I tend to do things in a certain way with my quilting but I’m usually open to learning (hence all the books). For years I always used steam to press but in the last 6-8 months I’ve been using a dry iron and am surprised how much better I like it.
During the piecing of the block I only press with the dry iron but once the block is finished, I give it a spritz of Mary Ellen’s Best Press and press.
Another tip I learned a couple years after I’d gotten my longarm was that I didn’t need to press my backs before loading them on the longarm. A little spritz of water after the back is loaded gets even the most stubborn wrinkles out.
So what tips for quilting do YOU have to share?
