I have made my templates out of a plastic table mat and then discovered that I could not write on it with a pen, it would rub off so I hit upon this idea. Write it anyway with a felt tip pen and then cover what you wrote with sticky tape. Problem solved!
This is the Aussie Hero quilt I am working on at the moment. His favourite colours are red, blue and black and dragons. I will be appliqueing 2 dragons on the quilt, I have the image I want, Just have to go to Office works to get it resized. One dragon will be red and the other black, they will be positioned on the quilt tail to tail.
