It is now 12 days til Christmas…I hope this post finds you enjoying your preparations for the big days, ahead…. I love this time of year because it allows me to share what I have with others…I know I can and I do, share at other times of the year, but it just seems more on my mind on how to and when to share at this time of the year…last night was a no brainer…the 12/12/12 concert for victims of Sandy…if you called you supposedly could speak to a celeb…I wanted to talk to Whoopi, but no luck…it was cool to see all the “older” performers that I may not ever see in concert perform…We also went out to dinner last night and picked a family and anonymously purchased their dinner for them…I love doing this…this is my favorite thing to do…But lets get to another kind of sharing with you…Quilt Stuff…now this list I have compiled is in no particular order…so I am just starting with one of the most important things…
A ruler…If you do not cut accurately you cannot stitch accurately! With that said this is the most necessary ruler I have, beside the 8 1/2″x 24″ that we all should own. The 4″x 8″ Omnigrid ruler is by far the most accurate for sub-cutting. You all know I love to piece “little” and this ruler helps me cut accurately. See all those 1/8″ grids? Yes…you need them….see how fine they are? That helps not having a big thick line…what side of the line are you on? Am I in the middle? With this 4×8 ruler there is no guessing…therefore…it is more accurate for piecing. It also does not have the extra 1/2″ that sometimes confuses people. The Omnigrid rulers also come in 4×4 or 3×18, which I also have of course, but this is the best size for handling purposes also. I do not want to be swinging around an 18″ ruler when cutting 1 1/2″ pieces.
If you are interested in purchasing this ruler it is conveniently linked below to my site, however I have no problem with you supporting your local quilt shop and purchasing there. If you do not have a nice local shop and want to purchase from me…you will receive a 25% discount off it now til the end of the year. Please understand that your order may take a bit. We do not know how many we will sell? It might be 5 it may be 50, hopefully it won’t be 500, I don’t think my supplier would have that many!!!…lol, so we may have to order this for you. We appreciate your patience and we will ship your order as soon as we have them in our store, if we run out of what we have in stock. Stop back by tomorrow to see what you need to help you be a better Quilter!
