Giveaway: You're My Favorite

YOU'RE MY FAVORITE
There is something about this time of year that fills my heart and reminds me of the wonderful people in my life. It is so fun to wrap up little surprises and send some cheer. I was writing down a list of all my favorite quilting tools and I kept thinking about you. You are my favorite! I am so grateful for this quilting community. Thank you for your incredible, ongoing support.


12345678

1. OLFA 28 - This rotary cutter is a specialist. It is the perfect size when working with templates, curves, or paper piecing.

2. OLFA 45 - I have tried so many different rotary cutters and I always come back to this one. I've had it for years and it fits perfectly in my hand. It's easy to squeeze the handle to uncover the blade which automatically goes back into a covered position when I set it back down. So easy.

3. ADD A QUARTER - A must have for paper piecing. I like the larger 12" size.

4. WONDER CLIPS - These little guys are so handy in the sewing room. I use them on binding, zippers and bulky projects. They are also good when you are sewing with leather or plastic because they don't leave a mark.

5. OMNIGRID RULER - Out of all the rulers I've tried, these are my favorite. The markings are easy to read and accurate. This size fits easily under my hand and is perfect for cutting out smaller pieces and squaring up blocks.

6. AURIFIL THREAD - Strong, smooth thread that makes my seams lie super flat. Yes, please!

7. PATCHWORK PINS - I've gone through so many types of pins, but these are perfect. Sharp and super thin. They glide in and out of the fabric with ease.

8. SEAM RIPPER - Sometimes simple is best. This fits comfortably in my hand and is sharp for tackling any necessary un-sewing. I replace mine every so often because the blade does get dull over time. I buy two because I tend to lose them in my sewing room and they aren't very expensive.

  5. Your favorites are my favorites. I also use finger cots on my index finger when handsewing or quilting. It helps grip the needle without so much hand strain.

  26. I use and love many of the tools you listed and would love to share some of them with my sister who wants to start quilting. Another tool I love is my wooden wallpaper seam roller. Works wonders for flattening seams. And I especially like it for pressing the pieces as I add them when paper piecing. Anything you would finger press, this works so much better.

  69. I always love seeing favorite products of quilters whose work I admire. So many of these are on my worktable as well, although my preference is the 60 mm rather than the 45 mm, and for some reason the ergonomic handle is harder for me to work with. Isn't that weird? You know I have followed you for a long time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. My favourite quilting tool is also my 45mm circular cutter, but in my case it's my Clover one that I pick each time.

    ReplyDelete
