Quilt Pin Basting Tip
Went to school today to pin baste my Lollypop Trees quilt. One thing that kept me teaching as long as I did was the great sewing lab and the big tables where we could easily pin baste our quilts. The new teacher is a very nice person to allow me to come and use the tables. The tip I want to give you today, I just dreamed up this very morning! Lots of people probably know about this, beacause it is such a simple fix! I always end up with sore fingers from the pinning. I tried that pin basting notion years ago, but it just didn't seem be a natural fit for me. Today, I sucessfully solved the sore finger problem with two flexible fabric bandages. I just wrapped my index and middle fingers firmly with the bandages. It was just enough extra padding and protection to make a painful chore a whole lot more bearable. Try it if you have a similar problem.
