Wanted: Quilting Tips & Tricks

We recently shared some fun quilting tips on our social media that we found from other amazing quilters around the internet. But we started thinking that our very own followers probably have the best tips. So we’re on the hunt for Quilting Tips & Tricks to share on our feed. We’ll happily link back to your Instagram or Facebook or blog. Simply tag @quilterslodge and we will repost/share with our followers. Occasionally we’ll pick one of our favorite tips to share with our mailing list as well.
Not on social media, but have the best tip to share…no problem. Simply email us at thequilterslodge@gmail.com. If you have photos to show, great. If not, we’ll still find a way to pass along your tip if selected!!

Here are those great tips we recently shared….

Sew Awesome Quilting Tip!
We found this awesome tip from Instagram user Brenda Moore. She posted, “And this is why color catchers are a miraculous invention! They’re even bluer in person and the white on the quilt is snow white.” @eroomkb

 

 

Best tip ever that I’ve had for quilters? Label solids on the selvage with a sharpie so you don’t mix them up. @jaybirdquilts
