In the continuing saga of how to quilt my “woodpile” quilt, I posted on Tuesday that I had decided to start with some large triangles that would tie the 3 smaller triangle sets together…..
Now it was time to figure out how to tie the large triangles together. In order to try out a bunch of different ideas, I pinned the quilt to my design wall and covered it with a cheap clear, plastic shower curtain, making sure that it extended well beyond the edge of the quilt….
Using a water-soluble pen, I proceeded to draw all over the quilt, trying different design ideas as I went…..
When I was finished, I misted the shower curtain with water…..
….and cleaned it off with a paper towel…..
…..leaving me with a clean surface to start on all over again!!
I had used this system on small blocks but never on a whole quilt and it proved to be an amazing tool!!
And it only cost $1!!!!
Do you have any “unusual” tools that you use in your quilting studio??
