OK, I’m not a quilter, I don’t have that kind of patience but I’d heard that some quilters used Inktense pencils on their quilts so I had to have a go at it! I also really wanted to try it because for Christmas I gave one of my best friends a small tin of inktense pencils and she is a talented quilter and seamstress so I wanted to make sure it worked well before I told her about using them on fabric. Well, I really like the results on my craft-fair tool apron. What do you think?
