Moda Blockhead…Block 23!!!

 

Block 23 already!!!  Why does it just seem like it was just my turn??? I just love taking simple blocks and adding to them…a simple 8 pointed star and…I added four patches in the center and the corners… Click here to print out the pattern…Block23LB_WinneconneStar

I had just enough time to do one block…but will catch up with the scrappy version later when there are not so many deadlines…we have our warehouse sale this weekend and I am teaching Tuesday and Wednesday (today)…I made them Chicken Dumpling soup tonight(this is Monday)…I hope they like it!!!

The question of the week:   What is your favorite brand of rulers?  And why do you prefer that one? 

After quilting for 20 years of quilting and owning many many rulers…I prefer the Creative Grid rulers…when I wanted to design a ruler I went to them with my idea and they were totally “onboard”…I now have 3 rulers currently with them 5″x15″, 6″x6″ and 3″x7″…why do I like these rulers?…so simple…everything is a dashed line…no solid lines…I can SEE where my fabric is…and…those 1/8″ markings…all there so.. no more counting hash marks for 3/8” or 5/8″…then last but not least…the famous built in no slip grips (see those see thru circles?) …If you need one of these  you can buy them  HERE or see our whole selection of CGR rulers HERE   I can’t cut with out them…I will soon be working on another size?  Any of you have these already? Thanks for hanging out this long and listening to me “talk” about CGR rulers, I appreciate your time and hope you enjoy making my block this week…

Go check out everyone else’s blocks too!!! See what rulers they like!!

    I bought your set of rulers earlier this year and I love them. I own one other CG ruler, a large square. When I started quilting I bought Trudie Hughes rulers, but as they wear out I am replacing with CG. I really like the no slip circles.

    My favorite ruler in one with orange lines. I love it as it’s easier on my eyes. All of those bright yellows are just too much.

    Love the block and the rulers!
    I have all three sizes–in fact, I just blogged about them again in my most recent post. They are truly indispensable!

    My favorite ruler is the Creative Grid also. I love that I can actually see the markings. Thanks for this block. It is another of my favorites.

    I purchased your rulers, love love love them. Waiting to see what other size you will be offering.
    Also, I am in love with your triangle papers. I started using them a couple of years ago on a pattern I was making.
    I tried three different brands of triangle paper and I found yours to be the most accurate.
    Thanks for your time and generosity .

    I have all three of your rulers and use them all the time. Lining up and cutting is so much more accurate…along with the starch you can’t go wrong. Can’t wait to see your next ruler.

    I love my Itty Bitty Eights Ruler. My first Creative Grids Ruler and I am sold on it, so easy to see the fabric edge and it doesn’t slip.

    I love your creative grid rulers. I have the Itty bitty ones but still need to buy rectangle ones. Will be a great investment. Will get alot of use out of them.

    I have the first two Itty Bitty Eights rulers. Love them. Such a handy size and no slipping. They are my favourite small rulers. Well worth the money.

    Ok I’m late to the table but I love, love, love my PG Creative Grids Rulers. I only have 1 problem with them… I keep having to replace them as my quilt buddies like them to and I end up giving them as gifts. Thanks for a great product Lisa.
