This, That and The Other



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 little quilt was made from 1 1/2 inch waste triangles. I think it's pretty cute.


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.

Your red and white blocks are stunning using all the different shades! I like all the little quilts you are making and the Christmas 101 is really sweet. Thanks for theinfo about the glue!

Oh, Nancy, I hope that glue does come out in the wash!! What a shame - thanks for the heads up - I'll keep using my Elmers too!! And your little quilts are darling - I especially like the one with the 1-1/2 inch waste triangles!!

Love Carol Hopkins patterns - you have cute little quilts.
Still have not started a red and white project - stashed farbics though.
Thanks for sharing your projects!

Love all your projects. Good to know about the lapel glue, I just got one of those with a template I bought. I will be very cautious trying it now.

Just came from Taryn's link up. Love these little quilts! I have that book--need to get it out and look at the Brass Buttons pattern. I think I need that one. : )
