Sponsored review & giveaway: The Edge Rulers by Sullivans

Sponsored review & giveaway:
The Edge Rulers by Sullivans
disclosure: this review is in exchange for sample rulers


Welcome to day 3 of the blog hop!
There is a lot going on in this post!
Intro
Review
A Story
A Recipie
& A Giveaway!

As you probably know by now Pat Sloan partnered with Sullivans to create new rulers. These are not just your standard rulers. These rulers have a Diamond Carbide Edge that maintains the sharpness of your Rotary
Cutter blade as it spins. So when Pat asked me to test out the rulers I was very excited! Regular readers of my blog know that I'm a bit of a notion junkie.

Ruler Features
• Full see-through NON SKID frosting keeps the ruler from sliding and makes it light enough to see your fabric through it.
• Unique red grid system to highlight the ½” marking, using both lines to square up blocks or to cut squares effortlessly.
• Diagonal with dots large enough to see for fabric positioning.
• Large numbers for easy visibility that never blend into the fabric.
• Very light ⅛” markings do not distract when using the most common ¼” markings.

The fantastic Monica aka Happy Zombie designed this great graphic for the hop!

My Experience with the Rulers

The rulers are available in 10 sizes. I decided to test out the 4.5” x 37” and the 16.5” x 16.5” square. As Kelly wrote on Monday you will hear a sound you are not used to when first using these rulers. The sound comes from the metal of the blade going along the metal of the ruler during the sharpening process.

I like these rulers. They take a bit of time to get used to, but the sharpening part does work. I tested it out with a sharp blade and a dull blade to see for myself. I did have a video tutorial planned for you but life has prevented me from finishing it in time. Hopefully I'll have the video done for you soon.

The 4.5” x 37” is now the longest ruler I own. It is very handy to have a long ruler for trimming the sides of my quilts once they are quilted. Also since it is about a yard it helps in measuring out fabric. The 16.5” x 16.5”  is now my largest square ruler. I love using square rulers to trim blocks.

A story of twin quilts
In December of 2005 I decided to make a greek letter quilt. I had been making countless lettered t-shirts for my sorority sisters and friends on campus. I started the quilt on 12/6 and finished it by 12/24. I loved the quilt and had it hung up in my office on campus. {I worked for the Fraternity & Sorority Life Office.}


Summer of 2006 came and along with it our Bi-Annual Sorority Convention. A Notice went out about collecting items for the silent auction. Even though I loved my quilt I decided to donate it to help raise money. Many people began to bid on the quilt, but quickly a bidding war started between Kristin and Bobbi. Bobbi won.

Before I knew it summer of 2008 had arrived. I was on the Convention team and at the last minute decided to make the quilt again so that Kristin could have one. I started it on 7/3 and finished it on 7/5. She was completely shocked and loved it. While all the letters are different fabrics I actually had enough of the border, sashing and backing fabrics to make them the same.

There is a lesson here...
A lesson I didn't learn until this year. Earlier this year I attended an event with Bobbi. She mentioned how she uses the mistake in my quilt to help teach the Greek alphabet. I said.. "mistake"?? Apparently despite my planning and taking progress pics along the way... I reversed the Tau & Upsilon. I'd like to think that I only didn't notice because they are similar in shape. At least I got the second one right!

Lesson learned... double check everything before you sew it together... especially when it's letters

As a part of this blog hop Pat asked each of us to post a recipe. Those who know me, know that I can't cook. Lucky for me she said we could as for help!

No Leftover Cheesecake

Filling:
2 blocks of cream cheese (do NOT use low fat) - softened
2 cups of powdered sugar (sifted or whisked)
16 oz tub of Cool Whip

Crust:
2 1/4 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup white sugar
9 Tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

To make the crust:
Mix your graham cracker crumbs, your sugar, your melted butter, and cinnamon until well blended. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.

To make the filling:
Mix the cream cheese with mixer until smooth. Then add the powdered sugar one cup at a time and mix until smooth. Add in the entire tub of cool whip and again, mix until smooth. Please do not add items out of this order or your mixture will be lumpy. :)

Put it in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. Keep it chilled when not being served.

When ready to serve, add your favorite pie filling on the top and watch it disappear before your eyes. :)



I did post two recipes before. Apple Pie and Chocolate Covered Pretzles.

Great recipe and looks easy enough to make. I am keen on the rulers as keeping the rotary cutter sharp as it cuts is a good idea. Thanks for the giveaway.

gale said...

Great review! I had never heard of these rulers before this.

SewCalGal said...

Fun post Julie. I'm definitely interested in trying out these rulers. I love it that they sharpen the blade and are non-skid. Even better to know that you recommend them.

Sara said...

Do you know if they will be releasing these in metric? I love the idea of sharpening my blades as I cut, but I do all my math (and therefore my cutting) in metric, so despite their edge inventiveness, their measurements mean they'd never get used...

Patti said...

I can't wait to try the new rulers!! Great job on a first quilt! Isn't there a story about how native americans always have a mistake in their work? Cheesecake sounds like my kind of easy desert!!

Ruth B said...

I absolutely love these rulers. I am a huge fan of quilting notions and tools and these look great. Fingers crossed!

Amy said...

Cute idea of a Greek alpha quilt. I absolutely love cheesecake.

Beth said...

The first to comments is that good or bad??? I am very excited about these new rulers....

Bec Clarke said...

Oh that cheesecake sounds like one I make, I am not allowed to visit anyone without one during the Christmas party season.

Debbie said...

Those Greek letter quilts are really cool, Julie. Glad you're having fun with the rulers. Now, help me win some. :):)

Lilac Barries said...

oooh this is sooo exciting and I love the cheesecake recipe

Györgyi Varga said...

Hello Jaybird! I read your blog first time and it's so lovely. Your new quilt is very nice i love that colours. Thanks Pat Sloane to guide me to your webpage. Have a nice day. Györgyi

Beth said...

Love cheesecake!!! can not wait to get one of the new rulers.

maree said...

Had to smile when reading your post - have had a few 'mistakes' in my time in my quilting but have always managed to turn them into 'purposeful unique features'!!!!! Your recipe sounds so nice but I don't think we can get Cool Whip here and not sure what a replacement could be so will have to just drool instead. Thanks for sharing a great blog as usual. Ciao

Mary said...

Can't go wrong with cheesecake! Love the rulers. Thanks.

Leah said...

Mmmm Yummy cheesecake

Rose said...

I would love to have that 4.5 x 37ruler and it sharpens the blade too, wow! Love your first quilts and was amazed at how fast you assembled them.

Brigitte said...

please put my name in the virtual hat. It would be wonderful to get this clever new rulers. Never heard about them before. Normally it takes some time before we get this gadget in Germany. Greetings Brigitte

Stacey said...

those rulers look super amazing!! I really would love to win a set! thanks julie

SoozeM said...

Cool quilt, thanks for sharing it with us!

Teresa Felgueiras said...

Jeannette said...

These rulers look very interesting, I am always up for something new to make my life easier, thanks!

Tallahassee Applique Society said...

Yummy cheesecake, yummy rulers! I want both!! julie stchsluv@aol.com

Steffi´s Candy Quilts said...

Your recipe sounds very yummy! I think I´ll try it some day.
Would LOVE to win the rulers! Until now I don´t have a lot of rulers.

Patty C. said...

Thank you for the review :)

Colleen said...

I love how different everyon's first quilt stories are! Also I love how funny they are!

Jodie said...

Wow these rulers are a really neat idea. I hope that I have the luck to win some. thanks for giving us the chance.

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

Both of your Greek letter quilts are beautiful. Mistake or not, they both look great.

Amy said...

I started with Greek alphabet appliqued sweatshirts in college too! They were expensive in the bookstore, and fun with fabrics you picked to match your sisters.

Vicki @ DottyJane said...

I always enjoy your reviews, Julie. Thanks for participating in the hop!

Wilma NC said...

Love chocolate covered pretzels!! I want the rulers. Cute story about the Greek alphabet quilt.

Becky said...

These sound cool. Neat that someone is making improvements on stuff you don't even think about.
Your letters- ugh! Sometimes you just dont see these things! Ack.

lovetostitch said...

Loved that story, and how generous to make a second quilt for your friend!! I'm new to your blog, and enjoyed it very much reading thru previous postings. Thanks, bunches!

Michele said...

My dh loves cheesecake, and I like baking, especially when I don't have to turn on the oven!

I have a 37" ruler already, but one that is 4" wide would be more useful.

Becky said...

Thanks for testing the Sullivan rulers! Loved your story about the Greek alphabet quilts!

violet78 said...

Quilt looks great. I didn't notice the mistake.

Stormy Days said...

I sent a link to your blog to my daughter who is big on her sorority. I think she will love that quilt. Thanks for sharing.

amroth98 said...

I would never still be quilting if I had to do it all with templates. And rulers that sharpen at the same time? Genius! Thanks for the giveaway!

jillquilts said...

Thanks for sharing the story of the twin quilts. Definitely sounds like something I would do! lol

Judy Sullivan said...

Thank you for giving us a chance to win the rulers. I need! new rulers.!

Wendy said...

Thanks for the review of the rulers and sharing your quilt story. I'm looking forward to trying your cheesecake recipe too :)

Birdena said...

Thank you for participating in this fun blog hop and thank you for sharing your experience with me...I have made several of those 'mistakes' too. One could argue whether they are mistakes or just making sure people are paying attention.

patty a. said...

Thanks for the recipe and the great advice when using letters. I just was stamping a piece and I now have a backwards capital D. I am going to chalk it up to the charm of the piece! Thanks for participating in the giveaway!

Mama Pea said...

That's pretty interesting about the "mistake" in the quilt. It seems like as soon as I take a photo of my quilt, the mistakes just jump right out at me. I have started laying out the quilt and taking a photo before sewing. I don't know why I can see it in the photo but not IRL! ha ha

so-crazy said...

This giveaway is so much fun I just love your quilt you made for your friend's mother she will treasure it for the rest of her life. There are so many talented people out there and this gives us a chance to meet them. Thanks Linda

Shellie said...

I would have goofed on the alphabet. Love cheesecake and your work is great.

PaTcHwOrK jEnN said...

Too funny on your quilt. How awesome that there was a bidding war. I would love to win the rulers.

VivOaks said...

LOVE all the quilts I've checked out on your blog. Thanks for taking part in the ruler give-away. They look amazing, and I'd love to win! Google is messing with me, and not letting me sign in, so my email is wvoaks @ comcast.net.

Deb said...

I enjoyed the story of your innocent mistake on the quilts! You are a very fast quilter, too! I'd love to be entered for the rulers.

free indeed said...

Your friend must have been delighted! What a great thing to do.
I was curious to see if the rulers would actually sharpen a dull blade...it'll be so nice to get a longer life on those expensive blades! My first thought for such a long ruler is why? but you gave a good way to use it truing up the quilt sides before quilting....hmm that would be handy.

Lynn Osborne said...

Love those recipes. Thanks for sharing.

Carla said...

Love your blog. Must come back later to read more. Love the rulers also. Please enter me.

SueB said...

I am going to get one of these rulers to try. Nothing like sharpening your ruler as you cut.

Ursula said...

I love this idea for posting first quilts. It's great to see how everyone has come along. Thank you for the yummy cheesecake recipe. Please enter my name in the giveaway.

madrekarin said...

Great review! Cute quilt! I didn't notice the letter mix-up until you pointed it out. Thanks for sharing the cheesecake recipe! Yum.

Rose said...

Boy, these rulers would save on blades!

Pat said...

Ohhh-that cheesecake recipe sounds great. I like to make 2 quilts at the same time too, but I am more selfish and keep one for myself.

The Tulip Patch said...

These rulers are a brilliant idea! Sign me up! I'm more excited about this than even FABRIC!

pinsandneedles said...

Love the rulers! I am so excited to have a chance at winning!
Thanks for the yummy cheesecake recipe!

kautz potatoes said...

Awesome rulers!

Lee said...

Thank you for the review. Once you get used to what you are using its hard to change over...they sound great though.

Editor said...

These rulers sure look interesting..I have a bunch of dull blades..I'll have to go and get one to try out! Thanks for the review.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

These rulers sound so awesome! Thanks for the review.

Debi said...

Wonderful new rulers and the recipe for cheesecake is what I need for a quilt retreat.

mascanlon said...

Oh my, how nice it would be to have the long ruler. Its annoying trying to trim and square up the quilt using even a 24in one so a 37 would be great! We have a family full of Greeks and none are the same, with a quilt like yours they could play greek bingo!

Darlene B said...

These rulers look great - I would love to win them all! dsb448@att.net

Quilt n Queen said...

I feel as I'm a winner already....all the recipes sound delicious. I love cheese cake......I'm going to save this one and try it when my weight loss challenge is over.....mid Nov. I'll treat myself after my last weight in. I really really really would love to win the ruler set. Thank you to you bloggers testing and writing about them. This is a great blog hop. Thanks bunches.

cakegirl said...

Cute quilt. Thanks for a chance to own what sounds like a terrific ruler.

Nanbon44 said...

cheesecake is my favorite so I will be checking out your recipe, thanks....As for the rulers, last night I could have used them, seems my blade was a little dull so before cutting I had to change it....

SheilaS said...

Easy recipe-love those! And it sounds so easy. I love your first quilt story-it's nice to know that other people make mistakes too. The rulers sounds interesting. I know I would love that very long one. I have done many projects that I had wished someone had made one.

Leslie said...

i am loving the recipes and shared quilt stories that come with this hop. thanks for sharing. that pie sounds amazing. these rulers are just too cool....how clever to sharpen as you go.

Deborah said...

Ha-ha! I don't really cook either, and when we have a function at the office, I always volunteer to do the "guy" things like cups, napkins, sodas, potato chips, or I go to the deli and pick up whatever is needed. Too funny. And I just love the edge rulers. What a neat idea! dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Mystica said...

I do not have a rotary cutter and still cut with a template and scissors! Would love to win.

mystica123athotmaildotcom

The other blog for the 29th has still not put up the post!! I am worried!!!

pigbook1 said...

cheesecake beats out normal cake any day of the week. yumm

Gloria J W said...

I love the idea of the rulers sharpening the cutter. Sounds so right to me. Count me in on the draw too please. Gloria :]

Vicki said...

I've never seen a Greek alphabet quilt before cool I would love to win the rulers

Anya said...

Thanks for the chance!

Melinda said...

Funny story about your mistake in the alphabet! The more I hear about these rulers the more I want them!

Cindy said...

The recipe sounds delicious! CAn't wait to try the rulers.

kindacrafty said...

Really? I can't use low-fat cream cheese? Well, I guess if you insist. The rulers look cool, too - I like that they have less markings.

Lee Ann said...

that cheesecake looks simple to make. Thanks!

Also, thank for the review on the rulers. Sounds like it'd will be a great addition to the sewing/guest room :-)

Karin said...

Coming over to you with lots of love from IHAN! Terrific stories, quilts, gadgets & recipes - AND giveaways! - who wouldn't love it! Please tell me I've won those rulers at kcallander989[at]gmail.com. THANKS!

VickiT said...

What a great idea for these rulers. I'd love to own them and try those out. The blades for our rotary cutters aren't cheap and if these work as well as you are saying, they will help to save money.

Thank you too for the cheesecake recipe. I LOVE cheesecake but not the New York style and your recipe looks wonderful.

marilyn said...

thanks for the chance to win the rulers. I love the post about how long does it take to make a quilt. Sometimes it takes an hour, sometimes it takes 3 years :)

Marj said...

Your quilt story was great and the cheesecake recipe sounds good. Thanks for being part of the giveaway.

Winona said...

Good post. I can feel the weight jumping on me just from reading that recipe. LOL Your Greek alphabet quilts are cute. I have kept all my dull blades. I need to win the rulers to sharpen them. (grin) Winona

Debbie said...

Good review of the rulers. I love your quilt story. Lots of interesting stuff on your blog.

Kare said...

my current rulers have seen better days as they've been used so much that the markings are worn off, and lets not even bring up the 6x24 ruler that was snapped in half while inside my suitcase . . .

emmy said...

Will definitely be trying your no bake cheese cake recipe as we live in FL. The rulers do sound wonderful, especially the self sharpening and a great variety of sizes.

Carrie L said...

Thanks for taking time to review this. And for giving us the chance to win! :)

Monica said...

Thank you for the informative review and a chance to win.

cornbreadandbeansquilting said...

I was trying to say the Greek alphabet looking at your first quilt. HA!! I couldn't EVEN do it. It's been way too many years since I was a pledge. =)
Those are pretty impressive quilts for your first tries. You go getter you!!

Took me a minute to find your mistake but I finally did after comparing the pictures over and over again. Thanks for the recipe too!

Grace said...

I like the whole concept of these rulers. Makes good sense if they allow you to get more life out a rotary blade, because they are expensive replace. This recipes sounds pretty good too. Thanks for sharing.

Great recipe! I love your tutorials.
Fun site!

Kyle said...

With each new comment about the rulers I am eager to give them a try. I look forward to reading more on your blog.

Fun quilt story! I've noticed mistakes in my quilts after they've hung on my wall for years, so I can relate! A 37" ruler would be great for cutting borders, and big chunks. A sharp blade would be nice too!

Thanks, Julie, are joinging the hop. These rulers look like they would be great for fighting my nemesis - dull blades. Kathie L in Allentown

The rulers look wonderful and to sharpen your blade at the same time you cut is just to good to be true! Your recipe sound yummy!

Wow I love cheesecake...my favourite dessert! Bet this one will be fantastic. Your first quilt is great and only someone who knows the Greek alphabet will notice the error...LOL and that's not me!

Love cheesecakes!!!
It is amazing to see the new designs for the rulers. Would love to try it in person too. :D

Oh I love you Greek quilt. I giggled about the reversal of the letters though. I would not have known the difference but my hubby and his whole side of the family are Greek and I would have never heard the end of it if I would have done that.
Great post!

hello Julie,
Thanks for sharing. I think the rulers sound spectacular. So I would love to win! Cheese cake... #1 dessert in my book! I don't have a recipe like it so will definately be trying it out. All my recipes are baked. Have a fantastic fall day!

I love first quilts. They are never what they seem yet still it sparks something inside all of us: the love of quilting!

I can't wait to try out these rulers. There's nothing I hate more than a dull rotary blade.

Thanks for the reminder to recheck before sewing. I had extra blocks cut, but ot sewn, for a friendship style quilt, and zipped them together one day. I put them on my design wall, and walked past them for over a month, before I noticed there were mistakes in 2 of them. Glaring large misplacements of triangles!! lol.
