I’ve been wanting to work on some Grandmother’s Flower Garden blocks for some time. I made a couple of these blocks a few years ago for a sampler quilt and wasn’t really happy with the method I used to make them (I made a mylar template and ironed my fabrics around it before hand-stitching). The pieces didn’t seem to hold their shape well, and I got many burns on my fingers while ironing! Later, I took a machine-pieced flower garden class and was pleased with the results…but for some reason I still wanted to make these blocks by hand.
I saw this on Carrie’s blog recently and then Carol of Brown Quilts mentioned it was available at Target. I picked some up and tried it on a ruler yesterday…it is amazing. I’ve tried other products on the back of my rulers and NOTHING works like this! Your ruler or template will not slide on the fabric with this tape on the back!
