This reader-submitted tip was originally featured in Quick Stuff to Quilt (Fall 2014).
Blue painter’s tape is particularly helpful because it adheres well, but leaves no residue. I use it when I want to write a note, for example, to indicate my fabric’s right or wrong side, or as a reminder about something I want to do to the piece. I also tape a strip to my sewing machine to indicate the needle size I’m using, so I’m always sure of which needle is in my machine, or to indicate the seam allowance I’m using.
