Default My New Favorite Quilting Tool.....that we all probably use more than we like

I ran across this new seam ripper at a quilt shop. Let me tell you this is the best $6.50 I have spent on a quilting tool in a very long time. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. And the thread remover WORKS!!

that is interesting Cajun. Do the 'rubbing the seam' parts feel sort of flexible like bathroom caulk?

Of course I'll have to have one. I have as many seam rippers as I have scissors. The Fons and Porter big red and cream seam ripper handle will remove the cut threads too.

I had one of these in my hand ready to purchase at a recent quilt show and opted against it. Darn.

You can never have too many seam rippers! I will keep my eyes peeled for that one at my LQS. ( isn't "eyes peeled" a funny expression.)

No it is not flexible like bathroom calk, it is a hard rubber and does not flex.

You enabler you, Cajun. I saw this last weekend at Quilt Expo in Portland and thought to myself, I don't need another seam ripper. Guess what I'm doing this morning....

However, I've always found that an emery board does a very good job of snagging those tiny loose threads!

I may order one. I like how it gets rid of those pesky threads!
