Fun Friday Tip

Do the words “fusible applique” scare you? They don’t have to.

I just spotted this free Machine Applique E-Guide from Landauer. It has all the tips and tricks you need to know collected in one place ~ Woot! It’s a must print for your sewing room reference notebook.

Lots of great photos detailing how to work with fusible web, stitch curves and corners, and how to use those decorative machine stitches to add detail. LOVE it!!

Everything you need to know! Go grab your copy!

Museum of Glass

I spent last weekend in Seattle visiting my best friend. We took a little side trip to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA for some colorful inspiration. Sadly, there was a lot of smoke in the sky from all the fires that are burning.

Then this wonderful little guy caught my eye because he has the same name as my quilt, “Pig in a Blanket”. The museum has an awesome program where kids under 12 design glass sculptures. Read his sign below.
