I've been to Wonder-under Land

Yes, I have spent the last two weeks working on small quilts for the Winter Craft-show season.  This year I have tried to starch the facric before I fused and cut out the shapes to see if I got less fraying.  It worked.  I got this tip from the following blog http://www.rileyblakedesigns.com/cutting-corners/2012/02/13/i-applique/.  The hardest part was finding Sta-Flo liquid starch. 

I have also decided that I have lived in the Great North West for 10 years, when I moved here 10 years ago with my husband at the time it was only to be 2 years my how time flies when you love your work and have great friends.  I have made a decision it is time to move closer to family.  I have a two year plan only because it cost so much to move from Alaska.  Today I'm looking a Georgia, however I also love Charleston, South Carolina but who knows I only have two requirements (1) I can find a teaching job, (2) the housing markets is good as in I can buy a house that is big enough for all my stuff.

Here area a few pictures of the wall quilts that I have been working on

Soda Pop QAL---

I got all my 5" squares cut and my petals fused, traced and cut-out.  Next set is to sew the squares together.  I hope to have it done by the end of the week-- here is what the first 5 rows look like

All I can say is that I love it so far.  More to come
