Quilting tools

New Tool

I’m always on the lookout for a new tool or gadget that makes quilting more accurate, easier and a bit more fun.  At the recent Scrap Therapy class at Calico Gals Quilt Shop,  Joan Ford, demonstrated Cutting Edge (the repositionable vinyl strip).  It simply is a strip of static cling vinyl that adheres to the quilt ruler.  It’s so simple to use:

  • place the vinyl strips on the underside of the ruler

    adhere vinyl strips to ruler

    adhere vinyl strips to ruler

  • align the cutting edge of the ruler next to the straightened edge of fabric

    Slide vinyl stripped ruler to straightened edge of fabric

    Slide vinyl stripped ruler to straightened edge of fabric

  • slide ruler toward fabric and the cutting edge of the ruler will stop at the edge of the fabric in the right position for cutting.

It’s also a serves as a reminder of the measurement you are cutting.  Great idea.  We are often multi-tasking as we quilt and it is easy to cut the wrong measurement.  What a disaster! (I hate to admit how many times I’ve done that!)


There is always time to quilt!
