Tape To Remove Threads

I like to keep the threads clipped on the back of my applique as I work. Silk thread used on the top and Bottom Line thread by Superior Threads on the bottom are both very fine. I manage to get them clipped but have a time getting them picked off my block. The other day I came up with this idea and it seems to work for me.

I clip the threads then lightly press a piece of masking tape over where I clipped them and the threads stick to the tape. It is so much easier and contains all those thread tails that get scattered all over the sewing table and floor. I can use it over and over until it is covered with thread before I toss it in the trash.

Happy Quilting!
