Get to the point with Creative Grids new Triangle series that just arrived! That’s right – they are all in stock and ready to ship… Karen Montgomery designed two of the rulers in this series, and over-achiever that she is, designed a row a month sampler so you can teach your customers how to use them!
Item #TQC331 Retail $14.00
Karen’s program begins with four- patches so you can cover basic rotary cutting and piecing with your customers. This also gives you an opportunity to explain the program to your customers. Notice that she used solids from Timeless Treasures. Solids are so popular right now – and an added bonus is that many of you already have a collection of solids in your store! Isn’t it nice to have a program that isn’t tied into a fabric that could be discontinued tomorrow! That is what happens when you have a program designed by a shop owner FOR shop owners! Karen knows what you need – and what your customers want! But, feel free to put your own twist on it. I can see this in prints as well. The pattern comes with instructions for all of the rows on individual sheets. This gives you the opportunity to spoon feed the rows and ruler demos to them in kit form.
By the time the program is ready to launch in January, there will be a series of Cut Loose Press patterns to support the rulers as well. (For more on CLP, read the companion article.)
This 90 degree ruler is 8 1/2″ high – which means you can make quarter-square triangles that measure up to 16″!
Item #CGRT90 Retail $18.95
This quilt will be a CLP pattern as soon as it is quilted. (CLP patterns are always tested – no virtual patterns allowed.) This quilt was created in a day from nine 16″ finished quarter square triangles which were cut from strip pieced units. How easy is that??? I simply sewed a strata of 1″ finished green strips and 2″ finished white and black strips. The seams were pressed in one direction so they nested together beautifully! You will love it!!!

The same technique can be used with any of these rulers. Wait until you see what we have planned for the T45!

Karen also designed the Perfect Rectangle.
Item #CGRTMT3 Retail $17.95
This ruler is featured in this darling table runner that features any 12″ square, but the instructions include cutting requirements for the Ohio Stars. The name “Any Twelve Will Do” is definitely appropriate!
Item #CLPKM0003 Retail $3.99
Karen also designed a quilt for The Quilt Company featuring this ruler. Stars in Check uses the entire 9 1/2″ of the ruler to create large blocks so this queen size quilt goes together very quickly. This tessellation is fun, easy and fast!
Item #TQC330 Retail $8.50

The Keystone Table Runner combines both rulers – the CGRTMT2 and the CGRTMT3. This pattern would be just as stunning in two colors – and oh so easy to kit!
Item #CLPKM002 Retail $3.99
The Keystone quilt under The Quilt Company name is striking in shades of blue and is so fun, you will want to make more than one!
Item #TQC329 Retail $8.50
I am writing a book with Landauer that features Dresden Plates that will be out the beginning of next year. I can’t wait to share the patterns using this ruler. I can make 20 round or pointed Dresden Plates in less than five hours – you will love it!
This 45 degree Kaleidoscope and Dresden Plate ruler rocks! To see a preview of some of the quilts, visit: http://youtu.be/hqu1XQqLOG8
Item #CGRTKAL45 Retail $17.95
The rulers are available now as well as Karen’s CLP patterns. The more complex patterns by The Quilt Company will be available by the end of the month. And, by the first of the year, the entire series will be in place. Prepare your demo schedule accordingly!
