The Edge – Blog Hop

Hi friends!  I was excited to be invited to participate in this blog hop hosted by Pat Sloan – Thanks Pat!Edge Bloghop with Pat SloanI’ll tell you about the rulers, but first I thought I would share one of my first quilts.  This is a little 27″ square quilt that I made for Emmalie when she was a baby.  It was the perfect size for stroller time and a nursing cover too –

Emmalie's Baby QuiltYou can see, that I folded the fabric to the front to bind it.  At this point I had a large cutting mat, but only a small 6″ ruler for cutting strips…I had the hardest time getting straight strips!  I didn’t know any better, I’ve added a few rulers to my collection since, but the little one is still a favorite for crosscutting.  I had read enough to know that strip piecing was handy, especially with 1 1/2″ strips/squares, but I wasn’t about to take on anything larger than a baby quilt!  This little quilt is often used still for stuffed animals and baby dolls.

Do you have a favorite size ruler?

My favorite for general cutting is 6 1/2″ x 24″ – that way I only need one fold in my fabric.

Sullivans RulersThese Cutting Edge rulers are really neat.  They have a sharpening edge on one side, so as you cut, you also sharpen your blade on your rotary cutter!  (Why didn’t I think of that!)  It’s not as quiet as usual, but you know that you are keeping your rotary cutter straight, and sharpening your blade as you cut!  I think my favorite part – was the lack of slipping!  The ruler stayed where I needed it, with just one hand…instead of my entire arm.  Do you do that too?  It can be challenging to get a straight cut when it slips.  I’ve learned to make do with what I have, but not anymore!  Testing the ruler fun and a pleasure – Thanks again Pat!

You can read more about the rulers on Sullivan’s website, they are available for purchase in Pat’s shop, or I Have A Notion.

Finally, Pat asked that we share a recipe with you!  I have one dinner that is requested above all else – Alfredo with chicken and broccoli.  My kids all eat it, Joe and I enjoy it and there’s always left overs for lunch or another dinner if you play it right!

Alfredo with Broccoli & Chicken

Alfredo

2-3 broccoli crowns, just the florets
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
2 Cups milk
1/2 Cup parmesan cheese – I use the best quality possible, it makes a difference.
1/3 Cup ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 lb of pasta – fetticcine is traditional, I like to use mini-penne so I don’t have to cut it on the kids’ plates.
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into bite size chunks

To make the most of my time I have worked out my little system –

First – wash and cut the broccoli and get it steaming over medium heat.

Second – get water boiling for pasta (most pasta takes twice as long to cook here at altitude)

Third – cook the chicken in olive oil – be sure to season well – salt & pepper/garlic, or whatever you like.

Fourth – once the chicken is cooked through I transfer it to a large casserole dish with a lid and put it in the oven on warm. As other bits finish I add it to the dish! That way it doesn’t have to finish at the same time – that stresses me out.

Fifth – Start the sauce! Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, and cook it for a quick minute while stirring. Gradually add milk, whisking to blend. Cook for about 15 minutes or until it starts to thicken – you need to stir/whisk constantly. Next stir in your cheeses, salt and pepper, and cook until the cheeses melt. Taste, and remember it’s going over pasta, I usually add a touch more salt.

Usually while the sauce is cooking the broccoli and pasta finish, and I have added them to the dish in the oven. When the sauce has finished I pour it over the top and stir to combine! I love this dinner with a salad, but love that I already have veggies in the mix for my kiddos.

I hope you try it and enjoy it! Let me know what you think.

Just to be clear – You must leave a comment on all of the posts to be eligible to win the set of rulers.  I will update my post each day if you come back here to keep hopping!

Good Luck~

    How fun. I might be the first or the second depending how long I take in writing this :-) but boy is that recipe enticing. I love, love, love alfredo sauce. I also love new rulers! I think probably my 6 x 24 inch ruler is used the most but then comes the 6 x 12. I also have a 6 1/2 inch square ruler which I have mangaged to shave the edge off so it might be perfect timing for Cutting Edge rulers! Happy Blog Hopping Everyone!

  2. Gitte Andersen September 28, 2010 at 1:25 am

    These rulers sounds like a must-have. I hate when the ruler slips, its so difficult to hold it in place when cutting large strips.

  3. Teresa Felgueiras September 28, 2010 at 1:28 am

    Cool Stuf.A ruller like that is every quilter’s dream.

  4. Patty September 28, 2010 at 2:23 am

    This Blog Hop is a great idea – I just found you all and I put this event in my sidebar
    You definitely have some beautiful Blogs and talented people involved :)

  5. Mary Val September 28, 2010 at 2:28 am

    The non-slip feature would be excellent in addition to the sharpening. I go through some contortions to keep the plain jane ruler from slipping away from the cutting blade. Going to give the recipe a try, thanks!

  6. Sue Abrey September 28, 2010 at 2:57 am

    Those rulers look fantastic. I hope I’m eligible as I live in the UK.

    Your recipe sounds great and I will have to try that SOON!

  7. Colleen September 28, 2010 at 3:11 am

    Wow- I did not know that the rulers sharpened the rotary cutters blade every time you use it! Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Rose Hunter September 28, 2010 at 3:24 am

    My favorite ruler is also the 6.5 x 24. It seems it is the one I get the most use of. I could really use a ruler that does not slip. Your recipes look yummy.

  9. Stacey September 28, 2010 at 3:33 am

    super cute quilt, love the blog layout!! those rulers look and sound awesome!! thanks

  10. Vicki September 28, 2010 at 4:00 am

  18. Stephanie September 28, 2010 at 4:49 am

    Food on every blog and a chance to win some clever and great rulers. Great idea! My rulers are old and in sad shape. These look like a terrific addition to any quilter’s tool box.

  19. Nogysbaby September 28, 2010 at 4:52 am

    I’m new at the whole piece quilts I’m alittle nervous to even start I have pieces cut out but have yet to start. U inspire me to give it a try what can it hurt.

  20. PeachRainbow September 28, 2010 at 4:53 am

    Your first quilt looks lovely!
    I’d love to win, Thanks for the chance!

  21. Amy September 28, 2010 at 4:56 am

    It always tickles me to find another Amy in the quilting world! Love your first quilt! Such a happy one for a your daughter. I’m sure she treasures it.

    My current favorite ruler is one that is 24 x 8 1/2 inches. It can cross cut fabric in 6 1/2 squares, which comes in very handy.

  22. Debbie Gallett September 28, 2010 at 5:00 am

    I will definitely try that recipe, it sounds good. My favorite size rulers are the 6×24 and the 3×18 and the 6 inch square. Those are the ones I always have out.

  23. Crystal Knight September 28, 2010 at 5:00 am

    I would love to win one of the new rulers. My first quilt teacher explained all about rulers. I think my favorite is the 6 x 6. I can square my blocks up to the correct size and they don’t look so wonky. Receipe looks yummy.

  24. Janet September 28, 2010 at 5:02 am

    My favorite ruler is my 6.5 x 24. I need a new one and have been putting it off. I have sliced a little of my edge off in the middle. These rulers look awesome. Your alfredo recipe sound wonderful. I’m going to have to give it a try too.

  25. Wilma Eichler September 28, 2010 at 5:03 am

    I will definitely try that recipe. It sounds delicious. And I really do want those rulers!!!

  26. Becky M September 28, 2010 at 5:04 am

    Love that quilt, great colors! And the rulers look pretty awesome too!

  27. Judy Sullivan September 28, 2010 at 5:08 am

    Hi,
    Love your work. Just purchased your new book. Thanks for the recipes.

  28. Sally September 28, 2010 at 5:08 am

    I love my 6×24, but it does slip and I do curse at it occasionally! I can’t wait to try these new rulers, I tend to put off replacing my rotary blades and I don’t like my little sharpener unit – doesn’t seem very effective. And I *hate* actually changing the blades!
    Thanks for the recipe, we all need a new chicken recipe periodically don’t we?

  29. Robin Gregory September 28, 2010 at 5:18 am

    I’d love to win, Thanks for the chance!

  30. Susan September 28, 2010 at 5:19 am

    I love my 6X24 ruler too but i have used some shorter ones that I have come to appreciate too. Your quilt is cute and I love that it is still used and loved! My first quilt was an Irish Chain too!

  31. Wendy September 28, 2010 at 5:23 am

    I’m with you on only folding fabric once. Less chance of those wobbly strips. Thanks for the recipe- looks yummy :)

  32. Jennifer September 28, 2010 at 5:24 am

    What a pretty first quilt. Love the recipe as well

  33. Dana September 28, 2010 at 5:25 am

    Congratulations on your book, exciting news.
    Your first quilt is wonderful, I love the nice bright colors. My first quilt was given away as a gift, I know it’s still alive and well, but I really can’t remember much about it. I take lots of pictures now.

  34. LouAnn September 28, 2010 at 5:31 am

    I would just love the rulers! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  35. Maribeth Sala-Gietzen September 28, 2010 at 5:35 am

  38. susan galasso September 28, 2010 at 5:42 am

    Your recipe sounds delish – even though it’s only me and my husband at home now, we get the occasional weekend visit from our kids. I know they’d all love this. And I would really love a dual purpose ruler – one that doesn’t slip as I’m cutting, and sharpens my blade as i cut! perfect!

  43. Stephanie in Michigan September 28, 2010 at 5:49 am

    MMMM….that salad looks so good. I love fruit on salad, along with nuts and maybe some bleu cheese. I like it with a vinegarette dressing or poppy seed dressing. You’re making me hungry! Thanks for sharing!

  44. Diane Myers September 28, 2010 at 5:51 am

    Love your first quilt. When I started quilting I wanted complicated looking quilts. I’ve since learned simple is better and FINISHED is best!

    Diane

  45. Steffi September 28, 2010 at 5:52 am

    These rulers seem to be really great! Would love to have them, because I don´t have a lot of rulers.
    Love your Ninepatch Quilt! It´s really cute!

  46. Sue Bennett September 28, 2010 at 5:52 am

    the ruler sounds amazing.

  47. autumn frymark September 28, 2010 at 5:53 am

    I only have a couple of rulers as I’m fairly new to quilting so I haven’t found that favorite size yet.

  48. shellie September 28, 2010 at 5:54 am

    I really adore your baby quilt. The colors are amazing. Maybe it is that I love yellow.
    The recipes are a fun touch. You all are doing a great job in making this hop fun.

  49. Willa September 28, 2010 at 5:55 am

    Please include me! The rulers are so clever.

    Thanks.

    Can’t wait to try your recipe.

  50. Sally K September 28, 2010 at 5:55 am

  51. Karen G September 28, 2010 at 5:56 am

    Glad to see you joining with Pat!!! I love your blog!

  52. JayTee September 28, 2010 at 5:57 am

    love the brocolli recipe. I think rulers that sharpening rotary blades would be a great tool to own. I hope i win!!

  53. Jacqui VMS September 28, 2010 at 5:57 am

    Looks like a great recipe to try and LOVE your first little quilt…so cheerful!

    My favourite ruler is my 8 1/2″ x 24″ ruler….seriously LOVE that one even for cutting 1 1/2″ strips.

    Jacqui in Canada

  54. deborah September 28, 2010 at 5:59 am

    No slip and a sharpening edge? Genius, pure genius!
    My favorite ruler is the 6 1/2″ x 24″ too..so versatile.

  55. deborah September 28, 2010 at 6:00 am

  56. michele September 28, 2010 at 6:01 am

    The ruler I use most often is a 6.5 X 24.

  57. Shawntel Parker September 28, 2010 at 6:01 am

    Great recipe! My husband is a def. pasta lover so I’m going to put this on my menu in the next couple of weeks to try. Thanks for taking part in this blog hop/give away. Your “first quilt” is just adorable. I love all the bright, happy colors!

  58. Sue September 28, 2010 at 6:02 am

    Thanks for sharing your first quilt and the recipe. Sounds good, I’ll be trying it.

  59. Linda P. September 28, 2010 at 6:05 am

    I think your first quilt is precious. My first quilt was teeny tiny log cabin – with the idea that we would learn precision also. But my first bed quilt was an Irish Chain – it’s a great pattern! Your recipe sounds yummy and yes, I will try it. I like the penne pasta also, but don’t have any little ones to cut any ways. Thanks, Amy!!

  60. deb September 28, 2010 at 6:09 am

    ohhhh, so nice I would love a set of these rulers!

  61. Anita September 28, 2010 at 6:09 am

    For a first quilt I think you did a great job. My first one looked terrible. Teh ruler I uses most is 60 x 15 cm.

  62. Britt September 28, 2010 at 6:10 am

    I like square rulers and really long rulers

  63. Sarah Vee September 28, 2010 at 6:12 am

    Thanks for the recipe, Amy. I loved seeing your first quilt and the ‘short’ ruler story. These new rulers *sound* fabulous. You’re the second one to comment on the sound. The no slip would be great – especially when you get to the very end of that 24 inch strip and then there’s the little wobble that ruins the cut! Thanks for participating in Pat’s hop! HOPe to win!!

  64. Anita September 28, 2010 at 6:13 am

    For a first quilt I think you did a great job. My first one looked terribel. The ruler I use most is 60 x 15 cm.

  65. dawn September 28, 2010 at 6:13 am

    My favorite size ruler is 8 1/2″ x 24″. I went to the extra width to help with slipping (more surface area). I can’t wait to try one of these rulers. I hope I’m the winner. hehe.

    Sound like a good recipe to try. Thanks for the preparations advice.

  66. rebecca September 28, 2010 at 6:15 am

    Fun new rulers with a great feature!! Love the recipe!

  67. Ruthie September 28, 2010 at 6:18 am

    I love your first quilt and can’t wait to try your recipe.

  68. Nancy B from Many LA September 28, 2010 at 6:18 am

    I’d love to win – I need all the help I can get ! LOL!

  69. Melinda September 28, 2010 at 6:19 am

    These rulers sound so neat! Such a simple idea that really makes sense!

  70. Karin September 28, 2010 at 6:19 am

    Love that little quilt! It’s darling! I don’t have a favorite ruler yet. The one I use the most is 5″x18″ and I am hoping to get a larger one soon. Thank you for the recipe. That sounds like something my family would love!

  71. Shirley in Canada September 28, 2010 at 6:21 am

    My favorite ruler has to be my 3″ x 18″, with the 6″ x 24″ running a close second. A beautiful little quilt you made…love the colors!

  72. Linda September 28, 2010 at 6:27 am

    Yummy! your recipes sound good I’ll have to try them.

  73. cyndi hoeller September 28, 2010 at 6:27 am

  76. dolores fegan September 28, 2010 at 6:29 am

    The chicken broccoli recipe use to be a favorite when my sons were little, alas my daughter is allergic to the dairy and me to the wheat. Still it is very yummy.
    Thanks for sharing your first quilt. It helps to see that not everyone knows what they were doing when they started out. :0)

  77. Misty September 28, 2010 at 6:29 am

    what a cute quilt! and the recipe sounds great.

  78. Mary Ann September 28, 2010 at 6:29 am

    My favorite ruler is the 6 1/2 X 12 1/2 although the 24in runs a close second! I think the rulers sound so cool, why is it we keep use dull blades whne it makes the job so much easier to have a sharp edge?

  79. Kathy September 28, 2010 at 6:36 am

    Thats a cute first quilt – mine was a Quilt in a Day, long worn out!

  80. Laura September 28, 2010 at 6:36 am

  81. Debi September 28, 2010 at 6:39 am

    Thank you for the recipie, I think my family would enjoy that. Looking forward to getting one of those rulers. My favorite ruler is 6″ X 6″.

  82. Jocelyn September 28, 2010 at 6:41 am

    Wow Amy the recipe looks great! Thanks for participating in the blog hop :-)

  83. Judy in MI September 28, 2010 at 6:42 am

    Your first quilt is a beauty – nothing to be ashamed of – you certainly began with the knack!! Recipe is great too – looks like I have a plan for dinner tonight. Thanks for the opportunity to win those awesome rulers!

  84. Debi September 28, 2010 at 6:42 am

    My favorite ruler is 6″ X 6″, but these rulers sound like they would be a great buy.

  99. Jamie September 28, 2010 at 6:59 am

    I have a 6×18 inch ruler that I have borrowed from a Grandma and I love it. It has little grippers on it so it doesn’t move! It would be nice to have my own rulers to use so I’m really excited about this. And that recipe looks delicious!

  100. Linda September 28, 2010 at 7:01 am

    Wow–I am really excited to try the new rulers—my favorite size ruler is the little six inch square one—how would we get by without them….I will try your recipe–sounds so good….

  101. Jennifer September 28, 2010 at 7:01 am

    Love that little quilt … so cheerful! I just have a couple rulers, but my most helpful is my 6″x24″ … though sometimes I wish it were even longer LOL! Thanks for the recipe, too … sounds delish … and love that salad, it’s one of my faves!

    Your recipe sounds delicious! My kids aren’t big veggie lovers but add some Alfredo sauce and they gobble it right up :)

  108. Gloria J W September 28, 2010 at 7:15 am

    I think my favourite ruler is the 6.5 x 24m but then again I do have a soft spot for a little 4 x 4. The rulers look great, thanks for the giveaway.
    Cheers Gloria

  109. Diane September 28, 2010 at 7:16 am

    What a cute baby quilt!! So nice that it’s still being enjoyed today by little ones.

    My favorite ruler is 6″ x 24″ (or is it 18″?) Not too big to take to classes.

    Thank you for participating in the blog hop!

  110. Zlaty September 28, 2010 at 7:18 am

    What a fantastic giveaway! Please count me in! I would love to win that set of rulers! Thank you for hosting it!

  111. Betty September 28, 2010 at 7:22 am

    My favorite size ruler is 5 x 24, but would love 6 1/2 x 24. Guess I didn’t know they made that size. Your receipe sounds wonderful.

  112. Mickey / harleywife57 September 28, 2010 at 7:25 am

    Wow ; rulers that sharpen as you cut AND dinner recipes ! Your salad looks so good ! this is fun ! thanks for the chance to win and participation !

  113. nancy fowler September 28, 2010 at 7:26 am

    The recipe looks and sounds delish. May try it this week. We love pasta anyway. Thanks. Happy Quilting!

  114. Cassy September 28, 2010 at 7:28 am

    Don’t feel bad about your turned over binding. My first binding was a stripped piece tube! Oh my goodness! This is one time I am sooo happy, my computer crashed and lost those pics! hee hee.

    What a wonderful quilt anyways. Thanks for the recipes. I know what’s for dinner tonight. :-)

  115. SuzK September 28, 2010 at 7:28 am

    I love your first quilt, it’s so sweet. Thanks for sharing a recipe for one of my favorite dishes!

  116. Susannah September 28, 2010 at 7:30 am

    Love the baby quilt! Will try the recipe tonight… Thank you so much.

  117. Jen September 28, 2010 at 7:32 am

    Thanks for the recipe. I will have to give it a try!

  118. Shelley C September 28, 2010 at 7:32 am

    Well, I’ve not found the right alfredo recipe yet, but this one with the ricotta might make all the difference! I find mine a bit dry and just not very flavorful…I think the ricotta must add to the moistness of the dish. As soon as I think to buy broccoli, I’m giving this recipe a try! Thanks.
    Don’t the rulers sound like a great idea! Sharpening our blade every time we use it? That will certainly appeal to quilters who go through too many of those blades in my opinion.
    thanks for the opportunity.

  119. Miss Sherry September 28, 2010 at 7:33 am

    The spinich salad and strawberries look fabulous- perhaps I should eat my yogurt breakfast…… can’t have too many rulers right?

  120. Freda Henderson September 28, 2010 at 7:33 am

    Thanks for the recipe. I believe we will have that for supper.

  121. Traci Kienberger September 28, 2010 at 7:33 am

    Thank You for the recipe. I was wondering what to have for dinner tonight… I would love to have a set of the sharpening ruler’s..
    Thank you for the giveaway.

  122. BlondiKnits September 28, 2010 at 7:37 am

    Your little “first” quilt is darling. Hope you save it for a future granddaughter (it will happen sooner than you think possible!)

  123. Patricia September 28, 2010 at 7:41 am

    That looks like a yummy recipe…I’ll have to try it! Thanks for the chance to win a set of rulers, too!

  124. Robyn of Coffee and Cotton September 28, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Mmmm yummy recipes.
    My favorite…wait…my ONLY rotary able ruler is my 6 x 24 :)

  125. Jane Z September 28, 2010 at 7:48 am

    Thanks for the recipe! It sounds yummy and ‘kid friendly’.

  126. Donna September 28, 2010 at 7:49 am

    Self-sharpening rulers are such a great idea! Would love to win them and try them out! And, I’ll have to try your Brocoli/Chicken recipe–I think my family would enjoy it!

  127. Wendy Tulloch September 28, 2010 at 7:52 am

    Your recipe sounds awesome and I really like your “first quilt” so bright and cheerful. Thanks for the chance to win the rulers.

    Wendy

  128. Christina September 28, 2010 at 7:54 am

    My rulers always slip. That is my biggest problem. Nice to know there are rulers that can help with that.

  129. Anonymous September 28, 2010 at 7:58 am

    I would love the chicken and broccoli dish, but hubby is so picky I don’t think he would eat it, you know the type meat and potatos man..and corn….Your first quilt is cute, mine was a disaster..I can’t believe how many people still have their first quilt…mine is long gone.

  130. Andrea September 28, 2010 at 7:59 am

    Thanks for the recipe! I love broccoli!

  131. Lil September 28, 2010 at 8:00 am

    the more I see these rulers the more I wanna have them
    thanks for everything

  132. Kristy T September 28, 2010 at 8:03 am

    These rulers are great! No more slipping and sliding, now that I could handle!

  133. Julie September 28, 2010 at 8:04 am

    the rulers look amazing

  134. krisgray September 28, 2010 at 8:04 am

    I have a guild meeting tonite – I think this recipe is perfect for dinner.

  135. polly columbus September 28, 2010 at 8:06 am

    I am going to try the recipe this week. Sounds wonderful! Thanks! And also thanks for the chance to win the givaway!

  136. Debbie September 28, 2010 at 8:09 am

    I sure would love all of those rulers. The sharpening is a great bonus. The ruler that I use the most is the 6 x 12. Small enough to handle comfortably and big enough to cut most sizes.

  137. Kyle September 28, 2010 at 8:10 am

    Please enter me in the chance to win these great rulers. I’m anxious to give them a try. I enjoyed your blog.

  138. sharon jones September 28, 2010 at 8:16 am

    The rulers are an incredible device. I hate having to spend the extra money on new blades for my cutters–cuts into the money squirlled away for fabric! Also the fact that they do not slip is amazing! I would love to win them! Thanks for hosting this give away, Sharonj.

  139. Kare in OH September 28, 2010 at 8:16 am

    my current rulers have seen better days as they’ve been used so much that the markings are worn off, and lets not even bring up the 6×24 ruler that was snapped in half while inside my suitcase . . .

  140. Kathie Bugbee September 28, 2010 at 8:17 am

    I wou;d love some new rulers:)

  141. Cindy b September 28, 2010 at 8:17 am

    Thanks for the recipe.

  142. Deserae Fiedler September 28, 2010 at 8:18 am

  143. Karen In Tucson September 28, 2010 at 8:19 am

    Amy, Thank you for sharing your cute little quilt. It is most definitely the right size for lots of things and so cheery. Our firsts are always interesting down the years. Quilting has changed so much for the better! Am really looking forward to trying your recipe.

  144. lynn September 28, 2010 at 8:20 am

    I am really enjoying the online blog hop! I’m finding such wonderful new blogs to follow.

    The rulers look terrific.

  145. Cindy Bars September 28, 2010 at 8:22 am

    I would love to win the rulers. Thank you.

  146. Vicki Quilternp September 28, 2010 at 8:23 am

    thanks for the blog hop participation
    that recipe looks fantastic I have copied and emailed to myself

  147. Julia September 28, 2010 at 8:26 am

    Love seeing your quilts. Would love to win the new rulers.

  148. Sheila S September 28, 2010 at 8:29 am

    Hi Amy,
    I actually thought your first blanket was cute and loved the pasta recipe. It actually doesn’t look like it has as much fat as most recipes. It’s a must try! Hope I win the rulers. I really-really-really need them!

  149. Francine A Warren September 28, 2010 at 8:31 am

    I am always so amazed when I see such small squares. I’m still trying to conquer 4″ ones. Lol. I am going to work on a stip pieced quilt with 2 1/2 ” squares soon! AS to my favorite ruler- the first one I could afford was a 6″ x 12″ & I was in heaven as I has been trying to cut & measure by either using a tape measure or making a template- somehow the squares were never right that way. Right now I love a small ruler 1″ x 12″ I using it to square off blocks, but I do it sitting down with a lap mat. Works really well. Happy Blog Hop! Thnaks for sharing!

  150. Lynda M September 28, 2010 at 8:31 am

    Thanks so much for hosting the hop. This is my first. Love your recipe and have copied it down.
    I would love the rulers. My rulers are very slippery. I always have a little uneven cutting going on. I enjoyed your blog and will visit often.
    Thanks again,

  151. Texana September 28, 2010 at 8:32 am

    Wow! a tasty-soubding recipe AND a chance to win those amazing rulers! Thanks!

  152. Maryellen September 28, 2010 at 8:35 am

    Cute quilt, love the ideas on the rulers (and the non-slip!) and the recipe sounds delish. I make something similar, but like the idea of ricotta instead of cream. Wonder if it’s less fat? Hmm, have to try it. Thanks.

  153. Tove September 28, 2010 at 8:38 am

    I missed this yesterday, oh well i will post today. nice yummy looking dinner and I love the idea behind these rules, Emmalies quilt is really nice.

  154. Jackie Hicks September 28, 2010 at 8:40 am

    enjouyed your blog and the story of your first quilt – brought back great memories of the first quilts I made with my aunts – it was a small doll quilts string pieced from their flower sack scrapes – I sill have it today (45 year later).

  155. Carmen September 28, 2010 at 8:43 am

    We love Alfredo sauce at this house! It makes everything taste better. Love the new rulers. Can’t wait to get one, or more!

  156. Caryl W September 28, 2010 at 8:43 am

    The ruler I use the most is 6 1/2 x 12 but I would like to get a 6 1/2 x 24 for just one fold in the fabric…sounds great!! The alfredo recipe sounds really yummy…will try it!!

  157. Virginia September 28, 2010 at 8:45 am

    What could be better together – quilting with new rulers and new recipes. Just add chocolate and you have a match made in heaven.

  158. Moneik Stephens September 28, 2010 at 8:45 am

    My favorite ruler is the 6.5×12.5, but I have a lot of favorites. I believe there is a right one for every job, so I keep plenty of different sizes on hand.

  159. Virginia September 28, 2010 at 8:45 am

    Can’t wait to try these new rulers.

  161. Virginia September 28, 2010 at 8:47 am

    OK – something happened while trying to post my comment. Forget all the weird symbols. I was just trying to say I love the recipes and the new rulers. Just add chocolate and it would be beyond perfect.

  162. Mary on Lake Pulaski September 28, 2010 at 8:48 am

    I always love a new idea for a ruler and can’t wait to get one that doesn’t slip. The recipe sounds great Amy!

  163. Sandie ~call me crazy September 28, 2010 at 8:49 am

    Cute first quilt! Love the idea of the rulers! And you’ve made me hungry~LOL. :-) Thanks for the fun!

  164. Sandy K September 28, 2010 at 8:49 am

    Great set of rulers…would love to win them!

  165. Sue Hojnacki September 28, 2010 at 8:51 am

    These rulers look amazing would love to win a set!!

  166. Györgyi Varga September 28, 2010 at 8:51 am

    Hi Amy! I enjoy your blog and pictures. I’m so glad that Pat’s Blog Hop help me to find your site! Have a nice day! Györgyi

  167. Sandy S September 28, 2010 at 8:53 am

    I thought your first quilt was cute, my favorite ruler is the 6.5 X 24, use this alot.

  168. Louise K. September 28, 2010 at 8:55 am

    Your first quilt is charming, and I’m sure it’s treasured! I started quilting in the age of cardboard templates. My first projects had 5/8 inch seams, cuz I didn’t know any better!
    Thank you for the recipe…it’s looks good!

  169. Tressa September 28, 2010 at 8:55 am

    Your first quilt is so colorful and bright. I love it and the recipe sounds great. My girls love a good white sauce recipe.

  170. Winona September 28, 2010 at 8:56 am

    That recipe looks delicious. I think my husband would even eat it. LOL I started out doing my bindings by wrapping around from the back too. Your little first quilt is pretty and well loved. I hope I win the rulers, but who doesn’t? LOL Winona

  171. Louise K. September 28, 2010 at 8:56 am

    Your first quilt is charming, and I’m sure it’s treasured! I started quilting in the age of cardboard templates. My first projects had 5/8 inch seams, cuz I didn’t know any better!
    Thank you for the recipe…it’s looks good!

  172. Vickie September 28, 2010 at 8:56 am

    I think your first quilt is pretty darn cute -a lot more anbitious than most firt ones. The casserole looks great too-just right for cooler weather. Thanks for the blog!

  173. Cheri September 28, 2010 at 8:57 am

    I so need a new long ruler. Mine has fallen a few times from my cutting table. Love the dinner recipe.

  174. Kathy September 28, 2010 at 8:57 am

    Thanks for the great recipe!

    My favorite ruler is the 6 x 24. I can cut most things with it. I also use my 15″ square ruler a lot – sometimes as a portable table to lay my quilt blocks on to move them to the sewing machine.

    Kathy

  175. sndy1 September 28, 2010 at 8:58 am

    Great shop hop!

  176. Cory September 28, 2010 at 9:01 am

    My favorite ruler is the 6×12. It is versatile and easy to move around and long enough for most cuts except the WOF cuts. Thank you for this fun Hop. Take care and God bless, Cory

  177. Busymom September 28, 2010 at 9:02 am

    I am here for day two of the this great giveaway. My favorite ruler is 61/2″ x 12″, because I tend to be cutting small pieces of fabric. I am copying the recipe and just might make it tonight, it sounds delicious!

  178. Michelle Wyman September 28, 2010 at 9:11 am

    Your recipe sounds divine! I am excited to try these new rulers!

  179. Ann September 28, 2010 at 9:13 am

    Great post. I have a similar broccoli pasta with a light tomato sauce. Instead of steaming the broccoli, it gets thrown in with the penne to boil for the last 3 minutes of cooking. Saves one more pot.

  180. Garilyn September 28, 2010 at 9:13 am

    The rulers sound wonderful!
    The recipe does too, but I’m afraid me and only 2 of my kids would eat it…that’s half of us. The others would either go without or I’d have to make something else…ah, the joys of motherhood and a picky husband!

  181. Melissa September 28, 2010 at 9:14 am

    Thanks for sharing one of your first quilts! Isn’t it so funny to think back on the silly things we did when we were first learning to quilt? I hand wound my bobbin because I didn’t know that there was a way to wind it on my machine!!! LOL We’ve come a long way baby!

  182. Tina Gordon September 28, 2010 at 9:17 am

    My favorite ruler is still the first one I ever got. A 5×18 ruler that I can use for almost anything. Those rulers that sharpen sound great!

  183. Sequana September 28, 2010 at 9:18 am

    Well, you have my admiration. Making Irish Chain blocks is NOT one of my favorite things. *S* Or maybe you never did that after the first time.

  184. Jodie September 28, 2010 at 9:18 am

    Wow! Great giveaway – those rulers look amazing!

  185. Marg September 28, 2010 at 9:21 am

    My favorite ruler for cutting strips is the 6″ x 24″ but I have been wanting to buy an 8 1/2″ x 24″ lately and haven’t done it yet. Hopefully I’ll win this whole lovely set of rulers!!! They look amazing!

  186. Stephanie D September 28, 2010 at 9:34 am

    Such a cheerful, pretty little quilt!

  187. Patti Adams September 28, 2010 at 9:37 am

    First quilts, food and a great prize!!! What a great, fun Hop!! Alfredo with Broccoli & Chicken for dinner tonight!! YUMMY!!

  188. Jan September 28, 2010 at 9:38 am

    Thanks for the yummy recipe and the chance to with the rulers. I must say, the binding idea was very creative, and it worked.

  189. Lovie Ball September 28, 2010 at 9:44 am

    Not sure I would show my first quilt, wonky does not describe it. LOL Would love a set of the new rulers.

  190. SewCalGal September 28, 2010 at 9:49 am

    I have to admit, I do not have a Sullivan ruler. Would love to try them out. I especially like the “no slip” part. Thanks for sharing your insights Amy. And the yummy recipe.

  194. Susan McKey September 28, 2010 at 9:55 am

    This is so much fun, this blog-hopping. I love seeing everyone’s “first quilts”. As I commented over at IHAN, we learn so much from where we’ve come. And thanks for the Alfredo…dinner tonight is solved! Best, always…

  195. Cathy A September 28, 2010 at 9:56 am

    Thanks for the recipe! It looks like something my kids might all eat!
    The rulers look great, too–especially if they don’t slip!

  196. cori September 28, 2010 at 10:01 am

    I am trying your recipe. Just picked broccoli from the garden. This blog hop Fall=o=ween is fun.

  197. Lee Ann L. September 28, 2010 at 10:02 am

    cute little quilt!

  198. Ann in NC September 28, 2010 at 10:03 am

    Fun blog! Thanks for sharing the recipe… now I am hungry!

  199. Amy Jackson September 28, 2010 at 10:04 am

    I can’t wait to get a ruler like this! 6 1/2″ x 24″ is also my favorite size.

    Hugs,
    Amy in KY

  200. Leslie Sorenson September 28, 2010 at 10:05 am

    The recipe looks yummy. I’ll have to substitute for the broccoli. My DH has broccoliphobia. Cool rulers. Would love to win.

  201. Jill September 28, 2010 at 10:06 am

    Thanks for the chance to win those rulers. The sound fabulous! The recipe looks really good. May actually have to cook this one.

  202. Sandi September 28, 2010 at 10:09 am

    These rulers sound awesome. Hoping to win but ready to buy if I don’t. :-) Your broccoli chicken dish looks yummy. I make a similar dish and add slivered almonds to it. I’m going to have to make this as I love chicken and broccoli.

  203. Anonymous September 28, 2010 at 10:09 am

    These rulers are ideal for a beginner quilter like myself. And your recipe sounds perfect for my son. He loves this stuff but I have never made it homemade. Thanks so much!

  204. Scrapycandy September 28, 2010 at 10:12 am

  205. robin September 28, 2010 at 10:18 am

    I would love to win those rulers! You asked about a favorite size? Well, I have ONE ruler, and it is an Omnigrid 3×18. I taped 3 little pieces of sandpaper on the back to keep it from slipping and it seems to help. I REALLY need those rulers. And the recipe looks yummy!

    Thanks!

    robin

  206. Marcia Gilbreath September 28, 2010 at 10:20 am

    Self-binding is still perfectly acceptable! Maybe not in a show, but for a quick gift that will be well-used. Chicken Alfredo is one of my go-to recipes, too. No broccoli, though–I don’t care for it. Thanks for the recipe!

  207. Anett September 28, 2010 at 10:26 am

    I love the quilt…what great colors. Also will be making the recipe for my husband…he loves broccoli.

    Thanks,

    Anett

  208. Amy Roth September 28, 2010 at 10:30 am

    I would never still be quilting if I had to do it all with templates. And rulers that sharpen at the same time? Genius! Thanks for the giveaway!

  209. judith hogan September 28, 2010 at 10:35 am

    Love the recipe. I was thinking of some kind of chicken recipe for tonight. Now I have one. Thanks for the chance to win the rulers. I love the idea of the blog hop.

  210. Kathy MacKie September 28, 2010 at 10:50 am

    I along with everyone else would find the rulers very useful. My favourite ruler size is the 6 1/2″ by 24″. I will definitely try the chicken recipe. Well off I must go to play in my sewing room.

  211. thunder kaplan September 28, 2010 at 10:52 am

    I love these rulers, recipe looks good too. thanks

  212. Patty September 28, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Thanks for sharing in the giveway. I will have to try your chicken alfredo receipe, but without the broccoli – I don’t like broccoli. Your story was interesting about your first quilt. I have learned a lot over the years and sometimes wonder why I ever stuck with making quilts, but now I am so glad I did! My favorite is a 6 1/2″ x 24″ too. I use it all the time!

  213. blop September 28, 2010 at 10:56 am

    Love that recipe…a fav of the family!! Looking forward to checking out these rulers/

  214. janice Brooks September 28, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Really nice post! Your recipe sounds great so I’ll just have to try it of course! Don’t those rulers sound awesome? Can’t wait to try them!

  217. Linda September 28, 2010 at 11:04 am

    Recipe sounds great. I love the hints in the instructions! I’m getting more excited about the rulers each day!

  218. Kristi Van Os September 28, 2010 at 11:04 am

    Those rulers sound really neat. Your recipe looks pretty easy too. I always cheat and use jar Alfredo and add mushrooms too. I’ll have to try it your way :)

  219. Cindy September 28, 2010 at 11:07 am

    Thanks for the recipe. I’m intrigued by the rulers!

  220. Busty LaRue September 28, 2010 at 11:09 am

    All of these recipes are making me so hungry, and lose my dieting will power! Love your first quilt. :)

  222. Kay September 28, 2010 at 11:11 am

    Can’t wait to try those rulers. It would be so much better for my hands & arms if I didn’t have to put so much pressure on the rulers so they don’t slip. Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it.

  223. Brigitte Baierl September 28, 2010 at 11:13 am

    to win this fantastic set of clever Rulers would be GREAT!
    Never ever a blunt cutter. I’ld do a lucky dancing here in Germany – greetings from Brigitte

  224. Mary Ellen Honan September 28, 2010 at 11:14 am

    Weren’t you the lucky one to try the new rulers. Thank you for the recipe. Just have to defrost the chicken. Have added your site to my favorites.

  225. Deb Fox-McHugh September 28, 2010 at 11:28 am

    The recipe sounds yummy! I will definitely try that-my kids will love it.

  226. Julia P September 28, 2010 at 11:34 am

    Thanks for great giveaway. Love reading the blogs

  227. Chris September 28, 2010 at 11:38 am

    I can’t believe someone hasn’t thought of this before. Genius! Can’t wait to try them.

  228. Linda in Calif. September 28, 2010 at 11:44 am

    I think these rulers are so great. I hope to win. In the meanwhile your recipe looks so good. Thanks for posting it.

  229. lisa September 28, 2010 at 11:46 am

    thanks for the dinner idea, I need new inspirations. I LOVE the colors of your first quilt! I am so glad you were on this blog hop, I had to reset my computer, so I lost all my “favorites” so I looked for you but it took a while!

  230. Beverly Atkins September 28, 2010 at 11:46 am

    OHMY! Your recipe sounds delicious. I’m trying that one for sure. This blog is so much fun and the rulers are a great giveaway! Thanks for a chance.

  231. Beth September 28, 2010 at 11:49 am

    I use my 3.5×18″ ruler alot! What a fabulous giveaway. I can’t believe it sharpens blades while you cut…brilliant!

  232. Marianne September 28, 2010 at 11:57 am

    What a clever idea! I’d love to try a ruler that sharpens the blade.

  233. Britney September 28, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    Yay! Loving the bloghop. Can’t wait to try the recipe, I’m sure the kiddos will love it.

  234. Kathie L September 28, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    So glad the word is getting out about what looks like a great product. I hope my local shop decides to carry it. Kathie L in Allentown

  235. ~Michelle~ September 28, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    You haven’t noticed any rotary cutter shavings from the rulers, have you? And BTW, the 16.5″ square size is genius!

  236. Judy September 28, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    Enjoyed your blog. The rulers look great!

  237. Betsy Lynn September 28, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    I love my 4X14 and my 2 1/2X6 1/2inch rulers, use both a lot.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  238. Hannele September 28, 2010 at 12:19 pm

    MArvellous giveaway, who wouldn’t like to win it ;)

  239. Laurie September 28, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    You’re first quilt has held up well. My first quilt was “stolen” by my GREAT niece who loves sleeping with it. I need to get a photo of it :)

  240. Monica September 28, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    I can’t wait to try these rulers out!

  241. Patty September 28, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    I love my 6 X 24″ ruler too, but I really love my 8 1/2 by 24″ ruler the best.

  242. Erica September 28, 2010 at 1:01 pm

    I would love to have a ruler that doesn’t slip! I’m pretty new to quilting and only have one ruler, it’s 12″x4″ and it’s hard to get straight cuts when you have to fold your fabric several times.

  243. Judy September 28, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    Hi Amy My favorite size ruler is also the 61/2″x 24″. That is
    the one that would do the most sharpening in my quilt world!
    Your first quilt looks alot like my first 10 or so, as I didn’t
    dare venture to anything more difficult. Your chicken alfredo
    will be tried at our house. thanks

  244. Robin Crittenden September 28, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    what a cute quilt. And the recipe looks really yummy!

  245. Brittainy Barnes September 28, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    Thanks for the chance for a giveaway!! Excited to start some new quilts soon, these would sure help!

  246. Jen September 28, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    Thanks for sharing! The recipe sounds good, but that salad looks delicious!

  247. Linda September 28, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    my favorite rule is 6 x 12, so much easier to control than a longer one and it is easy to take along too.

  248. Kathy Feltmate September 28, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    Love your blog, and the recipe sounds like I am going to try it!
    Thanks.

  249. Kathleen C September 28, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    The ricotta cheese sounds like the perfect addition to your alfredo recipe; I can taste it now.
    A whole set of special rulers? This would be a treat to win. Thanks for participating in this Blog Giveaway with Pat Sloan.

  250. Pammer September 28, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    Brilliant Rulers! And I love that colorful quilt!

  251. Linda September 28, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter the giveaway. The recipe looks absolutely delish!

  252. Mary Beth September 28, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    Recipe looks great!

  253. Jill September 28, 2010 at 2:16 pm

    Dinner sounds yummy! Please put me in the drawing

  254. mary September 28, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    my favorite ruler is the 6 x 24. I love being able to cut an entire width of fabric without folding. But I have a smaller one that I keep bymachine with a small mat for the quick cuts while i’m sewing. I am not in sewing room, but I think it may be 6 x 10?

    Thanks for the recipe. It is my husbands favorite meal and I don’t have a good recipe. He orders it out ususally

  255. Sandy N. September 28, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    That recipe looks yummy! I may have to give that a go this week. If I can get my lazy behind to the grocery store for supplies!=)Those rulers look pretty awesome! My favorite ruler has always been my 12×12. It was the very first ruler I ever bought and it seems to be the one that gets used the most.

  256. Sharrieboberry September 28, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    The rulers look and “sound” wonderful. I do not like it that rotary blades are rather pricey and anything to extend the life of them sounds AWESOME!

    My 14-yr-old doesn’t care much for salads, but she does like spinach and strawberries. Yum! Yours looks yummy!

  257. Donna September 28, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    This blog hopping is dangerous to my waist line. I had plans for pumpkin bread when I discovered apple pie made like a pizza and now Alfredo with broccoli and chicken. Perhaps if I add a salad it will all be good. This blog hopping is fun. Happy quilting and blogging!

  258. Joan September 28, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    My favorite ruler is the 6″ x 12″–I can do most things with it, have other sizes too, but find this is the one I use most. Thanks for sharing the Chicken and Broccoli recipe, I copied it to my recipe file and will try it soon. Joan

  259. Donna September 28, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    My favorite ruler is the trusty 6.5 x 24 also. Happy blog hopping.

  260. Becky in Georgia September 28, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    Thanks, Amy for the review on the rulers! I love the concept. Interesting that the sound of cutting fabric is different. Thanks, too for sharing your first quilt. Glad it’s still being loved. Take care!

  261. Becky in Georgia September 28, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Thanks Amy for sharing the review on the new rulers! Interesting that the sound of cutting fabric is different with these rulers! Thanks too for sharing your first quilt and the recipe. Take care!

  262. John'aLee Burk September 28, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    Darling first quilt. Pretty impressive. So another new ruler eh?? I will be interested to see how this one works. Sounds like a gold mine!

  263. JoAnne September 28, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    Nice quilt, love the colors you used. You can’t go wrong with an Irish chain. The recipe look to be delicioul.

  264. LindaW September 28, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    Those rulers sound perfect! I sometimes have trouble with rulers slipping and sharpening your rotary blade while cutting is a great idea.

  265. Carol in E TN September 28, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway…..I think the 6 1/2″ x 12″ ruler is also my favorite!

  266. Liliana September 28, 2010 at 3:33 pm

    Hi Amy. I’m glad to be able to participate by the Sullivans Edge Rulers and also happy to know all of you. I love this recipe but in my kitchen I like to put a little touch of garlic.Kisses fro Buenos Aires-Argentina. Lily

  267. Marcia W. September 28, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    Thank you for participating in the ruler blog hop. Yours is one of the first blogs that I started reading and your recipe sounds great!

  268. Bette September 28, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    My favorite size ruler is 6X24. Your first quilt is so nice and colorful! What a happy looking quilt.

  269. katieQ September 28, 2010 at 4:11 pm

    This looks like a great recipe. Your little quilt looks so bright and happy.

  270. Tamie September 28, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    You can never have too many rulers- especially since I have to share them with my daughters. Thanks for the chance to win.

  271. Jane September 28, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    What a cute quilt and it is still stylish! The more I read about the Cutting Edge Rulers, the more I’m wanting them! Even if I don’t win the prize!! And thanks for your Alfredo recipe, with cooler weather it sounds like a nice, healthy supper treat! Happy blog hopping!

  272. Linda Brown September 28, 2010 at 4:27 pm

  275. kathy harris September 28, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    Your alfredo recipe looks yummy. I have never made it myself as I thought it would be hard to get the sauce right. I think your recipe might work for me. Thanks.

  276. Rita September 28, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    Enjoyed your post, Amy. I can’t wait to try your alfredo recipe…it sound great!

  277. Marcia Kosturock September 28, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    My son will be so excited about the recipe.. He loves alfredo chicken! Thank you!

  278. Rhonda September 28, 2010 at 4:44 pm

    My favorite right now is clear frosted 6 x 12 1/2

  279. jean September 28, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Your first quilt is really cute!!
    Thanks for your input on Pat’s new rulers. They sound great and I am hoping to win some…….otherwise, just may have to buy them!

  280. Denise Daniel September 28, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    I love your recipes. Yum! Thanks for sharing with us. :D

  281. Judy G September 28, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    I did the same thing on my first binding, glad I found an easier way to to it. My favorite ruler is the 18″x6″. It just seems easier to maneuver yet gets the job done for most cuts.
    Thanks for the recipe and being part of the blog hop. Hope I win the rulers.

  282. Susan Piluk September 28, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    Great Rulers. Thanks for the recipe, too

  283. Deb G. in VA September 28, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    The rulers sound like they would be great to have. I think my favorite sized ruler is my 8.5 x 24 … it’s great for cutting larger strips.

  284. delia September 28, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    I like the quilt you featured!

  285. Carol September 28, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Hi Amy,
    Oh your dinner recipe looks so yummy!!
    My favourite size ruler used to be the same one you like, the 6 x 24. It is MIA with all the moves over the last 4 years, but the one that I have and is showing its use well is a 6 inch square. It has a bit of a ‘curve’ to the straight edge now, but it has served me well for squaring up blocks and cutting up some of those scraps LOL.
    Thank you for sharing your first quilt with us, and your generosity!
    Carol

  286. Sandy A September 28, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    Would love to try these rulers! Thanks for the chance to win!

  287. SheilaC September 28, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    What a great give away. Fingers crossed.

  290. Jenice September 28, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    Would love to win the rulers.

  291. Gretchen September 28, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    Thanks for sharing your first quilt. It’s so cute–aren’t nine-patches just the perfect little block for cute quilts?

  292. janita September 28, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    Enjoy your site. Very cute Little quilt. It’s the little things that say “HOME” Pasta looks delicious. I am going to give it a whirl! Love Alfredo pasta. Enjoying the blog hop:o)

  293. Susan McCrea September 28, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    This is like dinner and a …blog! Better than a movie; you can keep following the threads you like.

  294. PB from MN September 28, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    I think your first quilt is adorable.

  295. Amy C September 28, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    I would love to have a ruler that doesn’t slip. I can’t wait to try one of these rulers. Thanks for the recipe. It sounds yummy!

  296. Jean Carpenter September 28, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    What a cute quilt…I haven’t tried little blocks. I’m working on a Disappearing Nine Patch. Thanks for the great recipie. I’m going to try it this week.

  297. Jill M in Ohio September 28, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    Great recipe! I will have to try that! Thanks!

  298. Kim September 28, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    I love your little quilt!

  299. HeyJudee September 28, 2010 at 7:11 pm

    I love your little quilt…it is so colourful. I used to like the 9.5″ ruler the best but since I bought the 6.5×12 ruler that’s now my new favourite. It’s just the right size to square up blocks and handles so easily. And I’d love to get some of the new Edge rulers.

  300. Aniza September 28, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    I love your 1st quilt because it’s totally practical to do something small as beginner. Unlike my case back in 2003, I was asked to do a sampler quilt and I didn’t actually complete the quilt top as of today. LOL

  301. Aniza September 28, 2010 at 7:19 pm

    I%20love%20your%201st%20quilt%20because%20it’s%20totally%20practical%20%20to%20do%20something%20small%20as%20beginner.%20Unlike%20my%20case%20back%20in%202003%2C%20I%20was%20asked%20to%20do%20a%20sampler%20quilt%20%20and%20I%20didn’t%20actually%20complete%20the%20quilt%20top%20as%20of%20today.%20LOL

  302. Jeanette September 28, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    I would love to entered in your giveaway. Those rulers looks like they are what every quilter needs. your receipe looks great also. Thanks

  303. judy c September 28, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    I would love to win those rulers. I am going to make your chicken and broccoli recipe it looks yummy.

  304. Janet Best September 28, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Amy, Thanks for the recipe. That salad looks very yummy! One of my favorite things about your blog is the way you introduce us to other great crafters and their blogs! I also love to look at all your creations! The rulers look wonderful, and what quilter couldn’t use them all.
    Thanks!

  305. Debbie B September 28, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Thanks for joining in on the fun. This is my first visit here, but I will be back. I’ve got to try your recipe.

  306. Debbie in WA September 28, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Thanks for the yummy recipe!

  307. Janet September 28, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    The 6 x 24 is my most used ruler as well…these ones look great.

  308. MoeWest September 28, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    I use my 6.5 X 24 ruler quite a bit. Thanks for the recipe.

  309. Leslie Schmidt September 28, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    Yes, I have a terrible time keeping the ruler from slipping! I am in awe of people who seem able to take a swipe with the cutter and everything stays in place. The size ruler I use most frequently is the 8 1/2″ by 12″. It seems to cover most of my needs, once the longer pieces are cut.

  310. Billie K September 28, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    Great rulers!!! and recipe.

  311. Billie K September 28, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    My first comment didn’t show up. I’m trying again.

    Great rulers and recipe!

  312. Kaye M. September 28, 2010 at 8:29 pm

    I think your recipe sounds delicious but how do you get your kids to eat broccoli? No matter how I disguise it, my family won’t eat broccoli! I think these new rulers sound great, I’d love to try them.

  313. Cynthia September 28, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Love the new rulers and that I’ve now found your blog! :-)

    Cynthia

  314. byron September 28, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    this is fun. thanks for the recipe and I hope I win the rulers!

  315. Julie in WA September 28, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Wow, that little quilt has held it’s color really well. At least I assume it has been washed many times!

  316. Kim D. September 28, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Thanks Amy, I would love to have a set of rulers to help keep my blade sharpened. Your recipe looks delish and the salad looks really yummy too.

  317. Beth September 28, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    Can not wait to get one of the rulers!!!!

  318. Susie September 28, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    Thanks for sharing your first quilt experience! The 6.5 x 24 inch ruler is my fave too.

    The Alfredo recipe looks awesome yummy too!

  319. Merry G. Lape September 28, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    That recipe sounds so good! I’ll try it as soon as I get some cheese in the house. I must get my hands on these rulers! I go thru so many rotary blades.

  320. Julee Prose September 28, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    What a great idea, Blog hopping….with added bonus of recipes. Thanks

  321. Prissy September 28, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    I like your first quilt! It looks a whole lot better than my first quilt.

  322. Nancy Sue Phillips September 28, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    It is great to see everyone’s newbie quilt. I’m amazed at the 6″ ruler story. Six inches seems so tiny now!Thank you for your time and efforts into the blog hop. Recipe looks yummy too!

  323. Karen September 28, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    The recipe looks wonderful. Great post.

  324. Mary Jordan September 28, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    Hi Amy!

    I love alfredo sauce but have never been brave enough to try making myself. This sounds like something I could do. Do you like turnips? I make au gratin turnips using the same sauce recipe only use cheddar cheese. My kids thought it was home made au gratin potatoes. These are the same kids that thought homemade cookies were chips ahoy zapped in the micro wave.

    My favorite ruler is the 6 1/2 x 12 1/2. I store my fabric on “fabric organizers” and both allow me to cut my fabric without unrolling the yards I tend to buy. I do have to make sure I put it on the card straight to begin with. I think these rulers sound great if they work. I’m sure going to try one.

  325. kim September 28, 2010 at 10:01 pm

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway. I hope I made it my clock said 11pm.

  326. Rowena Muller September 28, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    The pasta recipe sounds delicious and easy,must try it. I would love to try these new rulers. Thanks, Rowena

  327. kim September 28, 2010 at 10:05 pm

    Awesome giveaway. I don’t think my first comment posted. 11:05pm cst

  328. AnnieO September 28, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    Lovely recipe, Amy! I like to use different pasta shapes too.

    I brought my backing to the front for my first quilt too! It is really common on antique quilts. I’m not sure when a separate binding became popular.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  329. Brenda Lewis September 28, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    I share your pain with cutting fabric straight,I’m so looking forward to trying the new Cutting Edge rulers., thanks for the chance to win, Brenda in Utah…

  330. Maria September 28, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    I want that salad!!!!!

  331. Anonymous September 28, 2010 at 10:56 pm

    That would be so neat, those rulers look wonderful. I saw them demo’d in Phoenix at our Shop Hop.

  332. Ruth B September 28, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    That alfredo looks to die for. As a matter of fact, last time I had alfredo I had a heart attack 2 days later! Maybe alfredo is just a distant memory for me now…but it looks fabulous!

  333. bingobonnie September 28, 2010 at 11:36 pm

    My favorite size is also the 6.5 x 24 ;) I’ve had mine from the very beginning and it’s lines have rubbed off over the years… I could so use a replacement and one of these I believe is JUST the one! Sharpener on the side is Brilliant!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie

  335. Bec Clarke September 29, 2010 at 12:05 am

    OMG that recipe sounds way too yummy, I know what we are having for dinner one night this weekend.

  336. Joscelyn September 29, 2010 at 12:57 am

    This is so much fun and the recipe sounds yummy, I love that your salad had strawberries in it, on of my favorite out of the ordinary ingredients in salads

  337. Maree Butler September 29, 2010 at 1:48 am

    Love that your quilt is still loved – even if it is by dolls and soft toys:) The colours still look so fresh against the white don’t they. My most used ruler is the 6 x 24 which for some reason is also the one I most frequently misplace – considering it’s size this always surprises me!!! Ciao

  338. Leah September 29, 2010 at 2:13 am

    I love my 6×24″ ruler. But find my 2×18 handy some times, too

  339. jeannette September 29, 2010 at 4:27 am

    Thanks for the recipe…love it!

  340. jodie September 29, 2010 at 4:53 am

    Wow these rulers are a really neat idea. I hope that I have the luck to win some. thanks for giving us the chance.

  341. michele September 29, 2010 at 4:53 am

    my favorite is my 6.5 X 24 for most cuts, but I love making half-square triangles with my triangle ruler

    Thanks for taking part in the ruler give-away! My daughter & I would love your recipe, but my DH hates broccoli, so I couldn’t make it if he’s eating… it still looks yummy! Thanks so much!

  343. Judy September 29, 2010 at 5:45 am

    The Broccolie and Pasta Alfredo is definitely on my list to try. Sounds yummy!

  344. Ursula Wonnacott September 29, 2010 at 5:54 am

    What a cute first quilt. My first was flying geese that wasn’t quite right but surely loved. Please enter my name in the giveaway.

  345. Lynn Osborne September 29, 2010 at 5:56 am

    I would love to win those rulers! Thanks for the chance.

  346. Rose Leschinsky September 29, 2010 at 6:11 am

    I think I need these!!!!!!

  347. Pauline September 29, 2010 at 6:16 am

    I really don’t have a favorite ruler…….I luv all rulers, I even have duplicates of some. I would love to win Pat’s set of rulers. Thanks for the chance…..and thanks for the recipe. I will be making this dish for sure…….sounds delicious!!!

  348. Kathi I September 29, 2010 at 6:35 am

    Recipes sound yummy and defintiely going to give them a try!
    My motto is “One can never have enough rulers” I thinkl I collect them, like I collect fabric! I seem to always reach for the Creative Grids and I always use two rulers when cutting fabric strips.

  349. yvonne September 29, 2010 at 6:39 am

    My favorite ruler is my 6×24. Thanks for the giveaway.

  350. Leslie September 29, 2010 at 6:43 am

    i am pretty sure with this many ladies going to the “hop” my chances are slim, but it is so much fun to read about your quilts and the recipes look amazing.

  351. Deborah September 29, 2010 at 6:54 am

    My favorite is the 6 1/2″ x 24. And what a wonderful giveaway this is. Isn’t it awesome when someone comes up with such an incredible idea that your rotary cutter blade can be sharpened as your cutting your fabric? Too cool! dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

  352. Betty September 29, 2010 at 7:01 am

    can’t wait to try one of these rulers

  353. Marjorie September 29, 2010 at 7:21 am

    Isn’t it funny what we discover after making a few quilts. My first has tiny stitches b/c I was a cross-stitcher and made one stitch at a time instead of a running stitch (but the back is UGLY).

  354. Kate September 29, 2010 at 7:23 am

    Fettuccine and sharpening rulers – awesome!

  355. Tricia September 29, 2010 at 7:31 am

    The 6.5 by 24 is my favorite ruler too. Mmmm, broccoli and chicken, a favorite combo of mine too.

  356. Linda September 29, 2010 at 7:37 am

    Your baby quilt is lovely…especially made with a 6″ ruler! My fav ruler is the 6 x 12″ one…I have lots of others but that is the one I consistently use!

  357. Angela September 29, 2010 at 7:42 am

    Those rulers look so cool! I’ve been eyeing that 16.5″ square!

  358. Carrie L September 29, 2010 at 7:49 am

    Thanks for taking the time to review the ruler. And thank you for the chance to win!

  359. DianeY September 29, 2010 at 7:52 am

    Slipping rulers are something I hate! And something I find way too often!

  360. VickiT September 29, 2010 at 8:15 am

    I really love the colors in your quilt, especially the back. So pretty.

    And that recipe is going to be worked into my menus over the next few weeks or so. It looks wonderful. You surely can’t go wrong when cheese is involved, right? LOL

    Thank you for the recipe.

  361. mean sarah jean September 29, 2010 at 8:19 am

  373. Agnes Wong September 29, 2010 at 9:48 am

    My favorite is the 6.5 x 24″ too but the 6.5″ square comes in as a close second for the smaller fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway, the rulers look great!

  374. Joan Blum September 29, 2010 at 9:49 am

  379. corina c September 29, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Even winning 1 ruler would be great…….but I sure wouldn’t turn down a set of 10!!!!

    Loved your baby quilt, I also used to turn my bindings to the front before I learned the correct way. :) That salad looks scrumptious! Thanks for sharing your blog, I really enjoyed it!

  400. Sandi September 29, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    I can’t believe you did a whole quilt with only a 6″ ruler! Amazing skills!

  401. Jackie Ro. September 29, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    I relate to ruler cutting of your first quilt, I have soooo been there! I was nodding my head in agreement about laying my arm down on the ruler as I cut. Enough now about the old style rulers, these new ‘cutting-edge’ rulers sound like beyonf the bomb! I want them :)

  402. Cindy Burke September 29, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Thanks for the recipe….I usually just buy a jar of alfredo sauce but now will attempt the real thing. I love your blog and have had it as a regular to look at all the time.

    These rulers have to be the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    I would just LOVE a set of those “Edge Sharpening Rulers”! Please enter me. My favorite rulers…two…the same size you mentioned and then there is a square I love not sure off hand but think it’s 7 or 8 inches square great for cutting 3-1/2″ and 5″ squares that I frequently find myself cutting.

    Crossing my fingers to be the lucky winner of such a great prize!

  476. Brenda October 2, 2010 at 11:49 am

    Hi Amy,

    Playing a little catch-up today because of the long list of things that didn’t get done during the week. In fact, I wonder if I got any of them done? Yesterday, I finally got ready to move out of the house about three. Vehicle wouldn’t start. Cranked like crazy, but no firing. Called AAA, fearing the worst, as battery is less than a year old. Waited until 4:30 for AAA guy to get there, and when he did, he hooked up all kinds of clamps and wires and meters, and at the end of it all, said my battery was bad, and to high-tail (where does that phrase come from) out to Sears and get a free new battery.

    So I did, with only one stop — at our great artisan bakery, where they only make raisin bread on weekends, and they ALWAYS have pecan bars. Had to get two bars, just because it was that kind of day. Parked at the far end of their little parking lot and left the van running while I ran in (muttering under my breath (please, somebody steal this thing). Got to Sears, waited over an hour to have somebody even look at it (they had three or four guys standing around writing orders, but only one tech on duty (smart, huh?). Well, after their repeat of the performance of the AAA guy, they said my battery was just fine; that it was a connection in the harness that was loose and they couldn’t tighten it because they didn’t have the right TOOLS.

    You can tell they need a quilter in there (maybe Pat could clone herself one more time) to keep them organized. Or if all of the quilters are busy, they at least need to hire a woman.

    Thanks for listening to me whine (even if you skipped reading the whole post

    Hi Amy,

    Your alfredo recipe looks absolutely delicious- I do love broccoli, cheese and chicken together.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this very interesting set of rulers- they look they would be great for improving accuracy.
    Regards,
    Anna

    Very excited about the new rulers. Today at my BOM meeting at our local quilt shop, the owner had some and they look wonderful. The lines are so readable. Love the recipes and seeing everyone’s first quilt.

    Thank you for the chance to win!! Such creative and inspiring ladies!!!

    Hmm, I’m curious how the rulers sharpen your cutter. I guess it just needs an edge of a material harder than the blade?

    Looks like a very lovely set, I hope I’m not too late to enter into the contest. :)

    would love to win the rulers!!
