New Project: Update

In an email, Debbie of Stitchin' Therapy (link) asked if I was going to use fusible interfacing for the wall hanging project. 

At first, I didn't understand... and then the light went on!  Nope, not just a light... but an entire stadium full o' lights!

I had used a pattern to make Midi tote bags (link) that used printed fusible interfacing to speed up piecing of the fabric squares.

Thank you for the timely reminder, Debbie!!!  


I needed more fusible interfacing than I had on hand so picked some up yesterday.   Then, I got to work...

I used a length of the interfacing the width of the hanging and got all the squares ironed on.  It was neat that the ironed on squares stayed when hanging over the edge of the ironing board.

Now... I'm ready to start stitching!   This is going to be sooooo much easier than piecing one square at a time.

Did I say THANK YOU yet, Debbie???


  1. LOL!! Yes, you are so welcome! And the wall hanging is just beautiful, even unsewn.

  2. It's going to be a-ma-zing! :o)

  3. Beautiful work, Freda!
    Debbie is always so good to share her skills and pointers.

  4. How lovely! I'm curious about the sewing method now. Seams, or applique style?

  5. Please show the steps... I've not used that method, I think I've seen it on TV years ago, but haven't ever tried it.
    Thank you Debby & Freda.
