Losing My Marbles

This is the quilt I've decided to make to start off the new year!  It's Losing My Marbles
by Kaffe Fassett.  The pattern is in his book, Quilts in Italy.  I bought a kit from
Glorious Color and am now awaiting receiving it.  This will be fun!

I've decided to applique the circles using used dryer sheets and have several friends
saving theirs for me as I don't really do that much laundry.  This is how it works:

1. Trace the pattern you want to applique on the dryer sheet.  I place the sheet
on a piece of sandpaper which helps stabilize it.
2. Place is on the right side of the fabric and stitch all the way around.
3. Trim the dryer sheet/fabric.
4. Slit the dryer sheet.
5. Turn it inside out.
6. Applique

It's a little more time consuming but it's worth it.  The quilt has 115 circles and I
expect it will take me a while to finish it.
