Quilting Tip - Marking Quilting Lines
I just love the texture quilting straight lines gives to bags, pouches and quilts.
For quilts, I go 'organic' which simply means I don't worry whether my lines are straight. The organic nature really gives it uniqueness.
But for bags, I do want those lines to be straight. Instead of marking the fabric with a water soluble pen, I use a Clover Hera Marker,
I use that rounded edge to mark the lines.
Mark your first quilting line by measuring the distance you want from the edge of the fabric and then take it to your machine and sew.
Then, line up your ruler to your stitches and mark the other lines.
It works great and there are no lines to 'erase' once you are done.
The pointed edge of the Clover Hera Marker is also useful for getting a nice edge on bags after you turn things inside out. More on that another day!
Have you ever drawn your quilting lines this way?
Have a wonderful day! Patty
