Need a little help?
How many times have you gone to cut out your fabric and
realised that your shape is the wrong way round, or the wrong size?
I've done it myself too many times to count and know only to well
how heartbreaking it is to mark up a beautiful piece of fabric
incorrectly. Help is at hand, though - you can get hold of a
special fabric pen and eraser duo set that allows you to mark out
templates accurately and sharply, safe in the knowledge that you
can remove your markings without damaging your fabric if you go
wrong. I for one am a convert! As I know that lots of you are
completely new to quilting I reckon this could be an invaluable bit
to add to your kit, it'll definitely save a bit of worry when you
come to marking your templates out...
Luckily, the lovely people at eqsuk.com have sent
us some sets to give away, so email me at the usual address
(firstname.lastname@example.org) with the answer to my Wednesday
giveaway question plus your postal address and you could be in
luck! So, how many fabrics will you receive with issue 4 of the
I don't know if any of you have noticed that I've added another
project to the Members Zone for subscribers to download -
these added extras are ideal for using up any scraps of fabric you
have lying around and also make fabulous gifts, so go ahead and
check them out. And don't forget to check in on the Your projects
page as there have been some gorgeous things sent in in the last
couple of weeks, I'm a big fan of the colourful quilts you've been
working on in particular, and the smaller things show just how
versatile patchwork can be!
I'll pick the competition winners on Monday, good luck!
