One of the more painful aspects of being a beginning hand-quilter is pricking your under-finger. Another problem is achieving even, small stitches. Now, let Aunt Becky help you. Hold the finger protector between your thumb and index finger underneath your quilt, and gently push up with the Finger Saver. After some practice, you will find the gentle rhythm you develop helps create smaller, more even stitches - and it prevents you from pricking your finger.
