A while back I posted a review of my The Cutting Edge ruler.  Pat Sloan read my review (I know, right?) and offered to replace the ruler that I'd broken unwrapping my package (again, wow!).  Since Pat was so awesome to me and my original ruler still works perfectly (and I still love it), I thought I'd use the ruler for a giveaway!


Want to win an awesome ruler that sharpens your blades as you cut, doesn't slip around and is perfect for squaring up big blocks?  Who wouldn't, right?  So here's 3 ways to enter:

1.  Leave a comment on this post!  Easy right?  And since I'm thinking about taking the plunge and starting up a longarm quilting business, I'd love any comments about your thoughts or experiences with longarm quilting, links to great longarmers, etc.  And hey, if you want to help finance it, that would be awesome, too.  (kidding, unless you're my parents!)

2.  Blog about this giveaway and leave a comment letting me know.

3.  Add my blog to your link list/blogroll and leave a comment letting me know.

I'll be drawing the winner next Sunday.

Good luck!

  1. Hello! Thanks for commenting on my blog and letting me know about your giveaway. The ruler looks great. I have to admit that I don't completely get the Blythe doll thing either, although I am fascinated looking at the pictures of them.

  2. Let me start by saying, "thanks! for being so generous" I can think of one machine quilter you need to check out. http://thatcrazyquiltygirl.blogspot.com/ Let me know what you think! She is super exciting. I love that she encourages those of us that are rarely square. LOL

  4. Okay so this is not the first time I've heard of this ruler, I guess I need to get it. Oh and having one for bigger blocks. . that would be AWESOME. Super excited about seeing what you come up with if you get a machine.

  5. Oooh, I really want to try one of these! I found one at my lqs, but it was too small for what i wanted and they only had 1 size.
    I have never used a long arm quilter, but i used to have a mid arm system. I did some quilting for others, but I dont really have any words of wisdom... I just found that I didn't enjoy quilting for others, bc it took away from my quilting time. But i also had a very fussy toddler at the time. Good luck to you!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I've been so intrigued with this ruler! I haven't even seen one in a shop yet. As for long-arm quilting, I'm about to get a quilt done this way for the very first time so I have no previous experience. I'm very excited about it, though. I'll be able to make more quilts for friends and family if I get them long-arm quilted. And that's a good thing, right?

  7. I'm a newbie to quilting.. so any tool that I can add to my collection would be great!!

    just stumbled across your blog on the weekend and have it bookmarked :D
    ..may even get up the courage to do the single girl project!

  8. I have seen this ruler advertised and I'm thinking I really need one. Dull blades are so frustrating! As for the long arm business, I had a wise lady tell me the most important step is inspecting the quilt top with the customer when they bring it in. Note if seams are loose, things aren't square, etc. Sometimes she makes people take things back and re-work them before she agrees to quilt them. Having a well made top will enable you to produce a well made quilt. Also, use good thread!

  9. I don't know any long arm quilters to recommend. Never used one. Sorry. But thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh I have been eyeing this and would love to win one. Thanks for the chance.
    I quilt my own quilts but I do sell custom quilts. My words of advice if you want a longarm business is realize its a business. The fun can be dampened when you have to create on someones else's time frame, style and demands. Looking forward to seeing what you decide.

  13. A ruler that sharpens my rotary cutter that always seems to have a burr -- count me in - thanks for the generous giveaway. RE: longarm - have not used. Once I used a quilter with a computerized machine that only does edge to edge quilting - nothing hand guided. It was very expensive even though I selected a simple design she had used before. alternate email mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot)com

  18. Good luck with the long arm quilting! I have never had it done before, but what I have seen looks amazing. You will do great.

  19. Ooh! I've been eyeing those rulers....! I have quilted all of my own items so far -- but they've all been pretty small. I did 2 twin sized quilts & they were soooo tedious! I would love to find someone who does long arm quilting to help me with some other big projects I have planned. Plus, there's so many types of stitching the long arm can do that I (and my cheapy machine!) can't do.

    Thanks for the chance to enter!

  20. I would love to win the ruler. I've had no experience yet with LongArm quilters. I see the prices extra, but it's too hard to figure it out for me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I could use a new 12.5" square, mine is so worn and notched. I have 2 lovely local ladies who longarm for me - both have Statlers, but one is just computerized work and the other is fantastic at free motion work. But I do a lot of my own on my domestic machine.

  22. Thanks for the lovely giveaway :)
    I am a beginner so I have no experience in long arm quilting or quilters but I like Jackie's work at http://www.cvquiltworks.com/gallery/2/

  23. I have never used a longarm quilter...I wish I could, but the sewing budget is very small and I'm always desperate for more fabric :-)

  25. You are a brave soul. I send all my quilt to a LAQ - can't live without them so go for it - there's lots of work for them all.

  30. I would love to win the ruler but I'm afraid I can't give you any advice on longarm quilting as I'm just starting my adventures in quilting (but I'm loving it!)

    thanks!

  37. I would love to win one of these rulers - they sound awesome. I'm new to quilting, so don't have any advice for you. But I am in awe of the long arm machine. I've watched a video of the machine working online - WOW is all I can say! :)

  38. I would love to win one of those rulers. I've been looking at them at a local shop but they don't have a 12" one and that is the size that I need. Thanks for the opportunity to win one!=)

  39. I don't have one of these rulers... but sounds like a good deal.
    I've never long armed quilt but I have always wanted to give it a try. it looks like fun. :)

  43. I am starting a long arm business too. There are so many hints and suggestions I could not put them in one comment. I think the most important thing to remember is that when someone brings you a quilt it is their pride and joy and they want you to make it even more precious.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've read so many great things about this ruler, though I can't put it on my list right now, so I'd love to win one.
    I've never done longarm quilting but Im encouraging you to "Go for it". The days and the years go by quickly, and if you've given this a lot of careful thought, then it's time. Good luck!

  45. I've heard about this ruler, but, I haven't seen one and don't know anyone who has one. What a cool tool! I love rulers. I can't help you on long arms, since I'm a hand quilter. Sorry. I do know a few long arm quilters. Good luck.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have been itching to try one of these rulers. They just seem like an awesome idea.

    I have only had one quilt longarmed and I do love it. It is a simple meander which doesn't take away from the quilt design.
    I normally quilt my own quilts on my Babylock Espire.

  55. Hi! I'd love a chance to try one of these rulers - hanging my head in very dull blade shame. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I do my own quilting because having it done professionally is so expensive here in the UK and our fabric is much more expensive in the first place too!! Having said that I would love to have a quilt quilted on a longarm!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have read about these rulers and wondered if they worked okay. Would love to win one.
