I have found a lint roller comes in very handy when trying to get my quilts ready for presentation. Whether it’s to display locally, or to ship to an out of state show or publisher, I want my quilts to look good! (The picture below shows my String of Pearls quilt.)
I found this awesome jumbo lint roller at my local discount store and it works wonders for covering a lot of area. It’s basically large sheets of masking tape perforated together and rolled around a tube. Such a clever idea!
First, I lint roll about half of the quilt top. I can catch enough lint and stray threads that I only get halfway through before I have to rip off a piece of tape. Then I can do the other half.
Same thing for the back – I roll it half at a time. Voila! A pretty quilt that is (mostly) free of thread and lint. 🙂
