It’s Tuesday! I am so excited for todays tip! I have spent hours trying to figure out why I could not load videos, and I figured it out! So be prepared, I could get stuck on videos! Also we have a new employee, Sabrina, who is fabulous at shooting videos, so I have an assistant in this task! Thanks Sabrina! 🙂
So today I am going to show you a quick trick I use to mark a line 1/2″ away from a curved seam. It involves a little tool, called 5 in one Sliding Guide from Clover. By the way this ruler is fabulous, I use it for lots of things. We carry this tool in our store: http://qfth.ca/catalogsearch/result/?q=9506
I simply place a marking pen in the slot of the guide, which is at about 1/2″. Then I run the 1″ mark of the guide along the seam, marking as I go. It is hard to explain, so watch the video….
Fast, easy and so fun!
Now I just use a straight ruler to stitch along this mark….
Notice how I paused to fill areas this line isolated as I went! I like to find ways to avoid stops and starts.
That’s it for today! Till next week’ I will be quilting a gorgeous Japaneese Fan Quilt! I do love what I do!
