I am getting better at making the curves rounder, took a few to get the hang of it. I am not going to let a few out of 128 bug me...well not bug me too badly.

I now have 8 blocks done! Only two are the revers swirls, I will work on them next.

The glue is AWESOME! Holds them "like glue" while I am sewing them to the background. No gummy needles, no shifting, no problems whatsoever!

I used a water soluble pen to draw the swirls and it is making smudges on some of the lighter fabrics. I am not too happy about that and I hope it washes out!

here are some of the first ones. They will not be in this order in the quilt, they just happen to be the only revers swirls done yet!

Oh neat. I like them. I especially like the blue/orange one. The pink/green one is also good. Love the Dr. S. one.
What glue did you decide on?

Edited to add: Hey, that black with the colored dots is in MY house too. I was going to use it for the quilt for my FIL before he passed away. I have it all cut out and ready to sew. It is nice to see the same fabric in your swirls. Made me feel really good, Cat.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Thanks Learn! I am actually really having fun with this, 128 different fabrics to play with!

I am using Elmer's washable glue. The stuff is awesome. I got a gallon of it and a tiny little bottle with a metal precision applicator tip to put it into to use it on the quilt..

That orange was one of the first fabrics I saw that I just HAD to have for this quilt!

I was very happy I had the blue to pair it with, so far that one and Dr Seuss are my favorites!
