When I was designing the butterfly quilt for Christine @ Once Upon A Quilt's scrap bag challenge I was inspired by this project.
from the blue chair. I proceeded to cut all the squares needed for my butterfly quilt and then went in search of the Pellon product that Kati used. Unfortunately it was not yet available in Australia (and not easy to find anywhere else either!), so I went ahead and made the quilt without it (because I'd already cut out all those 1 3/4" squares. What was I to do?).
I had been in correspondence with Kati and shared my woe at not being able to use the Pellon Stick-N-Washaway for all those little squares. As we were soon to flit off to the US for a holiday I mentioned that I would look for some Pellon while there. Kati very kindly offered to send me some of the Pellon that she had spare. Sure enough, when we arrived in the US a very lovely package from Kati was waiting for me. Kati included an extra surprise - some lovely scraps!

First of all I laid out my squares on the sticky side of the Pellon. It helped to peg the Pellon to my cutting mat. I used pegs, as my Clover clips are the small size and not quite large enough for this task.
Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
