I pulled out my Hawaiian Sunset quilt. It’s a long term UFO. I think it’s been on my bucket list of quilts to make for years and years…I’ll have to look again, but I think for over 10 years. I had pulled fabric and had a tiny start on it. I have the four patches that go around the quilt done and started the nice patches that are in the center of the blocks.
I needed more center nine-patch blocks and there were a few half-sewn four patches so I thought I would work on them and get a true count on what I needed to get made.
That led me to pull out my BladeSaver Thread Cutter. I thought I would do a review for you while I was at it. Heather at Purple Hobbies sent a BladeSaver Thread Cutter to me to review at the same time that she sent the Third Hand Binding Tool. You can see my review for the Binding Tool HERE. I did a video on using the Third Hand Binding Tool as well. You can find that HERE.
So far, I have loved Heather’s products. She is great to work with. One of the things I love most about her company is that Heather is a quilter and designs things that she herself feels she needs to make quilting easier.
To onto the Bladesaver Thread Cutter… It comes packaged like this…
Some VERY minor assembly is needed to get the blade in place. See the slit, at the top, there is a screw there to unscrew.
Inside once you unscrew that, it comes apart like this…
It was time for a new blade in my rotary cutter so I popped it off and put it in the Bladesaver Thread Cutter as shown.
I assembled it by tightening the screw.
I popped it in place and it’s ready to use. How easy was that??
The beauty is that this cutter will truly last forever. You can change the blades yourself. You can recycle your old rotary cutter blades. It’s a great deal.
Now if you want to see it in action, I filmed a fast one-minute or so video. Just push the arrow and it will play.
Something else I love about Heather’s products is that they come in many different colors. I, of course, picked red. There are 15 colors in total!! They also come in three different sizes, 28, 45, and 60 for all of the different sized rotary cutters. HERE is a link to see all of the sizes and styles available.
I also love that the flower can be taken out and threads can be clipped that way too. All in all, I’m in love with this. I actually think I am going to buy a second one so I can have one at each sewing machine. YEP. I’m too lazy to go get one when I need it.
Heather extended her 10% discount coupon for you. If you go to her site, Purple Hobbies (HERE is the link) you can get 10% off anything you buy if you use the code JoSentMe. (type it in as all one word)
I am so impressed with Heather. She is building her company by manufacturing all of this by coming up with designs and creating them with 3-D printers. Make sure to check out her about page as it’s really quite interesting. She is truly a small business making big steps into the quilting world.
I’m just thrilled that her products are good quality items that I can totally put my stamp of approval on!! I also love that her items are very affordable and perfect to gift to friends. Go check her out!
…me, I’m going back to the sewing machine so I can work some more on my Hawaiian Sunset quilt.
