Default 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?

My favourite helper is my Machingers gloves. I wouldn't do freemotion quilting without them.

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!

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
