Welcome to Tips and Tutorials Tuesday!
Did you know that your 6.5″ by 24.5″ ruler is a great tool for smoothing and pressing your fabric when basting quilt layers?
I’m a spray baste kind of girl. I love how quick and easy it is. I make a quilt sandwich and then peel back the top layer, spray the batting with adhesive, and gently press the ruler evenly on the fabric sandwich. Works like a charm.
This smooths it over, keeping the tension somewhat tight on the top layer to avoid wrinkles, but not so tight as to stretch the fabric.
PSA of the week: Do not rotary cut with your long hair down! As you can see I learned this the hard way.
Well, that’s all I have today. Be sure to check out other great tips, tricks and tutorials on the links below and visit again soon!
