    After quilting, my next love is collecting tips and bits of information relating to quilting. Just any type of little tip that may help in the smallest way, sometimes turns out to be a "big" time saver, or makes the light come on for someone like me, very slow at times. I would love to have any of your tips you are willing to share.
    Thanks, Pam in WV

    Hi Pam Welcome from Iowa

    I like to use the little blue seam ripper( I get them at Walmart) because the tip is smaller than most and I do miniatures. Well they were always rolling off onto the floor or they were hard to hold so I taped one onto an emory board. Works great. I now have a larger handle with a small tip to get into those seams and rip them out! And it doesn't roll anymore! The handle that is on them(the blue part) is only 1 1/2" long. You are supposed to stick that part into the cap but I never liked how that felt in my hand. This works so much better for me and I used a hole punch and punched a hole in the end of the emory board to hang it with.

    Greetings from Sacramento CA.

    Do you already have a boat load of tips, or are you starting fresh?

    I like the fine/narrow bladed nail scissors - they really work better than the seam rippers for me.

    I am wondering do you use EQ to design your quilts? I have EQ and noticed a lot of your designs look like theirs.
    Just wondering.
