From all of your responses to my question about your favorite tool, I'd say all of us quilters would be lost without our rotary cutters, cutting mats, and rulers of one size or another. I don't think anyone specifically mentioned their sewing machine that I can recall, but that's probably just because it's too darn obvious! I know just about all of us couldn't do without it.
My favorite ruler is one that's 6" x 12", although I bet I'd also love one that's 6-1/2"--maybe even better since so many things are cut to that width. I have several larger rulers, but they're so big that they get in my way; there's always room somewhere close by for 6" x 12".
A couple of you mentioned the cutting mats that turn, so you don't have to reposition your fabric when you're cutting. I've seen a couple of different brands--do any of you have a recommendation? I think I'd like to get one at some point, so any input would be helpful.
Okay, I know you're wondering, so . . . I picked a winner of the Twister tool--the winner is Jo, who said, "I use my 6.5 " square ruler more than any other tool. I love that little thing! Love your quilt...thank you." Jo, congratulations! Email me your mailing address (click on my profile and then click on email) and I'll get it in the mail to you. Thanks to the rest of you for playing along. If you have a chance and you're still interested, DO pick up one of these Twister tools--they're a lot of fun!
