I Have Been On The EDGE... For A Giveaway!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Pat Sloan's Edge Ruler Blog Hop!! I have been so excited to post about her new rulers, but you will have to humor me just a little and take a look at a few things.

First and foremost... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!! I LOVE YOU!!

Now do you have a cup of tea or coffee? Go ahead and get one, I'll wait. So glad you are back!!

I wanted to share with you my very first finished quilt!! As luck may have it, I had a photo and scanned it to show you. I gave this away to my wonderful college roommate, so it is no longer in my possession.


This quilt is the Star Log Cabin and was done in a class in which we used Eleanor Burns' Quilt in A Day book! I was hooked. But look at those fabrics... calicoes mostly. Boy, have my tastes changed!

Prior to this quilt, I had taken a class and the teacher wanted to teach us the "old school" way, scissors and cardboard templates. What a turn off. Boy, I could have used one of these...


Yes, a rotary cutter and an EDGE ruler from Sullivan's and Pat Sloan. This ruler sharpens your rotary blade as you cut. Genius! You can see the diamond powder edge, just enlarge the photo. The best thing is they come in all different sizes and they are also NON-Skid too and it works like a charm. To learn more, just click here.

So I bet now that you have your coffee or tea you need something to go with that right?


MMMM.... yummy homemade granola cereal. It is delicious, here is the recipe for you:

Mom’s Own Cereal

compliments of Shirley Swenson my sister in law!

4 cups rolled oats

2 ½ cups wheat germ (20 oz. = 4 ½ cups)

1 tsp. cinnamon

2-3 Tbsp. brown or raw sugar

¾ cup honey

1/3 cup salad oil

1 tsp. vanilla

Chopped dates, raisins, dried cranberries and nuts about 3/4 cup each


Mix the oats, wheat germ, cinnamon, and sugar together. Add the honey and mix well (with your hands if necessary). Add the salad oil and vanilla, and mix again with your hands. Add the chopped dates, nuts, raisins, and any other toppings as desired. Spread in two baking pans (such as 9” x 13” pans), and bake in 325 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Serve with milk. Keeps well. Store in a Tupperware type container.




I promise you, you will love this cereal and the ruler!!

Now the info on the giveaway of a COMPLETE SET of these wonderful rulers!!



Isn't Pat cute? And that ruler that she is holding is NOT included in the prize... ahem, it is enlarged to show detail...

But here is what ONE lucky winner will receive.


WOW!! Who can't use a good set of rotary rulers? All you will need to do is place a comment on EACH one of the blogs that are on the blog hop. But make sure it is on the blog post for the rulers and that you have a way for us to contact you (e-mail). Everyone who has commented on EACH blog will be entered into the drawing and Pat will draw the winner on Monday, October 4.

You will be able to comment on EACH blog through Sunday night!! So make sure you visit everyone on the list below:

Happy Birthday Jackie's Mom!!! you have a wonderful generous daughter. Thanks Jackie for being a part of Pat's blog hop. I would love a set of these rulers or a bungle of beautiful fabrics!

Phyllis said...

I too learned the old way to quilt with cardboard templates. So time consuming. Thanks for the recipe, sounds yummy. Phyllis

pinsandneedles said...

Even if the fabric on your first quilt is a little dated, the pattern is a cute one! Think of what it would look like in fresh modern fabrics!

I would love to try/own these rulers! They sound amazing!

A recipe for some homemade granola! YUM!

rebecca said...

the cereal recipe is yummy!!! I have a place for those rulers in my sewing room!!!

Nancy said...

What a great giveaway - thanks!

madrekarin said...

Thanks for the yummy granola recipe! We love it as a snack at our house. I am so excited about these rulers! I cannot wait to see them. In my sewing room would be the best place for viewing, I think. ;)

SarahVee said...

Thanks for sharing your first quilt - calico and all! I've been waiting for these rulers since Pat first mentioned them awhile ago. Love your fat quarter giveaway too. Thanks, Jackie, for hopping with Pat.

V. J. said...

Awwh, I wish I had a photo of my first quilt -- Calico must have been the rage then - it was blue calicos, also.

Thanks for entering me in the giveaway!

Darlene said...

Thanks for sharing your first quilt with us and a "what sounds delicious" granola recipe. I love the idea of not having to replace blades as frequently and would love to give the rulers a try!

Anya said...

Happy Birthday to your mom and thanks for the chance!

Joy said...

My first quilt looked like it was made from the same fabrics. You got to love those calicos.

Birdena said...

Ruthie said...

I think your first quilt looks great. Your cereal recipe sounds wonderful and since I eat cereal every single day, I will certainly try it.

Kathy said...

I like the ideas of the rullers. Is the sharpener on both sides? Since as a left hander my set up would be opposite of yours! (blade and cutter on the "other" side)
Love the fabric!

Misty said...

It's amazing how our fabric tastes change! And I will so be making that recipe for me and my kids! Thanks!

mascanlon said...

My first quilt was that pattern too! And in calicos! My next class was a traditional sampler using templates etc but I stayed withit because the shop owner had a wonderful eye for fabric and great teachers. In fact in the 90s she had the whole spectrum of Kona solids. Thanks for the great start Sheila!

Sara said...

Isn't granola so great and easy?!! Love it! The rulers would be wonderful as well;)

Karin said...

Judy in Michigan said...

Thanks for the great recipe. Your first quilt is awesome - your first?? Wow! I learned the old scissors and template way but that was before (or when they first came out) rotary cutters. I would just swoon (love that word) if I won all those rulers!! Thanks!!!

It's fun to see how our tastes change from first quilt to latest, isn't it? Loving those fabrics ... they'd fit in with my "latest" LOL! And thanks for the granola recipe ... I'm currently on the prowl for a good one, and have made a couple so far that the family has thumbs-downed. This one looks like it'll get a thumbs-up! Oh, and "Happy Birthday, Mom!" Hope she has a good one!

marilyn said...

Love a chance at all these great prizes. The blog hop is fun and I love seeing all of the new blogs. Thanks

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 inside my suitcase . . .

These rulers are quite intriguing. I love your first quilt. I did learn the old fashion way. I remember when those "pizza cutters" came out ... I thought they were really weird. Now I can't live without them or my rulers!

Diane said...

Thank you for sharing your quilt story in the Blog Hop AND for the granola recipe and fat quarter giveaway!

Broke one of my long rulers recently, so I'm really, really interested in the new rulers!!

Just love those colors! Thank you so much, Jackie. Now I'm off to try to see if I have the ingredients on hand for your granola. Yum.

Now that hubby and I are aging (we didn't do that until just recently ahem), this is the type of cereal we usually buy. I think it would be great to make my own! Thanks for the recipe. Our favorite part of the cereal is the clusters and this is nearly ALL clusters! LOL. ok enough about that. I think these rulers are a great idea and hope to win them...an ever sharp blade is music to my quilting soul!

sharon said...

What a great new concept! Love the idea of spending less on replacement blades, this = more money for the fabric stash! Also having more control when cutting would be wonderful and easier on the old arms!
Thanks for hosting this give away, Sharonj.

Jackie,

I started quilting way before rotary and quilt rulers were available, so can appreciate hearing your early experiences too! Love the idea that this new Sullivan ruler sharpens a blade as it cuts and is a non-slip type ruler. Way cool.

I also love your fabric bundle. Yummy.

Thanks for sharing your insights and this opportunity to win.

Sandi said...

I think these new rulers from Pat and Sullivan's sound fantastic. Would love to win but if I don't, I'm planning to buy them. :-) That granola looks just like the homemade granola that was served at the retreat we went to this past weekend. They were also selling bags of it after breakfast but now I can make my own. Thanks much!! The first quilt is certainly not the colors you feature now. :-)

soren2go said...

Wow! Something different from my usual oatmeal. Looks yummy and easy. Would love to win rulers or fabrics.

Lovie said...

Have to laugh and give my age away. I first started quilting the "old school" way, scissors and cardboard templates. And loved and embraced it when the cutters and rulers first came out. And now we have the longarm quilters, and the AccuQuilt system available. New is better, and I would love to win the NEW rulers.

Wouldn't it be great if we all could win, yes that would be a perfect world. All these wonderful recipes that are shared along with the giveaway is a bonus. And fabric too, maybe this is a perfect world after all!

Thanks for the granola recipe-it looks delicious! I hadn't thought about how the edge sharpening rulers work. Thanks for the hint about enlarging the photo. Now I get it!

Wow, great fabric giveaway too! I wonder if quilting would be as popular today if there were no rotary cutters and rulers?

That granola looks yummy! I totally need rulers like these. My rulers are so beaten up that it's about time I buy (or maybe win?) a new set.
