I like the idea of the Frixon pens, never thought about the fact that it disappears after ironing, so that would make a great way to mark your 1/2 square units! Great quilt, thanks for the free pattern!

Anonymous said...

The Reliable iron would be my absolute favorite, but I do like all the notions in the video and even though it's not a notion, I really like Kim's shirt!! I will never buy another Oliso iron as mine died recently, it's still under warranty and Oliso hasn't taken responsibility on it and has been difficult and useless to deal with!!!!

Linda Menkes said...

I like that ruler! It seems like the perfect size.

Tu-Na Quilts said...

Alphabities were my favorite notion from the tutorial. Although, I don't have any and still use snips of paper to do it. This would be a notion I would buy for myself.
kthurn(at)bektel(dot)com

KrisD said...

My favorite notion used in Kimberly's youtube video is definitely the Aplhabitties. They help to keep things organized. One of the best inventions ever!!! Thanks Kimberly! Love the free quilt pattern!
