    I am going to a small quilt retreat in October and would like to take along some hints to share with the gals. I know this board is full of knowledge so would you give me your best hints you use for quilting. I know there was something a while back but I haven't been able to find all the hints that were to be listed in a group for us.

    Thanks for your help. Figured if I got started on this early enough I could organize them into subject matter and that might work better than just randomly throwing them out.

    It's okay to step outside the box, sometimes plan B turns out better.

    Have a fabulous trip!

    If you buy a new machine, don't be afraid to take it out of the box and use it.
    Don't be afraid to try something new. :-D

    I just saw a great tip on Fons and Porters show.
    When making a log cabin quilt buy a couple of dollar store silverware trays, one for light fabrics and one for dark.
    Put your cut strips into the trays, they will be all sorted and ready to use.
