I am so super excited to announce what I have been working on since Fall Market!!! This Spring Market is going to be in Minneapolis…we are going to be re-naming it “Mini”-apolis“!!!! Its all about the MINI!!! Little quilts will be busting out in the PG booth…but also 2 new Creative Grid Rulers to work with all those mini blocks!!!
This 6 inch Itty Bitty Eights Square Ruler designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings features easy to read 1/8 inch markings. The black and white dashed eighth inch markings show on both light and dark fabrics. The dashed 1in grid lines ensure accuracy when cutting pieces for miniature quilts. Refer to the black diamonds when cutting 1/8” strips; the white diamonds when cutting 1/4″ inch increments. The Creative Grids exclusive grip holds the fabric while cutting. $14.95
I don’t know if you can see.. but all the black and white diamonds have the actual markings like 1/8, 3/8, 5/8, 7/8″ and the white 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4…But the best part is every line is a dashed line! You can see your fabrics at every point! No more wondering…am I on this edge of the line or that side of the line…now we can see! Also do you notice the ruler is not 6 1/2″? Now that is bad if we want to square up a 6 1/2″ block, but we already have a ruler for that!!! No mis-cutting because of that 1/2″ -you know what I am talking about here? Now…on to my favorite of the two…
The 3″x 7″…this is the one I use the most…I like how it fits in my hand…easier to wield around those mini pieces…with all the same features as the 6″. We still need the 6″ because sometimes we have to cut a 4 1/4″ square and then sub cut it twice for our minis…But the most shocking thing that happened to me is…when I didn’t have the rulers with me… like when left it at the lakehouse…and I had to use my other Creative Grids…I missed them!…I actually was bummed I didn’t have them…like…how am I going to survive this without those dashes!!! Cutting is CRITICAL with minis because just a thread can make a huge difference in a 1/2″ finished square or a 1/4″ inner border like Winter Star has…I also use them when NOT making minis, as I still want to cut as accurately as possible! So even if you don’t make quilts with tiny, tiny pieces…these two rulers are still VERY useful and I promise you these will become your GO TO rulers when cutting minis or sub cutting larger pieces in your normal sized quilts…Here is the Official write-up on this one…
This 3 inch by 7 inch Itty Bitty Eights Rectangle Ruler designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings features easy to read 1/8 inch markings. The black and white dashed eighth inch markings show on both light and dark fabrics. The dashed 1in grid lines ensure accuracy when cutting pieces for miniature quilts. Refer to the black diamonds when cutting 1/8” units; the white diamonds when cutting 1/4″ inch units. The Creative Grids exclusive grip holds the fabric while cutting. $15.95
Now I WANT you to BUY these rulers from me…as I designed them and I am telling you about them!!! There is a strict pricing policy on them so there are no “deals” or discounts by anyone, anywhere! So my offer to you-if you purchase BOTH rulers from me there will be a designer special “gift” to you and HEY! did I mention my new Winter Star pattern…shown here under both rulers…If you really love it order the KIT too…but you will not need the pattern if you are buying both rulers…HINT, HINT… ORDER HERE!!!
As you can tell I am over the top excited about these two rulers and will be working on a couple more sizes too! Creative Grids are the absolute best RULERS in the quilting world and it was a pleasure to work with them!!! Thanks Cam and Penny! I want to ROCK Creative Grids and show them how much we needed MINI rulers!!!!
