Marking your Quilt Rows or Quilt Blocks
While working on the Quilts of Valor on Thursday, Colleen shared this fun tip with me. She puts numbers on her quilting pins and keeps these pins in a separate pincushion. She uses these pins to mark her quilt rows and blocks while she is piecing her quilt top.
This photo shows how she marked these two quilt blocks.
Smitty also shared a similar tip with me. She puts the number of pins to match the rows. Row one has one pin, row two has two pins, row three has three pins, etc.
