Tuesday Tips - Removing Paper and Pressing Curved Seams

About That Paper!
If having difficulty getting the paper off the back of the Quick Curve Ruler, follow these simple picture tips - it should come off fairly easy.



...peel slowly...

 

And, when pressing curved pieced blocks, it may be easier with a little extra padding under quilt block.  You can either purchase a separate iron pad to place under ironing board cover, use a couple pieces of batting or simply use a fluffy towel. The extra "squish" allows seams and bias to ease together easier and helps avoid ripples at the pressing stage.  Place the batting or towel under ironing board cover...



or right on top.

Great advice/hints, since most of us have gone to the less 'cushy' ironing boards for quilting. Not being in a super hurry helps when it comes to removing that paper but that's really hard when one is excited to have it!!!!!!! LOL!

yes, treadlemusic, peeling it off slowly helps as well! Thanks! :)
