    since you started quilting? Things have advanced so much since I started 15 or so years ago..And look at all the beautiful amazing quilts our Grandmothers made with scissors and a wooden frame. =)

    I'm a gadget girl and I LOVE everything. That doesn't mean I use it..I have alot of stuff gathering dust. But I had to ask..because surely I'm not the only one that loves the "next best thing"..

    My most used is my QuiltCut...whats yours?

    Hands down, it's gotta be the rotary cutter! There's just no better way to get consistent results.

    My Pfaff Creative 4.0. It is an awesome machine and I get so much more done with it than I did my last machine. I can't imagine sewing without it now.

    The best item I have since I started quilting is a sewing machine- Viking Quilt Designer.

    Same here. I use the rotary cutter to cut out garments as well as quilts.

    There are plenty of gadget/cutters/rulers that I could mention.
    Lord knows, I have more than my fair share!
    However, the one purchase that has totally revolutionized my quilting is a book.

    Crazy Shortcut Quilts by Marguerita McManus & Sarah Raffuse

    I've not done a crazy quilt but their QAYG method has made quilting a real joy for me.
    I just could not stuff anything larger than a 60"x60" lap quilt (on a good day) into the throat of my sewing machine without wanting to pull my hair out.
