Making Bias Tape

I've had great fun today making bias tape with a little quilting gadget that really works.  I've got the Fusible Bias Tape Maker from Clover, it folds the tape and lines up the fusible tape and I just had to iron it as I pulled it out of the little maker thingy.  Very impressive.
I then set out the tape into the Celtic Lovers' Knot that will be in the central medallion of the quilt I am making for David and Jessica.  It will need a little checking before I iron and then stitch it down as some of my overs should be unders and vice versa.  I'm glad to have made a start on the wedding quilt and to know approximately where I'm going with it.
Today is a very chilly day, I have the fire burning and have been enjoying lots of lovely mugs of hot chocolate while I've been working, it's most definitely Autumn here in Lincolnshire.  Have a good weekend whatever you are doing :-)


  1. Well, it didn't take you much time to make the fusible bias tape, did it? The result is impressive, well done.

  2. What a clever little gadget! The Celtic hearts look lovely

  3. Hi Lis, I quite enjoy making bias tape, and it your design looks pretty impressive, looking forward to seeing where you go with it...:o)

  4. Making bias tape with a Clover tape maker is a breeze, and fun too. The Lovers' Knot design is wonderful. I have never made one with hearts in it, must try that one day.


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
