Great Tips

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

We never know where we will get the next great quilting tip will come  and

here are just a couple good ones I know of.

If you are having trouble finding the value of a fabric or how one will play next to the

other – take the fabrics to a copy machine and copy them – you will be able to see the

value in the black and white copy perhaps easier than in color – try it !

Second tip …did you know that there is a single stitch needle plate available for most

sewing machines that will stop that annoying action of your machine swallowing your

fabric while trying to sewing those half square triangles?  It’s great…but you do have

to remember to change the plate back before doing any zig zag or decorative stitching.

Happy stitching..
