Any non-sewing items that you use for quilting?
there was a question on using a fork to make pleats. Intrigued myself, I googled it and found this:
She does it while sewing, but I suppose it could be pre-pinned or basted as well. Also, for smaller pleats, maybe it's as simple as using a smaller fork, like a lobster fork.
I once saw a crib quilt and the border was pleated, it was quite different and added so much to the quilt.
Just wanted to share.
