Egg-Straavaganza by Deb Heatherly is the perfect way to celebrate the season! The eggs are made with the Creative Grids® Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool for 4-inch finished blocks. Make it your own by changing colors or appliquéing letters or names on each egg.
The rickrack adds the awe factor and gives a decorative touch. The pieced border also adds to the Spring feel of this piece.
All you need is four coordinating fabrics to make this sweet quilt designed by Sarah Fulks, and that includes the background fabric. The instructions are written for an over-sized throw but you can add or delete blocks to make the quilt of your dreams. You may even learn a new technique for creating half-square triangles along the way using the Creative Grids® 4-in-1 Triangle Ruler.
Alaska – English Garden quilt pattern features Edyta’s newest fabric collection but looks wonderful in any color combinations. It is perfect for a block of the month project and uses just 6 fabrics for the entire quilt. The pattern includes paper templates to complete the project.
All of these shapes can be cut with her Alaska Ruler from Creative Grids® as well.
This Sunrise Scraps quilt showcases a beautiful applique block surrounded by simple pieced blocks. All you need is 42 light and 42 dark ten inch squares plus the fabric for the applique block.
Checker Board features Edyta’s new fabric line or would be a stunning scrap quilt.
The patterns are due to arrive the end of this month so place your orders now.
From Cut Loose Press® by Rachelle Craig, Havenwood is the perfect beginner class or project! Just about every inch of the fabric is used in this quilt. Grab forty-2 1/2-inch strips (or cut your own), a background fabric and you are ready to go. Kitting not required!
Turning every other block creates the modern off-set look that gives this quilt its style.
The cover quilt is made with Pearl Splendor by Benartex. Or, cut your own strips with the Creative Grids® Stripology XL Ruler.
The 2-1/2″ slits are marked with squares – can’t get any easier than that! What a great way to use up scraps.
Deb Heatherly has released several patterns that are scrap-friendly. These patterns are created with simple, beginner friendly techniques and don’t require any specialty tools.
Stars Over Franklin is a great scrap quilt! Just (16) 2-1/2-inch strips create the star points in this quilt and give it that scrappy look. Add your favorite accent fabric, in Deb’s case, gold, background and borders to complete this generous 70 x 70-inch quilt. It is the perfect quilt to learn how to use the Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper or Corner Clipper XL for more than bindings. The instructions include an alternate method, however, so it is not required.
Just (34) 10-inch squares is all you need to create this generous 61 x 70-inch quilt. It also is an opportunity to use the Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper or Corner Clipper XL for more than bindings. All you need to add is the four B’s: background, borders, binding and backing.
Just 12 fat quarters or 3 yards of scraps, plus the borders, binding and backing is all you need to create this stunning quilt.
Deb lives in the Great Smoky Mountains and says that in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, this was called a postcard quilt because quilters used a postcard for the template to cut the pieces for this quilt. Don’t you love that little bit of history? Incorporating these units into the middle border adds the perfect finishing touch!
The Creative Grids® 3 ½” wide rulers make cutting these pieces easy as pie! That ruler comes in three different lengths: 12 1/2″; 18 1/2″ and 24 1/2″.
Christine is releasing two new patterns this month that feature Creative Grids® rulers.
Firesong is the perfect pattern for your 10″ squares! Two options included for two different looks. Both options finish at 64″ x 74″, the perfect lap size quilt. I’ve included a pic of the back cover because it is stunning in blues as well.
Sometimes you need a pattern to show off all your fabrics without complicated piecing – and that’s what you get with Melody! No inset seams – an added bonus! Two sizes: Baby (using a jelly roll) 40″ x 48″, and Lap (using 1/2 yards) 60″ x 72″. Once again, the back shows a different colorway that is simply stunning.
The rulers are in stock and the patterns are expected later this month so place your orders now.
What a great scrap quilt! Just 12 fat quarters or 3 yards of scraps, plus the borders, binding and backing is all you need to create this stunning quilt.
Deb lives in the Great Smoky Mountains and says that in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, this was called a postcard quilt because quilters used a postcard for the template to cut the pieces for this quilt. Don’t you love that little bit of history? Now the Creative Grids® 3 ½” wide ruler make cutting these pieces easy as pie!
What a great scrap quilt! The quilt is made with just two alternating blocks. Since one of those blocks is the hourglass or quarter-square triangle, the alternating pieced four-patch block looks like they are set on point. This adds a dramatic element to the quilt that is oh sew easy to achieve!
Another great scrap quilt! Just 12 quarter yard cuts or 3 yards of scraps, plus the four B’s: background, borders, binding and backing is all you need to create this stunning quilt. Since the points are made with the Creative Grids® Strippy Star Tool, they float so every point is perfect, every time. The Creative Grids® Cat’s Cradle Tool is used to make the nine-patch variation in the center of each block. What a great way to learn how to use both tools and make an heirloom quality quilt along the way!
Don’t you love the way Deb has extended the star points into the middle border?

Now that makes a statement!
Snails Trail Mardi Gras is a variation of the ever popular Snails Trail Al Fresco (CLPJAW68). In this version, the diamond shapes are created with the Creative Grids® Half Rectangle Tool so each diamond adds even more interest and movement to the finished quilt.

All you need is eight assorted 10-inch squares to create these two placemats and table runner. This stunning example of stained glass uses a technique that is pure genius. Clover fusible bias tape creates the stained glass affect so there are no tiny strips to sew into the blocks! This dramatic look is easy to achieve, even for a beginner.
Since the blocks are cut from ten-inch squares, rotary cutting is fast and easy so you can move onto the piecing in a matter of minutes.
If you would like to make an entire quilt, check out CLPCAM026.
Both projects require the Creative Grids® Scrap Crazy 8 Template Set.
The Clover Fusible Bias Tape comes in black and gold:
What a great gift for that special man in your life or to honor one that has passed. Daddy’s Ties, designed by Deb Heatherly, uses the Creative Grids® Kitty Cornered Tool (CGRDH5) to create the tie. Setting it on point brings the block to center stage. The tie and inner border are cut from one tie.
Deb has produced a YouTube video demonstrating how to prepare the tie to make this project. The link is shared on the pattern.
If you would like to make an entire quilt, check out CLPDHE038.
Both projects require the Creative Grids® Kitty Cornered Tool:
This quilt is all about color placement. By coordinating the fabrics in adjoining blocks, a star is born! The blocks alternate wide and narrow logs to add even more drama to the finished project. Since the Creative Grids® Log Cabin Trim Tool Duo can trim both widths of strips, the entire project can be done with just one tool!
Once again, this quilt is all about color placement! Changing the fabric location in just two different blocks creates the stunning secondary pattern. The flying geese pieced corners accentuate the pineapple design and gives the quilt a modern twist.

This stunning example of a stained glass quilt uses a technique that is pure genius. Clover Fusible Bias Tape creates the stained glass affect so there are no tiny strips to sew into the blocks! This dramatic look is easy to achieve, even for a beginner.
Since the blocks are cut from twenty, ten-inch squares, rotary cutting is fast and easy so you can move onto the piecing in a matter of minutes.
This pattern requires the Creative Grids® Scrap Crazy 8 template set.
This quilt is a great way to use up leftover 2-1/2-inch strips. Combine them with some solid fat quarters to create blocks that showcase the wonky design. The inserted squares in the border add a modern look to an already striking quilt. The pattern includes cutting instructions for the logs to best utilize the fabric. Since the wonky log cabin blocks finish to 10-inches, you only need to make 12 blocks so you can finish the entire project in an afternoon.
This pattern requires the Creative Grids® 10″ Wonky Log Cabin Trim Tool.
This mini quilt is all about color placement. Reversing the traditional lights and darks in the pineapple block accent the pineapple design. Placing the same fabrics in adjoining blocks creates the pattern. And the white space created when it is all sewn together creates a backdrop to showcase some amazing quilting! Since the strips are 1-1/4-inches wide, cutting a 2-1/2-inch strip in half vertically is a great way to use up those leftover strips in your collection.
This pattern requires the Creative Grids® Pineapple Mini Tool.
The strips were cut using the white line down the center of a Creative Grids 2 1/2″ wide rectangle.
