A new gadget

We quilters love gadgets. We’re always seeing something new and just have to have it! So, at this years lock in, one of the ladies showed me a new thing that she had made and I thought it was really cool so I had to make one. Here’s what I needed to make it. 

First I needed a piece of wood. 

 Then I needed a piece of sandpaper that would fit onto the wood. 

 I then painted around the outside of the board and glued the sandpaper onto it.
Now you might be wondering “why” I did this……well, it’s for when you have to mark those diagonal lines when making half square triangles.

You lay the fabric square on the sand paper and it doesn’t move while you mark it. How cool is that?

After you’ve marked the line on your fabric, you can rub the sand paper and the pencil line will be erased.


I don’t know where she heard about this from, but I think it’s really cool. I’m glad I finally got around to making me one of these! Now I need to make a quilt that requires marking half square triangles!! 😀
