I have a weakness for quilting gadgetry. When I go to quilt shows, I think a conversation bubble follows me around, visible only to the vendors, that says "Prime prospect for quilting gadgets. Reel her in with a demo."
Here are a few things I've bought over the years and not used (yet):
Feathered Star template set
Lil' Twister template
Leaves Galore set of curved rulers
Wheel of Mystery template set - bought two times!
Sets of foundation papers for miniature courthouse steps blocks
And as I located each of these items, I had similar thoughts. "Oh, I really want to use this soon." "I really need to give this a try." "What can I make with this?"
Anyway...I've settled on a design for my Paris Flea Market quilt. The center of the quilt will have some simple piecing, then there will be a wide border with a appliqued design of vine and leaves...and maybe some tiny hexagon flowers. Now that I think about it, this could the opportunity I need to put the Leaves Galore ruler to use!
