Vicki over at Field Trips in Fiber is having a Real Studio Tour. This week she asked us what non-quilty things we used in our studios. I have many, but my favorite I use on my Innova long arm. I usually 'float' my tops. That means the top is not attached to one of the rollers. It just hangs free and is rolled up as the quilt is quilted. I use a tool shop magnet, the type you attach to the wall to hold the quilt to the roller.
this is the magnetic tool bar
here you can see it on the bottom of the top. Once it is attached to the quilt top
with the roller underneath, you can tighten it up on the roller. No pins!
I purchased these at Harbor Freight for $5 on sale.
Look near the tool boxes and organization items.
