Last week I dropped by the Quilt and Craft Fair that came to Melbourne. As well as seeing the amazing quilts on display, I went hunting for quilting supplies.
Specialty rulers and templates were a bit of a revelation to me. I'd never used one before I made my kaleidoscope quilt. When I discovered the difference they can make to accurate piecing I was hooked. So I'm now on the lookout for other nifty rulers and devices that make my quilting better.
One of my purchases at the fair was a set of pickle dish templates. These are fun! And I love sewing pieces that have the corners trimmed. It makes for quick and easy alignment.
Look at these little piles of loveliness. I pulled all the happy fabrics from my stash. Clear and bright fabrics that look fresh and cheery against the white.
Yum. Now I'm off to join them together.
My house is a mess. There are little snippets of fabric all over the carpet. I'm covered in threads and I haven't eaten lunch. But I'm happy as a lark while I potter in my studio for the day, playing with fabric and listening to Pandora. Life is sweet.
What's your favourite quilting tool? I've got a few. I'll share with you my other purchases in a future post soon.
