  1. Great tute at Sew We Quilt!
    I checked out their website, and there were a few things I'd like to have (besides the binding tool). One is that wearable mini LED light. I sure could have used that a few weeks ago when I was trying to file when the power was out!!! And the price is very nice too. I also sent the URL for the longarm accessories to my friend who recently bought one. :D

  4. First, great tutorial. That little gadget is now on my list to get. Some people are so smart to think these things up for us. The thread stem is also a genius idea. Sew simple too! I also like the imagicut duets. Lots of nice choices.

  5. Good Golly - have you ANY idea how long we struggled to calculate the border fabric requirements for a Cali King the other day? And there's a calculator that did it in SECONDS! All I had to do was plug in the border measurements! EASY-PEASY!

    And I'd LOVE to have that binding tool - I usually struggle with that, do a dry-fit, sew, then usually reverse-sew & redo! Don't see it could get any easier than what you've shown! Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. Thanks for the tutorial!
    I browse their web and found this "Gypsy Gripper" from the shop. I never see this notion before.I think it will be a great tool for pressing the ruler while cutting fabric with rotary cutter. Sometimes, I will almost cut my fingers :)

  22. I have to say that the CutRite Bind Up tool is my favorite--as a new quilter getting ready to bind my first quilt, this looks like the tool I need. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I liked the Snappliue line of premade appliques- what a great time saver! Also like the binding tool you tuted earlier- am afraid of doing binding so this tool will make it easier to try it for once!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Barbara, thanks so much for the tutorial. I've struggled and bought every tool on the market (or so I thought!) and still struggle. If I don't win, I'm buying this tool!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I bookmarked quilters paradise cause I saw several rulers that I want to get later. One is the 9 patch ruler.

  34. This miracle tool makes so very much sense! I have done bindings that way but it takes lots of thinking through. This makes it direct and easy!

  40. I would be very interested in the mini LED light. I have never seen one of these. I do a lot of hand sewing and cross stitch in the evenings and my eyes need a boost of light most of the time. This seems to be a really great idea for adding a little extra light focused right on the stitching. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a great little shop. I thought the thread stem was a creative tool for sewing. I love how it attaches to your machine...doesn't take up much room at all!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes, I read your blog every day.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow - I love the laser cut kits! I have had the Motifs book for quite a while now and have been wanting to whip up a few of those, but just haven't had the time. Having a kit already cut and ready to applique would be heavenly!!! I especially love the dragonfly - those colors are luscious! I'll be going back to spend more time later today - lots of great stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have several of your buttons on my blog too! And by the way - I loved your tutorial on the binding tool. I had never thought I never needed one of those until I saw how easy the tool can make it. Hope I win, but if not I'm thinking I'll probably have to buy one now to make my life easier. =^..^=

  53. Thank you so much for the informative post this morning. I had not seen that tool yet but, it's sure something I can use.

    There are a number of great tools at Quilter's Paradise that I now can say I'd love to have after checking their site.

    There was one however, that really caught my eye. The Thread Stem looks awesome. My machine never used to have problems using metallic threads for my machine embroidery and then all of a sudden, it's decided it doesn't like them at all. I have tried everything except one thing. Well, actually I DID try it but had to return it. There is a multiple spool thread stand that hooks onto my Viking Designer I sewing machine and it worked really well BUT, I always had to empty every spool off that stand each night or anytime I was not sitting at my machine which really defeated the purpose of having a multiple spool stand. You see, my beautiful Ragdoll kitty was thrilled to see what he felt was a new multiple thread toy for him to play with. No matter how much I tried to explain to him that it was NOT for him, he totally ignored me as cats seems to do so well. I know the dangers of cats and thread after losing my kitty as a teen after she ate my Mom's thread from her machine. Because of that, I had to take it down and return it. BUT, one secret that many swear by when having trouble with metallic threads is to put it onto the table below or in a jar next to your machine but then it bounces all over. The "Thread Stem" looks like it would be awesome to have to help guide thread in the right direction more accurately than to just set the spool on the table.

  65. I love the Threader and think it would make my sewing with cones easier than that darn coffee cup taking up space. Thank you for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wow they have some cool stuff! I love the thread stem because I use a cone more often than not and it would be great to feed the thread properly, and the sewing machine seam guide would be fantastic for getting my seams right!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Thanks for pointing me to Quilter's Paradise--what great ideas they have, and so generous with the free calculators. I especially liked the Pieces to yardage calculator. I am definitely going back to order a thread stem, but I'll wait to see if I need to order the CutRite Bind Up tool or not. LOL They have so many great ideas/products.

  93. Fantastic tutorial Barbara, I've always folded them, creased them & done a straight seam as I couldn't figure out the 45 degree angle stuff (just too lazy to try I suspect). This makes it look so easy!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I signed up for the newsletter....looks very interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I went and signed up for the newsletter too, so if I don't win the tool, I'll have to actually buy it ;)

  101. Awesome tute! Thanks for introducing this miracle tool!!
    While at Quilter's Paradise I spotted a huge mat cutter and this would be perfect for my studio!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Great tutorial! I follow your blog

    ReplyDelete
  103. Quilter's Paradise has lots of great items! I would get a lot of use out of the square up templates set. I really appreciated your tutorial. I have gotten pretty good and doing the binding cuts without the tool, but I can see how it would make it so much easier and quicker. Thanks for entering me in the draw.

    ReplyDelete
  104. What a great looking tool. I am always having trouble remembering how to finish off bindings. Have to get out the reference book every time.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Jeri Kelly's kits jumped out at me right away on the Quilter's Paradise website. I love her patterns.

  108. What a great place. I found lots of things that would be helpful to me. Two in particular jumped out:

    (1) Press Pal Ironing Board - I have very limited space where I sew and often find myself running into another room to press because it's the only place I had available to open up my board. This small board would be wonderful to have right next to my machine. Would definitely make my life easier.

    (2) Toni Whitney Laser Cut Kits - I'm currently working on one of her many horse patterns and cutting all of those pieces by hand is taking forever. My niece is patiently waiting for her beautiful wall hanging. Would love to do another to go along with this one, but oh, the cutting .. lol Love the idea of just opening up the package and having everything ready to be fused into place.

  113. Well, besides the great tool you showed us (great job on the tutorial by the way), I love, love, love those laser cut kits. One of my "NewFO" projects this year is something applique to improve my skills. I might just have to get those daffodils, or black eyed susans - two of my favorite flowers. The calendar motifs are cute too.
    Thanks for showing me another great place to order fun quilty stuff from.

  116. What a great tutorial and tool. I need to find me this tool as I never seem to be able to join together my binding correctly. I have printed so many different instructions on how to do it but I'm still struggling.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Was rather taken with the lazer cut Imigicut appliques, great idea. I wasnt familiar with this site so thanks for letting me know about it. Lots of great tools, there goes the budget! I do need one of those binding tools, mine never come out right either. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

  124. I love the CutRiteTM Nine Patch Ruler, I'm not afraid of math but this would seriously speed things up around here! I do a lot of quilting from sampler books like the Civil War Diary Quilt and old magazines so this would cut down on the number of graphs and maths I do before I get to start cutting and piecing. Thank you for the lovely giveaway. kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  128. loved your tut at Samm's! this is the part I detest the most when making a quilt. somehow I get the ends twisted no matter what I do. Then when I finally get it, I write down my directions which then become totally useless the next time I try to follow them. they make absolutely NO sense! so, yeah, I'd love to win this tool!

    lots of good stuff over at Quilter's paradise! The custom rulers are adorable! what a great gift for guild members!!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I joined a guild to learn to quilt but so far have only made quilt tops. One of my goals for this year is to finish these projects. So your tutorial about binding and the nifty tool for doing it correctly is timely for me. I visited the Quilters Paradise website and would love to get the nine patch ruler. I just spent the last two days using up my scraps to make 35 of the 60 nine patch blocks I need for a new quilt top. Thanks for the great tips. I'm also a cat lover and find your kitty details endearing.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Fabulous tutorial for a great tool! I have never seen the joining of binding so clearly explained. Thanks sew much!

  131. Thanks for the good tutorial at stashmanicure. Both my mother and I could use this tool as joining binding ends well is a challenge. I already follow your blog.

  133. Personalized Laser Cut Christmas Ornaments from quilters paradise isn't exactly quilt, yet the ability to put names on the ornaments, or some of the rulers, is a nifty idea. I also like those McKenna Ryan laser cut kits! Thanks for introducing me to their online shop!

    ReplyDelete
  134. you have talked about that forever, but seeing it in action is awesome... I so need one :) I checked out the notions and I love the over the ear mini led light... it would help with photos... reading... embroidery, everything!

  135. I like the Mini LED Light. My aging eyes could use that!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Besides the Bind Up Tool, the Mini LED light caught my eye. I could really use a light like that!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Oh wow!!! This tool seems like it is too good to be true!!! I am new to quilting. I wish I had a nickel for every time I had to rip out the seam when I was trying to finish off the binding! I really liked the square off templates. The mimi LED light was cool but I wear 2 hearing aids so that wouldn't work for me.

  146. Barbara, The item I liked best at Quilter's Paradise is the Cut Rite Bind Up too. Your tutorial was great, and I don't know why I didn't pay attention when you first started talking about it. The way I finish the ends of my binding is how I learned from Sally Collins in a workshop with her years ago, but I think this binding tool will be easier. Thanks. Sharon - ssauser@dishmail.net

  163. I love the humongous cutting mat. I want one so bad. I would need a bigger table but that is a good excuse to get a new table.

  171. Oh, I forgot to say that I really like the tutorial about the CutRite Bind Up. Looks so easy! I can see where I'll be going on payday.

  172. I love those crazy cah-ra-zee neon green rulers. It's so nice to have something with jazz instead of just clear rulers. And LOVE that calculator for quilt measurements too. Anything to eliminate all the math requirements.

  174. I'm going to do my best to consolidate this into one message. Otherwise I have to keep scrolling up to see what else I need to do to have my best chance of entering. I did the tutorial um 3 times. Once in the e-mail since I'm already signed up for your blogs, then again when I got here, and a third time at Sew We Quilt. Then I got lost over at Quilter's Paradise. Wow, this is a company that loves quilters. I guess the place I stayed the most was the notions page since every quilter needs notions. But I was in awe of all the wonderful templates and cutting mats. I can pick a size that I want and even have certain ones etched with what ever I want on it. You can even decide if you want a hole or not and where you want it. I prefer no holes. The prices are great. Been putting off buying a new cutting mat but I found the place to buy it now. Took me a while to find where to sign up for their newsletter but I finally scrolled up and just used your link. Wish I could post your button on my blog but I don't have a blog and am amazed at you and others that do. Talk about Brightening my day. this was it :)

  175. I could really use that binding tool. I went to the website and love the 9 patch tool. Their prices are great.

  176. I liked many things, the mini LED light topped the list though. My sewing space isn't as brightly lit as I would like and that little light would help. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  178. I visited over at Quilter's Paradise and found somethings I really liked. Being a Byrd - I loved the laser cut Home Tweet Home kits. There are so many to choose from. I think they are my favorite and would love any one of them.
    Coudn't resist spending some gawk time on the blooming dogs too. Haven't seen those before :)

    Your button is on my blog in one of my posts.
    I don't really understand buttons -can you explain them to me? I'm so new to this - the buttons are so cute and I love them but don't understand what they are for.
    Thank you,
