Crazy the wastage though in both fabric and thread isn't it when you do these big projects.
There are so many tools for marking quilts that it is hard to choose. The special markers marketed to quilters are a bit expensive I find. I've read some quilters use Crayola Ultra thin washable markers and love how they get a nice bright line to follow that will safely wash out later on.
What do you use to mark quilting lines?
One of the blogs I follow suggested this tool; Generals Sketch and Wash graphite pencils. A box of 12 cost me about $17 from Amazon.ca which seems like good value for the money. You can look up the reviews; many quilters have contributed favourable ones.
I need the security of marked lines to follow so I will certainly be trying these. When I do, I'll let you know how they fare.
This story circulated on Facebook garnering a lot of 'likes'. Something to smile about.
Maryjane Wapachee in Quebec lost her glasses while making bannock. Blamed everyone in the house she said.
I used to make bannock when I lived in the far north. Haven't made it for years.
Meanwhile, I hope there is something to smile about in your weekend.
