New from Cut Loose Press

While it looks like these blocks are set on point, it is an illusion. Susan Nelson makes this oh sew simple! Then, it is all about color placement to create the secondary pattern. What a fun way to use her Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper XL. The pattern includes fabric requirements and cutting instructions for two sizes.

5 Stack by Leigh Headington is a charming beginner quilt. Sewing strips together and then sub-cutting makes this quilt fun and easy project. These units are then alternated with large rectangles, the perfect place to show off your favorite fabrics.

5 Stack

Create the center star points with the Creative Grids® Ultimate Flying Geese Tool or insert your favorite four-inch block. Then add two rounds of logs with the Log Cabin Trim Tool. The corner triangles are trimmed evenly thanks to the diagonal line that is printed on the Folded Corner Clipped XL. Each round is trimmed after the oversized triangles are added so they are perfect every time!

Don’t you love the secondary block design that is created when corner posts are added to the sashings? What a great way to learn new techniques with your favorite rulers.

New from Edyta Sitar

Edyta Sitar is hosting a Sew-Along featuring her newest pattern, Frontier. This 32-1/2 inch wall hanging would be a striking table topper or wall hanging. I can just picture this as a “headboard” over her Alaska quilt. Now that is bringing some Martha Stewart into your life!

All of the shapes can be cut and trimmed with just one ruler. The New Creative Grids® Alaska Ruler, designed by Edyta Sitar herself, cuts a multitude of shapes in a variety of sizes. Cut 45° wedges, diamonds, squares, and half-square triangles all with the same ruler! The instructions include how to make a basic kaleidoscope block as well as an Alaska block in four sizes from 9 to 16 inches.

The ruler also cuts all of the shapes needed for these top-selling patterns that are already in stock.

Consider doing Frontier as a sew-along. With just nine blocks in the project, why not start a weekly sew in your shop. There is plenty of time to get it completed in time for the holidays. And once they learn how to cut and sew the blocks, they will be ready to move on to a bigger project!

New from Krista Moser

I was lucky enough to audit the first class that Krista taught for this pattern after it was hot off the presses. In her words, snowflakes with six sides are the obvious perfect choice for a pattern showcasing her Creative Grids® 60 Degree Diamond Mini Ruler. But the way she cuts the shapes for the snowflakes is pure genius!

Snowflake Lane

Simple and classic, the Snowflake Lane quilt comes in two layouts: lap/twin or wall size. You’ll be pleased how simply these snowflakes go together and surrounded by the pieced buffalo check background, it makes a dynamic statement. Make it in the classic black and white lodge look, or change it up with icicle blues. The pattern includes cutting, piecing, and pressing instructions designed for the best possible outcome. You’ll gain confidence piecing angles without the daunting task of a difficult project. Finished sizes: Twin 63in x 78.5in & Wall Size 45in x 45in.

If you made her Buffalo Lodge Tree Skirt last year, this is the perfect companion!
