I can’t believe how much I love/have to use my rulers that I designed with Creative Grids…I have lots of other rulers from creative grids…but once you get used to using these with all the lines being dashed…there’s no going back…I am constantly looking for my rulers when cutting…where did it go?…who used it last?…this is at the working studio…I asked Amy to go get three more sets from the warehouse so every cutting station had one…I also know that some of you have 2 locations you sew at …the cabin and at home…or you leave a set of supplies in the car because your always going to quilting each week…right Shirley from CA?  I loved that she just keeps her quilting stuff in the trunk and aways has it because she has serval sewing events during the week.  So what I guess I am say is…if you already have these now may be a good time for a second one…or if you have 1 or 2 of them…it’s a great time to pick up the latest one…

So WHY are these so SPECIAL?…It’s really very simple…besides that fact that they have the 1/8″ markings and the dashed are different for the even and odds..SEEING your fabric at all time is the REAL reason for success of this rulers popularity.  Here is a closeup so you can SEE what I’m trying to say…see how we can see the actual fabric and it not under a line…because then we have to wonder are we on that side of line or are we in the center…with my rulers you can tell and when were doing some little piecing this ALL matters.  The ruler come in 3 sizes for now…3″x7″, 6″x6″ and 5″x15″, this one has the 3/16″ line for cutting wool stems and the 5×15 size makes it easy for you to cut your own 5″ charms…

If you also notice…I have no 1/2″ like the some of the other CG rulers…I have messed up cutting a time or two with those 1/2″…so not on these rulers.  Plus the big thing here is if you are not cutting accurately you cannot stitch accurately… this is a huge part of being accurate and things coming out perfect or darn near..everytime…I’m good with darn near…But we all are happy with things go together well…and this is another key to it.
img_9170So the deal with these rulers is they are price protected, they can’t be put on sale..But we can give you something if you purchase them…If you buy  one of the rulers we will include a new pattern called “Little Patriot”, shown here…coming out in February…so none of you have this one yet!!!img_9171I just reversed the colors and only used three prints here on this little “test” quilt….

If you buy the whole set of all three we are going to give you a 5″ charm pack plus the free pattern…that’s a $17 value.  itty-bitty-free-charm-1So I hope these little incentives are good enough for you to add this set of three AWESOME rulers to your tools…you will NOT be disappointed you did…but you may be mad when you can’t find it!!! Like me…lol…Click RULERS to go to the shopping site.

I loved reading about where you are from and if you have snow…Friday night and Saturday we had a nice long slow falling snow…today the sun is shining but its so COLD…very pretty though…nice to watch and bake cookies and stitch today!!!  I don’t know if I could NOT be where it snows…I know it can be a bother to some…but I can’t wait to try out my snowshoes I bought this year!!!!Here is the view from my sewing room…img_9172 img_9173

View from Jace’s  room …sorry about the screen..img_9175 img_9167

Nick took this pic after all his plowing/shoveling last night form up top our hill…this is the backside from the lake view…its so pretty  with all the snow!!!

So for your COMMENT TODAY TO WIN A SET OF RULERS IS… Those of you who have my rulers…let me know if they are what I say they are…those of you who don’t have them…confess and say you’ll get at least one to try after reading what everyone else says…I can’t be the only one who loves these!!!  Or if the budget doesn’t allow…say you NEED to win one!!! I remember what It is like to not be able to get  everything I want…I was a single Mom with three little boys at one time!!! And once you live though that it kinda stays with you…with a few exceptions here and there of course…

Congratulations to the winners of the SAS2 Lite Packs  here you go…please claim you prizes at  Send Amy your name and address and we’ll get the prize to you!!!                                      You have until 12-31-16

Nothing says Christmas more then a little snow on the ground!🙂 AND thank you for showing the Steam Lite 2.

No snow here in southeastern Ohio, but it is coming this evening. Love sas2. Have never ventured into wool applique, but I love hand applique and really wish I had someone to teach me how to do a nice looking blanket stitch by hand.

December 18, 2016 at 10:24 am
The only snow I’ll see is the snow on your blog ;o) Down in North Louisiana it is rare, but happens sometimes. Love the stitch you used on the wording!

Time to go pull my cookie dough from the fridge and roll out some star cookies!!! I only make stars…even though I collect cookie cutters…I love the ones with the wood handles!  Go Pack Go!!!  LB

    I have and use the Creative Grids Itty Bitty Eights Rectangle Ruler-3″ x 7″. I don’t know how i ever cut tiny pieces accurately before i owned this. It is a must have! If i were not on a widow’s limited income i would purchase the other two also!

    I have one of the rulers and admit they are so accurate, which helps alot since I am determined to finish some of the designs of yours which involve tiny triangles!

And you’re right about not remembering that 1/2″ seam on one end of some rulers. I made that mistake more than once. Thanks for the opportunity to win! P.S. – Love your snow on the website!

    Got to love rulers made by people whose quilt work you admire! I am pretty new to this world of quilting and have just begun to collect the needful things. I would dearly love rulers you designed, Lisa. A friend gave me your box of Frivols for my birthday and it’s top of the list after the holidays.
    Love seeing your new home in all its views. Gosh, what a Christmas this will be for your family.
    Hope you’re totally healed by now.

    I’ve never done tiny piecing before – but I’m hooked. They are a little challenging to get used to – but once you know where to look and how to measure using them they’re great. I use them for all my quilts now – not just the small ones. Great rules – keep them coming!

    Lisa, no snow in Northern Alabama, just freezing drizzle. I love your itty bitty rulers. My eyesight is bad enough, so with these rulers, I can see where I need to be.

Wish I could afford to buy those rulers. Especially the 5″ x 15″. Maybe I will be lucky and win one. Be safe and stay warm while out snow shoeing.

    You are so right about these rulers. I only have the 3″ x 7″, but it came in handy when cutting the small pieces for the Magic of Christmas quilt! I think Santa needs to buy me the set. And the bonus pattern just pushed me over the top. I am anxiously awaiting the kit for the large Patriot quilt kit to be available. I think it will be my valentine present to myself. It was -4 degrees this morning in the panhandle of Texas (very cold for us). And just have to add, when this post came I was reading over the recipe for the Old Fashioned Beef Barley Soup that you shared with the Magic of Christmas folks. I’ll be giving it a try this coming Thursday. Your house is absolutely beautiful in the winter wonderland!

    I purchased a Creative Grid ruler 5X12. I have tried to use it but it is very confusing to me. I went back to my old rulers. Yours look much easier to use but really can’t afford to make the investment again and then not use them.

    Your picture remind me of growing up in Elm Grove, Wisconsin. It truly is a beautiful state even if part of year is better spent inside. Merry Christmas to you, your family and staff. I love your work!!!!

    Here in East Central Illinois we were lucky to miss most of the ice & snow. Just have a few inches from earlier in week. But it is cold & windy. So have been inside most of weekend sewing (like I need an excuse!). I love Creative Grids rulers. I like the non slip that is built into them. And I love the idea of having the 1/8″ & 3/16″ markings. Thanks for the chance to win & the incentive you’re offering to purchase them!

    I have the 2 smaller rulers and honestly, they are my go to rulers unless I need a larger one. So now I’m debating about the larger one! They are all you say they are, Lisa. I love them mostly for miniatures because more and more designers are working with the 1/8″ in directions. If you don’t gave these, check em out!

    I don’t have the rulers but after reading your blog and the comments above, I sure would like to try them. I must confess that while cutting some fabric the other day I “read” the ruler wrong and was off on my cutting. Luckily I caught the mistake before sewing the block together! The markings on these rulers look so clear. Will have to wait until the budget allows.

    I made cut out cookies last night while the snow was falling which inspired me to make only mittens and snowflakes. I’ll decorate them using only red and white frosting. I finished snow blowing the driveway and now to sit and watch the Packer game… go Pack go💚💛💚

It would be nice for the holiday and sledding down our driveway though. I love my itsy rulers; I have the square and would be lost without it for squaring up my 1″ blocks! Would love to have the 3×7 and/or 5×15, but hard to find here in So OR. They are easier to read with these aging eyes believe it or not!

    I don’t have any of your rulers yet, but I am sure I would love using them if I won! I think they would be wonderful for making the miniature quilts I love to create! Yesterday I received the 1/2″ triangle papers that I ordered from you and can’t wait to use them. I was surprised at how quickly they arrived here in Arizona-great service!! No snow here in the Phoenix/Surprise area since it is 58 degrees here and sunny! We are always cheering too – Go Pack Go!!!

    I don’t have one of your rulers yet but I hope to win one and if I don’t I’ll definitly buy one because I love the 1/16 marks on them.
    BTW I’m from Munich, germany, here’s no snwo yet but the weather is turning and there’s ice on the streets. Perhaps it will be snowing on christmas.

    I have the 2 smaller ones but not the long one. Might need that. I use them all the time, especially when making things with small pieces. I too was not a fan of that added 1/2 inch bit and am glad you don’t have it one these. Stay warm!

    We have about 10″ here in Sarnia, Ontario Canada. It is -7 Celsius or 19 for my American friends. It’s beautiful with the sunshine today! I LOVE creative grids rulers. It’s the only one I use! I also teach quilt classes and I tell all my students how these ruler are far superior to any others …. grippers are better, the markings are super clear with all the extra measurements we need.
    Once they see and use one of mine, they are hooked! A girl can never have too many rulers, in different sizes! Hooray for CG and Lisa!,

    Plenty of snow and ice here in Maine. I want to say how much I love, love, love your home – wonderful attention to fine details. I purchased patterns in Maine and Virginia this past year. Hope to see you in Lancaster in March and I will shop for rulers there. Thank you for the opportunity to be in your drawing. Keep up your wonderful work.

    Oh, Lisa! Your snow is so beautiful!! I love the night pic. I Always look forward to our big snow events here in Southern Indiana. Some winters we have huge snowfalls and others almost none. We have crazy weather..Yesterday it was 64 degrees with thunderstorms and tornado warnings, and this morning it was around 20 and spitting snow!! Major Mother Nature mood swing.
    I also love my itty bitty rulers! They come in very handy and would not want to be without ’em. Enjoying your daily blog posts, as always. Thanks for taking the time to do them. You know we love it. Stay warm and enjoy the winter beauty!

    I have the little bitty eighths rulers and they were a god send with the magic of Christmas blocks. I will definitely buy more of these rulers and I especially love that they have little grippers built right in so no more rulers sliding while trying to cut fabric!

    I am sad to say I have “0” creative grid rulers. I have wanted to get one for a long time but already have so many rulers just couldn’t justify buying another one. The night view of your house is beautiful. Watching the Chiefs/Titan game on tv. It is frigid here in Kansas City MO. Thanks for sharing your knowledge, tips and patterns. I love your red/white Christmas quilt and plan to make it before next Christmas.

    I have been eyeing the Itty Bitty Rulers since they first came out, and I finally broke down and bought them all, along with $50 worth of fabric, so I could get free shipping. Thanks, Lisa! Merry Christmas!

    Yesterday we had 4″ of snow on the ground, today it’s 54 degrees. That’s NJ for you!! Kind of new to quilting so I have very few “needful” things… YET! But tomorrow is my 60th birthday so I’m thinking these would be a great gift to myself! Time to shop:)

    I have the first two rulers, of course, but I was unaware of the third one. I absolutely love these rulers–they help so much with accuracy, whether cutting for minis, or small parts for regular blocks.
    I definitely need that bigger ruler–and I LOVE the new pattern!

    I don’t have any of the itty bitty rulers but I think I need to remedy the situation. I would love to win them! If not, I really like the ruler special you’re offering…….

    This the the first time I’ve seen these rulers and would love to have them. Unfortunately my sewing machine has to go to the doctor and I need some major work done on my teeth so they are not in the budget right now.

    I do love those rulers, and they seem to not slip as much either. We got about 6″ of snow in central Maine Saturday, and rain and freezing rain Sunday. Makes for an ice skating rink in every driveway that was plowed right away. My hubby is out plowing now, and hopefully we can all stay upright when we walk on it tomorrow. Wish we just got the snow, it was looking so beautiful.

    Lisa, love the night pics after the snow fall! Such beauty and splendor.
    Looks like you and I have another common like. Snowshoeing. I just signed up thru LL Bean in Illinois on the 31st for a trail hike with my new snowshoes. Looks like enough snow this year.

  121. Elle Avatar

    I have your wonderful little 2.5 x 6.5 and it’s great for all small things. The rest of my rulers are old, Old, OLD! I’m sure I’ve shaved off edges and corners oner the years, and definitely need to replace them. So thanks for including rulers in your needful things!

    I currently have the old Omnigrid rulers which I’ve had probably more than 15 years. Until seeing these, I have not considered other styles of rulers but these will definitely be on my “want” list soon! If I won, it would be even better!! Thanks for the offer…

  123. Dawn Avatar

    I only have a 6×24 ruler. I do use it all the time. I live in Florida but if I had a view like you do, I wouldn’t mind living with the snow. Thanks for all the give aways!

    This is the first I’ve seen your rulers. I would love to have them. Unfortunately my sewing machine has to go to the doctor and I have to have major dental work done so they are not in the budget right now. Thanks for the opportunity to win these.

    I don’t have any of your rulers. As I replace my rulers I plan on replacing with Creative Grid rulers. I am lousy ar cutting because my ruler always moves on me and these I know don’t move as I have used them at retreats.

    I have always loved the Creative Grids rulers, but the Itty Bitties took them to a whole new level. The 15″ is my favorite. I especially love being able to cut those 3/16″ stems and having them all turn out even at long last. Thanks so much, Lisa for continuing to teach and share with us. Merry Christmas!

    I do have one of your rulers and I use it all the time. I love the markings and think I am cutting more accurately. I don’t avoid patterns with little size pieces anymore. Your home looks beautiful. I love the snow too and I like to guess what animal made those tracks in the snow!

    I love Creative Grid rulers but don’t own any of your small size yet but I have been leaning very close for some time. I’m not sure they’re in my budget this week, but more than likely soon! Love the snow on your page as I type. Probably the only snow I’ll see here in Central Texas!

    I have NOT tried one of your rulers, yet….they look pretty handy! A quilter can’t have too many rulers! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your snow pictures! There is just a little bit of snow where I live in OH, however, in what the weather forecasters call the “snow belt” (Up near Lake Erie) got DUMPED on!

    I got so excited about the snowshoes that I forgot to make a mention about the rulers. I prefer the smaller size when cutting tiny pieces. Starching the fabric and the tiny ruler assures an accurate cut. I do not own the 5 X 15 though, must put on wish list tonight.
