Fun with Magic Mirrors, Thread Special plus What's New
Have you ever played with a Magic Mirror? Or used Fussy Cutting Viewers? We look at both of these tools in this newsletter. PLUS, we compare 28wt and 12wt Aurifil threads and their different uses. PLUS we have a super special price on some 50wt and 80wt Aurifil thread packs!
Use these folding mirrors to preview your quilt blocks before cutting or sewing. By reflecting a small portion of a block in a pair of mirrors, the multiple reflections create an illusion of an entire block.
Fussy cutting viewers allow you to easily define which section of fabric will fit into the shape you are cutting by blocking out the surrounding fabric.
Add a magic mirror and see what effect you can get when joining multiple shapes together. Simply open the mirror so it sits along two edges of your chosen shape. These images are all from the same piece of fabric.
We currently have the following sets of Fussy Cutting Viewers in stock
