Without a doubt, it is my rotary cutter. I have been quilting so long that I remember when rotary cutters first became available. What a revolution! No more cutting with scissors and templates. Thanks for the giveaway.

Jeanie said...

Great fabric bundle! I guess I love all of the different rulers.... a shape for everything.... a perfect length for whatever you are cutting, etc. Thanks so much for the great giveaway!

I can not live without my rotary cutter, that's for sure!
A great color combination of red, black and white; thanks for the giveaway!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Well thank you for this chance....I would not get by without my rotary cutter; I just use it for everything.
But there are a number of items I wouldn't want to be without!! I love the colors you chose.

Lisa Marie said...

In addition to the usual sewing notions I can't sew/live without my reading glasses! My over-40 eyes just aren't what they used to be!

nettie said...

WOW!!! there's so many I couldn't even begin to give you my favorite one.....I guess if you call this a sewing notion I would go with all the wonderful tutorials that is out here on the internet.. and the great and new ideas...thanks so much for the great give aways.....;o)

Michele said...

I wouldn't be happy without my Creative Grids rulers. They definitely make my cutting so much easier. Thanks for the chance to win.

Lorna McMahon said...

I am in the same sewing boat as Lisa Marie, but what I could not do without is my pointy tweezers. They sure help my fat fingers line up my pieces square to sew those seams. And the help me when it comes time to do some unsewing, too!

brownj6610 said...

I absolutely need my Machingers for free motion quilting. A close second would be a tiny scissors for snipping those errant threads.

JoyceLM said...

My ergonomic Olfa rotary cutter - the best thing ever. Thanks.

Tracy said...

I love my rotary cutter! It is so hard to just choose one favorite!

Tiffany said...

Hmm. Besides my rotary cutter and creative grids ruler, I really love my rag quilt shears. If you've ever made a rag quilt or anything like it, you will love this. Makes the whole process as easy as cutting through butter. :)

Sandra said...

I would have to say my assortment of rulers.

krisgray said...

Lovely giveaway - thanks for the chance! Aside from my rotary cutter, I've been using my 6.5" QID half square triangle square-up ruler A LOT lately.

Mom C said...

Mmmm hadn't thought about my glasses! But that's for everything, computer, reading, sewing, etc. Thank heavens for rotary cutters, mats and rulers! My DIL was telling me about a first time quilter who wanted to know if she could use pencil to draw the straight lines on her fabric and then scissor cut all her yardage for a quilt. I could hear Melissa's anguish as she begged the would be quilter to come to her house and she'd show her how to use the rotary cutter. Love straight, accurate cuts. Thanks.

Missy Shay said...

I think my rotary cutter and mat is my favorite, if I had to use scissors - everything would be crooked!

This notion is something I have a love-hate relationship with. Seam Ripper. As much as I don't like messing up, I do. I am so happy for seam ripper because it gives me second-chances (and third, fourth, ...)

Jane S. said...

My favorite sewing notion is my lighted seam ripper. Before I got it, I can't tell you the number of times I accidentally clipped fabric with my thread snips. Having that extra light really helps older eyes, too!

Thank you for the nice giveaway. That fabric is really cute! :)

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

My favorite notion is definitely Clover wonder clips for binding. They make it so much easier and I love not getting stabbed with pins.

Thanks!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite sewing notion is washable glue with a fine tip! Great for matching seams or basting binding

Lisa Marino said...

Like so many others, my rotary cutter and rulers!

Sherryl said...

Ha! Easy! My seam ripper!! Mine is old and beat up and could probably be sharper, but we've been through a lot together and I can't imagine ever giving her up.

Linda Nelson said...

Seam ripper hands-down!

Heartsdesire said...

I could not live without my seam ripper. Don't just use it for ripping out seams, but as a third finger when piecing fabric.

I love my little snips. They are the Fiskars 5-Inch Spring Action scissors. I have about 4 pair. One for my sewing machine, crochet, long-arm and my bag that I take hand quilting stuff in. I love them so much.

Cheri, the Quilting Nanny said...

I can do "without" most of the things they have today since I started sewing/quilting 50 years ago and all we had was thin straight pins, scissors and a ruler! We are all so spoiled today! But it is happily spoiled! I t hink back and can't believe I did what I did with what little I had to do it with! But I'd have to say my most favorite thing that I dont' want to have to think about living without is my rotary cutter and templates. Talk about a time saver!

Catskill Quilter said...

I have a pair of tiny scissors shaped like a stork that I use at the sewing machine to clip my threads. If I ever have to rip apart a seam, I use them to do that - and when I have to trim a piece of fabric while I am sewing, they are busy too. They are also my "go to" scissors for hand embroidery.

I love a good pair of scissors, almost any size, as long a they are left-handed! My favorite notion lately is a new SeamFix seam ripper with rubber ends. They work great for machine embroidery!
