Reader's Hints, Tips and Techniques....

My best quilting tip would have to be not to mix different brands of rulers when cutting fabrics for your quilts. It may seem trivial, but doing this may affect how your pieces fit together. I always use my 1/4 inch sewing machine foot and I press as I go.....Annette

About Thread....

Specialty threads are wonderful to use when you want a different look and texture to your project. With all the beautiful colors, thread can really make your work stand out and be noticed. But as with most things, you have to play with them a bit to get used to them, and find out what works best to get the maximum success. Here are some things that might help you. Plan on adjusting your tension and needle positions. Most of the time this will have to be done, and don't be afraid to try different settings! The look and effect will vary and you might find a new one you like. When you do find one that pleases you, jot it down along the with settings. That way you can refer back when necessary. Take it slow, it's not a race and specialty threads are a bit more challenging to work with. Check your needle to make sure it's big enough to accommodate your thread and sharp. Specialty threads don't have to be a headache, if you remember to have a little patience and find the best settings for you.

One of our favorite sites for quilting ideas is CraftGossip! Check them out, they have all kinds of crafting sections.
