Did You Stock Up?


I think I'm ready.
Many a vintage baby quilt to make.
I've given up pinning the squares on & have advanced to glue sticks.

Here's the latest kit -- Robots & Rockets



Get those school supplies while you can.
Stocked up on crayons too. Paid a $1.40 for a box this spring -- not doing that again. Crayon rolls to create. I think they'd make a good Halloween treat - tooth friendly. Out here, we only get 8 people, but I always have to buy a lot of candy, just in case.
Have a great weekend!

  2. Hey Corrie, I've made several of the Vintage Baby quilts and I'll let you in on a little secret that I use to hold the squares in place. You can find this in the back to school supplies too. Washable Elmer's glue. Just put a little dab in the middle of the square. They all stay on while your sewing the rows. then it washes out when you wash the quilt. I have one that is still glued on that I started back in April. I guess I should finish that one, huh? Try it you might like it to. oohsaahsw@aol.com

  4. I actually bought the wash out fabric adhesive, but am scared to make this quilt! I bought it a while ago to make as a baby gift (he's 4 months old now!) and haven't done it, as the measuring and placement of the squares seems so daunting! I guess I should just suck it up and do it!!

  5. I've been using glue stick for evah. It surprises me that people don't know about glue sticks. I also use lots of regular elmer's glue. I use a very fine metal tip to get just the tiniest thinnest line possible and then heat set it with my iron. Holds better than glue stick, completely washable and still unpermanent

  8. I only got a few school supplies to date. My son just needed a few notebooks of paper and some mechanical pencils. I bought him a box of crayons too - for old time's sake. ;) I should go back and get glue sticks and Elmer's Washable Glue. Thanks for the reminder.
    LOVE the quilt!!! LOVE IT!

  9. I know this is a popular quilt but I can't get past the laying it on a grid and marking it. It seems like a waste of time to me. But I don't like rough edge quilting so I just leave it alone.
