    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't really stick to one favourite notion - I could say seam ripper - but to be true it's my least favourite though often used notion ... I will settle for my inch/cm ruler it's the only thing giving me a constant reminder how big inches are (and they are huge)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Mostly slightly more than a notion, and not that useful singly, but my healing cutting mat, rotary cutter and acrylic ruler are my favourites. So much easier and more accurate than scissors.

Now if this isn't considered a notion, then my I would have to say since I found "Fuse N Bind" I love using this on small wall quilts. It makes perfect corners on the binding. Thanks for the beautiful give away.

  64. I've been quilting a year and I'm becoming more and more in love with my 3" ruler. It's hard to believe things sewed with a 1/4" seam get out of square but they do and I love this little ruler to square them back up in a jiffy. Thanks for the chance to win.
