Press’n SealMay 26, 2006
I am trying a new technique for auditioning quilting patterns on a quilt. I am using Glad Press’n Seal. The Press’n Seal is transparent so it is easy to see the quilt through it and it lightly sticks in place and leaves no visible residue when I remove it. (Visible being a key word here; I don’t know yet what will happen over time…)
I have been drawing on the Press’n Seal with a permanent marker usually at the drawing table and then move it to the quilt. I have also tried drawing right on the Press’n Seal on top of the quilt and the marker did not bleed through onto the quilt…just don’t draw off the edge!!!
A mentor of mine has told me that I can make copies of the final design and use them to sew through while quilting. The pieces then just peel off. I haven’t tried that yet.
Has anyone else tried this method?
