    Yes, I have a small rubber hammer in my sewing room, but I forgot all about it!

    What a wonderful accessory, can think of all kinds of things to do with that and they don't all involve cloth.

    There are days I would need a sledge hammer. But I can't lift it that high.!!! :mrgreen: :?:

    I really like this technique. Thanks for the information. I'm working on a small wall hanging with lots of bulky intersections. This will be a huge help.

    I have a dollar store hammer that I covered with felt. Works just fine for me.

    Isn't Susan a hoot! She spoke at our guild last year as well as doing a workshop. She is so much fun and a wonderful teacher too.

    Is it possible, that the white material was all one piece, and the rest just hand-appliqued on? Time consuming, but possible... Diana O.

    Susan Cleveland spoke at our guild meeting Monday night and had a quilt she had used this with to make. You really could not feel any seam!
    I saw her Sat and then took her class Tues. loved her. I have used a hammer, I think the wacker is better for fabric.

    You could probably get the same results with a rubber mallet, from the local Walmart or Menards for about $5.

    I have one. Those intersecting seams can really get in the way when you're trying to quilt.

    Why couldn't you just put a rubber tip on the head of any hammer you have. You know, like the ones on the legs of your ironing board to keep from scratching the floor?

    My Mother always used a tailor's press when tailoring clothing. A good whack or two would flatten any seam or bulk. So, I thought it would work for quilting too. I tried it, it works! I use the edge of my scissor handle. I didn't buy a special tool.Susan(from Alaska)

    When using your hammer, place a heavy wooden cutting board on your table or counter. This saves your table from misses and prevents dints in your counter. It also keeps your hubby happy. He doesn't have to fix anything. bea
