However, in order to do the applique I had to take the papers out...which meant cutting the black away. In order to do this I used Elmer's School glue and a really fine tip to put a line around each applique. Then I put them on the black, turned it over and ironed the glue dry from the back. Then I cut away the extra black so I could pull out the papers.
Come back next week to see how I quilted it.
I'm off on quilt retreat! I hope you get to quilt today!
