Kathy Brown Fat Quarter Cutter

We had a terrific turn-out for the Demo Day last Saturday and I was only able to snap a few photos of Celeste and the embellished Patternista balls and 4 videos of Kathy Brown telling us about her recent activities.

Here is a quick snippet of Kathy:

I love that smart=phone app linker on her rulers. The scan takes you straight to a video where she shows you everything about the rulers. For those of you who haven't had the chance to look at one up-close, check it out:

As you can see all the unnecessary lines are eliminated and only the most-used widths are clearly lined down the length and then across the widths you see the outline to square up any charms, 2.5" and 1.5" measurements. In addition, she specified where the grippers should be on the back for the best use...... not only are they behind every number, the grippers are completely around the outer edge of the ruler. All grip, no slip!

Kathy designed this ruler to be most friendly with the popular fat quarters. The wrapper has all the dimensions you can expect to cut with this ruler from any FQ.

Here is Celeste and a couple of the Patternista balls. She used Paula Nadelstern's new fabric and beads to embellish the ornament.

If you didn't get a chance to make it, we will be repeating the Demo next Friday, January 27 between 10 am and Noon. Sadly Kathy won't be with us but you can see how smart and useful her Fat Quarter Cutter is for yourself and all the other neat notions and projects.
