Yes, we are all gearing up for Market – and I love giving you a sneak peak at what is coming! Rita Fishel is a multi-talented lady who writes books for AQS; designs and demonstrates rulers for Creative Grids; owns a shop; and designs patterns under her shop name – Creations Sew Clever.
This Market, she is releasing seven patterns that feature the series of templates that she designed for Creative Grids. These templates are unique because all of the shapes can be cut out of 5″ squares. When these cut units are sewn together, the blocks measure 5″ so they can be combined with 5″ squares so the design possibilities are endless.
Snowballs Chance features the Snowball Template (CGRF2) and the Half Square Quarter Square Template (CGRF6) along with the 5″ square (CGRFFQ1). And as always, you’ve got to love the name….
Item #CSC006 Retail $9.00
