Me and Rippit Jack have spent some quality time together tonight, which got me thinking about quilting tools and recommendations. My best advice for new quilters? Buy a quality seam ripper - one that works for you and that you like using. Chances are very good you'll be ripping some seams and it's a whole lot easier when you don't hate the one you're with.
For instance . . . I ripped out a row on tonight's block twice, trying to get the center points to match up, never noticing until I went to do the final pressing, that I'd sewn the entire block wrong.
Yeah, quality time with Jack, coming right up.
Much better the
