Just a Quarter
As I apply my binding, I put a piece of ¼” tape on the corner of the quilt top to help me know where to stop sewing. It’s easy to see and easy to remove!

Get Crazy with Scraps!
Whenever I have scraps built up in a pile from cutting, I make crazy quilt blocks. I keep anything I can sew with! Before long, I have enough to make a whole quilt!
Press, Do Not Iron
I was practicing using my machine to write, and made this to keep on the end of my ironing board to remind myself to press and not iron my patchwork!

What Size Was That?
I cut out a square of hook-and-loop tape, and stuck the “hook” side to the front of my machine. To the “loop” side, I attach a piece of paper noting what size of needle I am using at the moment. When I change needle sizes, I change the loop tape to the needle size I’m using.
