Pie Plating in Fountain Green

The ladies of the Pie Plate Pattern company put on an annual Super Spring Retreat. It is held in their small town of Fountain Green, UT. It is about 20 miles Northwest of my home. Always a great time! A very nice, small town retreat.  My friends Lisa and Helen came down to the retreat, so an extra bonus.

It takes 3!
I have never used Mistyfuse and recently there was a special on a hundred yard roll of the stuff. So Lisa and I went in on buying one. Lisa uses it a lot. It took three of us to roll off 50 yards off the roll.

My Mistyfuse
The rolled off bit doesn't look nearly as nice as the factory roll. It will still do its job.

So Lisa gave me a quick demo on how to use the fuse.

On the Goddess sheet
You need to use a Goddess sheet because this fusible web doesn't have paper attached.

You cover it with the Goddess sheet and press the fusible to melt it.

Ready to cut
Lisa brought her Silhouette machine to cut some leaves for me. I asked for her help with a project and thought her machine would cut out the intricate shapes easily.  Well, it was a good theory anyway.

Beautiful leaves!
Lisa designed a lovely page full of leaves for me! SO excited! Let's see how it works!

Unfortunately, Lisa  forgot to bring the fabric blade for the machine. The paper blade kept picking up the fabric and scrunching it and not cutting through it cleanly.  UGH.  So she will take my fused fabrics home with her and cut them at home with the proper blade. So then I can be impressed with that machine.

Block challenge
Everyone got the fabric to a make a block of their choice. We will vote on our favorite and the winner gets to keep all the blocks.

This is my off the wall post for this week. Next week I hope to have something to show after having 2 more days to sew like crazy!


  1. It looks like you had a lot of fun together. I wonder who get the blocks?
