I can hardly believe all those skills were new to you. Thank you for the fun tut on those leaves. Can't wait to give it a try. Spectacular!!!

  136. I love your table runner. I have that die and played with it for the first time tonight. I am wondering if you have any tips for positioning the applique pieces once they are cut. I was wishing I had a template to slide under the backing fabric to use as a guide. I ended up getting them positioned pretty good, but some of the pieces were off just a tiny bit.

    ReplyDelete
