When you are piecing your blocks/quilt tops do you use Magic Sizing?
This is an interesting question as it seems split 50/50. Its kind of like do you pre-wash your fabric or not? For me personally I use Magic Sizing every time I piece. It is like a security blanket for me. Now keep in mind I use sizing not starch. Sizing is much lighter and does not leave flakes or residue and it makes the fabric stiffer for more accurate cutting and sewing. The fabric just seems a little more stable and I like that. It makes my blocks look oh so crisp and neat too. I used to use a lot of Best Press but that is just too expensive for me. Don't get me wrong I love Best Press but since I go through a can of sizing or more a week it is just not cost effective. I can also get Magic Sizing at the grocery store which is convenient too. Not all quilt shops carry Best Press and to have it shipped is expensive because of the weight. So if you want to make your piecing a little easier and you haven't used sizing give it a try, it just might help you!
Until the next post Happy Quilting!
