Yes, it’s a good design just not the right place to use it.
Along with the jelly-rolI I also have the end of a bolt of fabric that I love. It is Shadow Play by Maywood and is just the best quality, I had bought 6 bolts of this but didn't use all... Continue reading

I am doing a lot of walking at the moment. I had very high blood pressure after contacting a virus in hospital. It took a while for them to realise it was a virus and not hypertension. I am still... Continue reading
