    Hmmm, I'm almost at the end of assembling blocks for Easy Street and thinking I might try putting a dot of glue on some of those pesky intersections when I put the rows together. I do have the Roxanne's with the super fine tip that is used for applique, so it'd be easy to give this a try.

    This is a great tip and especially for a newbie as myself. So, you'll chuckle at my literal mind - I saw Tp thinking
    T.P. and wondered how in the world toilet paper would work with quilting - maybe the extra strong Charmin??? ....
    well, duh! Like we don't all mispell from time to time - what's a missed I between friends. I still didn't get it until the posts and "good tip" was stated. :-) If we don't laugh at ourselves, it's a sad day - not a sad day and hopefully at least
    a partial smile for anyone reading this. AND - great TIP.

    I was having a hard time remembering all the wonderful tips I've gotten here so I keep a "top 10 tips list" taped to the cabinet behind my sewing machine. Then when I'm ready to work on my quilting, I glance thru the list. I also keep a "to do when sewing list". The 1st item - talk out loud as I go. This has saved me from doing something stupid so many times.

    I also think these tips are excellent. I rip out as I am a perfectionist when it comes to the seams so I will definitely try the basting technique as well as the glue method, also. Thank you both for submitting them. Piece and blessings, Vicki

    I was taught to do that in my first quilting class. They called it a "quilt tack". Now I do basically the same thing with no tacks and no pins. I use the elmers glue. If they are off a little I just pull apart and reglue. Much faster and gives the same control as the quilt tack.
