I hope you’ve been enjoying the Notion Commotion Blog Hop so far. Today it’s my turn to share a new tool I found to make your quilting experience a little easier. It’s the Sew Red Glasses. These eyeglasses have red lenses that help you determine the color value of fabrics you plan to use in a quilt. It can be challenging choosing fabrics with enough contrasting value so that the finished quilt does not end up dull and uninteresting. The Sew Red Glasses are a great help in selecting fabrics with good contrasting value so that your finished quilt will pop.
There have been similar products on the market over the years, but the fact that the red lenses are made into eyeglasses is genius! It leaves your hands free to work with the fabrics as you make your final selections. AND, if you already wear glasses, this product is available as Clip-On Lenses. More genius!!
If you’d like to read more about the Sew Red Glasses, go to http://www.sewredglasses.com.
Leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing for a pair of Sew Red Glasses and two of my patterns: Two by Two and Luminous. You can see the patterns on my website, http://www.plumtreequilts.com. I’ll draw two winners on Friday, July 18th after the end of the blog hop. One winner will receive two patterns with the regular Sew Red Glasses and the second winner will receive two patterns and the Clip-On Lenses. So be sure to let me know if you want the regular glasses or the clip-ons in your comment.
The next blogger is Susan Emory of Swirly Girls Design on Tuesday, July 15. She will tell you about the Creative Grids Kite Plus Ruler.
