    Try water soluble thread to baste a quilt. Haven't tried it yet but it sounds like a great idea. I need to buy some of that thread :thumbup:

    It's always better to laugh at your mistakes than get stressed about them. This is supposed to be FUN

    I think mine would be to not rush in... have patience and plan well, taking your time means hopefully that you do not have to repeat the same steps over.

    I learned to use the 1/4in seam and mark my machine with masking tape so I get the same 1/4in seam everytime. Also to be patient if I'm getting aggravated to get up and walk away. Oh and that my seam ripper is my best friend.
