Today I'll be working on a scrappy quilt top made of triangles that were donated to the quilt guild scrap bin. I had enough to make a layout that I liked but wasn't sure how to finish the edges. After looking at it for a while on the design wall I just couldn't chop off the diamond sides.
So I decided to fold the edges of the triangles, and hand appliqued the sides onto a strip of muslin.
My friend Debby had a Clover product called a fabric folding pen and I tried it out to fold the edges of the triangles. It was a little tricky to get the right amount of fluid to come out, and a couple of my triangles were too wet. Eventually I think I was using the right amount but it really did not seem to make enough of a difference in folding the edges to justify the $22. Have you tried this product? If you have any tips or comments, I'd love to hear your experience with this product. I hope to get these the two sides of this quilt appliquéd and ready to add another border.
What are you stitching by hand today?
