    Re the colour discussion ... ours in Canada is green, and comes in assorted widths.

    I do use it with no problems ... just be careful when peeling it off the fabric as you can pull off a lot of threads pretty fast. Not good!! So, slow and steady is best.

    One problem that I've had ..... when pulling off a length, it often tears off in midstream. I thought it was a bad roll, but no, the new one is just the same problem. Any suggestions?

    I've used painters tape for years, never had a problem with residue.

    Blue painters tape doesn't leave a residue but I have found that masking tape does. I would caution if you use masking tape to test it first; I've had masking tape that was very sticky due to the conditions it had been subjected to (i.e. hot garage, car, or just simply being "old").

    I keep the blue painter's tape in my sewing room and use it as others have said. I wouldn't be without it. It was left on one of my quilt projects for several months....I had no problems removing it and there was no residue. The cheaper masking tapes aren't as sticky but I wouldn't use them unless it was just for a short time. My husband has what I think is called drafter's masking tape that I've used that in a pinch...not sticky at all...probably expensive.
