Tuesday Tip - Sharpie Markers and Squaring Up Blocks



Once again, a sharpie marker is so very useful and quite satsfying! :)

We recommend keeping a sharpie marker handy to place important square up marks on your QCR, QCRMini and square up rulers.



Place a small dot on your rulers at the square up mark's indicated in each of our patterns. 


We are using the blocks from each ruler's free table runner patterns, as examples.





These Sharpie marks will help you find those square up points easier.  


These Sharpie marks come of easily with a little rubbing alcohol and a tissue. 



Happy Quilting! :)

I have been using glow line tape. You can still see thru it and then I don't mark up my rulers.

Glow line tape is a good idea as well.

The blue green marks were there for some other pattern blocks I had been squaring up.
