Tip for Applique

First of all let me say that this isn't MY tip.  I'm passing on the link so that you can read it for yourself.  It's a marvelous idea and makes me wonder why I didn't think of it since I work with file folders all day long.  Perhaps that's why.  This idea was posted on Baltimore Garden Quilts Blog.  She has a great blog and lots of eye candy as well as great tips.  Check it out at:

She shows how to take file folders and strips of batting and use them to store and hold your applique pieces.  I think this is a marvelous idea because then you could also write the project name on the file folder tab.

I'll post more later but wanted to share that blog with you now.   I have finished two squares now on my Inspired wall hanging.  I'll take a picture of the finished second piece and show you what I am starting on for the third (of nine) block.

Happy Stitching!
