07 July Fav Things

♥ ♥ ♥ GET THE JULY PATTERN ♥ ♥ ♥

Long before I was a quilter, I made clothes, costumes, stuffed animals and all kinds of other things. One of my go-to tools is still a seam gauge. It’s such a simple little tool, but so darn useful!

07 basting tip

Helpful hint: When piecing long pieces, try basting a bit of the corner down inside the seam allowance to keep it in place. It avoids the bulk of a pin and can easily be removed later.

If you’ve played along with me before, then you know that I ADORE signature quilts and always invite event participants to share a signature block to be included in a special keepsake that I keep.

It’s lucky March and today I have two more of My Favorite Things to share with you: Scissors & a Rotary Cutter. No quilter’s supplies would be complete without these two beauties cutting tools.

Pattern document includes two – 6″ & 12″ fully color paper pieced patterns as well as sewing order for both blocks.

My scissors and rotary cutters.JPG

Here are (most!) of my favorite cutting tools. I have a few more goodies tucked away in my “to go” sewing kit, including my first ever rotary cutter, a Fiskar gifted to me by my quilter Mom.

I keep a 45mm Olfa for paper and one for fabric, moving my old blade from fabric to paper until it’s given all it’s got! The third cutter is used for specialty blades.

Time for a new #olfa blade! I retire down...old fabric blade becomes paper piecing blade. When that one is shot, it goes in an old powder compact. When it's time to toss, I tape the whole thing closed to (hopefully!) avoid damaging anyone.

Safety Tip: Store old rotary blades in a container. When it’s full, tape it up before disposing.
