Many quilt stores offer special sales during the holiday season, often titled: The 12 Days of Christmas. Unusual gadgets or specialty items are offered. This year my friend Robin surprised me with the ruler shown below by Clover. The Press Perfect hot ruler measures 2 1/2" x 9'. It's purpose provides a ruler to measure an edge of fabric and press as the same time. Other rulers will melt or warp and are too thick for a nice crisp fold. The pictures illustrate that many gradations, as small as 1/4" are printed on the ruler. I have been using mine for the past several days as I finished my last QAYG quilt.
This quilt, showing back on left, has 40 strips, many of which required a 1/4" fold to finish attaching the blocks. This new ruler was wonderful! Reminder though....turn off the steam on your iron!
I have no idea where or how I acquired the snippers shown, but they are so handy. Note the hooked blade on one side. It's great for taking stitches out... It's a one piece device!
