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.

Mimi Baby Yowwww said...

Hi, what a cute blog..I just started quilting and I am finding so many interesting people and I am learning so many things. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by all of this, but I am determined to do something that involves quilting everyday. Does spending 2 or 3 hours on the internet checking out quilter's blogs count? LOL

Kathy said...

Cheesecake sounds so good right now.
Its a nice idea with an edge sharpener.

Jenice said...

I would love to win the rulers. cheesecake sounds yummy

Lovie said...

Good review. I really like the thought of having a 37 inch ruler. I try and cut my borders first so I don't have to piece them.

I do like the look of these rulers, without the million of little tiny measurements on them. I can't imagine owning a ruler that is 37" long!

a.niza said...

before all these blog hop thing with Pat Sloan , I've never heard of these Sullivan rulers and I just love to hear feedbacks from blogging quilters like you. New things needs good review...I'm pretty much a notion junkie myself :P but who doesn't love notions, right?

Thanks for sharing your quilt story and easy to make cheesecake!

Judy said...

love to see young people such as
yourself sewing and quilting. I love your first quilt with the
letters,very ambitious. I will be
buying and trying those new rulers

ing that cheesecake recipe on my
grandkids, it does sound dangerous!

I'd love to win the rulers!

LindaW said...

These rulers sound great. Thanks for a chance to win.

Jane Biles said...

Thanks for reviewing some of the sizes for the rulers. 37" is a much longer ruler than I have, but would be good for trimming. Your quilt is really colorful and fun. Thanks for the cheescake recipe...who can resist?

Carol in E TN said...

Your cheese cake recipe sounds wonderful. I am anxious to use one of these rulers

Cheesecake AND a chance to win rulers!?! It's all too much! ok, so it's not! I'd love to win these rulers, especially the 37" long one. I'm drooling at a the prospect of a ruler that long.

Linda Dalton said...

Loved your comments on the rulers you can tell you really tested them well. And that cheesecake recipe makes me drool just reading it. Thanks for sharing. :)

Laine said...

Not only do I love a chance to win these rulers I really am enjoying reading new blogs. Loved your story about your quilts. I don't know anything about Greek letters so I had to go through each letter before I found the mistake.

Kim said...

Thanks for the cheesecake recipe! The rulers look so cool, I would love to win them!

Janet said...

I would love to win new rulers. They look awesome. Our family makes this kinds of cheesecake too. Quick and easy.

jackiero said...

Hey Julie :)
As always, I enjoyed your review; your college quilt (I still don't see your boo-boo) and your non-foody recipe (I can never say 'no' to cheesecake anything).
Take care lady.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I like the idea of a 37 inch ruler too - and one that keeps your blade sharp is a bonus!

Bette said...

Yum, cheesecake!

Sounds like you had good experience with the rulers! Good to know!

Cindy said...

I really enjoy your blog...one of which I keep on my feed. I enjoyed your story about double checking your work...I think we've all made a few mistakes like that.

Susie said...

Awesome review! This was a fun post to read. The recipe looks totally YUM. I loved the "Do not use low fat" for the cream cheese. I know there's a reason for it but it made me chuckle and think to myself, "Self? Who would want a 'low fat' cheesecake anyway?"

It also made me feel "good" that a talented quilter such as yourself can make mistakes and be okay with it. Thank you for sharing this!

crazypatch dreamer said...

The rulers sound really neat. Thank you for the story and the recipe!

Virginia said...

Great story about the quilt. Chocolate and salt - what could be better. I actually like it better than - gasp - cheese cake. Here's hoping the rulers will soon be part of my tool case.

Thanks for your review on the rulers - they would certainly make a nice addition to mine and Mom's quilting corners! But I am wondering... what is the life span of the sharpening edge of the ruler? Hope its 9-lifetimes, cuz we quilters have too many projects for just one! Thanks for the cheesecake recipe too!

I guess we've all done that "reverse" block thing at one time or another! Think some new rulers would help with that?? Couldn't hurt... :-)

Thanks for the honest review on the rulers. Would love to try them out. When I seen your sorority quilt I was reminded of the quilt I just did for my daughter. She is the president of the knitting society at her university and I made a quilted banner for her during the sign up week for the clubs. She called me 2 days later to say that it was stolen. I don't know who was more heart broken and I remembered I didn't even take a picture of it.

Late to the party, but I made it! It was that cheesecake recipe that was calling my name!!! Can't wait to try it!

That cheesecake sounds great!

Well, I've tried twice to leave a comment - don't think anything has posted.

Hi Julie, I would like you to do a couple of favors for me. First of all, make up a batch of that cheesecake (a double batch if you'd like), and then mail it to me (snail mail, that it). Second, call up Pat and tell her not to mess around with that random number thing and to just send the rulers to me. I really, really want them.

Thanks so much for your help.

I have a similar cheesecake recipe that is very popular in our house. Your chocolate covered pretzels look delicious too.
Thanks for the opportunity to win the rulers. It sounds pretty neat that they can help with keeping the rotary cutter blade sharp.
Regards,
Anna
