Washi Tape Quilting Tip

Hugs and Kisses Quilt Blocks

While working on my Hugs and Kisses blocks for a new quilt, I wanted to be sure what parts of the largest square would be visible in the finished block.

Washi Tape

Washi tape was a perfect solution.  It highlights the area that will make it into the quilt block, but will peel right off with no residue when I move on to the next project.  Such a simple thing, but it’s been so helpful!


WIP: Adding Blue


I made some quilt progress this weekend with lots and lots of half square triangles.  I bought a special template to help speed up the making of all those half square triangles, a skinny little tool called the “Quilter’s Magic Wand”.

Tracing from corner to corner will give you lines to follow for perfect quarter inch seams.  There’s a little line etched into the template to help you match the corners.  Here’s a close up so you can see it better.

I bought mine from Donellefritz on Etsy.

Kim's Quilt Progress Blue

This quilt will be for my best friend who is engaged, and I’m hoping it will make her think of the blending of two hearts, two families and two lives.  I think she’ll understand.
