I'm thinking of learning some quilting effects on fondant, but in my reading, it keeps mentioning a "quilting tool" ... I'm not exactly sure what kind of tool it's supposed to be. Of course, I know I can use diamond impression mats, for example, but I want to make sure I'm not missing anything here. Thanks for any input!
this is technically called a quilting tool, it makes sticth lines. i use it over the impressions from the diamond mat to make a quilted look:
While Sugarshack is absolutely correct, I think different people actually have different tools in mind when referring to their quilting tools. I don't like the impressions mats for quilting, I use a different product for my "quilting". Here's a link to what I think of when I think of a quilting tool.
Technically speaking, if you were a "quilter", you'd be thinking of the item that sugarshack indicated. However, I never use that tool for quilting... I use it for making "stitching" effects on clothes, shoes, purses, etc. I hope that makes sense! Depending on the post that you're reading, people have different things in mind when using certain terms.
Thanks so much, guys! This is helpful!
