***Does your backing fabric "stick" or "grab" the sewing machine bed while you quilt? Starch your backing before layering it in your quilt sandwich. Starch helps the backing slide.
look in "Notions"
Take your Glad Press `N Seal freezer paper and secure over your copied
quilt pattern. Place on top of a quilt sandwich and with no thread in machine,
outline the design. Remove the paper copy and place the freezer paper
with the tiny holes over your quilt. I like to use a permanent marker to mark the edges of my block or border on the PNS to give me a guideline for placement.) Then take a pounce pad and rub it firmly over the quilting design. Look in "Notions" The chalk disappears quickly with a little heat or a damp cloth.
You can rub hard to transfer the design - the PNS prevents the chalk from seeping onto other areas of the fabric.
Use dental floss to sew buttons for a secure finish.
