searched this topic for if anyone recommends it for a beginner at hand-quilting but really didn't find out a lot.
Does it really help to make stitches more even?
On the machine applique question: The pattern I'm doing now has "you" machine appliqueing each block before even assembling them together. Is this normal or is it usually done after the quilt is layered? If done before, do I then stitch right around the shapes after the quilt is layered? Aah, my bad, that IS what "they" did.
Thanks. So I'm just interested in the tiger tape for now!
Saw a good review on this stuff. They had a good idea - try marking lines on masking tape first and see if that works for you. Is most useful for the "stab" type stitch which is where I'm at now.
So, answered my own questions!!
