    What's your favorite "modern" quillting helper?

    I just spray basted 3 table runners with 505 spray in about 10 minutes. No more pinning or sew basting. I must say this is one of my favorite time savers. What's yours?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    My favourite helper is my Machingers gloves. I wouldn't do freemotion quilting without them.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"

    I love the clever clips for binding. No more stabbing!

    I sandwiched 5 quilts this afternoon with 505 spray basting 3 queen size , one twin and a toddler sized baby quilt. Thank goodness for spray basting, the ping pong table and heqavy duty spring clips!

    I baste with Elmer's School Glue and may never go back to needle and thread!

    An telescoping magnet for picking up the pins, scissors, seam rippers, bobbins, awl, presser feet, keys, and heavens knows what else I constantly drop!! From Amazon.

    Rotary cutters have to be the best, I can't imagine cutting everything out by hand and sewing by hand so I have to say the sewing machine is also a favorite of mine
