    Tip for experimenting with a quilt pattern

    I found a great way to experiment with a quilt pattern!

    Make a picture of your quilt and print it in color full page.
    Then use transparents (that were used for overheadprojectors) and lay one on your picture. Take a Sharpie or a dvd-marker and draw on the transparent. This way you can try several patterns.

    Some use transparents directly on their quilt. I wouldn't try that, as Sharpie is hard to remove from fabric!

    Have fun quilting!

    I use dry erase markers(washable from joanns) and a piece of plexi glass, right on top of my quilt top, sometimes while its on the frame.

    If you are layin pexiglass or transparents directly on your quilt, tape aroung the edges with a color tape, like blue painters tape. You now know where the edges are and are less likely to go off the edge onto your quilt.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye
