My Favorite Quilting Tool


Do you have a favorite quilting tip or tool? I'm especially interested in tools that seemingly have nothing to do with quilting!

This neck pillow is my favorite thing when it comes to handwork. When I'm sitting in on the sofa or in a recliner, the pillow supports my neck and allows me to stitch in a more ergonomically correct position. Being an Industrial Engineer, I took a few classes on Ergonomics in college. Yes, it's important!

My pillow helps prevent neck and back strain. When hand sewing I have a tendency to tilt my head forward - but the pillow helps to support those muscles so they are no always flexed. It's a life (NECK!) saver! 

My pillow came from Bed Bath and Beyond. It's memory foam and the cover can zip off for washing - love that! It was around $20 and worth every penny!

I love to hand applique, hand quilt, hand stitch hexies - so much hand work! And I can't tell you how much my little pillow helps!

As far as hand quilting goes...did you notice the picture in yesterday's blog post? I'll tell you more about that soon...

  3. How does it keep you from tilting your head forward? Do you wear backwards?
