Do you ever find yourself having to transport a partially pieced top, blocks, borders and other parts of a quilt in process? Perhaps you’re on your way to class, or attending a retreat.
Having to iron out wrinkles and creases from folded parts once you arrive can take up a lot of time. Fortunately, there’s an easy (and free!) solution.
A clever idea shared by Fons and Porter can eliminate most if not all of the creases. Simply wrap the parts around an empty cardboard like those used for bolts of fabric.
What if your quilt parts aren’t large enough to wrap? Insert them between larger pieces, or use a piece of muslin or such to form a base for wrapping up smaller pieces.
See how it works in the following video.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
