Only months later, as I am taking a photo of it to send it to my sibling that it is meant for, did I see what I had done. The other 2 quilts before it were all different colors, as each sibling had chosen. This one was all black and white. Now, on all 20 blocks of this KING sized quilt, the pattern is not right. It's supposed to be a "heart" shape, inside white and then black borders and binding. But I used black pieces as well...and now the hearts don't look like hearts at all , so sad ! My sister says she still wants it...but I cannot let it go out of this house like this.
SO, all that to say, I thought I would applique better colors right on top of the wrong ones. Which will mean at least 4 pieces on every single block. I think this would be the fastest fix. But I've never done it, never used the iron on sew on turn right side out method....any help ? advice on a good brand of the paper-iron on product ? Thank you for any help at all !! Bearmaker51

also, I suggest putting an old towel on your iron board cover and also something between your iron and heat and bond.. I use an old scrap piece of fabric.. the sticky stuff, if it overlaps and touches your iron or board when heated will leave sticky stuff behind..
make sure to post a picture, I'd love to see it.

You can find it many places on line, but the one I use is called Threads of Time.
