Tool Review: Qtools Sewing Edge

At Quilt Market, I received several samples of new products to try.  One of the products I received at the show From Quilt with Marci Baker, it was a product called "Sewing Edge" from her Qtools product line.  So, as I work on a new project I have decided to try it out on my machine.
The sample I received was small, I wished it was a couple inches smaller.  I did notice the true product strips are much larger and can be cut down to fit your machine. I did find the strip is very sticky, but not to stick so it cant be removed.  The strip when placed didn't move at all, like other products I have tried in the past.  Make sure you watch the video on her website or using your smartphone to scan the code for the video on how to use the product.
After the strip was in place and secure, I began sewing lining up the pieces of fabric next to the strip and sewing right along. I noticed that my fabric was lining up nicely and staying straight as I sewed the pieces together.  I really didn't have problems with my ends of the pieces becoming narrow, like was in the past, either.
The stitch lines came out nice and straight.
When looking at the price of the product on her website, it was not that expensive. The cost of the product was $8.95 for 10 strips.  I think they would last you along time with how sticky the strips are.

Overall, I like this product will keep on using this product for a while, wishing I have a couple of other pieces to try on my other machines.
