More Q(uilter's) Tips

4. When purchasing fabrics from different sources, write in the selvedge edge the name of the source from which you purchased it, in case you need to get more of the same.
5. Before washing fabrics, cut a small piece off each corner. This will prevent ravelling and tell you later if the fabric has been washed or not.
6. To determine the grain of squares after they have been cut, gently stretch the fabric square in each direction. There will be more stretch in the crosswise grain.
