very pleased with it, but after watching Sharon Schamber's videos (thanks to a tip here on TQS!) I'm going to try Elmer's Washable School Glue. She uses a metal tip that is sold on her daughter's web site, but watch this video to make your own tip to draw a very fine line of glue! I'm definately going to try this!

And if you are interested, I just found this list of her other videos, some of which are not shown in the Free Area of her web site!

The "ladder stitch" has been mentioned on the forum, and several people have asked me about it. Sharon demonstrates it in this video.

Holy cow, Margo!! :D :shock: :D

Your photos and instructions are outstanding. I was not planning on doing this by hand, but...but...but I think I HAVE to now.
What a huge amount of heart you've put into this -- thank you so very much!!

Margo, you are fantastic. I can only assume you are a teacher...if not, you should be. I'm doing machine applique, but I got quite a few tips from your tutorial. BTW, I think my background fabric is the same as yours!!! :?

Margo,

Great Job! Already I've had at least three "duh" moments -- realizing I could have done it easier/better if I saw your instructional photos before I started on my own! Thank you so much for sharing.

Thanks, Charlene! That makes me smile!!! :D
