I was lucky enough to be chosen to review a product recently and I duly received a package containing two rulers, Sew Easy 60 Degree Triangle and Sew Easy Half Diamond. Like most quilters I have more than one ruler but I have very few speciality rulers so was keen to see what I thought…

For a long time, I’ve wanted to do a triangle quilt so when the request went out to review some templates I was quick to volunteer.  I didn’t know what I was going to get but I was hopeful that there would be some triangles. The post arrived and I opened the envelope.  Inside were…

Hi all I was recently asked to review a notion kindly donated by EQS. This “Add-A-Quarter-Plus” ruler by CM Designs. Its packaging claims to “Simplify Foundation Piecing”. Well if you are anything like me, the thought of Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) scares the living “what-zit” out of me. Previous attempts at FPP have been awful and…

One of the thrills of being asked to review a product is that you’re never quite sure what will be coming in the post. The last thought that went through my mind was that I hoped it wasn’t a thimble! Now, don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against thimbles. I have need of them…
