My Flowers

Hello from Canada

So nice to join you all, I am working on my first flower right this minute!  I hope to have some pictures tonight to show you.  Ladies, your flowers are so pretty...

If you use the glue method (I am having to use a glue stick) do you still have to tack the corners down before you whip them together?  Have a wonderful day.

Sue... I don't tack anything... just glue!

I just glue and I dont end my thread at all until the very end of the flower. Leanne gives you this tip in Vignette. What I do when I finish stitching one side together, is then tack (through just the fabric - not through the paper) until I get to another side that needs to be sewn together..... There is no worries then, that your stitching will unravell!

OK, thanks for your help, I have made 1 flower, these hexagons take some cutting out, hope to get another done today, work is getting in the way....

I only use glue sow quick and I stack up my fabric and cut a heep at one time.

I've managed to find the Magazine, I should get it tomorrow (Thursday in Canada) also a fabric glue pen, not the one you are all using though, I hope mines OK, if it is I'll let you know what its called. I have made 4 flowers now, hope to post the pictures tomorrow as well.
