Fixing White Poinsette Pattern

I turned my red poinsettia quilt into a white poinsettia about 2 years ago, I love the red, but it is too intense for my all-blue house and Christmas tree. But the white is perfect. The problem is, where did I put that darn quilt?  So the hunting began, and when I found it, it was a wrinkled mess with pieces falling off, the Steam-A-Seam was hard and crunchy. yuck!  Has this ever happened to you?  

Well, all is not lost, and in this video, I show how I fixed this quilt.  Steam-A-Seam2 loves steam.  
As I was working on repairing the fusible flower, I had an idea! My granddaughter, who is 4, says this all the time," I have idea."  We squeal with excitement because she has an idea.  Well, so did Mimi and nobody squealed but me. You can always add to your flower quilt. try adding another flower or a decorative design to the background. I did a polka dot background on one quilt. These elements make it yours and add a lot. But they have to be added before you start to quilt. 
So who cares if the quilt is 3-5 years old and you haven't finished it yet? Get out your iron and steam. You can always say you were waiting for an Idea!
