Alison, this week’s lucky winner, will receive a Sewline glue pen. I use this glue pen (and/or the Quilter’s Select glue pen) to baste the seam allowances to the paper in English paper piecing. Use a light hand with the glue; it doesn’t take much.
Run the glue along the edge of the paper, not the fabric. Fold the fabric over the edge of the paper and onto the glued area. The glue comes in blue, pink, or yellow but it dries clear. Once dry, it holds the fabric securely but it also releases with little effort. Click here for a how-to video.
Tip: Don’t press until you’ve removed the EPP papers. Pressing can make the fabric harder to peel free.
I’ll be back next Wednesday with another Giveaway. Happy stitching!
