You seem to forget the mister has nonsense of humor, especially about basketball...so I did as you suggested, asked him about the 1-3-1 zone thingy and he said, Since Ive never seen Mercer play I cant answer that! Very matter of fact and then when I had nothing more to add he took that as a sign to educate me...on the phone as he is in San Diego for the tournament...um...so thanks for that! Sent from my iPad

Hi Kathy! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I spray glue I use is Elmers Craft Bone Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive, you can find it at Ben Franklins, Michaels or any craft store. I like it because if you make a mistake you can just peel the fabric up and move it and then restick. Also, it doesnt leave a residue so when the quilt blocks are sewn the needle doesnt stick and it washes completely out once the finished quilt is washed and dried (which I recommend but in cold water with a little vinegar to set the ink.) I made copies of the blocks, once they were signed and put the copies back into the book so the book wouldnt be empty. As my DILs quilt is used and washed some of those signatures will fade so the copy in the book is important! I wish you all the best! xo, Nan To: nans17@hotmail.com
