Thursday’s Tool – Scotch Removable Tape

A great tool that I use when quilting pantographs is Scotch Removable tape. Some quilters use a clear gridded mat over their pantograph. Because I use my table as a cutting table and also a place to lay out and cut borders, I would have to remove the mat every time. I traced a grid on my table with a Sharpie for placement. I lay out my pantographs and stick them down with Scotch Removable tape. The tape holds the paper securely in place and is easily removable when I’m finished. This tape has a blue label and is easily found at the office supply store and at most other stores such as the drugstore, discount stores, and department stores.

Here’s a photo showing how I use it. I am attaching a pantograph that I purchased and downloaded from The pantograph is Mimosa by Patricia Ritter.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
