Linda, I trimmed the 3 teardrop shapes out of the Stable Stuff and cut the outside shape (along the orange lines) as usual, then glued the fabric to the Stable Stuff.

I just turned under the outside edges as usual, then made clips in the teardrop shapes (blue lines) so I could glue those edges just like the outside edge.

The accent fabric is then just laid under the tulip shape and stitched into place just like regular applique! Easy Peasy!

Margo,
How did you do the reverse appliqué using Stable stuff? I don't remember seeing that in the earlier video. Or should we do that piece with fusible?

Luckily since I was playing "catch up," I hadn't cut my strips like I was suppose to in month 5 so I was able to use the 3/8" bias tape maker. Love that little thing!! :D And I can thankfully say that as of about 10 minutes ago, I am finished with month 7!! :lol:

I really liked the appearance of the 3/8inch vine and stems but I may go back to the original on that 90 inch vine on the side border.

Same with me. I had the 3/8 inch binder,but would have had to recut all those strips. I used the method I described in earlier post.
See making 3/8 inch binding posted earlier.

Same thing happened to me Linda, so decided to just go with the method in the pattern. That is the only thing I don't really care for in a BOM, hard to plan when cutting for month that you do not have the instructions for. I just decided to try Sue & Pat's method rather than do all that trimming.

Re: vines
I wish I had not cut the bias for the vines in month 5 before I knew how I was going to actually make the vines. I am using the 3/8 inch bias tape maker which means I have to trim down each and every squiggly bias strip.

Rosamond, I wish I could give you a definitive answer, but...I am using the kit to make a smaller, wall-size version of the pattern, so I'm having plenty of fabric. :?

The best I can offer is to just wait and see. If you do run out of one green, maybe you will have enough to substitute one of the other greens in the kit?
I think that ARJJ has ordered extra fabric and you should be able to order some from them if you want to.

For those of you using the kit, is anyone else running short of the light green fabric? After cutting out all of the leaves for month 7, I am going to have VERY little of the fabric left. Looking at the picture of the entire quilt, it looks like this fabric will be used quite a bit in the other two borders that are coming in the next months. I have not been wasteful with the fabric so don't know what has happened. Margo, since you have already gotten month 8, will this light green fabric be used?? If so, I need to order more fabric. :?

Thanks for asking this question, Sharon. I kept thinking I was doing something wrong when I was ended up with half a leaf.

Still working on last month's borders but looking forward to getting caught up this month.

Thank you, Margo. I guess I just needed "permission." i was concerned I was missing something and would end up short. I love your practical answers!! I have not yet been doing this long enough to have confidence. Someday soon! :) As my kids would say, "You rock!" :) (What would we do without you?!!!
