Last year some time, I won this hera marker and some fat quarter’s from Kathy's Quilts. I have been putting off using, it partly because marking a quilt top is not one of my favorite things to do. I guess, I just didn’t see how pressing a crease into fabric would last very long, and all my work would be in vain. It works by running it across the fabric on a hard surface like a table. A lot of the background of my scrappy star quilt is a bias grid. The hera marker is perfect for this application, since you can run it next to a long quilting ruler and mark away. It works wonderfully. My only regret is that I waited this long to try it, the marks are easily seen and lasts even after hooping and rehooping. It is not a very expensive notion, and it will definitely pay for itself when you consider what blue water soluble pens cost.
Now I need to pull out those fat quarters and turn them into a mini quilt, my wall still has a lot of space on it.
