    Cool Binding Tool

    Ok so call me a gadget girl...but I came across this binding tool I've never seen and since I love love my quilting gadgets I was going to purchase it, BUT!!!!! She only sells it in the US. Oh well no biggy. But I thought I would share with everyone else in case someone else likes their quilting gadgets as much as I do.

    I cannot get the video to work. And the picture is way to small for me to get anything out of it to see what is going on.

    It is almost like the Quilter's Boot (which is about $8). The Quilter's Boot does several different angles.....the 45, 90, 60, 120, and 135. I can't remember the website, but your local shop can order it from Checker. The Quilter's Boot was demoed at the Checker Open House in August. It's pretty nice. I did pick one up from the designer at an AQS show. I think her website is something like Time To Quilt or something. I hope that helps a bit. Oh, and Checker sells to shops internationally, so have your local shop look into it, or contact the woman who designs the Quilter's Boot. If you can't find who designs it, PM me and I will look in my stuff to help you more.

    I'd be more inclined to go to the dollar store, buy a package of 2 thin cutting board mats, set one aside for template use, then make my own "quilters boot" using my rotary cutter and cutting mat lines, then marking it with permanent marker. lol Yeah, I'm cheap. I can find much better uses for my $10! lol

    Actually, I just fold up binding at the corner, then set the edge of my seam ripper where I want the fold and pull the binding back down. Perfect every time, no extra "tools" needed!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Don't click on the you-tube picture....go down to the bottom of the page and click on the words that say something like watch here. I was able to watch the video. If you click on the icon inthe far right corner, it will expand the screen to a full screen.
    It looks neat...you are mitering the corners so one doesn't have to make the stitches in the corners.

    For me, it said "video has been removed by owner".

    I think this is a " not so blatant" attemp to sell...it belongs on a different section
