I've been plugging away at the Fat Quarter Book by Lori Smith.
I've had this little quilt done for quite some time. It was just a matter of loading it on Penelope and getting it machine quilted.
If you've been following my blog from the beginning, you know that I am not a fan of paper piecing. The technique and I just do not get along.
Way back in 2007 I even wrote an entry on 10 reasons not to paper piece! lol
I print my blocks and piece accordingly. I do not have to remove the foundation. Once washed, it blends in with your batting.
I don't even have tension issues!
Yea, I'm in love with Stable Stuff! lol Basically, it's machine embroidery stabilizer cut in a convenient size 8.5" x 11" sheets. Works for me!
Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

Boy, I've never heard of this stuff. Definitely worth checking into!
Wow....I've never heard of the stuff. It sounds awesome.
Love your quilt, beautiful prints.
That looks interesting. I want to machine quilt more and I like a stabilizer for the applique. I use the stuff from jo anns usually, really need to learn more about the different products.
Paper piecing *ugh* I'm right there with you on that one!
I love it! And I"m glad to know that Stable Stuff works. I"ll have to try it!
