Am fairly new to quilting; making 1/2" log cabins sashing; had awful time making them come out even and keeping fairly straight stitch. I use wax paper occasionally to clean iron, well I had a couple well used pieces laying by the ironing board and the lightbulb went off..........you know how if you try to starch a tiny piece sometimes it will stick to the iron and you have to wait for starch to soak in...........I put my little pieces on top of one used piece wax paper; spray starched them; covered with other used piece of wax paper and pressed; worked so slick; you can even flip the whole thing over and press other side insuring that it is completely dry; then just peel the two pieces apart and you have crisp little pieces, no mess all over the iron board cover etc. This worked great for me being I failed to starch heavily after pre-wash, I had just used sizing and it didn't stiffen those stubborn little guys enough. Just thought I would share.
Have a peaceful Sunday. Antylu
