Does anyone out in "blogland" have one of these beautiful quilts? It is from my first swap (AOL scale miniature group) from 1999! and one of my most cherished minis. I know some of the signers are still around because I recognize some names. If I remember correctly, all swappers sent 3-4 squares of small print fabric to a miniaturist in Australia who offered to sew then together for a quilt. We signed it with name, city, state/county and the year. And this is what we got in return. I was so thrilled at how it turned out! For many years it's just been laying on the bed in my lighthouse but the other day I decided to form it to the bed so it would lay more natural.
Now it you think this is an endorsement for Stiffen Stuff, you're right.
I also stiffened some bows for a more natural "hanging" look. Just make sure that the pins are inside the loop hole and don't pierce the ribbon. For the tails, cut them 1/2 longer than needed. For these you will be piercing the ribbon. When completely dry, just trim.
Well, this was just a short update as to what I've been up to since my last post. Now, It's vacation time! Til next time...
