You just lay the paddle across your hand with fingers wrapped around it. Position needle in fabric, then place thimble on top of needle. Now, quilt in usual manner. Your thumb is still used the same way on the top of the quilt and your other hand (the same way) below the quilt. Does that seem a little strange? Well, watch your hand when you are quilting with a thimble. What are your non-thimble fingers doing as you quilt? They are folded under in the same position they would be using the hand-held quilting thimble. Selling for around $15. So, if you are feeling adventurous, give one a try.
Last week, I made my first Dear Jane block. Click here to have a look. I started with the first block in the book, but will randomly select the blocks, as I go along.
Until next week.....happy quilting!
Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
