I'd like to say a heartfelt THANK YOU!!!!! to all of you who have casually mentioned that you like to starch your fabric until it's stiff. I've even seen some of you say that when you peel it off the ironing board it should stick straight out. I used to think that was overkill, but now I'm a believer!
I took a class over the weekend. I consider myself an advanced beginner (if that makes sense) and this is an ongoing drop-in-when-you-can BOM thing. Saturday's block is a star, and omg, the points have been driving me nuts. If only the fabric would stay still while I cut/sewed it!
And then I had a lightbulb moment. Actually, more of a stadium lights moment. I fished out another fat quarter, starched the dickens out of it, cut it, and ta da! My points are pointy!
I'm sold! Light starch on my blouses, heavy on quilt parts.
I learn so much from you guys!
