May: Show & Tell

Lynn also told us about some interesting tools for free-motion quilting that she has started to use as recommended by Leah Day (at www.daystyledesigns.com and www.freeemotionquilting.blogspot.com).

Supreme Slider costs approx $30 and sits on the bed of your machine. The bottom surface is non-slip and adheres to your machine-bed. The upper surface allows your work to glide freely as you machine-quilt. It has a hole to allow the needle to stitch as normal.

These quilter's gloves are made from a light breathable cotton yet they have rubber tipped fingers to allow you to grip the fabric for free-motion stitching. Some of us have used other gloves, gardening gloves or even footballer's gloves which can be a cheaper alternative, but they are sometimes a bit uncomfortable to wear. Lynn recommends these 'Machingers'.
These and other tools can be found at www.daystyledesigns.com.
