Rollin, Rollin, Rollin...

Now that you have the theme song to Rawhide in your head let me show you this little tool that will forever change how you do quick pressing...

The Clover Roll & Press came out at Fall Quilt Market last year and while I did order it for the shop I was skeptical on how well it would work...well let me tell you...I LOVE this little tool.

I decided to do a comparison between the Roll & Press and an actual iron...

Here's the tool..it's not too big and the curve of the handle makes it easy to use



I started off setting my seam



A little press to open up my piecing, check out how my finger fits perfectly on the top of the Roll & Press.


So you tell me...which block was done with the Roll & Press and which one with the iron..
can't tell can you?



Now I don't recommend this to make a whole quilt, while I think you can I also think your hand would get tired from finger pressing the seam. What I found using this tool from previous finger pressing tools out there, this one doesn't distort the seam or fabric, it doesn't stretch the fabric and you can tell from this block the fabric was cut on the bias. I think this tool has potential with traditional paper piecing and english paper piecing and anywhere you need a good finger press.

This review was not sponsored by Clover and all opinions are mine...cause y'all know that I don't mind sharing what I learn 😉 .. You can pick up the Roll & Press in the shop or online because we want to make it easy for you to pick up and start.. Rollin, Rollin, Rollin.

Until Next Time

Be Kind

  1. I just use a wallpaper seam roller that I already have.

    1. The difference between the wallpaper seam roller (which is great) is this one is tapped towards the outside of the roller so the pressure is only on the seam area
