When I tried using them, I discovered they work - hooray. But, I also discovered their benefits in 2 other ways that I wasn't expecting. First, they make scootching the fabric together that last little bit of a thread, a piece of cake. I can line the matched triangles better than I ever have.
Second, at the ironing board, it is quick and efficient at opening the triangle piece for ironing. Wow. that alone is the best part. I use 4 pieces on thumb and index finger on both hands.
I am cut and ready to plow through clue 2
I have enough

I thought about joining in this mystery quilt, but made a couple red four squares and quit. I have too many project on board right now, but have printed off the directions and think I will get started later this coming year on it. Your half square triangles are really nice.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the tip! I have issues with arthritis in my hands and these will be a great help. I just ordered some.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing this great tip with Oh Scrap!ReplyDelete
You are just cruising away with those HSTs! What a fabulous idea with the finger cots. I think I had something similar to that once for pulling my hand quilting needle through fabric, but they were marketed directly to quilters and probably the price was inflated. I will check Amazon next time!ReplyDelete
What a great tip! (Sorry wasn't trying to be punny). You've got some lovely blues in those HSTs.ReplyDelete
