Hi again! I just got back from JoAnn's - I was looking for things on my "list" of things I will need (that you provided :))
I had an Olfa 45mm rotary cutter in my hands and was looking at the rulers when dh found an Olfa "value kit" with, what appears to be, the same rotary cutter, a 6x12 frosted ruler and a 12x18 mat - on clearance for $14.97! I'm sure the quality isn't quite the same, but I went ahead and got it anyway. Do you think it was a wise purchase?
And I was looking at the Gutterman thread they have - it's all 100% polyester. If I prewash (preshrink) all the fabric first, would this thread be ok?
(and I got a bunch of fat quarters at the quilt shop (on major sale) and the quilters dream batting..... I'm getting closer! ;))
