All week we’ve been sharing about the Sullivan’s Cutting Edge Ruler, and hopping around to other fun blogs for cool tidbits and give aways…and today is our day here at Spring Water Designs! Thanks to Pat Sloan for hosting this hop and inviting us to participate :) First, we wanted to share our favorite Sullivan’s rulers:
Heather’s favorite feature of the Sullivan’s Ruler is the frosted non-skid back. Besides that, she likes the 6-1/2” x 12-1/2” size because she travels with her projects and it fits really well in a tote bag, and as you can see in the above picture mine stands up great in my rolling cart with my small mat.
My favorite feature of the Sullivan's ruler is of course the diamond incrusted cutting edge (which does seem to work at removing those annoying small burrs on the rotary blade that causes little individual threads to go un-cut periodically), thus extending the life of the blade. I have several of these rulers, but my favorite is the little 4-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangle that fits perfectly in my hand piecing travel clutch that I carry along everywhere. It's small enough for easy travel, but large enough to work with!
Look for the Sullivan's Cutting Edge rulers at your local quilt shop, Joann's, or you can find them in my Web Store. (Click Show All to see ones that we have in stock.)
So as part of the blog hop we were asked to share a favorite recipe, and late September in the Stewart house means Football Seaso...and Football season in our house means Taco Soup! Mmm...Taco Soup is one of my favorite things about football :) It's quick and easy ~ the perfect recipe for a quilter!

And just for fun, Pat asked us to answer a few random question:
Question 1. If I take a look inside your refrigerator what would I find?
...Oh my. Well you will always find three types of Pepsi (I have a son who like regular Pepsi, Hubby likes Diet Cherry, and I like Caffine Free), Gaterade (son, remember), and my new thing is Bread Starter that I got from a friend...Any you'll usually find some beer and leftover pizza.
And you'll always find chocolate in our butter compartment :)
Question 2. What is your favorite TV show of All Time and why?
Heather’s favorite show of forever is X-files because she loves anything creepy, and she watched this show from it’s inception back in 1993.
My favorite show is NCIS because I like crime dramas…and Michael Weatherly…enough said.
Question 3. If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Ok, this one made us laugh outloud! Heather picked Jewel Staite (Kaylee from Firefly) just because she likes her. I came up with Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order SVU, because I think she's a cool chick, and hey...we're dreaming here right!
Ok, now that we've dispensed with the silliness, let's get down to the Nitty Gritty! Leave a comment here on this post (tell us what's in your fridge right now), for a chance to win a Sullivan's Cutting Edge Ruler of your choice ~ Yes you get to pick the size that you want! ...And if you've gotten through to the end of this ridiculously long blog post, you deserve that! We'll pick one random winner on Monday morning.

If you're new to our blog, you can scroll back to earlier posts this week for other tips and information on the Cutting Edge rulers, and don't forget our Quick Mystery BOM Runner. You can click Here for the post with information, and get the Free pattern download ~ we just started with Block One this month, so it's not too late to jump in. But hurry, Block Two comes out on October 7th, and it only goes for three months, so you'll have a finished table runner in time for the holidays!
And don't forget to upload your Block One blocks to our Flickr Group, or email them to me ~ we want to see the different colors everyone uses!
Enjoy the day! ~ Dawn
