Glad Press 'n Seal

Several people asked how I marked the pumpkin seed design on the table runner that I showed yesterday, so I thought I would share my secret with everyone...Glad Press 'n Seal. Just trace your pattern directly on the Press 'n Seal*, then stick it to your basted quilt top and machine quilt along the lines. Press 'n Seal sticks without pins, is repositionable, leaves no residue on the quilt or your machine and the plastic tears away easily once you're done. Simple as that!

*Make sure that the marker/ink lines are dry before you place the Press 'n Seal on your quilt. You wouldn't want to risk an accidental ink smear on a new quilt top!

This is great!!! What a smart little secret you have been keeping. I have been toying with the idea of tissue paper but this is just too easy... THANK YOU!
