One Last Thing About the AQS Quilt Show!

So far this week, I have blogged about the AWEsome Full Line Stencils & Pounce and the beautiful Quilts the Vendors had on display at the AQS Quilt show from last Saturday (August 13, 2016) in Grand Rapids Michigan..

I have one last post about the show.
I've had so much fun blogging about this topic, that I am sad to see it go..sniff sniff.. =(

Well... The show must go on, as "they" say..whoever "they" are.. haha

Today I'm posting about the "Stripology Ruler by Creative Grids and Gudrun Erla".

Of course, like everything else with me, there is a story.. haha

About 2 weeks ago I was at my table struggling to get a straight line on some fabric.. A frustrating scenario at times..
So I was having a tantrum over that (and yes, talking to myself), saying "What the heck!!? Why doesn't someone just invent a ruler that you can cut THROUGH!!!!????"

Imagine my surprise and awe when, upon arrival at the Quilt show, we ran right into a booth that had THAT exact item!
She was demonstrating it, and we were fixated..
She lined her fabric up.. put the ruler right over top and the cut, RIGHT through the ruler.. WHATTT!?
The bottom of it has grippers to help hold things still, but they aren't so grippy that you can't move ANYTHING.. A happy medium!
Check out the pictures to see it with your own eyes! ;)
 Above is Full shot of the ruler.. it goes from 0-20" across and 1-14" top to bottom.. You can cut through it from top to bottom.
 Every 1/2" there are openings to cut. There are also GREAT bold markings at the 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" increments.
I started playing with my ruler that very night! I just HAD to try out this new contraption!! It does take a little getting used to, but it is great. I feel much more confident that my roterary cutter wont veer off in any direction.. Purely it's own fault, of course.......

Now that I have all of these awesome tricks up my sleeves, I shouldn't have ANY problem creating all of the neat projects that are floating through my head!

I'm been working really hard trying to grow my followers, so I can make my blog what I really want it to be.. I want to make it interactive with giveaways and really connecting with people in different ways. 
Please help me by following my blog and sharing me with your friends!

Do YOU have any thing that you would like to see me make or things you'd like to see a post about!?

Thanks for taking the time to check me out!

Happy Scrappin and God Bless!
