Transferring designs with Press ‘n Seal

Quilting by hand is probably what I enjoy the most of the whole quilting experience. It is the moment to center myself and quiet my soul. I find it incredibly relaxing, and it is a form of prayer for me. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t get much done if I hand quilted all my projects, so lately I have been trying to improve my machine quilting skills. Small projects like the placemats made a couple of days ago are a good place to practice!

Perhaps you have heard of other quilters using Glad Press ‘n Seal (PnS) for transferring quilting designs. Some people love it, and others hate it. I’m in the group of those who love it. So much so that even though it is not available in my country, it is one of those products I have people bring down for me when visiting.

This week I’ve been working on two quilting projects, one by machine and one by hand. For both I used PnS to transfer my quilting designs. And so I thought I would share a tutorial on how I use PnS to transfer quilting designs in two different ways. For the full tutorial, please click here.

    Angie this tutorial is so good! Would you mind if I put a link to it on my blog? With full credit to you of course. My quilt group has been talking about using press and seal, and yours are the best instructions I have seen.

    Leeann, you should certainly feel free to link! Am really glad you find this useful. It, too, took me a while to figure out how best to use this product, and now it’s way up there on my list, along with freezer paper!
