In order to create the melons featuring in my beautiful Norfolk Quilt, I designed a template duo set, featuring a melon (leaf) shape and a square-it-up nestling template, both i-spy style.
I have developed full instructions on my starch and heat resistant template method for making perfectly shaped, consistent melons. This method, used in conjunction with both of the perspex templates (the melon shape perspex cutting template, and the square-it-up nestling perspex template), allows you to create these melons in a jiffy, with beautiful curves, and perfect seam allocation for hastle-free seaming at your machine.
Wanna try it??…. I have popped the essentials into a little kit to get you started.
