Thanks Golo again.. I have been working nights so checking at night not able during the day cause I have no pc at home I have to wait till I get to work!!

I have to get the Geek man in to fix my PC that costs precious quilting money!!

I will send out my address when it is closer to the date and fill out the complete details with a locked post that way everyone is clear.. since we are a closed forum by invitation only I guess I can post my address on here eh??

Thanks to those that have put in for the swap this is going to be alot of fun!!

Got the most perfect boarder fabric for the globes when we get them all done and back I will try to find a link and post what it looks like..I just love it.. DH really liked it too...

Thanks for letting me know to those that have my address... is anyone else picking out and and done any of their blocks yet?? I have mine done and put them with my Asian blocks so that I don't lose them.. you just would not believe my Creative Room right now.. you can tell there is a creator at work!! I am making yo'yo's right now for a quilt called Yo Yoville by Bunnyhill designs (I only need 197 of them) and have most done and have 60 appliqued already onto their little squares.. Iknow a little off topic...

Please read again.. it is NOT white on white is off white fabric... so a light beige if it has some little decoration as long as the globe is the focal point and the background does not take over.. mine is a good example of xmas background that had done.. you can see it on my blog and click on the picture to get a BIGGER view..

so it is not white on white but off white... thanks

a good way to think of your background is like a wall paper.. remember these snow globes are normally sitting in your living room for others to enjoy.. so there would be some wall paper background right??

Betweens.... I made a couple of templates out of cereal box cardboard and am wondering if we are suppose to cut on the BOLD SOLID line or cut on the dotted outer line?? scratch

We are also cutting out the inside of the globe fusible and just leaving about 1/4" of fusible as an outline of the globe ...right? that way it won't be so stiff.

I went back and read some of the directions posted...nothing was said about the globes or stands with ref to fusing....but it did say to eliminate the seam allowance for the scallop border...so I am assuming that you do the same for the globe and stand...that means I would cut my template on the BOLD SOLID line....right? don't want to do these and have them be smaller than everyone elses Thud

The globe should be cut on the dark line this is the original size of the globe when you are fusing blocks they are usually cut to size the "rough edge" of the piece is appliqued down by machine after.. so yes to the bold line...so there is no need for seam allowances...

Suggestion was made to cut the fusible only if it is a stiff fusible but most will be using a light fusible hopefully so that will make things easier
