I thought I'd try to show exactly how the Tiger Tape works. Mine is 1/4 inch wide and it's marked with lines to give the quilter 9 stitches per inch - a perfect amount for quilting with perle cotton.
And here it is in action. Can you see how I try to line up each stitch with the lines on the Tiger Tape? I have to admit that my stitches are SO much more even when using the tape. I'm getting better at keeping the ends of the tape stuck down while I'm using it. And I've not had any more issues with getting the sticky stuff on my needle - I must have been sewing too close to the tape edge the first day. So I will keep using it on this quilt, which is coming along nicely.
