I completed a couple more blocks from Christmas 101 and I ran into a little problem. I have always used Elmer's school glue sticks to tack down my larger applique pieces rather than lots of little pins.
Last week I saw this new glue Lapel at the quilt shop so I bought some and used it last night ....Look what happened when I pressed this block.
Now these glue sticks are a lot more expensive than Elmer's so it's back to Elmer's for me and Mr. Lapel has a new home in the trash.
Here's hoping it comes out in the wash.
I am also up to date with my Marti Michell Farmers Wife red and white blocks but not for long because a new set comes out Friday.
This is my version of "Brass Buttons" from the Civil War Legacies book.
I think I have the little quilt fever thanks to Kathie from Inspired by Antique Quilts. She just posted another one I would like to make.
