The Sue Daley Rotating Cutting Mat is her most popular item and is excellent for Fussy Cutting. If you have a project that uses clear acrylic templates than her rotating cutting mat is one of the best inventions there is! The cutting mat allows you to rotate your fabric more precisely while using a rotary cutter.
Sue Daley Needles are her exclusive line of sewing needles. Needles and thread are so hard to choose, but she offers 4 different sizes on her website. Her needles are very similar to Milliner Needles which we recommend to quilters of all levels. Our favorite size is #11 which can be purchased on our notions page on the homepage of TheDIYAddict.com website.
Another popular notion is the Sue Daley Glue Pen. It is very similar to the Sewline Glue Pens or Fons and Porter Glue Pens. We like the traditional Sewline glue pens as they are significantly cheaper than Sue’s (sorry Sue!).
Sue Daley English Paper Piecing Supplies is the ideal terminology if you are looking to search any site or search engine for her notions. Her notions provide ease and comfort for all EPPers and are even required in some cases! A lot of stores, not only TheDIYAddict, carry her exclusive notions line.
Sue Daley Milliners Needles are the exactly the same as Milliners needles. We offer Milliners needles in our store which you can find on the homepage.
Sue Daley Applique Glue is very very similar to Sewline Glue and we suggest the pens to save money.
At the moment, we are unaware of any Sue Daley books that do not include her design pattern guides for each of her patterns. Maybe she will author an English Paper Piecing book in the future!
Sue Daley Templates are clear, have ¼” seam allowance, and come with marking holes. This style is ideal for beginning or advanced quilters. It’s also great for fussy cutting your favorite Alison Glass, Tula Pink, or Sue Daley Fabric! In Sue’s patterns, there are varying amount of shapes, and some of her quilt patterns come with a complete set of acrylic templates, while some do not. The reason is that some quilts require a large number of certain shapes, hence a template is necessary or ideal. In other patterns, some shapes only occur 5 or 6 times, so having a template for them would not be ideal or necessary (it would also cost a lot more!).
Several of Sue Daley’s quilts not only include needle turn applique and English Paper Piecing, but paper piecing as well! Paper piecing is a combination of hand sewing and machine sewing. In our product pages above, we state which quilts require which sewing methods in the description. Just because a quilt requires all 3, does not mean it’s going to take longer which is a major concern for quilters who hand piece!
Sue Daley Quilts Kit are some of our favorite. There are several quilt kits available for her quilts which use her Riley Blake fabric line. At the moment, TheDIYAddict.com does not sell Sue Daley Quilts Kit, we only sell her patterns. Two of our favorite quilt kits are incorporated into her ‘Round We Go’ pattern which consists of the ‘Brights’ and ‘Pastels’ from her upcoming fabric line; Sundance.
Sue Daley Tutorials are famous due to their sheer amount and the high quality production. They dive into topics that consist of quilt specific tutorials, getting started with English Paper Piecing, to discussing how to use her rotating cutting mat.
We discuss each of her tutorials below.
