Q(uilters') Tips

7. Use pin curl clips, or plastic coated paper clips to hold binding in place when sewing it onto the quilt.
8. Save small pieces of thin cotton batting. They are great for wiping off cutting boards, dusting around your machine, or picking up loose threads from any smooth surface.
9. Another use for masking tape. Wrapped around the hand, sticky side out, it can be used to pick up tiny threads from a seam that you have just ripped out. I keep a roll of painter's green masking tape among my sewing supplies.
