Starching Fabric for Quilting
When ironing my clothes I never use starch, but with quilting I ALWAYS use it.
Yes, this may seem silly, but just try it once and you will be hooked.
Starching your fabric before cutting it can help stabilize the fabric and prevent it from stretching.
It can also help you achieve more accurate piecing.
Use a DRY hot iron (medium-high heat), no steam, preferably 1600 watt or more.

Best Press -

Mary Ellen's Best Press promises to make ironing easier, smells wonderful, and there is no flaking even on dark fabrics. It is non-clogging, acid-free, and leaves no residue, relaxes stubborn wrinkles while giving clothes a crisp, new finish. It makes clothes soil resistant, makes fabric look brand new and does not attract bugs.
