    flippy-floppy fabric drives me crazy(er). :lol:

    canned spray starch is much nicer and smells better. however, because i use so much, i switched to the "mix-yer-own" to save tons of money. i use half liquid starch, half water. no buildup in the bobbin case or on the needle.

    it's true that it will get flakey if i spray on too much at one time, but that doesn't bother me. the flakes come off on their own as i work with the fabric. even if they didn't it wouldn't matter because everything i make goes into the wash as soon as it's done.

    starched fabric is easier to cut. i had all but given up on strip piecing until i started starching my fabrics. i also find that my triangles - any kind - go together much more accurately when i use heavily starched fabrics.
