My favorite dirty quilting secret ... Fri, Oct 23, 2009 ~ Is literally these dirty, holey, smelly garden gloves I found in the garage. The kind with the rubber grip & that are way too big for me so they’re easy to slip on and off. They make a world of difference when I’m quilting, especially when stippling. They’re perfect….except for the dirty rubber smell. What’s your favorite quilting gadget?
