1) The fusible web is not sticking to the background fabric: All the fabrics you use must be 100% cotton or the fusible web may not take to it. An ideal fabric for use as a background is Homespun which is available at all fabric suppliers.

2) The fusible web is not sticking to a piece: The fabric must be 100% cotton for the glue in the fusible web to stick to it. Fabric with other than cotton in it may act oddly; it may shrink on ironing or sometimes even shrivel, it may not take to the glue at all. Even if the fusible web holds the fabrics together lightly it will probably be OK to sew the pieces in place.

3) It is hard to remove the paper off the fusible web from some pieces: A pin can make it easier to lift the paper off. Poke the point of the needle under the paper and lift it up so that you can get your finger under it to lift it off. If this doesn't help then you could warm the piece with a warm iron and then quickly lift the paper.

4) My blocks are different sizes:  As you sew sometimes the stitching will pull things in a little and therefore blocks with more stitching may end up a bit smaller than the others. The main thing is to trim all the blocks to the same size before starting the quilting process.

5) Where can I get more of the stone block fabric? If this is the special fabric that came with Block 6 then I found it at Sew Excited in Maclean NSW. You could phone Nell there (02 6645 1234) and I'm sure she will help you
6) Is there a list of shops where I can buy the blocks? The only shop with the blocks is my local sewing place, Sew Excited in Maclean NSW. Another  way you can buy the blocks is to try eBay or go to the purchase page on this website where you can use my bank details and I will mail the blocks to you.
