Favorite Tools

You may have noticed this little tool in the photograph I posted yesterday.  It was given to me by a quilting friend whose husband made it.  It is simply a block of scrap wood with a hole drilled out that can hold an inexpensive seam ripper.  It is very useful when separating chained pieces and always makes me smile when it use it because it reminds me of Jeanette.

I have a new favorite “non-quilting” quilting tool as well! 

This air filled disk is really made for doing balance exercises, but it also serves as chair cushion that helps keep my back and shoulders from getting too stiff when I sit for long periods.  Don’t you just love discovering little tricks that make quilting more fun!
