The Edge – Blog Hop

Posted on September 28th, by Amy in give away. 499 comments

Hi friends!  I was excited to be invited to participate in this blog hop hosted by Pat Sloan – Thanks Pat!Edge Bloghop with Pat SloanI’ll tell you about the rulers, but first I thought I would share one of my first quilts.  This is a little 27″ square quilt that I made for Emmalie when she was a baby.  It was the perfect size for stroller time and a nursing cover too –

Emmalie's Baby QuiltYou can see, that I folded the fabric to the front to bind it.  At this point I had a large cutting mat, but only a small 6″ ruler for cutting strips…I had the hardest time getting straight strips!  I didn’t know any better, I’ve added a few rulers to my collection since, but the little one is still a favorite for crosscutting.  I had read enough to know that strip piecing was handy, especially with 1 1/2″ strips/squares, but I wasn’t about to take on anything larger than a baby quilt!  This little quilt is often used still for stuffed animals and baby dolls.

Do you have a favorite size ruler?

My favorite for general cutting is 6 1/2″ x 24″ – that way I only need one fold in my fabric.

Sullivans RulersThese Cutting Edge rulers are really neat.  They have a sharpening edge on one side, so as you cut, you also sharpen your blade on your rotary cutter!  (Why didn’t I think of that!)  It’s not as quiet as usual, but you know that you are keeping your rotary cutter straight, and sharpening your blade as you cut!  I think my favorite part – was the lack of slipping!  The ruler stayed where I needed it, with just one hand…instead of my entire arm.  Do you do that too?  It can be challenging to get a straight cut when it slips.  I’ve learned to make do with what I have, but not anymore!  Testing the ruler fun and a pleasure – Thanks again Pat!

You can read more about the rulers on Sullivan’s website, they are available for purchase in Pat’s shop, or I Have A Notion.

To win a set of rulers – comment on each of the posts participating in the blog hop!

Finally, Pat asked that we share a recipe with you!  I have one dinner that is requested above all else – Alfredo with chicken and broccoli.  My kids all eat it, Joe and I enjoy it and there’s always left overs for lunch or another dinner if you play it right!

Alfredo with Broccoli & Chicken


2-3 broccoli crowns, just the florets
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
2 Cups milk
1/2 Cup parmesan cheese – I use the best quality possible, it makes a difference.
1/3 Cup ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 lb of pasta – fetticcine is traditional, I like to use mini-penne so I don’t have to cut it on the kids’ plates.
2-3 chicken breasts, cut into bite size chunks

To make the most of my time I have worked out my little system –

First – wash and cut the broccoli and get it steaming over medium heat.

Second – get water boiling for pasta (most pasta takes twice as long to cook here at altitude)

Third – cook the chicken in olive oil – be sure to season well – salt & pepper/garlic, or whatever you like.

Fourth – once the chicken is cooked through I transfer it to a large casserole dish with a lid and put it in the oven on warm. As other bits finish I add it to the dish! That way it doesn’t have to finish at the same time – that stresses me out.

Fifth – Start the sauce! Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, and cook it for a quick minute while stirring. Gradually add milk, whisking to blend. Cook for about 15 minutes or until it starts to thicken – you need to stir/whisk constantly. Next stir in your cheeses, salt and pepper, and cook until the cheeses melt. Taste, and remember it’s going over pasta, I usually add a touch more salt.

Usually while the sauce is cooking the broccoli and pasta finish, and I have added them to the dish in the oven. When the sauce has finished I pour it over the top and stir to combine! I love this dinner with a salad, but love that I already have veggies in the mix for my kiddos.

I hope you try it and enjoy it! Let me know what you think.


Just to be clear – You must leave a comment on all of the posts to be eligible to win the set of rulers.  I will update my post each day if you come back here to keep hopping!

Good Luck~

    How fun. I might be the first or the second depending how long I take in writing this :-) but boy is that recipe enticing. I love, love, love alfredo sauce. I also love new rulers! I think probably my 6 x 24 inch ruler is used the most but then comes the 6 x 12. I also have a 6 1/2 inch square ruler which I have mangaged to shave the edge off so it might be perfect timing for Cutting Edge rulers! Happy Blog Hopping Everyone!

    These rulers sounds like a must-have. I hate when the ruler slips, its so difficult to hold it in place when cutting large strips.

    The non-slip feature would be excellent in addition to the sharpening. I go through some contortions to keep the plain jane ruler from slipping away from the cutting blade. Going to give the recipe a try, thanks!

    It always tickles me to find another Amy in the quilting world! Love your first quilt! Such a happy one for a your daughter. I’m sure she treasures it.

    My current favorite ruler is one that is 24 x 8 1/2 inches. It can cross cut fabric in 6 1/2 squares, which comes in very handy.

  22. 22
    Debbie Gallett says:

    I will definitely try that recipe, it sounds good. My favorite size rulers are the 6×24 and the 3×18 and the 6 inch square. Those are the ones I always have out.

    Crystal Knight says:

    I would love to win one of the new rulers. My first quilt teacher explained all about rulers. I think my favorite is the 6 x 6. I can square my blocks up to the correct size and they don’t look so wonky. Receipe looks yummy.

    Janet says:

    My favorite ruler is my 6.5 x 24. I need a new one and have been putting it off. I have sliced a little of my edge off in the middle. These rulers look awesome. Your alfredo recipe sound wonderful. I’m going to have to give it a try too.

    I love my 6×24, but it does slip and I do curse at it occasionally! I can’t wait to try these new rulers, I tend to put off replacing my rotary blades and I don’t like my little sharpener unit – doesn’t seem very effective. And I *hate* actually changing the blades!
    Thanks for the recipe, we all need a new chicken recipe periodically don’t we?

    Your recipe sounds delish – even though it’s only me and my husband at home now, we get the occasional weekend visit from our kids. I know they’d all love this. And I would really love a dual purpose ruler – one that doesn’t slip as I’m cutting, and sharpens my blade as i cut! perfect!

    I think your first quilt is precious. My first quilt was teeny tiny log cabin – with the idea that we would learn precision also. But my first bed quilt was an Irish Chain – it’s a great pattern! Your recipe sounds yummy and yes, I will try it. I like the penne pasta also, but don’t have any little ones to cut any ways. Thanks, Amy!!

    Sarah Vee says:

    Thanks for the recipe, Amy. I loved seeing your first quilt and the ‘short’ ruler story. These new rulers *sound* fabulous. You’re the second one to comment on the sound. The no slip would be great – especially when you get to the very end of that 24 inch strip and then there’s the little wobble that ruins the cut! Thanks for participating in Pat’s hop! HOPe to win!!

    My favorite size ruler is 8 1/2″ x 24″. I went to the extra width to help with slipping (more surface area). I can’t wait to try one of these rulers. I hope I’m the winner. hehe.

    Well, I’ve not found the right alfredo recipe yet, but this one with the ricotta might make all the difference! I find mine a bit dry and just not very flavorful…I think the ricotta must add to the moistness of the dish. As soon as I think to buy broccoli, I’m giving this recipe a try! Thanks.
    Don’t the rulers sound like a great idea! Sharpening our blade every time we use it? That will certainly appeal to quilters who go through too many of those blades in my opinion.
    thanks for the opportunity.

    I would love the chicken and broccoli dish, but hubby is so picky I don’t think he would eat it, you know the type meat and potatos man..and corn….Your first quilt is cute, mine was a disaster..I can’t believe how many people still have their first quilt…mine is long gone.

    I sure would love all of those rulers. The sharpening is a great bonus. The ruler that I use the most is the 6 x 12. Small enough to handle comfortably and big enough to cut most sizes.

    The rulers are an incredible device. I hate having to spend the extra money on new blades for my cutters–cuts into the money squirlled away for fabric! Also the fact that they do not slip is amazing! I would love to win them! Thanks for hosting this give away, Sharonj.

    Hi Amy,
    I actually thought your first blanket was cute and loved the pasta recipe. It actually doesn’t look like it has as much fat as most recipes. It’s a must try! Hope I win the rulers. I really-really-really need them!

  150. 150
    Francine A Warren says:

    I am always so amazed when I see such small squares. I’m still trying to conquer 4″ ones. Lol. I am going to work on a stip pieced quilt with 2 1/2 ” squares soon! AS to my favorite ruler- the first one I could afford was a 6″ x 12″ & I was in heaven as I has been trying to cut & measure by either using a tape measure or making a template- somehow the squares were never right that way. Right now I love a small ruler 1″ x 12″ I using it to square off blocks, but I do it sitting down with a lap mat. Works really well. Happy Blog Hop! Thnaks for sharing!

  151. 151
    Lynda M says:

    Thanks so much for hosting the hop. This is my first. Love your recipe and have copied it down.

    Cute quilt, love the ideas on the rulers (and the non-slip!) and the recipe sounds delish. I make something similar, but like the idea of ricotta instead of cream. Wonder if it’s less fat? Hmm, have to try it. Thanks.

    What could be better together – quilting with new rulers and new recipes. Just add chocolate and you have a match made in heaven.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

    My favorite ruler is the 6 x 24. I can cut most things with it. I also use my 15″ square ruler a lot – sometimes as a portable table to lay my quilt blocks on to move them to the sewing machine.

    I am here for day two of the this great giveaway. My favorite ruler is 61/2″ x 12″, because I tend to be cutting small pieces of fabric. I am copying the recipe and just might make it tonight, it sounds delicious!

    Your recipe sounds divine! I am excited to try these new rulers!

    Ann says:

    Great post. I have a similar broccoli pasta with a light tomato sauce. Instead of steaming the broccoli, it gets thrown in with the penne to boil for the last 3 minutes of cooking. Saves one more pot.

    Garilyn says:

    The rulers sound wonderful!
    The recipe does too, but I’m afraid me and only 2 of my kids would eat it…that’s half of us. The others would either go without or I’d have to make something else…ah, the joys of motherhood and a picky husband!

    Melissa says:

    Thanks for sharing one of your first quilts! Isn’t it so funny to think back on the silly things we did when we were first learning to quilt? I hand wound my bobbin because I didn’t know that there was a way to wind it on my machine!!! LOL We’ve come a long way baby!

  183. 183

    I would love to win those rulers! You asked about a favorite size? Well, I have ONE ruler, and it is an Omnigrid 3×18. I taped 3 little pieces of sandpaper on the back to keep it from slipping and it seems to help. I REALLY need those rulers. And the recipe looks yummy!

    Marcia Gilbreath says:

    Self-binding is still perfectly acceptable! Maybe not in a show, but for a quick gift that will be well-used. Chicken Alfredo is one of my go-to recipes, too. No broccoli, though–I don’t care for it. Thanks for the recipe!

    I would love to have a ruler that doesn’t slip! I’m pretty new to quilting and only have one ruler, it’s 12″x4″ and it’s hard to get straight cuts when you have to fold your fabric several times.

  244. 244
    Judy says:

    Hi Amy My favorite size ruler is also the 61/2″x 24″. That is
    the one that would do the most sharpening in my quilt world!

    dare venture to anything more difficult. Your chicken alfredo
    will be tried at our house. thanks

    my favorite ruler is the 6 x 24. I love being able to cut an entire width of fabric without folding. But I have a smaller one that I keep bymachine with a small mat for the quick cuts while i’m sewing. I am not in sewing room, but I think it may be 6 x 10?

    Thanks for the recipe. It is my husbands favorite meal and I don’t have a good recipe. He orders it out ususally

    Sandy N. says:

    That recipe looks yummy! I may have to give that a go this week. If I can get my lazy behind to the grocery store for supplies!=)Those rulers look pretty awesome! My favorite ruler has always been my 12×12. It was the very first ruler I ever bought and it seems to be the one that gets used the most.

  257. 257

    The rulers look and “sound” wonderful. I do not like it that rotary blades are rather pricey and anything to extend the life of them sounds AWESOME!

    My 14-yr-old doesn’t care much for salads, but she does like spinach and strawberries. Yum! Yours looks yummy!

    Donna says:

    This blog hopping is dangerous to my waist line. I had plans for pumpkin bread when I discovered apple pie made like a pizza and now Alfredo with broccoli and chicken. Perhaps if I add a salad it will all be good. This blog hopping is fun. Happy quilting and blogging!

    My favorite ruler is the 6″ x 12″–I can do most things with it, have other sizes too, but find this is the one I use most. Thanks for sharing the Chicken and Broccoli recipe, I copied it to my recipe file and will try it soon. Joan

    I did the same thing on my first binding, glad I found an easier way to to it. My favorite ruler is the 18″x6″. It just seems easier to maneuver yet gets the job done for most cuts.

    Hi Amy,
    Oh your dinner recipe looks so yummy!!
    My favourite size ruler used to be the same one you like, the 6 x 24. It is MIA with all the moves over the last 4 years, but the one that I have and is showing its use well is a 6 inch square. It has a bit of a ‘curve’ to the straight edge now, but it has served me well for squaring up blocks and cutting up some of those scraps LOL.
    Thank you for sharing your first quilt with us, and your generosity!

    I love your little quilt…it is so colourful. I used to like the 9.5″ ruler the best but since I bought the 6.5×12 ruler that’s now my new favourite. It’s just the right size to square up blocks and handles so easily. And I’d love to get some of the new Edge rulers.

    Leslie Schmidt says:

    Yes, I have a terrible time keeping the ruler from slipping! I am in awe of people who seem able to take a swipe with the cutter and everything stays in place. The size ruler I use most frequently is the 8 1/2″ by 12″. It seems to cover most of my needs, once the longer pieces are cut.

    Hi Amy!

    I love alfredo sauce but have never been brave enough to try making myself. This sounds like something I could do. Do you like turnips? I make au gratin turnips using the same sauce recipe only use cheddar cheese. My kids thought it was home made au gratin potatoes. These are the same kids that thought homemade cookies were chips ahoy zapped in the micro wave.

    My favorite ruler is the 6 1/2 x 12 1/2. I store my fabric on “fabric organizers” and both allow me to cut my fabric without unrolling the yards I tend to buy. I do have to make sure I put it on the card straight to begin with. I think these rulers sound great if they work. I’m sure going to try one.

    Lovely recipe, Amy! I like to use different pasta shapes too.

    I brought my backing to the front for my first quilt too! It is really common on antique quilts. I’m not sure when a separate binding became popular.

    My favorite size is also the 6.5 x 24 ;) I’ve had mine from the very beginning and it’s lines have rubbed off over the years… I could so use a replacement and one of these I believe is JUST the one! Sharpener on the side is Brilliant!

    Love that your quilt is still loved – even if it is by dolls and soft toys:) The colours still look so fresh against the white don’t they. My most used ruler is the 6 x 24 which for some reason is also the one I most frequently misplace – considering it’s size this always surprises me!!! Ciao

    That recipe looks wonderful. I can’t wait to try it.
    These rulers have to be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
    Cutting blades are so expensive and don’t stay sharp long.
    This is a fun hop. Love all the first time quilts.

    Hi Amy,

    Playing a little catch-up today because of the long list of things that didn’t get done during the week. In fact, I wonder if I got any of them done? Yesterday, I finally got ready to move out of the house about three. Vehicle wouldn’t start. Cranked like crazy, but no firing. Called AAA, fearing the worst, as battery is less than a year old. Waited until 4:30 for AAA guy to get there, and when he did, he hooked up all kinds of clamps and wires and meters, and at the end of it all, said my battery was bad, and to high-tail (where does that phrase come from) out to Sears and get a free new battery.

    So I did, with only one stop — at our great artisan bakery, where they only make raisin bread on weekends, and they ALWAYS have pecan bars. Had to get two bars, just because it was that kind of day. Parked at the far end of their little parking lot and left the van running while I ran in (muttering under my breath (please, somebody steal this thing). Got to Sears, waited over an hour to have somebody even look at it (they had three or four guys standing around writing orders, but only one tech on duty (smart, huh?). Well, after their repeat of the performance of the AAA guy, they said my battery was just fine; that it was a connection in the harness that was loose and they couldn’t tighten it because they didn’t have the right TOOLS.

    You can tell they need a quilter in there (maybe Pat could clone herself one more time) to keep them organized. Or if all of the quilters are busy, they at least need to hire a woman.

    Thanks for listening to me whine (even if you skipped reading the whole post

    Hmm, I’m curious how the rulers sharpen your cutter. I guess it just needs an edge of a material harder than the blade?

    Looks like a very lovely set, I hope I’m not too late to enter into the contest. :)
