When All Else Fails

…read the instructions.

I usually do read the instructions but I was impatient and thought I knew what I was doing.

I was making a fabric portrait from a sketch I had done on my iPad.  I had hand appliqued the first quilted face I did (here) and wanted do more.  For this one I was using iron on adhesive  and I couldn’t get it to stick.  After talking to some friends who had used  the product (HeatnBond) and reading the instructions I realized that I was using too hot an iron.  Everything went smoothly after I lowered the heat setting on my iron.
