A new favorite quilting tool

Yes my new favorite quilting tool is the Stanley tape measure.  I follow Tim over at Tim Quilts. He is constantly amazing me with his talent.  I also love that he does it the Tim way.  For those of you that follow him, you know what I am talking about. I have seen several posts were he is using the Stanley tape measure.   I was cutting background and borders for my new project and decided to give it a try.  Now I realize why my husband hides this in the tool box in the garage or has one clipped to his belt. What a fantastic help, when it came to measuring long lengths, and it has this wonderful lock, so you can adjust it to the length you need.  Thank you Tim for opening my eyes and helping me look at things a bit differently.  Now if only some of that wonderful creativity and artistic talent could rub off and come my way! LOL


  1. I like the way you think! What a great tool. Tim is very inspirational to follow, isn't he?

  2. really enjoy following Tim too, wish I could hand quilt like he does.
    I love using my old fashion yellow tape measurer as it lays flat right on top of the fabric and is so easy to handle.
    have a wonderful weekend

  3. LOL....I love this!....Thanks!! Glad to know the tool box stuff works for other as well and its not just a guy thing ;)
