    Cindy Blackberg, a Tennessee quilting teacher, makes and sells quilting "stamps" for a variety of quilting templates: triangles, squares, bows, and the like that allows one to "stamp" a template onto fabric (colour for lights, white, for darks) complete with 1/4 inch seam allowance. A quilter's dream!

    She has her own website at: http://www.cindyblackberg.com

    For those wishing to purchase these stamps from other countries, you will find her stamps for sale at:

    http://www.pappysquilting.com/

    Just click on "online catalog" then on"books & patterns" to bring up Cindy's page.

    Happy Quilting!

    Do you stamp on the fabric then cut with scissors? I'm not sure I understand the proper usage of this product.

    I took a class from her at the Houston Intl Quilt Festival and she was wonderful! Can't remember the square name I did (is was some kind of star), but bought the stamp/pad. We stamped the fabric as I remember and cut it out and hand pieced them onto a piece of muslin. My points were perfect and it was so relaxing to do and easy to carry with you anywhere.

    IT'S JUST LIKE PAPER PIECING--BUT STAMPED ON MUSLIN INSTEAD OF PAPER.

    These aren't like Lesley Claire's stamps. (Her's were the forerunner of paper foundation piecing.) My template stamps are rubber stamps mounted on wood that you stamp on the back of your individual fabrics, then cut out the different shapes and piece them together. No more template tracing! I use fabric ink (available in brown and white). I have different stamps and sets of stamps on my website. Cindy (www.cindyblackberg.com)

    I took my first quilting classes in the early 80s. The instructor had these rubber stamps and ink pads and we bought them from her. I'm not sure, but I think she had them made up ay a local office supply store. They looked just like these stamps except that they had the big wooden knob on them like old office stamps. I still have them. I have a diamond (for 8 point star), a dresden plate stamp, squares and triangles. So, who knows who really "invented" them, but they have been around for a LONG time... which doesn't make them any less desirable today. I think that way back then they were just harder to find because no one was mass marketing them (and there was no internet, or at least not what we have today!)
