After years of doing something you’re passionate about, a person is bound to pick up handy tricks along the way. Some tricks may be obvious, while others may be more intricate. Everyone has their own technique when it comes to quilting, but it really comes down to what works best for you. We decided it would be fun to ask our friends on Facebook for their own best quilting tricks. Maybe one of these will work for you!
“I do all my quilting by hand and recently learned how to use masking tape to keep lines straight. This makes it so easy to get exact lines. It is much faster than eyeballing or marking with water soluble pens.” – Jeanie
“My new quilting tip is to use a ‘blind hem stitch foot’ for piecing Quilt-As-You-Go blocks and for straight line quilting. My foot has a bar in the center, which is a perfect 1/4 inch to the edge of the foot.” – Sheila
“Piecing is more accurate when the fabric has been starched.” – Cindi
“I now buy fabric online!” – Deb
“I’ve finally learned how to sew the ends of my binding together!” – Mary
“Simply slow down when using the walking foot, it’s not meant to run. Also I’ve found it handy to iron all my fabric.” – Deborah
