This week the 2019 Quilter’s Planner designers share their favorite notions and tools to give some inspiration and helpful insights to help make your sewing and quilting life more functional!

Sylvia Schaefer from Flying Parrot Quilts (@flyingparrotquilts) says her favorite quilting notions are Clover Wonder Clips, and a seam ripper (not really a favorite, but necessary!). **Sylvia loves to arrange her Clover Wonder Clips in rainbow order. Keep an eye out for any images she shares using the clips and you will notice this trend!

Karie Jewell from Two Kwik Quilters (@karie_twokwikquilters) says her favorite quilting notions are a hand-turned seam ripper with replaceable ripper ends by Sawyer Creek Artistry and  the “Stash and Store” by It’s So Emma.

Megan Fisher from @ayragon likes to use a seam roller for paper piecing. “It sets the seam and keeps me from needing to iron after each piece is added. I also like Elmers glue sticks for glue basting seams when I am sewing curves.”

Cheryl Brickey from Meadow Mist Designs (@meadowmistdesigns) says, “My bloc-loc ruler is one of my favorite specialty rulers for perfect HST and flying geese. Another favorite notion is my Olfa cutter, it is ergonomic for lots of cutting.”

Kerry Goulder from Kid Giddy (@kidgiddy) says her favorite notions are the Water2 light box and seam ripper. “One helps me see my fussy cuts better, and one helps me when my seams don’t line up the way I want.”

Shannon Fraser from Shannon Fraser Designs (@shannonfraserdesigns) says her two favorite notions are a Hera marker and color cards. 

Andrea Tsang Jackson from 3rd Story Workshop (@3rdstoryworkshop)’s favorite notion are her Tula Pink EZ Snips.

Kate Colleran from Seams Like a Dream Quilts (@seamslikeadreamquilts) shares that her favorite notions are Sewing Edge and painter’s tape.

Lee Chappell Monroe from May Chappell (@maychappell) says that her favorite notions are the Perkins Seam Guide and Kwik Klip.

Trinia Braughton from Penguin Feats (@penguinfeats) loves her yellow clips and yellow masking tape!!

Yvonne Fuchs from Quilting Jetgirl (@quiltingjetgirl) really enjoys using the frosted OLFA acrylic rulers, especially the 6″ x 24″ ruler with all the marked angles.

Stephanie Palmer from the Quilter’s Planner (@thequiltersplanner) says, “I love my Sewline water soluble glue stick, which I use to baste shapes for English Paper Piecing, and sometimes to baste my binding. I also am head over heels for my flying geese and braid Triangles on a Roll paper. It makes it easy to sew without much measuring or planning, which is a huge time saver for me.”
