My attention to this blog has been lacking lately as I'm still hunkered down working on a special project that is SLOWLY coming together. To say I'm focused is an understatement, in part that's due to the complicated process the design requires.First let me say, I'm not generally a fuser....give me turned edges over raw ones any day of the week. But here's a tip that may come in handy for you someday when you are fusing.
This view of an area on the quilt doesn't appear complicated at all does it? Yet exact placement of the motifs was vital. I came up with this idea a number of years ago while creating a quilt where much of the designing with fused motifs was done while it was on the design wall.
So....how to transfer a biggish piece to the pressing surface while keeping all the motifs exactly in place?
'Fuse tack' them with a hot Clover mini iron. It's easy to get into small areas to work around pins. (These strips are a scant 1/4" wide). The pieces are fused just enough to hold in place before transferring the entire top from the design wall to the ironing board for final pressing.
Perhaps this method can be helpful to you someday too.
