Thank you, thank you Mary Liz for introducing me to your glue stick method of hand-applique! I just finished block #3 from THE CIVIL WAR BRIDE (my second finished block). I was a little nervous about dunking/soaking it in water to dissolve the glue stick and the Roxanne's Glue Baste upon finishing all the hand-stitching...but I'm a fabric washer, so there were no surprises, like fabrics running. After all that work, I would have died on the spot if colors had bled!! I'm still going to take your class in a couple of weeks, but I'm getting more confident with each little bit I glue! This project is so special for me and I am enjoying the online quilt group that is kind of like a little stitch group.
I should finish the binding on two quilted U.F.O.'s, then I will work on another "Bride" block. There are so many frickin' leaves in that project!!
