Hi Helen,
Your tutorials are fabulous thanks. After finishing all my lovely needle turn, when is best to wash quilt top? Before I do the free motion quilting on the quilt or after all done and bound? I want that lovely soft finish to that my flowers pop and are soft between the lines of quilting.
Thanks for your advice, Karen


Bought some yesterday at our sewing day, just need to get some other projects out of the way and I can try it out! PS thanks for a great day and the 'tea' ladies were delightful. They did a great job keeping us supplied with food and drinks all day, hope they raised enough money for their club.

    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!
