    We ruined ours but are desperately trying to get them finished. We cut out all new Angels, and are now trying to find the fabric to use for the blocks... The kids are working very hard to finish in time, hopefully we will make it. The issue is none of us knowing how to applique. We got the fusible stuff to iron it down and try and sew around it.
     
  2. Writer of words, I am sure it will all work out great! I followed the advise of the fearless leader Coyote Magic and used glue sticks to fasten the fabric to the blocks! [​IMG]

    I have to admit, it works fantastic! [​IMG]

    LOL nooooooooooooo no fabric paint! Do ya'll have zigzag on your machines? Set your stitch width to 3 or 4 and length 2 or 3. I'm a lead foot, I've had to teach myself to slow down, especially on the curves. I'm proud of ya'll for giving it a try!!
