Fit to be Quarter 6.5 & Companion

I am so excited to be blogging at Moda…the Cutting Table!  They asked if I would talk about one of my rulers.  I said:  of course, I would LOVE to!  So, I decided to blog about my latest ruler, Fit to be Quarter 6.5 & Companion.  

This is one of my favorite rulers because not only does it square up quarter square triangles, it can be used to square up 1/2 square triangles, combination units and a variety of different flip corners.

So, here we go!  

Quarter Square Triangles:
I actually designed this ruler to trim quarter square triangles but as you will see, it does much more.  

First, line up the diagonal line from top right to bottom left.  Next, line up the other diagonal line that goes from top left to bottom right on the size that you are trimming the piece to.  In this sample, it would be 4″.  

 Trim:

Rotate the piece and line up the cut edge exactly on the 4″ line of the ruler. 

Trim:

Combination Units:
First, line up the diagonal line that goes from the top left to the bottom right on the size that you want to trim to.  For example, 4 1/2″.  Also, line up the box that the square fits in which is half the size that you are trimming to, in this case 2 1/4″  Trim. 

 Rotate, line up the piece on 4 1/2″ and trim. 

Flip Corners:
This is where the Companion ruler comes in.  You need both rulers to do flip corners.

First, cut the size of piece that you want for your main piece.  For example, 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.  You also need to cut a triangle cut from a square, diagonally once.  In this example 3 1/4″.  Don’t worry all measurements for all the pieces are included in the instructions.  
Using the Companion, line up the 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece on the ruler with the end hanging out, as shown.  Trim the excess piece.

 For the mirror image, do the other side as shown or put wrong sides together and trim two at once.

Sew the triangle cut from a square onto the piece.  Lay your ruler so that the 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ lines on the ruler are on your piece and the 2 1/2″ diagonal line is along the seam.  Trim.


 Do the same for the mirror image. 


You can also do flip corners on a square as follows:
Start with the size of square you need.  In this case 4 1/2″.  Using the Companion ruler, cut off the top two edges.

 
Sew on the triangles cut from the squares

 On the Fit to be Quarter 6.5 ruler, line up 4 1/2″ on your piece .  Trim the two sides.

 Rotate and trim the last side.

 You can leave it as is or you can repeat this to make a square in a square using flip corners.

 Four different flip corners units. 


The more I work with this ruler, the more uses I can find.  Hope you enjoyed learning about the Fit to be Quarter 6.5 & Companion!

Also, all my rulers come with instructions for piecing the various units, what sizes to cut your pieces and a free pattern.  

I will be giving away one of my set of my rulers to one lucky winner!

    I would have to say right now my favorite notion would be my Sew Easy Ruler Cutter. These “Fit to be” rulers are awesome! They sure would make it easier to make my squares for my quilts. Thanks so much for having this giveaway! 🙂

  2. tpott says:

    I don’t know if you’d consider my little black Featherweight a notion but, it’s my favorite thing in my sewing room. I love piecing with it, just looking at it makes me HAPPY and the sound it makes when sewing is heaven. I think it reminds me of my Granma’s old Singer shop machine that she sewed on. I spent many days at her feet, she sewed and I played with her BIG box of buttons (I still have some of the buttons). I think your ruler would make, making the Hunter Star block much easier. Thank you for the tutorial and giveaway. ;->

  3. My favorite notion is my seam ripper! With out it, quilting and sewing the Rapunzel halloween costume for my 4 year old niece would NOT be possible!

  4. susan says:

    My favorite ruler for squaring up is the 6 inch precision trimmer put out by Marsha McCloskey. I use it to square half square triangles and quarter square “hourglass units” as well as other instances. I have a sheet of vinyl on the back so it is nonslip. Love it! susan

  5. Melissa says:

    I love the seam ripper I bought recently that’s a little blade.

  6. As someone new to quilting, I am in love with the most basic of clear rulers and my rotary cutter…which has taken some time to master. But I love it!
    Thanks for all the tips and tutorials….

  7. Sue Bennett says:

    I have to say the seam ripper is my best friend. It is just an old clover one but I am lost without it. Would love to have these rulers.

    suebennett1975@gmail.com

  8. Julie says:

    My favorite notion right now is my basting glue stick.

  9. I love my 12.5 inch square ruler! It is sew versatile and sturdy! Love your rulers.

  10. I should probably say my seam ripper, I think I use it the most:) I not only use it to fix mistakes but it helps me lay the seams flat when I am sewing. I love my new self healing cutting mat too!

  11. EstateTailor says:

    My favorite notion, if one can call it a notion, is Pellon 830 Tracing Material. With today’s multi-size patterns (and my FBA adjustment) having a durable tracing material makes a custom fit fast and easy.

  12. My favorite notion is definitely my rotary cutter. I’m old enough to remember blocking out quilt shapes with cardboard templates and marking with pencil to cut out by hand.
    Love the square up ruler with two, wow 2, diagonal markings. Perfect.

  13. Missy Shay says:

    I think my favorite notions are probably my rulers, they make everything so much easier!
    missysaprons@gmail.com

  14. Marilyn says:

    It’s hard to pick just one favorite, but quilting changed dramatically when rotary cutters came along, so that is right up there at the top for me.

  15. Allison says:

    My favorite notion is probably my mother’s Gingher scissors. I’ve never had a pair that I could count on to do the job perfectly every time.

  16. Marsha says:

    Any ‘Fit to Be’ is my favorite! Love all those that I have!

  17. Cecilia says:

    It would have to be my new rotating cutting mat! Your rulers are just what I need for my current project. Thanks!

  18. Brenda says:

    My favorite notion right now is my rotary cutter and mat.

  19. Nancyz says:

    I love the Twisters and my Splash rotary cutter. Thanks for the giveaway.

  20. mtsuz says:

    I love my rotary cutter!

  21. I love my rotating tool holder that I keep at my side. It is sold in the kitchen area of most stores and it has 3 heights and dividers on each “level” that are just perfect for:
    row 1: mini scissors, seam rippers, stillettos, marking pens & pencils;
    row 2: scissors of all types, pliers (don’t ask…), 1/4″ & 1/8″ 6″ rulers for paper piecing, paintbrushes for cleaning machine, F&P 1/4″ on either side HST ruler;
    row 3 is actually the center: 1/4″ 12″ ruler, numerous straight edges, and yes… a magic wand!
    Oh and lots more Stuff…!

  22. Laura Fedewa says:

    I love my all of my quilting rulers, I can’t imagine trying to cut without them!!

    My rotary cutter is my favorite notion, and the seam ripper comes in as a good #2.

  24. My favorite notion is my June Tailor Shape Cut Plus ruler. It is such a time saver!

  26. Bonnie says:

    My rotary cutter, by far, is my favorite notion. I do not know how I would get by without it!

  27. I’m in love with my Clover Clips. They make binding my quilts sooooooo much easier!! My only rulers are two basic ones (6×24 and 5×5) as I am a very new quilter (3 quilts so far). This ruler could definitely expand my horizons!!

  28. Betty Baker says:

    Just one favorite? I have to try all the new rulers, and have such a collection of them. IThe porcupine quill that I use as a stiletto, but most of all my rotary cutter and SHARP NEW BLADES. Nothing better than a new blade.

  29. Rosa says:

    My rotatory cutter and the mat.Can´t cut without them.

  30. bluebear says:

    My seam ripper and I seem to have a love/hate relationship but can’t live without it so for now, that’s my favorite.

  31. My favorite notion is my seam ripper 🙂

  32. I have a magnetic necklace that I wear and hang all my metal notions to it!

  33. Jacklynn says:

    I’d like to be that person who was slicing pizza and said “I wonder if I could use this to cut fabric” and the rotary cutter was born. Genius! By far my favorite notion.

  34. Larissa says:

    Probably my rotary cutter 🙂

  35. Cathy says:

    My favorite notion is the rotary cutter. It revolutionized quilting for me. Rulers are great, love them (have the Fit to be Geese ruler) and they make things easier but I am a quilter today because of the rotary cutter.

  36. My favorite notion is my iron, if you call that a notion.

  37. Mary says:

    I think it would have to be the rotary cutter. how did we live without them? These rulers look very interesting and useable. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Mary

  38. DeborahGun says:

    Mine is my rotary cutter and mat.

  39. Linda says:

    My favorite seam ripper recently broke and I haven’t gotten out to look for a new one and can’t tell you how I miss it (I use it far more than I would like to admit). My absolute favorite notion has to be my rotary cutter though, couldn’t quilt without it. The “fit to be” rulers look real interesting. Thanks for a chance to win.

  40. Brenna says:

    Probably my seam ripper, like so many others!

  41. JoanG says:

    My favorite notion is my rotary cutter. How did we ever do without them? These rulers look awesome. I’d love to have them on my cutting table.

  42. Gloria says:

    Today my favourite notion is my needle threader as I am sewing down a binding.

    Yesterday it was my rotary cutter.

    Tomorrow?? I hope it isn’t my seam ripper…

  43. Kim M says:

    Definitely my rotary cutter! I can’t imagine cutting out all my pieces without it.

  44. Janet says:

    As an “old” quilter, I too have to say rotary cutter. Making a quilt is so much easier than it was 40 years ago. lol I’m a ruler addict too.

  45. loula says:

    I have a rotating cutting mat and I love it!

  46. Mary Ann says:

    I love the Frixon pens because the marks disappear with heat. I use them for everything from corner triangles to half-square triangles to quilting marks.

  47. My 12 1/5″ ruler is probably my favorite. So versatile and I seem to use it all the time.

  48. Mary says:

    I love my scissors. I have numerous pairs and also have a retractable holder that I use to keep small ones handy to clip threads when I am machine quilting,. The holders come in packages of six in the office supply department at Wal-Mart and I’m sure lots of other places.

  49. Donna~~ says:

    My rotary cutter. Couldn’t do much without it. Love your rulers–often find a way to use them to square something up!

  50. Lisa Marie says:

    I don’t know if you would call it a notion (maybe a tool) and it’s not intended for sewing, but I am using a wallpaper seam roller in my sewing room. It’s great for pressing while paper piecing and for getting seams to lie open when needed. No burned fingers from the iron!

  51. Susan Smith says:

    My favorite notion has to be my rotary cutter. Couldn’t live without it! Thanks for the chance to win!

  52. Sally says:

    I love my snips. I keep them on top of my sewing machine and I can clip threads quickly without hunting for the scissors.

  53. Jill says:

    I use my seam ripper more than anything else it seems!

  54. Monica says:

    My favorite notion is my rotary cutter. Because without it I’d still be cutting out shapes with scissors.

  55. Gunilla says:

    I love my small Clover rotary cutter, it is the best!!!

  56. sandy says:

    Grat tut on the rulers. My favorite notion is my handy dandy seam ripper.

  57. Ann in NC says:

    The rulers look terrific! Anything to help my accuracy… My favorite notion, white stickers! They are great to ID a pile of pieces, block units, or block layout.

  58. My favorite notion would be my mini scissors. I have them on a chain and it is so convenient. I don’t have to go searching for the scissors.

  59. my favorite is my seam roller. it’s great for small seams, like the ending one to close binding, and to keep little kids who like to ‘help’ feel busy.

  60. susanj says:

    pencil and eraser – they do most everything when
    the “right” tool is missing in action.

  61. Marie Chat says:

    If I was totally honest it has to be the rotary cutter as it has certainly surpassed my scissors friend. However it goes without saying the rotary cutter is only as good as its companion rulers! So rulers are right up there as a fave. And your Fit to be Quarter 6.5 & Companion looks like it would love to join my other rulers! Thanks for the demo and giveaway!

  62. Erin says:

    My favorite has to be my rotary cutter. That and my tiny scissors which live next to my sewing machine so I can easily clip pesky threads and corners.

  63. Pinspot says:

    Rotary Cutter and Seam Ripper. Undoubtedly. I wouldn’t even try quilting without those two notions.

  64. Beth says:

    Favorite notion? How can I only choose one…LOL! I guess my “oldest” favorite notion is the first rotary cutter I ever purchased….45 Dritz rotary cutter. I have several others now but my old one always feels the most natural in my hand. Thanks for a chance to win a set of your wonderful rulers. Beth in AL

  65. Susan says:

    My favorite notion is my 120″ measuring tape. A dear friend gave it to me before moves pulled us apart. I have a great tool and a reminder of fun times sewing together.

  66. ferne says:

    I have 2 pair of gingher scissors that I love! They cut like butter and I keep them under lock and key.

  67. JANET says:

    Mine is fabric. Without the love of fabric, there is no quilting or sewing. Or a sewing machine. Those are my favorites, with next being the rotary cutter, mat board, ruler, etc.

  68. SewCalGal says:

    I love having rulers to help trim. I’ve never noticed these before and they look like a must have for every quilter. Thanks for sharing insights. I definitely want to give these a try. And, your ruler tutorial will go into my list of favorites too!

  69. I love all quilting notions, and I love this new Fit to be Quarter 6.5 notion – so I hope I win the contest! But I do love my clear rulers and my rotary cutter – two of my favorites!!

  70. If we’re not counting our sewing machines as “notions” then I would have to say my stiletto is one of my favorite notions … helps me make accurate seams/blocks. My assortment of rulers is also very important (quite an investment, too) so winning this Fit to be Quarter 6.5 ruler would be fun!

  71. Abbigail says:

    I would probably love this ruler! I hate buying rulers that are only good for one or two things.

    I favorite quilting notion is little wooden thread and needle holder that someone gave me. It’s so handy when I’m hand sewing!
    hulseybg at gmail dot com

  72. Sewbig says:

    The notion I use the most is my rotary cutter, so I guess that is my favorite.

  73. true2beeme says:

    I have many favorite notions but one would be my Clover Patchwork Pins-Fine. Your rulers are awesome.

  74. Vickie says:

    My favorite notion is my turning tool. I’m not sure how I turned anything before I got it.

  75. My favorite notion…tough question! I have so many! I guess my rotary cutter because it makes life much easier. Love all of my rulers too!

  76. Ruth says:

    ALL of notions/rulers would have to be my favorite, but this one looks pretty darn cool!
    Would love to win a set and start working with them! This might make my Flying Geese quilt that much easier to make!

  77. Lisa says:

    My favorite notion is Clover Wonder Clips. I’m completely addicted to them!

  78. My favorite new notion is my Splash rotary cutter– so easy to change the blade!!

  79. LeAnne says:

    I love the Clover binding clips and needle threader. Makes sewing the binding on so much easier when I don’t have to fight to see the eye of the needle.

  80. Marsha says:

    Oh, sew many to choose from! One of my faves is a rotating cutting mat….sew easy to move it to get the best position for cutting. I love Open Gate rulers, too.

  81. Tammy says:

    My 6&1/2 by 24&1/2 ruler and my rotary cutter are my best friends.

  82. My favorite is my add a quarter ruler with mat and a sharp blade in the rotary cutter. I love to foundation paper piece.

  83. Donna Phelps says:

    My favorite quilting notion has to be a ruler.That is where it all begins. If you do not measure and cut correctly from the beginning, your quilt will never be right. I cannot live without my rulers and I especially love the ones which serve for other functions as well.

  84. Woolgather says:

    My favorite notion is rulers. You can never haver too many.

  85. Trudie says:

    It’s a toss up between my many scissors and my rotary cutter. I think I use them equally.

  86. Laurel says:

    I think that my favorite notion is now the ruler that you just demonstrated. I would love to have my own set!

  87. KMSC says:

    There are so many great notions in the quilting world, it’s difficult to choose a favorite. But the one I use most is my rotary cutter (plus mat and ruler). Your rulers are wonderful; I would love to win a set. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
    k.castanette@hotmail.com

  88. KatieQ says:

    I hate to admit it, but my most used notice is my seam ripper. I have a collection of them spread throughout my house so there is always one nearby when I am sewing.

  89. My favorite notion is my seam ripper. As I am new to quilting I use it all the time. This ruler looks amazing. Thank you for sharing.

  90. I use my seam ripper all the time too. Still not quite sure I like my rotary cutter. Give me precuts any day!

  91. My favorite notion has to my rotary cutter. Your rulers look awesome and you make it look so easy. Would love to try them. Thanks for the giveaway!

  92. Carrie P. says:

    pretty cool rulers.
    I really like a fabric glue pen lately. I have been working on hexagons and it is a great time saver.

  93. Virlinda Day says:

    I love my Omnigrid thread snips. I’m not sure you would consider this a notion but I couldn’t live without my large iron board surface that sits on top of my regular ironing board and my iron caddy that attached to the side of my ironing board. Just love it to press large pieces of fabric.

  94. Rosemary says:

    So many favorites! I do love the 1/4 seam ruler … long skinny little thing that has helped me make perfect little bitty triangles. I love all the rulers (and scissors and … )and I particularly love this one on the giveaway. Thanks so much for sharing.

  95. Barbe says:

    i love Steady Betty, i have an ironing board cover of it and it holds the fabric so nicely, i also use pieces of it on the backs of my rulers, great for when cutting pieced work.

  96. Margaret says:

    I have a pair of tiny Gingher scissors that I use to cut out intricate appliqué pieces and I also find them very helpful when I need to remove the backing from fusible appliqué paper.

  97. R W says:

    I really like my omnigrid ruler!

  98. Beth says:

    Right now my favorite notion is fabric stick glue. I have been making lots of little bags with zippers. That stick glue is wonderful to keep the zipper in place while I stitch.

  99. Monique – one of my favorite notions is the “Purple Thang”, that little tool that can be used as a pusher to keep seam allowances down and also to push out points. Of course I LOVE all of your rulers and really like this set, so much that can be done with it. Thanks for the tutorial!

  100. DawnM says:

    My favorite notion is my rotary cutter. What would quilting be without it? I hope I win the rulers.

  101. Right now my favorite notion is the 20 1/2″ square ruler. But I change my mind often so tomorrow it may be something else LOL. Love the tutorial. It is so easy to follow. Thank you. Wishing all who read this a great day.

  102. Rhonda Davis says:

    For quilting my favorite notion would have to be my rotary cutter & cutting mat. I also alter every pair of jeans my husband buys and my favorite notion there would be the jean-a-ma-jig! I would put your rulers to great use since I only have a couple of very simple ones. Thanks for the chance to win them!

  103. Tamie says:

    My rotary cutter is really important but it needs to be paired with a great ruler- and a lot of light. I don’t know that I have ONE favorite notion.

  104. My favorite notion would have to be my snippers. I now have probably 5-6 or more sets of them. I use them all the time, at the machine, doing hand quilting, at the serger, then I lose one and find another lol.

  105. BizyStitches says:

    this is exactly something that I would use. I have problems with flip and sew corners. My favorite notion would have to be the rotary cutter. Thanks for all the photos and information.

  106. no_idea says:

    My favourite notions are rulers. The math geek in me loves a good ruler! I love double checking and squaring my blocks. Accuracy is everything. Thank you for the chance. 🙂

  107. Chiska says:

    I’m not sure that I have a favorite–if they had a clapper or some other locating device for my seam ripper THAT would be my favorite. I can never find it when I need it!

  108. Mr favorite notion right now is an Elmer’s glue stick for basting hexagons. So fast and easy don’t know why I didn’t use it before.

  109. My favorite notion are Pin Moors…no more getting stuck with pins while sewing or quilting!!! Thanks for the sweet giveaway 🙂

  110. Booklogged says:

    I don’t own either of these two rulers but I can see that I need to add them to other handy-dandy tools. Squaring up a unit can be tricky and these look like they would make the job much easier.

    My favorite notion right now is the Angler 2 because I’ve been sewing lots of HST.

  111. GranChris says:

    One favorite notion, that is very hard but I would say my seam ripper or my Tailor’s Clapper. They are both very important to me.

  112. Sandy says:

    My electric seam ripper is my favorite notion. I would love to try your rulers. Thanks for the opportunity.

  113. I couldn’t survive without my blue marking pen 🙂

  114. Nita says:

    My favourite notions at this moment are my templates for hand quilting 🙂

  115. I love the Fit to Be Quartered Rulers and wish I had purchased them before buying some of the others that I have. They are great and I use them all the time. My favorite notion at the moment is Wonder Clips- I just keep finding more and more uses for them. I use them in my regular sewing as well as quilting and would never do a binding again without them!

  116. quilter says:

    My favorite notion would be my rotary cutter and mat. I can remember cutting templates and fabric by hand!

    Gloria
    gyates625@bellsouth.net

  117. I never met a ruler I didn’t like! My favorite notion du jour is my electric seam ripper — it looks like a small electric razor. And man, does it do the job.

  118. Kerry Young says:

    Fusible batting would have to be near the top of favourites

  119. Sandy D says:

    I have to say it would be the rotary cutter. There are so many time saving rulers I couldn’t pick a favorite one.

  120. I love my clover Chaco liner! But I could not live without rulers and rotary cutters.

  121. Mom C says:

    nice ruler, squaring up my pieces is probably my least favorite step in quilting. I have a bunch of “can’t do without anymore” tools but other my sewing machine, I love my rotary cutters. Thanks.

  122. Linda says:

    Hello,it would be my Gingher scissors!
    Thank you for a great tutorial+giveaway!

    msstitcher1948@yahoo.com

  123. Nancy Angelo says:

    I have had a weakness for notions for a good forty years. My little, really sharp and pointed blade, 4″ Gingher scissors are with me all the time. I have several pairs in different locations around the house.

  124. Debbie says:

    My rotary cutter is my favorite. Thanks

  125. Robbie says:

    I would have to say my favorite notion is my seam ripper. Sad to say, but I would be completely lost without it.

  126. I am in love with rulers and my rotary cutter.I have MS and they are a god sin for me because sometimes my hands hurt bad and don’t always work right

  127. I am amazed at all the tools that you designers come up with each year. I’d have to say that my favorite notion is my rotary cutter and the turntable mats that have become available recently. I don’t have to stand on my head to cut anymore. Thanks for offering the squaring tool.

  128. Fiesta says:

    My favorite notion is the circle cutter . Such a fast and easy way to cut and stitch a circle

  129. sandra says:

    My favourite notion is my rotary cutter and mat. Just imagine cutting everything with scissors!!

  130. Becky says:

    Mu favorite notion is my Clover white seam ripper. Enjoying your blog this month!

  131. Lisa says:

    I love my rulers but I don’t have these yet! They look fun! Thanks for the chance!

  132. This ruler would be my favorite notion. I can see doing lots of flying geese with it.

  133. Susie says:

    Wow-interesting post. I think the Fit to be Quarter & Companion are my new favorite notion.

  134. CathyK says:

    Gosh, I have so many notions that I love! One of my favorite notions is my 12 & 1/2 inch ruler! Your rulers look amazing!!! Wow! Thank you for the chance!

  135. Garnet says:

    I am a gadget junkie – love them all – current favorite is a rotating mat which is perfect for squaring up blocks.

    Thanks for the opportunity, hope I win these nifty looking rulers!

  136. It’s very hard to choose just one! I love my rotary cutter, of course, and couldn’t live without my rulers and cutting mat. My Clover Clips (for binding) are certainly high on the list. Okay, just one. . .my Little House pins. They are SO sharp. Love them . . .

  137. Deb says:

    I love my rotary cutter.

  138. bunzie says:

  139. Kristy says:

    My cutting mat that is on a turntable….love it. soardkgatfusedotnet

  140. jmniffer says:

    Today my favorite notion is my Frixon pens. I used them to mark the top of a table runner for quilting and started making diagonal lines on squares for the next project. Thanks for the chance at your awesome rulers.

  141. My rotary cutting and cutting mat!

  142. Karen Dobbs says:

    I love my Olfa quick-change 60MM rotary cutter and my Gingher thread snips. The snips live right by my sewing machine.

  143. kay says:

    Does an iron count as a notion? If not, then my rotary cutter is my favorite!

  144. paulette says:

    My Beam n’ Read light! Love it for hand work! Your rulers look VERY nifty! Would love to give them a try! Thanks for the chance!
    Paulette

    My stork scissors at many locations in the seeing room!

  176. Janice says:

  177. It’s a tie between my thread snips and rotary cutter. Your ruler is going on my ‘must have’ list. From what I learned on the tutorial I’m sure it will make my life much easier. Thanks for introducing me to it.

  191. Amy says:

    I am a tool junkie, and that’s what notions are – our tools! If I had to pick a favorite, it would be a sharp, comfortable, smooth cutting, pair of scissors. My Ginghers are my best friend.

  192. Laura B says:

    My favorite notion is my magnetic pin holder.

  193. Belva says:

    I just finished a quilt using the curve it up ruler and I must say, it was pretty impressive. I could really use a tool to help with triangle and square in a square blocks though.

  194. Jackie says:

    My favorite notion is my rotary cutter; closely followed by my seam ripper.

  195. Gwen says:

    The ruler looks great and makes for

    My favorite notion right now is my rotating cutting mat. I would love to win these rulers.

  201. My favorite notion is my disappearing marking pen. I use it to mark quilting lines, and also use it in garment construction.

  202. Emily C says:

    My favorite is my rotary cutter, it gets used the most.

  203. My rotary cutter. Especially the ones that are more “ergonomically correct”. Ole man arthritis is moving into the wrists and thumb and there is no way I would be cutting fabric like my Mom did with scissors!!! Thanks for such a generous giveaway.

  204. jayne says:

    No question – a sharp blade!!!!!!! A great new ruler with no “nicks”
    Truly using a new blade and new machine needle make all the difference:)
    Jayne

    My favorite notion is the rotary cutter. Can’t imagine cutting fabric without it.

  206. Patty says:

    I guess it would be my rotary cutter and mat, followed by my seam ripper. All three get alot of use!!

  207. kansaswx says:

    This might sound stupid but my favorite notion is the rotary cutter. I started quilting making Eleanor Burns log cabin quilts and you had to rip the strips. The rotary cutter just made quilting SO, SO much easier. Where would we be without it.

    I have two of your rulers and love them. Would LOVE to have them all.

  208. Miz Karen says:

    I love my rotary cutter and mats but also love my various ruler. Hard to pick just one favorite. Would like to add a new ruler. Thanks for the giveaway.

  210. I’d love to win these rulers! My favorite notion is my Clover awl…I hardly sew without it now. Thanks.

  211. Lee Ann L. says:

  212. My favorite notion seems to be my seam riper! I do alot of resewing! haha Thanks for the chance to win!

  213. Glynette says:

    I find my rotary cutter to be the most helpful, and the seam ripper is handy, but I hate to use it because that means I’ve made a boo-boo— grumble, grumble!!!!!

  214. Ramona says:

    I love my rotary cutter too but I also LOVE my 1/4″ foot. I keep hearing about these wonderful rulers and would love a chance to try them out. Thanks for showing us how they work.

  224. Redfinch says:

    I only have your “Fit to be Square” ruler that I bought to make a Square-in-a-Square quilt. I’d LOVE to be able to see what beautiful quilts your other rulers can make!

  227. Joanna says:

    My favorite notion is a pair of Wiss snips that I keep at the sewing machine to trim threads right at the fabric. QST’s are not my favorite to square up so I could use your ruler.

  228. EllenB says:

    Next to my rotary cutter would be my 6×12 ruler.

  229. Favorite notion = Gingher scissors

  233. Marie says:

    Wow, so much from a ruler! My favourite notion is my spool holder. It’s got a little pincushion on the end of it and I am constantly getting asked where I picked it up. Unfortunately, they don’t make them any more so I feel very lucky to have it.

  234. I use my add a quarter ruler a lot when paper piecing, but I think I need a set of your rulers, since piecing is not my strong suit. Thank you for showing us how to use them?

  243. GO STARS! says:

    My favorite notion is my Seam Fix seam ripper. I love that I can “erase” all of the snippets of thread.

  244. Ann in PA says:

    Great ruler demos! My favorite notion is my blunt tip seam ripper. It picks seams with ease but doesn’t have a sharp point that pokes holes in the fabric.

  245. Kathy says:

    My favorite notion is my little cutting mat that spins!

  246. Betty says:

    Your rulers would definitely help with accuracy. My favorite notion is my Olfa ergonomic rotary cutter.

  248. llavmc says:

    My favorite notion is my seam ripper. I can’t imagine what I would do without it.

  249. I’d have to say my favorite notion is my chair cushion too many hours sitting at my sewing machine ,lol. then the bins available today to sort and organize all those beautiful material.

    Rose

  250. Cathy Gibson says:

    It is hard to choose one notion that is my favorite. Probably should be my seam ripper(s)! one on my ironing board, one next to my machine and one next to my chair! One of my favorites is not a sewing notion, but a canning notion. It is a magnet on a stick used for picking up canning lids. I use it to pick up pins I’ve dropped on the floor. Keeps my granddaughter busy of a while.
    Cat

  251. Wendy says:

    Probably my ripper.hate having to use it. But glad
    I own one(or10)

  252. Chris says:

    So many favourites – old essentials – my rotary cutter and mat, clover seam ripper. My newest favourite would have to be my clover wonder clips

    I am intrigued by this ruler and have seen it reviewed on blogs with positive comments. If I don’t win – I’ll have to buy!

  253. Ruby Rose says:

    My favorite notion is my rotary cutter and my little rubber handle thread snips. I use both of these items all the time.

  254. My favorite notion is a ruler b/c they make my piecing precise. I would love to try your rulers for squaring up. I want my quilt blocks to be close to perfect.

  255. I would have to say my rotary cutter. Cutting is my hardest chore, and my slowest for fear of making a mistake. I really like your rulers, because I haven’t found a comfortable way(if there is such a thing) to make QSTs, and square in a square blocks. I avoid patterns that have them, but I hate doing that because they make the quilt so interesting. Oh well, this old dog is finding it hard to learn new tricks.

  256. donna says:

    my favorite notion is my rotary cutter – my hands could never cut all these pieces with scissors!

  257. I have TWO favorite notions…I cannot separate them to make one more favorite than the other…my rotary cutter and the 3″x18″ ruler…they are great! I would love to win these rulers to add to my limited collection, and from there, more accuracy and variety!

  258. It would have to be my rotary cutter, I can’t imagine making my quilts with just scissors like they used to. Xx

  259. Donna Phelps says:

    My favorite notion has always been a ruler. A rotary cutter is great, but not without a good ruler. They just go together. I love multi-functional rulers like this set.Fun.

  260. Bari Jo says:

    I really enjoy rotary cutting anything I can. Probably the rotary cutter is my favorite notion. I would love to try more of your rulers! :O)

  261. KJ says:

    My favorite notion changes from project to project. But anything that allows me to piece with precision is high on my list. Sharp machine needles (Organ Titanium), Aurifil thread, and a new rotary cutter blade are all essential to my happiness on any project.

    I use your rulers regularly. They definitely ‘fit’ in the category of enabling precision.

    Thanks,

    Karen

  262. Judy1522 says:

    My favorite notion will probably always be my rotary cutter. Great tutorial, I will be looking for your rulers in my local stores.

    Terry

  267. Patty says:

    My favorite notion must be rulers because I seem to think I need one of everyone that is available. Sometimes I even buy ruler only to get home and find that I already one or maybe two of the same ruler in my stack already. I need a better way to store them so I know what I have. Thanks for the opportunity to win your fabulous rulers.

  268. I love my seam ripper. As I am quite new to quilting I need to use it more frequently than I would like to..

    I’m such a love-the-one-you’re-with kind of girl. I love whatever ruler or tool I need and have at hand right now, which tends to be a really good ruler and my cutter and mat. However, lately, I’ve come to appreciate the benefits of a good heavy pincushion – one that won’t scoot across the table when I want to push a pin in. Love your rulers!

    My favorite notion is a clover needle with the hole so I can put the thread in by clicking it in. I can’t imagine working on FMQing without it. I am realizing though how a good ruler/template can make cutting and designing process more fun! Thank you for putting my name in the hat for this drawing! Fingers crossed!

    Gosh, I don’t know that I have a single favorite notion. I’m a gadget geek and a sucker for any new gadget or ruler. I guess, since I’m currently in the middle of a project that uses a bazillion half square triangles I would have to say that the Easy Angle is my current favorite notion.

    Right now, Thangles, because I have to make a lot of HST.
