One great creative idea almost always sparks another. That’s why we’re rounding up a stash of trusty tips from some of our favorite quilters — and we’re doing it every Tuesday in January!
Check out these 5 bright ideas to get you started…
From Cherie Killilea:
Tip No. 1
Use a silverware organizer to keep scissors and rotary blades handy.
From Sandra Betzina:
Tip No. 2
Carry your rotary cutter in an eyeglass case to prevent nicks in your blade.
From Laura Nash:
Tip No. 3
Use a sewing awl when working with unstable fabric or lots of layers. It holds everything together under your sewing foot!
From Lee Chappell Monroe:
Tip No. 4
When packing pressed blocks, saran wrap them to a square ruler. They’ll stay flat and ready to use right away!
From Ashley Smith:
Tip No. 5
Use cardboard cutouts to fold your fabric neatly and easily.
