Creative Grids Spider Web Quilt Ruler

Maria used Scrap Tape from The Gypsy Quilter® to add a scrappy border.

No photo description available.

Scrap Tape is a wash away foundation that stabilizes the grain line of your fabric until it is sewn into your finished project. Make unique 5- inch strips using fabric scraps, using a stitch and flip method, then trim to size. Since Scrap Tape washes away with water, do not use steam or a starch/starch alternative while constructing your strips. Wash the stabilizer away AFTER the project is complete. One package includes 25 yards of 5in wide Scrap Tape.

New Sizes of Creative Grids® Rotary Cutting Mats

You asked and we listened. This Spring, Creative Grids® will add a rotating and a studio size cutting mat to their product line.

The Creative Grids® rotary cutting studio mat is self-healing and double-sided. This mat is a great choice as a table mat inside your quilt shop or studio. Our 5 layer cutting mat gives you two cutting surfaces and two separate layers of self-healing material. The second side is printed just like the first, doubling your cutting area. Both sides feature 1 inch grid with 1/8 inch markings. Work from either side of this studio sized mat. One set of numbers run across the 58 inch side and up the 28 inch side on the left just like our smaller rotary cutting mats. If you want to work from the other side of the table, the numbers on that side will be right side up doubling your cutting options. Numbers are printed inside of the grid area, giving you more grid to work with. 1/8, 1/4, 1/3, 3/8, and 1/2 yard cuts all the way up to 1-1/2 yards are marked for easy reference from both sides. 45 and 60 degree diagonal lines are included and start at zero in opposite corners. .

The Creative Grids® rotating cutting mat makes squaring up blocks up to 14 inches easy and efficient. Rotating mat is self-healing, and rotates a full 360º. Marked with a 1 inch grid that includes 1/8 inch markings along with 45 and 60 degree angled lines. White horizontal and vertical lines cross in the center of the rotating mat making it easy to trim embroidered blocks to size. Numbers are printed facing the outside of the rotating mat on all four sides with matching numbers across the mat. No matter which side you’re working from, you’ll always have a set of numbers to read that are right side up. Non-slip base gives you a stable cutting surface and is light-weight for taking along to retreats. This rotating mat is perfect for working with any of our Creative Grids® Trim Tools and Rulers. Simply trim, rotate the mat, and trim again.

New from Creative Grids®


This 12-1/2 x 18-1/2-inch rectangle ruler is the junior version of CGR1224 which is the largest rectangle on the market. This ruler is the perfect choice for those quilters working in smaller spaces but still like to do Home Dec projects, trim quilts, mark cross-hatching, and cut borders up to 12-1/2 inches wide.

Creative Grids Quilt Ruler 12-1/2in x 18-1/2in

Highlights:
• The black and white markings are easy to read.
• The 1-inch grid lines are marked in 1/8 and 1/4 inch increments.
• Use the easy-to-read, black numbers printed on white dots and the 1/4 inch grip sides to cut whole inches.
• Use the patented Turn-A-Round feature to cut 1/2 inch increments. Just follow the white numbers printed on black circles and 1/2 inch grip side.
• The 1/4 inch dashed lines printed on two adjoining sides aid in trimming seam allowances.
• The ruler also features 30, 45, 60, and 120 degree angles – that run in opposing directions..
• White horizontal and vertical lines are printed on the rectangle so the center of the ruler is easily distinguishable as well. Use these lines to fussy cut stripes and borders.
• The ruler slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, our exclusive grip holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts.
• Scan the QR Code printed on the ruler to view a tutorial of these features.

New from Cut Loose Press™ Patterns


Designed by Quilters Inspiration! There is a little bit of Irish in all of us so why not celebrate it? The leaves of these tumbling shamrocks are cut from a variety of 2-1/2in strips. The variety of prints adds depth and texture to the design by creating another design element. Adjust the size accordingly to make it fit your table or gift it to your favorite bloke as a throw! Either way, it will be treasured! The individual leaves are trimmed to 4 1/2″ and the entire shamrock are trimmed to 8 1/2″ so the Creative Grids® CGR4 and/or CGR8 are recommended.

Tumbling Shamrocks

Sunflowers Ala Lulu is a great introduction to a more artistic approach to quilting. This raw-edge appliqué project features layered squares to create the petals of the sunflowers. Add some leaves and bias tape stems and you can have this done in an afternoon! The Creative Grids® CGR9 is recommended.

Sunflowers Ala Lulu!

Welcome the newest Cut Loose Press™ designer, Beth Weigt! She teaches classes and wanted a simple pattern with larger pieces that would showcase the Creative Grids® Kitty Corner Tool (CGRDH5). Happy Kitty’s Table Topper features twelve-inch blocks, and since there are only four of them, it truly can be finished in an afternoon.

The Kitty Cornered Blocks are combined with a center square and rectangles like a nine-patch. Then they are separated by sashings and a corner-post which create a secondary center design. Choose three coordinating fabrics and begin!
