Fortunately I used EQ5 to help design the quilt....so was able to print a copy and draw/write all over it!

this one.jpg

That has made life easier. It uses plain fabrics on a pale grey background!! Rx

Hi. Our quilt guild is hosting a special day tomorrow and we all have to bring our favorite quilting gadget. What would yours be? I am taking my safety pin fastener that I use when I pin a large quilt. I have a couple of favorites but in general I'm not a big fan of gadgets.

Does a sewing machine count as a gadget? Rx

Our (great) grandmothers would have thought so Rosemary, so I don't see why not.

I'd not heard of that one Brenda.

Mine is my rotary cutter (and mat please).

My sewing machine is a gadget I suppose but it's really just my third arm! It's never far away and always in use.

Jayne, the fastener is great when you have a big quilt to pin out. I always put my pin is but don't fasten them until I've finished. That way if I make a mistake I don't have to unpin it all. I'll take a picture and post it here over the weekend.

Hi Brenda,

My first time back on here for a long while - chaotic life to blame. However, my favourite gadget is my “special” unpicker which is a fairly standard one EXCEPT for the “rubberry” end which is for rubbing on your unpicked seam line and it lifts all of the unpicked threads away. Magic and I wouldn’t be without it now. Hope your quilt day goes well.
Cheers,
Margaret/Winnie

Not sure why "I" am so bold and large - didn't think my "return: was all that important!!
