I'm glad that is over.

A bit of shopping

I did an on-line course concerning "Quilting with your walking-foot" with Jacquiie Gering a few years ago and as I can no longer access it I decided to buy the book.

(It is on special at Booktopia.)

It has got me thinking about 'angles' and how we measure them.  You can buy a quilting ruler and use this but I wanted to understand the math, which turns out to be a bit more complicated.

  It is far more accurate if you use metric rather than imperial measurements.  (I should have guessed that!) and I made a chart for myself as well.

I think I will just use the ruler, all the thinking is done for me!

But, I can highly recommend this book.

It can be interesting to understand the background to these things, but also - never despise a really useful piece of equipment!
