Trying Out a New Ruler

Day 1 is here for the Sullivan's Cutting Edge Ruler Blog Hop!  Every day there will be two Bloggers who will share about their experiences with the rulers, some fun stuff about themselves, a recipe for you, and of course some free give aways!

Heather came over and spent a day in my sewing room, and wanted to try out these new rulers that she's been hearing so much about for herself.  This one is now hers :)

As a beginning quilter, her favorite feature of the ruler was the non-skid frosting, even more than the diamond incrusted edge that sharpens your rotary blades as you cut ~ although that may be because I provide her with the rotary blades :)  She did have to get used to the extra half inch on the edge of the ruler (this one is 6-1/2" x 12-1/2"), but once she adjusted to that, she really liked that better than her old 6" wide ruler.

These are the fabrics that Heather cut for her Quick Mystery Block of the Month Runner ~ she just couldn't resist jumping in!  I'll show you her progress on the Block One later in the week. 

Click on the above Button for more information and the free pattern for the Spring Water Designs  Quick Mystery BOM Runner, and sew along with us!

These rulers look fabulous, and what a bonus to sharpen your blade as you cut!

I love the idea of the ruler and extending the life of my rotary blades!!
