save your shirt!

when i get to the bottom of a quilt, sometmes the pinned edge of the backing hits perfectly where i lean up against the machine (belly bar) it took ruining a tshirt or two before i had a lightbulb moment and figured out a very simple fix:

since i unpin the bottom of the quilt top from it's canvas to quilt the last pass anyway; i unroll the canvas enuf to cover the tpins of the i won't have little holes cross the belly of my shirt!


  1. The timing of this post is priceless! I was folding a shirt the other day out of the laundry and thought, "what a strange looking hole in my shirt and what a strange place for it" I know!!!!

  2. Great idea!!!!
