WIP Wednesday [new toy]

I absolutely have to tell you about my new toy - Appliquick rods. Two steel "sticks" with various prongs and shaped ends - one holds the fabric and the other turns the over the seam allowance, using interfacing to create the shape, sticking it down with fabric glue and moulding smooth edges.

All of a sudden I can do consistent applique! Here are the two Dear Jane blocks I have made since buying my "sticks" at the weekend.

Linking up with Work in Progress Wednesday

I spy a Dear Jane in progress.. Lovely blocks. Where are the rods from? I nearly bought some similar ones in Birmingham but wasn't sure how easy to use they would be. Visiting from WIP Weds
