Oh I joined the group . . . a while ago. You have to commit to making a quilt at some point. So I’m committed to someday. This weekend, in slow, slow preparation for making the quilt some day, I made myself some templates to work with.
I used some overhead transparencies, Sharpies and some left over peel and stick window frosting stuff I had lying around.
This isn’t the best picture but I peeled off the window frosting and stuck it to the overheads. It give it a look like vellum but it’s way sturdier I think. I could have traced the pattern twice and maybe saved some of the frosted stuff in the process but I was being too lazy to cut things out twice. There are a lot of bits and pieces to this thing!
Then I just took my Sharpie and traced around the pieces making all the important markings. Skipped the ruler bit, again, lazy.
I even got fancy and used a different colour for each of the 4 sections of the circle. With the seam marked on the pieces and being able to see through the pieces it will be really easy to make sure I catch the part of the print I want to highlight.
Just call me Little Miss Fancy Pants why dontcha?
