Would love some help.
I tried the quilting once before and it turned out awful, lines were crooked and just all around AWFUL so maybe I did it wrong.
Would love to make the diamond cut out pattern, thanks

try using a ruler to help you keep the lines straight or u could also use a diamond cutter to imprint on the fondant.

For the quilted look you can use a triangle ruler or a regular ruler in the slanted position. Or you can use a diamond cutter all around the cake.

Impression mats are the best.

Is there an impression mat for the diamond quilting pattern? People are always mentioning it. But I can never find it at the link they send us to. And can anyone explain why many of those mats are $69.00!?!

Go to Global Sugar Art dot com and type in impression mat in the search box. There are several different styles to choose from.
