Not Long Now

The final large "The Wish Quilt" block is finished.  Hooray!


I had a few problems tracing the Santa and sleigh design onto the green stripe fabric so, after some discussion with a friend, I traced the design onto Solvy and stitched through that.  It has worked really well but could probably do with another rinse as the linen still feels a bit stiff.  I'm using Solvy for the little floral sprays on the red background too.  This isn't the sticky Solvy that I've seen recently on some blogs, it's the Solvy I use for machine embroidery.  I hope to find the sticky Solvy at the Quilt Show next week because printing directly from the scanner to the Solvy would be great in many instances.

4 little blocks to go and I'll be done!

Love the design, yes it is a bit too detailed to freehand the design, I was going to suggest a transfer pencil but it sounds like you found the perfect thing to use

Hi Lynda, Have you ever tried "Press and Seal" a product by Glad.It is actually used for baking, it works really well and will stick by itself to fabric, it then peels away.Worth a try.

The Wish Quilt is looking fantastic! Great problem solving, I have never used either of the solvy's.....
