After procrastinating for nearly two years, I have finally psyched myself up to start quilting my Double Wedding Ring quilt. I had bought one of those powder pounce pad and stencil thinking it would be a great way to mark the quilt. I tried it several times but wasn't at all happy with it.
I found the powder came off too easily. So what did I do? I scanned the stencil, printed it off, cut it out and pasted it onto cardboard. Ta da! One new template with which
I used my favourite frixion pen. I can easily see the lines
and I know they will iron off.
I really don't know why I kept putting this off. I really wanted to hand quilt it as I have hand pieced the top. Maybe it was just a little daunting but I'm feeling much better now I've changed to the frixion pen. So I'm all ready to start quilting this baby when I head off on retreat in about 3 weeks
(unless I get a chance to start sooner).
I was lucky enough to win a charm pack of Helen's
(Hugs From Helen) new fabric range, Basically Hugs. Here are a few of the different charms. They are so lovely.
Thank you, Helen.
And I was Anthea's (Hibiscus Stitches) lucky June
winner for Christmas Through The Year too!
Thank you, Anthea.
