Earth-Shaking Quilting News!

Oh boy--if you're a quilter, this is gonna change your life! Applique, formerly out of reach for less than accomplished quilters, is now easy-peasy to do. I've been using a hot-glue gun to fasten down complex applique shapes and it's working! No more needle-turn, tiny stitches, fussy and time-consuming work! In fact, no more thread-n-needle needed at all! Just cut and glue that puppy in place!

Here's the quilt I made yesterday using this method. Oh, and happy April's Fool Day.
