You might well ask Apliquick Rods ?
Well, they have been around for quite a while, but were oh! so expensive that I could not justify buying them.
They were however, on sale on the internet in January so that I thought I might treat myself.
So, after watching countless videos on the internet, I decided to have a go.
I tried a very simple block and Whoopee, I think I have got it... I tried straight edges as well as curves and Yep, I am well pleased.
So are they worth the cost, plus the glue stick and Appliqué papers, not sure, but definitely worth it if on Sale.. :0)
|First Block attempted with Rods, papers and glue stick.|
Also, I am a happy Bunny. Mr M and I are going to be Great Grand parents, our Granddaughter is going to have a baby this August.
So to start off, I have hopefully made a very useful pressie ( a Nappy bag). I love this fabric, it's called Guess how much I love you.
It has four large pockets on the outside, and plenty of room inside for the nappies.
Going to wait for the next scan before starting on a quilt. I have girly fabric as well as lovely fabric for a little boy..
Talking of Quilts, I have put the top together for the next Siblings Together Quilt and it is looking good.
Next job is to make a quilt sandwich and get it quilted and bound.
But I want to try another block with those Apliquick Rods, and as the wood burner is alight in my sewing room and it is very cosy I think the Appliqué block might win.
Keep safe and keep stitching ....................Doti...
