I got to spend a lovely long weekend at home sewing. I tried my hand at those daisies i took a picture of last week. Here is my problem: I used heat and bond to stick the fabric together and when I went to sew it down the needle got all gummy and the thread kept breaking. How should I handle this problem?
I got a little frustrated so I put it away and pulled out my Scraps and Shirttails book by Bonnie K. Hunter. I really like the Virginia Bound quilt but didn't want to start on another paper piecing project quite yet. I was looking for a project to use my shirt scraps. I pre cut these strips at 2 and 3.5 inches a while ago.
I decided to start on Cactus Patch. Instead of paper piecing strings I striped pieced a 6.5 inch blocks and made 2.5 inch HST for an 18 inch block.
