Teenie-tiny flowers...

I have managed to do a little glue prepping on my secret project...LOTS of tiny, challenging pieces, but with this applique method, I am up to the challenge!  I now have about twenty large blocks drafted...I like how they look on paper, and I've got 3 fifteen inch blocks glue-basted and ready to stitch.  I think I will be pushing the envelope with my glue method on some of these blocks...the pieces are so TINY!


I hope I can show you more of this project soon, but I have created (drafted) something I have never seen before in the quilting world (just when I thought EVERYTHING had been done...), and I want to copyright the designs after I see if they work in fabric as well as they do on paper
.  

I hate to be a tease...just afraid of the Internet.  Mostly, I just hate to have nothing more than these little snippets to share with you!  I am giddy with excitement about the project!


Since I hate choosing fabric, I am choosing not to choose.  I'm just using every fabric I can lay my hands on.  It's like going to a dinner buffet and having a little bite...of EVERYTHING!  (and NO calories!)


Yee-haw!


In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  5. I have tried the glue method as you are doing and find it so tedious - the end result is very neat but I think I will stick with needle turn. I am waiting with anticipation to see what you have come up with that you are not showing right now!

  16. Sneak peaks are good. I think you are smart to wait, but I know you want to share. Maybe be you can just do word documents as you go and save them. Then when you are all finished you (and we) will have a written history of each block as you make it. I can not wait to see this!
    Happy Stitching Teresa!
