Q(uilters') Tips

1. A thin sliver of soap is useful for marking temporary lines on dark fabrics. It shows up well and can usually just be brushed or rubbed off. Always test on a scrap of fabric first.

2. Use masking tape as a guide when doing straight line stitching. It saves lots of time marking.

3. Sew with navy thread on black fabric and black thread on navy fabrics. It will be easier to see if you have to take out a line of stitching.
