The hunt for the “perfect” marking technique continues…..
A few years back, I bought a “hera marker”. The little gadget was described as something useful for marking pieces for applique – since I have completely abandoned applique, the hera marker was forgotten. While I was looking for different ideas for quilt marking, I visited Mama Love Quilts by Nicole and her Easy Peasy Quilt Marking Tutorial.
it is probably a little easier on the hands for major marking. I will be adding this to my shopping list.
Both hera marker photos are from Clover USA.
Using my little hera gadget, I spent a couple of hours planning and marking the shabby chic quilt – I already knew that I would be doing straight lines about 1.5″ apart. The marks are crisp and easy to see now … but … when the top is ready for quilting will the lines hold up?
