7/26/11 Tip of the Day

You know that sliver of bar soap that's always left at the end? You can use the edge of it to mark your quilts for quilting.

What do you generally use to mark your quilts?

I never heard of using soap for marking quilts before. Does this work with any type of soap? Scented? Colored? Creamy?

Just wondering ... :) Pat

I'm not sure Ms. Pat, I usually have Dove or Ivory soap. When in doubt, always experiement on a spare bit of fabric first! Let us know if you discover any soaps that don't work well.
