Blooming Bias Baskets by Kari Carr of New Leaf Stitches

Not long ago, Kari sent me a product to try. It’s her Clearly Perfect Angles tool (also known as CPA) and I love it!

Clearly Perfect Angles is a clear piece of specially marked vinyl that sticks to the bed of a sewing machine/acrylic sewing table with static cling. There is nothing sticky—no adhesive or residue.

This cool tool eliminates the need to ever mark a line when sewing a 45º angle. What a time saver! Clearly Perfect Angles works with three different 45º angle techniques.

• Sewing 1/4″ from both sides of an (imaginary) diagonal line across a square (above) OR
• Sewing diagonally from corner to corner across a square that is larger than the Clearly Perfect Angles vinyl

Kari calls herself a recycled home ec teacher, and it’s clear she’s a teacher at heart. She has several helpful ways you can see how the CPA works.

Clearly Perfect Angles retails for $10 and you may find it at your local quilt shop. There are also specials on her website: Buy two CPAs for $18 or three for $24. You could get one for each of your machines or go together with some quilty friends to save a little.

This is a great tool and and great time saver. And now to the giveaway! I have one brand new Clearly Perfect Angles to give to a lucky Quilty Pleasures reader. Leave a comment here by midnight Friday, June 22 and we’ll pick a random winner. This giveaway is open to all readers no matter where they live!
