I’ve had a 12.5 inch square ruler for nearly 4 years no and have only just worked out how the markings work. This discovery was made after trimming bee blocks this afternoon, hence my current foul mood.I love to use steam when I iron! The more steam and heat the better. I mean I want enough steam in my face that it brings my blackheads to the surface.
Some that came up over and over again (off the top of my head):
A lot of you guys also iron instead of pressing.
Squaring up a quilt – say what??? We don’t bother with that biz…
A lot of dislike for Cotton + Steel. I found this one interesting. I’m glad you guys had the guts to say it!!
Using the word “sew” instead of “so” – ugh, this drives me up a wall as well, people!
And some that I had plain never heard/thought of:
I have been known to take my sister’s quilt top apart and fix a seam or two. She knows it, and I don’t do it too often, but sometimes it is too wonky even for me. (This cracked me up – but I would flip if someone did that to my quilt!)
I really enjoy trimming HSTs. Over, and over, and over again. (Everybody seemed ready to send Molli all of their HSTs!)
It annoys me when patterns don’t give seam pressing suggestions. Comment from JoyceLM (huh. I had never realized they were important to anyone!)
I should probably change my rotary cutter blade more often. I have actually taken the old blade out and put a dab of oil on the blade and put it back on. I got this tip from another quilter and it works surprisingly well. Comment from Lea (Ummm, as a stingy quilter myself, this sounds aMAZing!)
