It's scary but true.
And I really couldn't have done it without my new
Fiskars Ruler/Cutter combo.
Yes, I found one at JoAnns Fabrics the other
day and it followed me home!
After a little playing with it, I find the 24" length is great.
I like it much better than the 12" one.
But, with extra length comes extra chances for movement.
Unless of course you have a big ole heavy purple cast to
anchor it down!
This is a life saver for quilters.
Cheap $1 roll of Dollar Store shelf liner.
This is one time where you definitely want the cheap stuff...
the good kind is too thick and props your rulers up to high.
Just a strip under your ruler keeps
everything in place.
I can't take credit for this idea.
It's one I picked up in a class with
Pat Speth (Nickel Quilts).
It's the best tip ever.
There is a bit of a re-training, when you move your
ruler. It doesn't slide, so you do have to
pick it up to move it.
"Sew" there you have it...
My mini for the "Mini Madness" Island Batik hop
