Tuesday Tips and Tricks

I have a two-fer for you! Carole at Quilting Adventures has a post today on an applique technique using 2 layers of freezer paper. She also talks about her mini iron and how hot it gets: it has burned a hole in her ironing board because of the iron's rest. I did not like the cheesy little rest that came with my iron so I started putting it in an empty coffee mug. I also use the selvage of some fabric to tie up the cord when I'm not using the iron. So there you have it, a Tuesday Tip.


  1. OOO, great idea on the mug! I am going to use that one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I really like the selvedge idea . . . I could put that to good use in several places!
