What advice would you give someone starting this project? I didn't like that the glue from the several layers of Steam-a-seam sticked to my needles. Thats why I didn't threadpaint it more and quilted it more as I intended from start. Maybe another steam-a-seam is better or I don't know what to do.

BabsK, another beautiful piece & I really like the colors that you have chosen. As for your problem ... try this one. http://www.mistyfuse.com/ it is a lot lighter. Go take a look. You won't get any stiffness, but have to be careful not to over heat this product. It is really good for certain projects. Again, your artistry is Beautiful & thank you for sharing. :-)

BabsK, you might also prefer the "Mistyfuse Ultraviolet" it is for items that will have more light exposure. Just a thought. :-)

gorgeous. i purchased the the Maria Elkins "lets paint faces" too and I have been so afraid of making a quilt like this because I don't know how to sew but you have inspired me to give it the old college try. Thanks for sharing.
