Hi Helen, waving from Atlanta, GA - Heat and Bond Lite is the one that you can stitch through, not sure if it is available there in Oz? And I love your blog, following the stitching round the world - 4 of us want to do it but can't until spring or summer here.

Very good piece,I'm happy I found this weblog,i'm always look for people to check out my web site. Please stop by and leave a comment sometime!


um. yea. i have nothing for you but understanding.... i totally hate that when it happens.




It's simply gorgeous- despite all the trouble it caused you!
I missed seeing you at Quilt Market- will you be in Salt Lake City in May?

I would have had the same thought pattern as you's fusible, that will work...thanks for the tip on what not to do...


Helen, I'm glad to have the warning before I tried the same thing, thanks for that...but I'm sorry what should have been a perfect day of quilting turned into a "learning the hard way" lesson day. Hugs...


I don't like that stuff either.


Oooops! No Sew is really NO SEW! Heat and Bond does have a sewable fusable web, but I don't think you had that! Old sturdy machines win the day!


Thanks heaps for the heads up Helen and so sorry for all the hassle you've had...
There's so much to learn.
Your quilt looks wonderful!


Thanks for the Big would have been in the bin if it was me..Glad it worked out in the end..

Oh dear - I can only imagine what you went through - Glad it all worked out in the end though - Have a great time in Melbourne :)


Oh Helen ... you have had a terrible time ... I don't envy anyone going through that drama.


You poor thing. That's an awful quilting emergency. Was it H&B 'Lite', or ordinary?? I know the rdinary is very sturdy!!

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
