I thought some of our quilters would enjoy knowing about this product. How fun it would be to custom color and write your information on the label, each one unique. They remind me of the beautiful coloring books that are popular. Besides, we spend many hours making our quilts creative, so why not the label too?
I have recently taken an online course on Walking Foot Quilting, and love how quick, easy, and beautiful it can be. This short video shows 4 designs that you might consider to do some yourself, or catch up on your projects.
I would like to add that in the course I took, they suggested a stitch length of 2.75, and of course you don't have to make the lines so close together. For a bigger project, I often use straight lines that are 2 or 3 inches apart, or sometimes even more. You still get the great look if appropriate to the dimensions of the project, and it takes a lot less time.
Thank you to one of our members, Mary Ann, for suggesting this video on cutting fabric for bias binding. The video is easy to follow and gives you another technique to make your project easier.
