    Frog tape is the brand name of painter's tape. It's green. Any painter's tape will work. I use it for marking on the sewing machine too -- I lay a strip to guide my cloth along a specific width.

    So has anyone tried this? What's the verdict? Is it pretty accurate?

    I'm not making HST's right now for any project.

    This is how I make hst. I can knock out a hundred of them in no time. I've tried other methods and this is the best for me.

    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    Thanks for posting this. I saw that same idea before but keep forgetting it. Maybe now that I've "seen" it I'll remember
