Lift or Glide?

What's Your Style

Now that is a very strange question isn’t it!

I have been asking a series of sewing and quilting questions. This is the fifth question in the series.

What is a lifter and what is a glider you might ask? Well, a lifter is someone that lifts their iron up from the fabric before moving onto another area. A glider continuously moves the iron across the fabric without lifting.

When pressing fabric or seams for a quilt it is better to lift rather than glide the iron. Gliding the iron can lead to distorted or stretched fabrics, seams and blocks. I am a lifter. 🙂

Time to register your habit. Are you are a glider or a lifter?

Thank you for your participation!
