    Im not keen on the soap idea but I think making a label with a picture of you on is a great idea. Imsure future generations would love to see the love and care that goes into the quilts

    QUILTER’S TIP OF THE DAY: An alternative for hand basting a quilt is to machine baste with water soluble thread. Make sure to use the thread in both the top and the bobbin and sew straight basting lines across the quilt. When you’re done with the decorative quilting, the soluble thread can be removed by washing. Happy quilting!

    Sorry I haven't been around to post these.

    QUILTER’S TIP OF THE DAY: Using a plain bar of soap to store your pins and needles has multiple advantages. By inserting them into the bar it will coat the pins and needles with a thin film that will not only prevent rust but will also help to glide smoothly through multiple layers of fabric and batting. Happy quilting!

    I have never heard of such a thing!! I'll start posting the tips here.
    Hello Tonya!
    from where do you receive that at facebook?
    thanks, Virginia

    To make a reusable quilting stencil, trace your design onto tulle (netting) with a permanent marker. Place the tulle on top of the area to be quilted then retrace the design with your marking tool of choice.

    hi hill billy
    I also rug hook on occasion and have found that something smoother and easier than tulle for tracing is plumber's "paper". It is a very thin and transparent fiber - looks almost like interfacing. I purchased some from a hooking supply house some time ago and still have tons. I betcha it would be cheaper than tulle as well! Save that for wonderful crochet scrubbies.

    Use a pants hanger to hold your pattern book open to the current page and to keep it from getting lost under fabric.

    Thanks. I don't use all these. I just copy and post them! Crochet scrubbies are a bit of a hit, aren't they?

    Yes, they certainly are! quick and easy and last pretty well, too. I even impressed my dear old Mom with them. She thinks I'm brilliant, lol, but then that's in her job description, right?

    Yes, it should be!
    I am trying to get my daughter to make some for me. She crochets.
