I'm looking for a tool ..looks like a half inch button with one hole in the middle. You stick a pencil in the hole and run it along
the edge of somthing and it makes a mark at 1/4 inch..Saw one at a meeting ,been searching for one for a long time.
Hope somone has some info....ssuzz
The description reminds me of spirograph!
I have one...but I don't have any idea where it is right now...
Hope someone else will have it...
I works great to add seam allowance to a pattern
I have one. I think I ordered it from either Nancy's Notions or Keepsake Quilting. I don't think I've ever used it. It's easier to take a ruler and mark another 1/4 inch line.
I have one and I think I know where it is! If i find it you're welcome to it!
wow that would be great I do a lot of curves , not so easy to just mark with a ruler ssuzz
Is it like a small copper washer with a hole in the middle.
They are great for adding seam allowance to odd shaped pieces when using a template. They were (and may still be) available in 1/8", 1/4" and some larger sizes.
It's called the Quilter's Wonder Wheel:
It costs just a couple of bucks (or less).
it amazes me .just ask a question and up pops an answer
If you take two pencils and rubber band them next to each other you will get two pencil lines that are 1/4" apart. You can trace around curves or straight line. Works great and it cheap and available.
Hope this helps.
