Just What are These Thingies?



- Thread Garages
- Shims
- Mothers
- Piggies
Bunnies or Bunny Tails
- Leaders & Enders
- Anchors
- Herman
- Thread Buddies
- Spiders
- Leads




Some of you may have been doing this for a long time, but it was new to me~!  I tried this for a couple of weeks before I shared this idea with you....and I can honestly say...I will NEVER be without them again.

Marcie Baker of Alicia's Attic sent this idea in her newsletter.  She posted 22 different reasons why these are useful.

The newsletters #34, 35, 36, 37 containing this great information are archived here:
Alicia's Attic- Issue #34, 35, 36, 37

I hope you find this as helpful as I did.  Wow.  I swear, I learn so many things from other quilters online.  Marci also has great binding videos.  She can teach you how to bind any angle corner.  You can find this on her site.  If you ever get a chance to take a class from her, do it!  I am not affiliated with her in any way, but she is a great teacher and well worth the time and money.

I have been using these for a while. I use them to build other quilts. My guild makes preemie quilts for a local hospital, and using the leader and ender method, I can get two quilts built at once. It is a great system.
