Helpful Notions to Start your Week

Did you know.....
When cutting fabric for quilting, line the ruler measurement directly ON the fabric. Many of us place the ruler 'measurement line' just off the fabric which results in the loss of a thread or two. When piecing small complicated blocks such as The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt's 6-1/2" blocks, the loss of a thread or two when cutting each 'block piece' makes a world of difference in the end size =The finished block will be much smaller.


  1. Great tip! Are you all moved in at your new digs? I've been helping you move (in my mind).
