    New (to me) idea

    Quick No Mark Stitch & Flip Tip
    http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quil...rk-stitch-flip
    This will work for Half Square Triangles, Quarter Square Triangles, Corner Triangles & Flying Geese!

    Shucks, looks like you will need to copy & paste.

    I'm going to try this. I hate marking those diagonal lines. Thanks for sharing!
    If I'm too busy to quilt, something else has to go.

    I probably would "wiggle" and sew the cardboard! Or it would slip and mess up.....drawing lines with pencil is easier for me....

    I use the angler sometimes, works for me. I also have a permanent line drawn on my sewing machine straight down from the needle center position.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Use a strip cut from sandpaper and it will grip your fabric - no slipping.

    I use a piece of painter tape and just follow.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.
