    Re: Garlic knot fun

    I've made several from this block, and they all look like interlocking chains... It's very cool the secondary design that shows up.

    Re: Template backing paper

    No dumb questions here! Yes, you should take the paper from the template. It does make seeing the lines through to the fabric easier...;) I really like the yellow-green templates vs the clear...

    Re: Craft table top...

    That's a great idea. It would work for bindings too! I use a piece of cardboard, but this looks like it might work better... Heaven knows I have enough Pringles cans in the house. We used to save...
