Welcome to the beginning of the Quilter’s Best Friend series. Here we will explore ways to simplify our quilting worlds. Using tools, tips, and tricks, we will take the guess work out of quilting processes and offer solutions to challenges. If you have ideas you would like to share or challenges you would like solved, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today we have some Sticky Advice:
Use sticky notes when cutting fabric.
First, write up your cutting measurements on individual sticky notes. You may wish to note the number of pieces you need cut for the size.
Next, stick the sticky note to your ruler just beyond the needed size to help your eye fall to the correct cutting line each time.
Last, use the sticky note to make the stack of pieces cut. This will keep things neat and orderly when it’s time to piece.
Do you have any additional ideas for using sticky notes while you are quilting? Please share them in the comments below!
