Day 16 of 30 Giveaway #2 Ohhhh Yeah - Alicia's Attic

IHAN's 30 Days of Giveaways
Anniversary Celebration
Day 16 Giveaway #2

I use Qtools Cutting Edge Strips when I am cutting fabric.  I make fewer mistakes when cutting therefore I waste less fabric.
My 1/4 inch seams are easier to achieve with my Qtools Sewing Edge Strip attached to my sewing machine bed.

This is how the Qtools Cutting Edge Strips work:


See what I mean?  It makes rotary cutting easier, more accurate and less frustrating trying to find that line again and again.  The fabric stops at the edge of the fabric so I know exactly where it is not like a piece of painters tape.

This is how the Qtools Sewing Edge Strips work: 
Again, I have used painters tape but the QTools Sewing Edge Strip is thicker and allows me to sew with speed and precision   It aligns in front of the foot of the sewing machine for a perfect scant 1/4" seam. Another cool thing is that the strips are reusable and fit to the shape of the sewing machine.  Just think how much painters tape we will save....now you can paint your entire house!!!! Better yet....bring your painters tape to my house because it desperately needs paint in several rooms :)  And while you are at it....bring some brushes, rollers, pizzas, diet Pepsi, Tim Tams and a sleeping bag!!! 
Marci Baker of Alicia's Attic has a new book coming out this spring!!!  The title is
"ABC 3-D” which has Marci’s strip pieced method of “Not Your Grandmother’s Tumbling Blocks” and also combines the most popular patterns out of Sara Nephew’s “Big Book of Building Block Quilts” and some great new patterns!  If you want updates on Marci's latest and greatest you may want to check out her blog.  She also has some great video tutorials on her website too!!

Here are some other books Marci has written:

This is an e-mail I received from one of IHAN blog readers:
Hi Kelly
I Want To Win! Q-Tools cutting edge strips are one of my absolute favorite notions. They make rotary cutting so much faster and your strip width is consistent. They can also be used over and over and over again. Such a simple 'tool' with such great results!
Happy Anniversary,
Kathy Johnson
IHAN blog readers seem to be on top of all the latest and greatest!!!  LOL

Alicia's Attic sent 5 of each of the Qtools Cutting Edge Strips and 5 of the Qtools Sewing Edge Strips to be given to IHAN blog readers during this Anniversary Celebration.  One of each will be included in the Grand Prize Drawing.

Leave a comment telling us if you have used Qtools Cutting or Sewing Edge Strips and if not, why would you like to win them.  Four lucky IHAN blog readers will be drawn at random on April 15, 2010 after 10 PM CMT!!! 

Thank you Alicia's Attic for joining IHAN in our First Anniversary Celebration  by giving IHAN blog readers an opportunity to own some of your fantastic notions!!!

Kelly
