Last week I told you about The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe in Manchester, Iowa. Today I’m telling you about what I bought.
This gray fabric. I was hoping to love it but once I got it home, I don’t. Well I do love it, just not for this project. I’m being super picky- I know.
I also picked up this cute little rabbit print fabric. That one is for the stash.
What I am MOST excited for is the new rulers.
I have PLENTY of rulers. I really didn’t need any at all but these are different. (I know, I know) How can rulers be different? But these are.
As soon as I got home I had to show them off to Hubby.
Here it is on my fabric. Try as I might the ruler doesn’t slide. It is wonderful. Hubby could easily see that the non slide feature will make cutting safer and make my cuts more accurate. I’m in love.
Typically I’m pretty good and don’t fall for everything new but these, I fell for hard. The rulers are made by Quilter’s Select. Here’s a link. There’s a video there you can watch that explains the rulers so you can really see how nice they are.I thought I had done pretty good at the quilt shop. Even though I got the rulers, I didn’t get much fabric…..but then I saw these and had to get them…..
They were only $5 but how could I not get them???
I love the little tags.
The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe is really nice and I enjoy stopping whenever I’m that way. So not much got added to the fabric stash but the ruler bin is pretty full. I think I’ll gift one of mine on to the Neighbor Girl. I gave her one of my vintage Singers a couple weeks ago. I probably should set her up with some sewing equipment.
