Magical Magnets

 So I was working on this table runner-I need to get it in the mail. Anyways, I like spray basting my quilts outdoors. I have been taping them to the garage door and spraying them there. But the last quilt I did wouldn't stick very well. I don't know if it was bad tape, or too hot outdoors or what, but I had a heck of a time with it!
So, since I'm kind of a genius in my own mind, I thought why not try magnets?! I grabbed the strongest ones I had from the fridge door-they weren't very strong...but the idea has merit!
I shopped on Amazon for a little bit and found some that are supposed to be able to hold 25 pounds on the hook!
 And they are pretty strong little magnets-only about the size of a nickle, but they worked great on this little table runner.
 I just smoothed the backing on the garage door, and secured with magnets all around.
Then spray basted and had a pretty good result! I need to make another big quilt to give them a real tough teat, but I think they will work well-I may need to order more though, just to keep that backing nice and snug!

This is really creative work. I love the fact that I’ve never seen something beautiful like that before.
