We have been working hard to finish up our remembrance quilt for this year.
We are using My Father's World - Adventures in US History.
We used the Cricut to cut the state shapes.
Before cutting fabric on the Cricut, I always apply Heat N Bon Ultra to the back of the fabric. This does two things 1) allows the fabric to stick easier to the Cricut mat and 2) turns the fabric into an iron-on applique.
So we cut and cut and cut and cut.
Then ironed and ironed and ironed.
We ended up with the New Elgland states running off the fabric and we forgot to cut Hawaii and North Carolina.
But for the most part our cut and applique process is finished. We actually did not have enough fabric and Heat N Bond left to finish the states. So a trip to Hobby Lobby and an Amazon order is need to finish up tat process.
