I would love to say that this is my sole idea, but I picked it up somewhere, I have no idea where I saw it. Anyway, you use upholstery vinyl that I bought in the Home Dec department at JoAnns. And you need a dry erase marker. Try to find one with a thinner tip.
The best part of making a miniature quilt is you only need a small piece to cover the whole quilt top.
Then you can draw on different ideas for quilting. Even sad looking feathers.
And you can wipe away the designs that just don't work.
This is an easy way to figure out what might work, and what won't.
Still figuring it all out.
