  3. I have a lot of favorites, but the one that I have been enjoying that I recently added is a wooden seam roller to help with finger pressing open seams. It is a tool used for h working with wallpaper if I remember correctly. Christa Quilts has it, it has helped with pressing seams open easily.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I currently love my round, rotary cutting mat. I trimmed several hundred half square triangles and it's made that chore sooo much easier.

    I do like my marking roller/tool, the new one in purple without "teeth"! Much better than the old ones with teeth!

  10. my favorite tool, that i only recently acquired, and absolutely HATE to have to use, is my seam ripper. it's a havel's ultra-pro seam ripper. it's kind of like a scalpel. and it makes short work of my unfortunate mistakes.

    thanks so much for the giveaway chance!!!

  11. Hmmm...I love love love my clover wonder clips, but I think the tool I use the most is my orange peeler! Yup, that blue one that comes free in oPackages of sun kist oranges! It's great for poking corners and turning tight lines, creases like a Hera marker, finger presses seams...it doesn't peel an orange very well though (I use a Tupperware orange peeler for that!)
    Thank you to the chance to win!

  12. My favorite is an add a quarter ruler for paper piecing.

  13. I would probably say my Olfa light-it has a little supply caddy in the base. It helps so much when sewing at nighr.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hi Kati, I've really enjoyed reading about your quilting adventurs. You are amazing at quilting! I've also really enjoyed your favorite tools posts this week. I even have one or two of these tools already. I don't quilt as well or as much as you do, but I sure do love to choose a pattern and fabric. My favorite tool is my rotary cutter.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My favorite quilting tool would have to be my 1/4" foot, for now. A close second is definitely my rotary cutter!

    I am drooling over your last quilt post of the large star quilt! Simply stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My favorite for cutting strips is the June Taylor Shape Cut Plus. I use it all the time. I am wearing it out. All the prizes look great. Thanks for a great giveaway. Mary

    ReplyDelete
  17. Many favorites also but what I can't sew without are my clip on magnifying glasses! Age, wonderful age.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have so come to depend on my rotary cutter to save time in quilting but never could I have imagined the beauty and variety of beautiful fabrics available today when I very first became interested in sewing fifty years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Def couldn't live without my Olfa rotary cutter! What a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  20. my favorite tool is the mat and rotary cutter. one can't live without the other ! I just hate cutting with scissors !

  21. I love my Prym ergonomic seam ripper as I need a seam ripper way too often... Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  22. My favourite sewing tool is my computer - so I can access amazing blogs and get new ideas! My favourite fabric is Echino - always such nice bright colours and interesting designs.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's hard to say I have a favorite but I do love my magnetic pin bowls. I used to have a fear of dropping a pin and I do pin a lot. Now I always have two going .... one at my pinning station (aka dining room table)and one at the sewing machine to collect them as they come out.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think my most-used tool lately has been the Internet, it's so easy to look up anything you need to know, find patterns, get inspiration, discover new blogs and shops and groups, so many resources! and of course, I get to enter cool contests! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love my Hera marker but my favorite is my homemade ironing board. I used Sharon Schamber's instructions. I keep it on top of my regular ironing board and it sits at right angle to my sewing machine at "sit down" level so all I have to do is swivel to the left to press as I'm sewing. It's much harder than a regular ironing board and I can really press things flat - really great for when piecing or paper piecing. Thanks for the chance to win such a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Besides my cutter and ruler, the thing I couldn't sew without are pins. I have a lot of small containers hidden away in my room because you never know when you need one :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I can't sew without my thread snips. I hate using anything else to ship apart chain pieced blocks. Thank you for the chance to win these great new tools! blue.crab.quilting(at)gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  28. My favourite fabric at the moment has to be that Essex Yarn-dyed, I used it to make a paper pieced pillow for my mum recently and I love it! My favourite tool would be the stork embroidery scissors my mum gave me when Istarted sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think for me, like others, it is the Olfa Rotary cutter. I recently got a more ergonomic one and though it took a bit to get used to, now I love it and could not go back to the old one.
    Thank you for a great giveaway, and it was very useful to find out about new tools.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oy! Tough choice... Tie between my olfa 60mm cutter, oversized cutting table, gingher scissors and homemade 24x48" ironing board ;) not sure which I could live without!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow what a great giveaway, thanks for the chance! My favorite sewing tool is painters tape - I use it to mark sewing lines on my machine and for quilting lines for straight line quilting!

  32. A fave for me is my iTouch. It keeps me company as I sew and improves my singing tremendously if I turn the volume up. I can sew for hours , murder the lyrics , drown out my swearing when I unsew and best of all no comes down to pester me. ....I get more done.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My favorite tool is my sticky clothes roller for removing lint. I use it to clean up my cutting board and blocks and ironing board and tops and everywhere that gets stray threads.

    ReplyDelete
  34. For now my favorite tool is my rotary cutter, but I'd like to try some of these others out as well!

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a fun giveaway-thanks for the opportunity! I think my favorite sewing tool is my old school Kenmore avocado green workhorse sewing machine :)

  37. My favorite tool is my ergonomic rotary cutter.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great giveaway. My favorite sewing tool is, unfortunately, the seam ripper. Can't live without it. And as for fabrics, I really don't have a favorite one because it depends on what I sew. Love and kisses, Aida

  39. I simply couldn't do without my curved tip sewing scissors. I love them for snipping threads. It prevents me from inadvertently clipping the fabric. Just asked me how I know that!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My favorite things are my ultra-thin glass head pins...don't know how I'd get those seams to line up without them! Thanks for your generous giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Definitely a rotary cutter-couldn't think of quilting without one!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My favorite tool is the clover forked pins, I love how well they hold seams together, especially if there extra bulk from lots of points meeting.
    soozemoroney(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  43. I loooove my teeny tiny embroidery scissors that live right next to my machine! I also keep a pair of tweezers right there too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. As a quilter who started quilting using templates and scissors to cut all my pieces, I must say my favorite tools are a rotary cutter and a quilting ruler - wow, what a difference. Ny newest favorite tool is Clover Wonder Clips.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have only the very basic stuff ( like garden gloves I bought for 2 bucks for quilting) but one tool I always keep handy is a small, stiff bristle artist's paintbrush. Whenever I'm winding bobbins, I grab that brush to sweep up all the lint in my bobbin case :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm loving wonder clips right now - they're really saving my poor little fingers while attaching binding!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have recently discovered the Hera Marker & it is amazinG!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can't live without my rotary cutter and cutting mat. Both are so time saving. eliz.i@sympatico.ca

    ReplyDelete
  49. Your posts this week have been sooo informative. Thanks for putting this together. I'm a big fan of Creative Grids rulers. Have 8.5" x 24.5", 15.5" square, 9.5" square, and a 2.5" square. That seems to meet most of my needs. Debora(dot)Exum(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  50. My favorite sewing notion is my rotary cutter. I can't even cut a straight line with a scissors!

    ReplyDelete
  51. My favorite tool is my 24 x 36" cutting mat. Makes cutting so much easier.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I am new to quilting so I have not used any of the tools that you have listed in your giveaway. But I would love the chance to try them!!
    One of my favorite things - I use blue painters tape to mark my machine. It really helps to keep me in line.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I guess I've started to really take my sewing tools for granted, as I had to think hard here! I have a small rotary mat that swivels, and I really like it for trimming HSTs. No need to reposition the fabric - you just turn the mat. I find they are easier to trim accurately th.at way.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wowyzowy what a giveaway!!! I would say my favourite fabric is Joel Dewberry lime green herringbone from the Modern Meadow line. I'm hoarding a tiny piece and will use it on a rainy day soon I'm sure!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think I have to go with my clover magnetic pincushion. it makes piecing go so much faster since i don't have to constantly start and stop. i can just chuck the pins toward the cushion and not have to worry about them falling on the ground to be eaten/trampled by the cats and dog.

    ReplyDelete
  56. My favorite tool... either my 4"x4" squaring up ruler, my floor lamp aimed right at my machine (I HATE shadows).... or Pinterest!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Great series ending with a great giveaway, you rock! :)

    My favorite tool, other than my sewing machine of course, is my rotary cutter. I can't cut straight with scissors to save my life! Rotary cutter and cutting mat = happy happy me.

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a lovely giveaway! I would have to say that one of my favorite tools is my rotary cutter...I couldn't imagine having to cut things out with scissors! Soooo nice to have that.

    I also love my #57 presser foot for perfect 1/4" quilting seams.

    Thank you for a lovely giveaway....so many nice prizes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. My favorite tool is the Fiskars Razor point scissors. It is about the size of your old kindergarten scissors, but they are SOOOO sharp, and with the razor point, you can really get into the finest places. The other day I had a thread hook on my presser foot and I couldn't get it with my seam ripper, but my Fiskars got it no problem.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love my sewing weights so I don't have to pin everything when cutting out a pattern.

  69. What a wonderful give away!

    I know this sounds silly, but I can't live without a seamripper. There are times when things are good and there are times where they are not. I like when my stitches are nice.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love polka dot fabrics and rotary cutters. Where would we be without rotary cutters?

    ReplyDelete
  71. My favorite tool truly is my "awl" or as some would call it the "stilleto" . I use it help guide my fabric, I use it to help "hold" fabrics and even find times to use it during my ironing/pressing.

    I "heart" working with linens, both in garments and in quilting. Such a beautiful, timeless material that just "words"

    ReplyDelete
  72. My favorite tools happen to be my gingher 8-Inch Knife Edge Shears...they have made my life so much easier...

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  79. My favorite thing is my pincushion/ort bag/scissor-tool holder just to the right of my machine. POckets on the front flap hold seam ripper, the purple thing, tweesers, scissors and a pencil with eraser. It's very handy and makes me smile seeing and using it. Jane

    ReplyDelete
  80. My favorite tool has got to be my rotary cutter, with a fresh blade! My new favorite fabric is Moda Bella Solids -so many colors, I love Coral. But I'd like to try the ones in your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  81. My favorite tool has to be my rotary cutter and mats. My biggest personal struggle with quilting is accuracy and I probably get a little too caught up on it, but i feel that my rotary cutter and mats (and rulers) give me a great head start on keeping my project on track and size.

    This was such a great series of posts and I learned about a lot of thing I didn't know existed. Can't wait to try them out!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  83. Humm Favorite tool! That is a hard choice, so I am left thinking what do I use the most. That would have to be my 6x24 ruler and rotary cutter. And I recently started sewing with Linen and LOVE it! It is just a joy to work with, except the price of course.

    ReplyDelete
  84. My favorite tool is my Creative Grids ruler. It's hard to choose just one thing, though.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Favorite tool? Probably my little 12" ruler... Growing up, my mom only used the big, wide ruler, so I never knew anything different until one day I decided I needed a smaller, more convienent tool ... I live my little guy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Wow! This is a super giveaway! Thanks for all the work that you put into this!

    Favorite tool? So hard to decide...my new machine (Janome MemoryCraft 6600) makes sewing a breeze. But I also love my Clover Wonder Clips for sewing on binding and my rotary cutter and mat... But if I could only have those things, I could get by... ;)

    Happy Easter!

    ReplyDelete

    Natalie at smileynann at yahoo

    ReplyDelete
  96. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

    deairdre at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  103. Can an automatic bobbin winder be considered a sewing tool? Favorite fabric: Bonnie & Camille's stuff is way cute!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Fabulous giveaway! I love my rulers...I'd be lost with out them but same can be said of my rotary cutter!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Rotary blade, I guess I am kinda newbie!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Without a doubt the June Tailor Shape Cut slotted "ruler" (can you really call it a ruler?). Love the short work it makes of cutting strips and squares. Just a reminder to anyone who buys one: keep the instruction sheet that comes with it for the 1/4" cutting guides.

    Great giveaway -- good luck to all!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. This was such a great series - thanks for sharing all your favorites! My newest favorite is my olfa rotating cutting mat - makes trimming blocks so easy :-)

    ReplyDelete

    My favorite fabric is Art Gallery Pure Elements and Textures.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I've been using the Olfa brand Rotary since I started quilting 25 years ago. It has been THE most important tool that I use. I'd love to try one of the newer models with easy access to replace blades. Thanks! Great reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I love my cut/iron pads! I have a small square one and two large rectangular ones. They are awesome to sit next to my sewing machine and iron as I piece and are flexibe to go on any surface.

  126. My favorite quilting tool is my collection of Omnigrip rulers. They have little grippy bits on the back which help keep them in place when I'm cutting fabric, very helpful!

    alegria_a at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  127. I love my Go! cutter for tricky curvy pieces. I will say that I don't like the Fiskars rotary cutter. Doesn't hold a candle to the Olfas.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Thanks for this great giveaway. My favorite notion is steam-a-seam - it's perfect for installing zippers! So much easier than pins.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I think my favorite tool is my computer for all of the tutorials I can learn from...a close second is my phone/mp3 player to listen to classic literature on audiobooks...love that when hand quilting!

  130. Right now, I am loving my add a quarter ruler. I got hooked on paper piecing at Sew South.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Great giveaway, and it was fun reading about your favorite things and all the others in the comments. One of my current favorites is my awl. I sewed through my finger once, and that was enough. Now I use the awl when I need to manipulate fabric close to the needle.

    ReplyDelete
  132. My favorite tool ... my 10 x 4 ruler. It is perfect for those small jobs when I don't need to use the big ruler!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I would definitely have to go with Wonder Clips. They are SO handy in so many ways! I like to use one of them to keep my tape measure wound up, so it doesn't get tangled in my sewing basket.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I couldn't live without self-threading needles. Great giveaway! So many wonderful items!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I love my new clover needle threader - since I seem to be sewing on more buttons than quilts at the moment...

    ReplyDelete
  136. My favourite tool would have to be my purple fabric marker and favourite fabric would probably be rock and romance which I really want to get some of yet :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. My walking foot! I dont know how I lived without it for so long!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
    My most-used tool, for which I have a love-hate relationship with, is my seam ripper. Ohhhh... what would I do without her? Yet at the same time, I cringe every time I pull her out of the drawer.

    Happy Sewing!!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I absolutely love my rotary cutter!

    ReplyDelete

  143. So much great stuff to try. My favorite of the moment is my Niagara starch. I just started using it before cutting and my piecing has never looked better.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Like everyone else, I love my rotary cutter!
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  145. Given the fact that I am still a less than perfect seamstress, I should probably say that my favorite tool is a seam ripper. :). Actually, my favorite tool is my rotary cutter and big mat!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I'm a pretty new quilter but I'm really loving my rotating cutting mat - I don't have a good cutting area set up and I make more accurate cuts when I can always cut from the same angle.

  147. My favorite sewing tool my 24" x 6" Omnigrip ruler. It is perfect for cutting and measuring. It isn't so big that it is unwieldy yet it can tackly 1/2 width of fabric like a champ! My favorite go-to fabric is Kona ash. Thanks for the giveaways. Fingers crossed!

  148. Wow! Generous giveaway for sure...and a new blog to follow, love that.

    My favorite tool is probably my purple thang, next to my rotary cutter and my favorite fabric is anything Art Gallery. It is like working with crisp batik but its regular fabric. Love it!

  149. Am I allowed two?! My favourite tools are my 0.5mm mechanical pencil and freezer paper. I use the pencil to mark my sewing lines, after I've ironed on my freezer paper templates - I couldn't manage without these two tools. Oh, and me 1" x 6" ruler, I have four of them!

  150. Wow! What an amazing giveaway - with so many winners! :)

    My favorite sewing tool is, well, let's be honest, my seam ripper because it gets so much use!

    I also really love my marking pencil ( a vintage one from my grandmother that is incredible)

  154. Favorite tool - probably my Olfa cutter. Least favorite - seam ripper, but not because it's bad, just because I hate doing it :) Current favorite fabric - the Comma line - awesome!

  155. I don't think I can live without my seam ripper. Not even sure what make it is but it slips through the mistake stitches like a hot knife through butter and therefore keeps the swearing to a minimum. Thanks for the chance in a fantastic giveaway!

  166. I recently purchased a Creative Grids 5 1/2" square and I have to say I love it. The markings are great and it doesn't slip at all. I will slowly be replacing many of my rulers with Creative Grids.

  168. My favourite tool at the moment is a frixion pen whixh I use to mark fabric - it steams off with the iron. I have to admit, I've been getting in the habit of writing the names of the pattern pieces right on the fabric when I'm making bags. So awesome!

  176. I'm a new quilter, but so far my favorite tool is my Olfa Deluxe Rotary cutter. I love that it's blade pops back in and I don't have to slide it in and out every time I use it. I'm pretty absent minded sometimes and I'm sure I would end up cutting myself if it weren't for that feature.

  182. I've really enjoyed reading the posts this week about favorites. My favorite quilting tool is my computer. I design my own patterns using Illustrator and often spend more time designing than sewing. Need to work on balancing that more.

  189. Here are a couple free-motion quilting tools I wouldn't quilt without. A Supreme Slider on the sewing machine bed makes it easier to push the quilt around. And, because quilting gloves are a nuisance to take on and off, I use Neutrogena hand cream to give my hands the "grip" needed to move a quilt around. Neutrogena doesn't leave any residue on a quilt, and is a great hand moisturizer. You should give it a try, Kati. Thanks for the chance to win any of these five super giveaway prizes!

  190. I like binding clips. They are holding my papers and fabric together for my EPP hexies and double as hair clips when I let my bangs get too long.

  191. My fav tool is my rotary cutter but would love to try the Clover clips.

  192. when hand quilting, I can't do without my magnetic top thimble. It holds the needle for me so I don't drop it and end up finding it with my bare feet later!
