re: using freezer paper as a template ON TOP of the applique fabric. ........ very intriguing idea.   Keep us posted on your opinions.

I'm afraid I didn't explain it well.  I had to read the section a couple of times before I figured out what she was doing.  You iron it to the right side first, cut the piece out.  Then remove it and put it on the back of the fabric, shiny side up.  then press.  The scary part is clipping curves.  that's the only part I don't like.  You have to clip when it's stuck on the front, then take it off and move to the back.  I don't like that, I've had to redo a couple of patches because my clips were too close to the fold.  Also I'm used to very small seam allowances from needle turn, that were too small to pull around for prepared edge.  Maybe a couple of spots of glue on the wrong side to hold it then clip.  I'm thinking I'll kind of test different methods on this quilt.  

and good golly, there is an entire wreath of holly leaves, 6 pointy tips on every one.  sigh.  At least there aren't very many inside points.  But some of those holly leaves aren't going to be as acute points as she's drawn them.

Martha Nordstrand used sticker paper...and turned the edges with glue and tiny screwdrivers...I would use my Appliquick tools now instead of the tiny screwdrivers...

I finished up a few more tops that will be in line to be quilted.  One of these days.  A while back Jonna shared a paper piece

d pattern that I really liked and I shared the one block I made.  This is the completed top

And this is the dots and dashes pattern that Judy in Ohio was thinking of doing.  Only I did mine with a black background. Not sure why it went sideways.

That is really scrumptious, Lynne!!

I'll get in line at the charity so someone will give me that one someday if  you'll just give me a clue where you are going to donate it.  LOL

My goodness, you are a veritable speed demon when it comes to turning out these quilt tops! That is very, very pretty with the black background.
