From time to time I like to blog about some of my favorite quilting tools. Several months ago as part of my favorite tools series, I first mentioned using a wooden seam roller rather than finger pressing or ironing my seams. I was frustrated at the time because I couldn’t find a wholesale source for these so that I could sell them in my store.
Then I took a class from Deb Karasik who turned me onto the idea of using a wooden wallpaper roller as a pressing tool for paper piecing. Eureka! Not only does it do the job, but it is wider than my original tool which makes it easier to “seam press” regular blocks, too.
In fact, I will be showing how I used the wooden seam roller in my next DIY quilt tutorial tomorrow! So now I’m happy to say I have these tools available in my shop. And I’m even happier to say that I’ve decided to give one away to one lucky blog reader.
To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me what quilting project you are currently working on. You can even include a link to your blog in your comments if you want to share a picture of it!
On Friday around 5 PM Pacific Time, I will randomly select one winner from all of the comments posted. I will update this blog at that time to announce the winner (and will also contact him or her separately via email.) So good luck this week and happy pressing!
Updated – We have a winner!!!
First of all I want to share how much fun it was to read about what everyone was working on. Thank you all for your wonderful comments – I do read them all!
