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
- align the cutting edge of the ruler next to the 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!
