I learn something new with every guild meeting that I go to. At the last meeting, we talked about our favorite quilting tools and gadgets. One person brought in a stack of paper plates.
I wondered, “How are paper plates a quilting tool?”
She explained that she uses them to keep her blocks in order as she sews.
Since I’m working on a quilt that must be assembled in blocks, rather than rows, I thought I’d give the plates a try. I laid out my quilt and then chose 12 plates, one for each block. I numbered the plates 1 to 12 and then put the pieces for each block on its plate.
Here they all are stacked and waiting for me.
This is one tip that I didn’t know about when I wrote my top 7 list, but is definitely a keeper.
Have you tried using paper plates like this?
