I have not had the opportunity to start my quilt blocks yet because I have another big hand applique that I have been working on, but I love everything about this quilt and I can't wait to get it started. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Amazingly beautiful detailed work! You are the master!

Erin, I think that tool is available from Pearl Pereira (www.p3designs.com); she calls it her "Applique and Pressing Tool" , and it is available at her website for $15.00. (Is it the same tool?)

Alex Anderson also sells a tool, 4-in one, with a seam ripper, seam presser, that pointy top and a stiletto. I purchased it at one of her seminars but I assume it is available via the web. I use it for my applique every day!!

I was going to say that your magic tool looks very much like the one Alex Anderson sells. She has it on her site here

While that picture on her site has a small picture, she did a youtube video when it was first released. You can see it here much larger http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cuYTNAdlZk

Thanks for the helpful information! Gotta get me a tool :D

May I say you have illustrated these steps simply and beautifully. Good angle. Great details. Thank you.

Erin, thank you for another great tutorial. I love your patterns and am saving Mimi for next year.

Hi Erin, thank you so much for this tutorial and the one on the starch freezer paper applique method. These have been very helpful for the Chester County Criswell quilt that I am working on:

Your post was very timely as the Double Tulip block had many 'pointy points'. Thanks for sharing your skills, techniques and beautiful work.
