    I have quite a few but the best is the Quilt in a Day triangle square up ruler. It saves so much cutting and your HST's come out perfect.
    I also like her flying geese rulers.
    I agree the Kwik Klip and pin covers are a great hand saver.

    My Pfaff SID foot. It works like a plough and keeps me in the groove.

    Mine would be my magnetic pin holder and my gingher snips. I have had my snips for years and they are the best.

    I'm glad to hear this. I've been intending to get one, but wondered how well it worked. Now I'll buy one. Thanks!

    I haven't seen anything new, but I do keep looking. Have to learn how to use all the ones I have. Can't say I have a favorite.

    I love my seam rippers, embroidery scissors and magnetic pin holder.

    I love notions! I can spend some happy time just looking and touching them, and of course picking out one to take home. I have an assortment of seam rippers. Just got a new one today. I use them a lot :lol:

    My absolute favourite..at the moment :lol: is my glass headed applique pins which i only just bought. They are so fine that they just glide into the material..heaven..and you can iron over them as they are heat resistant. They are truly a pleasure to use..can you tell i love them :D
    They were a little pricey and for anyone interested they are by clover and they also had patchwork pins which were extra long but were even dearer. Mine have see through yellow and blue glass heads..so pretty...and the other good thing is you can see them easier on the floor with the glass head.

    My favs are my seam ripper and razor blade because I do a lot of ripping. :lol:

    Then there is my 6" ruler I can't live without! And my long handled tweezers and snips.

    If I see something nifty that will help too, I will buy it.

    I just love notions and usually can't help buying that "new" one that will just revolutionize my quilting. My favorite new gizmo is the Triangulations CD -- I made flawless (well -- almost :lol: ) 1" 1/2 square triangles......
