Gun from Sweden asked how to use the heramarker from my post about tools.
I have tried to find Gun on internet to respond to her question, have not found her yet.
So here is a quick tutorial on how I use it:
I make a sandwich from top, batting and backing. The heramarker is great for marking straight lines guided by a ruler.
Put ruler on top in the direction you want the quilting to go. Let the heramarker slide along edge of the ruler. You need to push down fairly hard, and make sure the ruler don`t move. I do this on my kitchentable, it is low enough to not strain my shoulders.
You should get a shiny line in the fabric now.
On this project I basted the sandwich after making the quilting lines.
Now it is easy to quilt along these lines, and there is no need to rinse or wash out any markings.
I hope you see this, Gun.
PS! This is the first time I have made a tutorial, so if anyone see some information I left out or described wrong, please feel free to correct it.
