I have heard a lot about Quilter’s Moonshine lately. What is this, you ask? Well, it DOES include Vodka, but it’s NOT for drinking.
Quilter’s Moonshine is a DIY spray starch! I found a simple and easy recipe from this blog post. I will be the first to tell you that spray starch DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE when quilting. Your fabric becomes stiffer, which makes cutting more accurate, and therefore your corners meet up.
I spray my fabric with starch, then iron it, then cut it and sew. It’s not as helpful to spray and iron after cutting your fabric.
I loved the idea of making my own spray starch. I know exactly what’s in it, it’s a great price, and I love adding a few drops of my favorite essential oils. (My favorite is orange with peppermint.) If you want to print this off, you can keep it for yourself, give it as a gift at a quilting retreat, or simply give it to a good Quilty friend! I hope you enjoy making your own Quilter’s Moonshine! If you do try it, let me know what you think of it!
