After suffering from sore shoulders while quilting a twin size baby quilt I finally followed the suggestion of a number of our members and went out to buy myself a set of rubber door stops. I put them under the back of the machine and to my surprise it really helps to tilt the machine. Why was I so reluctant to try this? Stubborn I guess. Many of you I am sure have quilting tools you use that aren't from the quilt store at all. We want to know what you have found and how you use it. I promise it won't take me as long to try a new "gadget" next time. Oh, and Wayne ("The Big Kahuna" cameraman) found out that a rotary cutter works great for cutting his gels. I guess it works both ways with great tools.
