Today is day 4 of the 31 day blog writing challenge hosted by Cheryl at www.muppin.com.
I have a lot of favorite tools. I would have to say though that my favorite would be my rulers and my rotary cutters and mats.
I can remember when I first started quilting, templates were made from cardboard, traced and cut with scissors.
Can you imagine cutting a quilt with lots of pieces with scissors? That takes a very long time.
I have 3 cutting mats. One is 18 x 24".I would really love a bigger one, but this one world for now. Then I have 2 small ones. 1 is 12x18 and folds. It is great for traveling and then one is 8 x 11. This one goes in my backpack so that if I am working on some hand piecing at work and I need to cut something I can. I picked it up at a going out of business sale for $1.00.
I have a variety of rulers. When I travel with them, they are wrapped in fabric. I have had a few break before I realized to wrap them this way. I keep a couple of small basic ones at work.
I will be back tomorrow with a really fun cookie recipe and will share the Christmas quilt I am working on. This will be part of the virtual cookie exchange blog hop. Hope to see you then.
