The frixion pen is my favorite. I use one a lot. Thanks for the giveaway.

Connie said...

white aurifil thread

Nhalia said...

The alphabitties!

Just Quilt It said...

Love the Frixion pens! Great quilt!

Cecilia said...

Is the Aurifil thread a notion? 😊 That would be my fist choice, the second one would be the small ruler.

Bec said...

That's a really cute quilt. Thanks for the video. I'm very visual and love videos.

I have a question. I love frixion pens, but was wondering...If I mark a quilt border for quilting and the marking is on there for say several weeks or maybe a couple of months, will frixion marking still iron off easily? I'm doing a queen sized quilt and have limited time for quilting it on my domestic machine. It may take me a while. :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

Karen said...

I love my Creative Grids rulers, and I have also been enjoying my Alphabitties. I attach them to my fabric stacks with Wonderclips.

I haven't bought the yet, but have decided that the Alphabitties have great value in organizing and keeping pieces straight.

JANET said...

Just started using Frixion pens to mark cutting lines. Love them. Had to search for one, as my son took it to write something, and had to tell him that the ink was disappearing. It is easy to keep up with now!

CommTeach said...

Great tutorial! Rulers are the best!

Rebecca said...

Love my Frixion pen that I got from FQS!

Anita said...

Aurifil thread - it is the only thread I use

Definitely the iron, as mine is about to bite the dust! It gets 99% of its use in quilting activities in my quilt room....thanks for the giveaway! Deb E / Oregon mdenders@msn.com

Pamela said...

I love that Quilters cut and press. No need to jump up and go to the ironing board! Thanks for sharing this fun pattern!

Deborah said...

This looks like a very fun pattern, thank you. I enjoyed checking out the other bloggers' fabric choices. The frixion pen was my favorite notion used in your tutorial. Thanks for the chance to win.

Bella Pink said...

Alphabitties! I want to try them. I have CreativeGrids 30 degree ruler is very useful........

Ellee said...

The small ruler is my best friend. The smaller size is convenient and so much easier to manage when marking or cutting smaller pieces of fabric. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

Christel Janz said...

The small ruler looks like a perfect size to mark the diagonal lines on small squares.

Keli Quillen said...

I love my little ruler! I was also eyeing the iron, I need to replace mine. I haven't tried the pens but it sounds like I should! Thanks for the pattern and video!

Dawn F said...

I would like to try the Fixion pen as well. I have used a normal disappearing pen, but the fact that this would disappear when I am pressing saves a step!

Janie said...

You have a lot of great notions, but I am leaning towards the Alphabities. Thanks!

Patchwork and Play said...

Those Tula Pink scissors are very cool!

The Sew Man said...

I love the Tula Pink scissors!

Nicole G said...

I love the Tula Pink scissors! Thanks for the great quilt.

Becky said...

I like the smaller ruler.

Terri in BC said...

I love the Purple Thang - can't sew without it!

Judy Forkner said...

Like so many others, I really like Frixion pens. Mine was well used today!

Jo said...

I love the Frixion pens!

HeatherK @ A Reformed Heath'n said...

I love the little FQS ruler. I got one in the Sew Sampler box and it stays by by sewing machine. I use it ALL the time. I love this pattern! This would make a great charity quilt!

Shanna Smith said...

Love friction pens! I use them with every project!

Rae Ann said...

Love aurifil thread!!!!!!!!!

OGGgirl said...

Has to be the Alphabitties! I have two sets!

KathleenD said...

I really appreciate my Cut & Press mat. However, I want to try your Alphabitties & the small 2.5 " ruler. THANK YOU for this wonderful LC POP quilt pattern!

suzanprincess said...

I liked the Quilters' Cut and Press, as it looked like it would be so useful during block assembly.

Pam Johnson said...

Love the Alphabitties!

shout4joy said...

the Cut and Press mat!

Linda Williamson said...

The Frixion pen is a great tool to have. Thanks for the giveaway.

I love that Creative Grids ruler! I'm definitely putting that on my to buy list!

Mojakz5 said...

Love, love, love the ALPHABITIES!!

Gus and Heather said...

Love aurofil thread, frixon pens, small rulers are great! So are the alphabitties!

Sandra Walker said...

A variety of rulers is good, but I do find myself gravitating to smaller ones for marking diagonal lines like the one you used in the video, easy to maneuver!

Gloria Cotten said...

Frixion pens are fantastic! cotten.gloria@gmail.com

Tiffany said...

I love my Frixion pen! I only wish they didn't run out if ink so quickly!

Marsha said...

Don't mistake a yellow highlighter for a Frixon pen. It does 't come out well, especially when you steam it really hard trying to make it disappear! Love Frixon pens.

Judy said...

My favorite notion is the Frixion pen. I need a new one, too!

DaneBirder said...

I'm another fan of the Frixion pen.

mangozz said...

Really love Frixion pens. I use them all the time.

Rosemary said...

I love the Frixion pens and use them often. Perfect. Another great quilt from FQS!

Lamse said...

Aurifil thread is definitely my favorite notion! Any other brand I have used leaves excessive lint and feels "sluggish" through my needle.

Mom C said...

Aurifil thread. Thanks

Evelyn Ware said...

I got my first Aurifil thread from Fat Quarter Shop in a small bundle. I have to say it's the best thread ever!! Love it!

Sarah J said...

Every time I see Alphabitties in action I want them more and more! Love this quilt!

SeeAmySew said...

The Alphabitties have saved me from Jack the ripper quite a few times. Beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing!

robin said...

Alphabities!!!!!

Kristine said...

I'd like to try the frixion pens. Thanks for sharing and for your always-awesome videos!

Meghan Heslin said...

I use my Alphabitties all the time--they are wonderful!

Diane Beavers said...

Love the Frixion pens as the ink disappears as soon as I press. Thank you.

Rachel said...

I liked the Cut N Press! It would be great to move my iron to where I am instead of going to it! ;)

Anonymous said...

I like the Press and Cut Quilter's Mat--would be very handy!

Tama Trussoni said...

My favorite motion is the Friction pen. I use mine all of the time!

Becky S. said...

I love Aurifil thread! Thanks for the fun pattern.

SewDoUQuilt said...

I've been doing some machine embroidery and use the blue water soluble pen to mark the placement, which is handy. jarvenpa1ne at gmail dot com

Karrie S said...

I love my thread snips

Jen Barnard said...

I really liked the small ruler you used for marking the diagonal lines.

Debbie Lorenz said...

My favourite notion is the Quilters Cut & Press; it looks very handy; i think I need to treat myself to one. :)

Lee said...

Hands down my favorite is the Alphabitties!!

Sharon said...

LOVE the Alphabitties!

Hobbesmom said...

I always love Aurifil, but that little ruler you used, I have it and wow. Accurate, no skid and easy to read. Love love love

Pat said...

frixon pens are the greatest!

Carol C Thomas said...

I would like to try the small Creative Grids ruler! I have so many large rulers that are just too large.

d said...

I loved the Quilters' Cut and Press II; I'd never seen that before and think it's a great idea!

Many thanks for this great giveaway.

Nancy said...

Aurifil thread is my favorite thread to use when sewing quilt tops.

Arf2-D2 said...

The quilters press mini ironing board looked really useful. It seems to be small enough to be portable.

Michael Adams said...

I like the Quilter's Cut and Press.

OhioLori said...

Looooove those Blue Alphabitties!! Love the Quilt too! Thank you for the Pattern & videao! :)

Thank you too..for chance to win your Give-a-way!! :D

pajtr said...

My favorite is the Fat Quarter Shop ruler by Creative Grids!!
I added a Creative Grids ruler onto a fabric order from the Fat Quarter Shop a couple years ago, and * loved* it! I then replaced all my old rulers with Creative Grids rulers (and treated myself to some special ones!) from the Fat Quarter Shop, and bought extras as gifts for my grown children, too!! (Those rulers are SO much safer to use!)

Unknown said...

Friction pen and Alphabities!!

Rosemary Rivas said...

I have been doing a lot of embroidery lately so the Erixon pens are indispensable. Aside from that I have different scissors/shears for cutting different kinds of fabric. I use the good old standby steel/metal ones that can be sharpened for synthetic fabrics and the fancy ones for all cotton fabrics when not using my rotary cutter. Having sharp good scissors are indispensable. I also have "dedicated" scissors for paper.

June D said...

That marking pen looks very useful. Cute and quick quilt block/pattern. Thanks!

AmyScrapSpot said...

I LOVE the friction pen, they are sooo awesome!!

Afton Warrick said...

Thank you so much for your generosity! I am beyond excited.
