Hi Everyone!

We would like to welcome our Sew Daily readers to our blog!  In honor of all you stitchers, sewers, and quilters…here’s a beautiful baby quilt created by our design team member, Jenifer Cowles! We all know little girls are made of sugar and spice…but also wings and a pinch of fairy dust!


This beautiful quilt features our new spray adhesive, SpraynBond Basting Adhesive, to make quick work of the design and applique work! Simply spray the backs of the butterflies and then arrange your quilt. If you don’t like the placement of some of the butterflies, simply move them! After you have the arrangement where you like, sew them into place. The adhesive will actually wash out of the material when you launder the quilt.

SpraynBond butterfly quilt
SpraynBond Basting Adhesive was used to design and attach the butterflies!

Customize this beautiful quilt for the little girl in your life! Change the patterns, the colors or even the shapes to gear it towards your sweetheart’s favorites…






Here is the PDF pattern for the butterflies used on the quilt!

    I found you through Sew Daily email that I receive. I am really interested in the spray and bond technique for applique. Looks like a winner…would love to try it. Currently, I use a glue dot technique, but the glue always gets messy. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I love this quilt – it’s definitely on my “make this” list. I think I’ll make the butterflies in blues and purples!

    I love butterflies and this is a great way to secure them for machine or hand stitching them or any other applique item.

    I came over from the Sew Daily newsletter. I have used the spray for basting quilts, but had not considered it for appliques.

    i really like working with my hands because i get more satisfaction out of my work, be it quilting, collage or papier mache’. i’ve recently become enchanted with english paper piecing and want to learn more hand skills by making a pieced runner using the hexagon shape. i really like applique and have always liked the needle turned method. but since seeing all of the different bonding products from therm o web i just might change my mind and try an easier and perhaps more presice way of appliqueing. in any case, thanks for the information on the therm o web products.
