- I like to turn small cups that I find at garage sales into pincushions. I cut a large fabric circle, stitch a running stich around the edge and stuff it with fiberfill. Gather the edge and glue the bottom to the inside of the cup. They're quick and easy to make and they are so cute. Submitted by Karen F, Lenexa KS - Fons and Porter
- When traveling with smaller quilts, if you roll them on empty paper towel tubes (larger ones on large paper tubes) this prevents them from creasing and stretching.
- Swimming Pool Nooles are great to roll your quilts and projects on for class and storage.
- Tool Hanger: A shower curtain hook ( the metal ones) is great to hang templates and rulers.
Have a good tip? Please send it in and we'll be happy to share it with others. Or how about that new tool you discovered, we would love to hear from you.

An Amish Quilter's Suggestion for Washing Your Quilt the First Time :
- Fill washing machine with cold water.
- Add two cups of table salt and some mild detergent.
- Mix water to dissolve salt and detergent, then add quilt.
- The salt will lock in the colors.
- For subsequent washings, always use cold water and mild detergent.
