    A great idea for marking a quilt without actually marking it! (LongArm)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8ZWHyNO6Sk

    This is a great idea which I plan on using real soon. I don't think it would work too well on a regular sewing machine since you scrunch up the quilt when quilting.

    In case you can't watch the video, she shows how to use painter's tape. You mark lines on it such as 1 inch or 2 inch intervals so you can easily space out your quilting.

    I just had to share this with my forum friends!

    Really nice. I can't wait for my new Bailey's Home Quilter to arrive so I can try this.
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

      I've been using painters tape for years.
      Great for white fabrics that you don't plan on washing before using, like curtains, and especial when you don't have 24-48 hours to wait to see if the disapearing marker will indeed disappear before you use it on your fabric.
