Do you look at the brand of your rulers? If you have used any of the Creative Grids rulers, I bet you have. Creative Grids are only available through independent shops, like your Local Quilt Shop & favorite online quilt shop. This means you will have a partner to help you learn how to use your specialty ruler. The staff at your LQS are there to help you be the quilter you want to become. I hope each of you have a partnership with an LQS, but we know it’s not always possible. Especially if your town doesn’t have one!
What makes Creative Grids so special? Not only do they partner with independent designers to produce rulers (Go Indie!), the rulers are easy to read & come with built in grips so your rulers won’t slide around on your fabric. Since the rulers are made as a partnership with indie designers, they usually, but, unfortunately, don’t always come with instructions on how to use them. Again, the partnership with your LQS will help guide you.
In the event you haven’t tried one of the MANY Creative Grids rulers, Creative Grids and Checker Distributors are giving away “Scrap Crazy 6” ruler sets to TWO of our lucky Scrap Quilt Challenge winners! Create 6" finished blocks with the four templates in this set. All of the pieces can be cut from those odd sized scraps in your stash or stack fabrics and cut multiples in a matter of minutes. The tips are trimmed when needed so the pieces sew together perfectly every time. Then, embellish the seams with your favorite decorative stitches and threads. Make an entire quilt or sew them into a scrappy, decorative border.
Speaking of the Scrap Quilt Challenge….we are just a couple days away from the deadline! I hope you are busy binding or taking your pictures!
