Last night I spent some time free motion quilting those sandwiches..you know batting sandwiched between fabric…thought I had better start practicing…and boy do I suck!! This is going to take a lot of practicing and it’s not going to happen over night!!
Then I read Dawnie’s Blog, Itching for Stitching. After reading Peg’s blog, Dawnie went out and bought a Quilt Pounce by Nancy…here’s her picture for marking her quilting pattern~
Well bells and whistles went off- I HAVE one of those powder pounces and forgot all about it- I bought it YEARS ago…so I poked around in the cupboard and found the pounce and all kinds of things that might help me in the quilting process. Thanks Gwen (and Peg) for the reminder!! Blogging buddies are the best!
I was at a Quilt Show with some Quilting Friends…we watched the lady demo the Pounce and of course we were ALL sold…we all bought one on the spot!! hmmm…I wonder if they have used theirs yet…it’s only been 4 or 5 years…? :o)
These are the plastic templates that can be used with the pounce.
I also found this paper stencil..you pin it onto your quilt and quilt right on top…
Now if I could only find a Stitch Regulator hiding in my cupboard!! :o)
But alas…even with all the gizmos and gadgets…it still comes down to…practice…practice…practice..
Have a super Sunday and Happy Quilting!~P
