On the last episode (The Minutia of Quilting) I spoke of several items that I have been using to better my applique preparations.
The color shapers are invaluable for use with the starch method of preparing applique shapes. They would also work really well for the glue method.
I have also found that the combination of photo software (paint shop pro, for example) and Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software allows me to create unique applique designs and cut them out straight onto freezer paper and voila! Perfectly cut applique templates.
I’m in love.

I have (sadly) started to go through my stashes of craft supplies, both from the fabric/quilty world and the paper/mixed media world. I simply cannot fathom MOVING all of that to another State!
What’s even more shocking is that I have accumulated all of this stuff WHILE living in California for the last 5 years – yikes!
So – if you head over to Etsy – within a quarter inch – you will find fabrics. SPECIAL FOR PODCAST LISTENERS AND BLOG READERS (JUST CONVO ME THROUGH ETSY) ANY SET OF FABRICS WILL BE ONLY $10.00 RATHER THAN $15.95! Come on now, you have to admit that is a great price! Sold out!
You will also find some great scrap bags of fabric – and the special is buy one get one free!!Sold out!
Over on EBAY I am selling the mixed media craft supplies (paints, glues, walnut crystals, a collection of 32 (basically unused) twinkling H2O’s, etc).
Because of how Ebay works, I can’t do anything about the final prices, but if you do win one of the auctions – then include in the comment box during checkout that you are a listener and I will ADD MORE GOOD STUFF to your box (no extra shipping!).
Thanks for your support everyone!
