I managed to finish the Hopscotch Quilt and the Puzzle Box Quilt done - nos. 3 and 4 UFOs for 2018.  This year is off to a good start.  My next UFO is a Sampler Quilt.  The batting still has to be cut and pieced.  I won't be able to sandwich it until March.

Question for those who applique, I am working on an old project that requires 1/4" and 1/2" bias stems.  I cut out the bias sizes, did the ironing......  I am trying to get them laid out.  The patterns have no applique templates, just the pieces for the leaves, flowers, and baskets.  It is hard to get the bias tapes applied where they go so I can fuse the flowers down.  Is it possible, and can you use fusible stems instead?  I have done the sewing down of the stem in what little I have done on applique.  I want the project done, everything else is all set to go doing the fusible method.  thoughts?  My theory is to take a piece of green, iron to fusible, cut to the 1/4" and 1/2" on bias and then fuse down with the rest of the design.  Just checking if my theory could be sound.

Hi Beth,

I finished UFO #2 this year - my Churn Dash 2.  Can't lose my focus now.  I am ready to sandwich my Hopscotch Quilt

Today I am stash busting for QOV - cutting their small donated pieces of fabric into 5" squares and 2 1/2" squares.

Great news!!  I finally get to use my surgery foot again.  I have to wean myself into using it all the time, but for now, I get to use it with crutches.  Maybe by this weekend I will get to use the longarm for a short time.  I am so hoping.
