sampler quilt and made few for here as well. I machine appliqued them using a white cotton thread.

I used a wash away fusable for the tear drops. Above you can see the background fabric through the white, but below you cannot.

I was at the Just Takes 2 retreat in Shipshewana back in November and Brenda Papadakis, Dear Jane herself, showed me what I was doing wrong with the back basting technique. I was not using a fat needle to do the basting. With a fat needle, I am using a tapestry 8, the holes in the background fabric become the stitching guidelines. I have used this technique a lot since then and love it. However, it is not so easy to make all sides exactly the same. Hmm. Need more practice.
