Tips and Tutorials







Tips

I use a Post-it to help miter corners on binding. 


I use sandpaper when writing on fabric. 

Round tip scissors are my favorite for trimming threads.
I use a zig zag stitch to Frankenstein my batting together. 

I piece my quilt top in columns not rows when using my design wall. 

My favorite labels are 5 inch squares folded in half, then sewn in with the binding. 


I design my pieced backings by laying the fabric I have on top of my quilt top. 

I love my rotating mat when cutting out small pieces of fabric. 

I love my rotating mat when trimming blocks.

  2. round tips are a good idea for scissors - more than once when snipping a thread I caught the quilt instead and had to add a tiny applique to cover it! I need to look for some

  6. I long for a long arm but can't afford one. There is a Tierra at the shop I go to. I'm used to free motion on my regular. Machine. How is it compared to a long arm.
