Random tip o' the day

When I edgestitch, sometimes the fabric at the corner gets sucked down into the feed dogs as I pivot around the corner. One solution is to poke a safety pin through the corner to use as a handle. I can hold onto the head of the safety pin and gently pull the fabric to encourage it to feed properly. Just my little low-tech tip of the day!
I'm including this extra shot of my newest favorite project... This shows the heart that I freehand quilted as well as the one of the circles that I quilted around the pigs.
