I can’t wait for you to watch Angela Walter’s video.
Her machine quilting tools have been so popular that we haven’t been able to keep them in stock – but they are NOW!!! In this video, Angela shows how to use Slim, one of the characters in her arsenal of tools. The entire demo is done with a Cut Loose Press™ pattern created with the Creative Grids® Ultimate Flying Geese Tool.
The magic happens on this Cut Loose Press™ pattern – Wild and Free featuring fabric by Tula Pink and solids by Kaufman.
What a great series of classes! Learn how to use the flying geese tool, make the table runner, and then machine quilt it yourself. Talk about a trifecta!
What is a double wide? If you talk to the gals at Me and My Sisters, it’s NOT a trailer! They have taken the traditional 18-degree Dresden and doubled it to 36-degrees. Why? You only need half as many petals (10) to create the look of grandma’s quilts with the added bonus of creating a secondary star design in the middle!
Check out some of the 13 plus projects in this book, starting with their version of a hungry, hungry caterpillar.
What a fun, easy demo! Why not order them in for your Holiday Open House?
Tis the season for evergreens – and this is reflected in our top 100 patterns! All of these trees made the list!
Crazy Christmas Trees from Cut Loose Press™ is the perfect family craft project! None of the seams have to match so seam allowances aren’t really an issue. I’m making this with my grandchildren this weekend!
These paper-pieced trees come in two sizes. The smaller version is the perfect door decoration for an Advent tree for your favorite little ones.
Piece Fall colors on the other side to make this tree reversible!
And then there are the three-dimensional versions by Aunties Two and Poorhouse Designs.
All of these projects are simple and can be done in time to deck the halls!
Need demos for that holiday open house? We’ve got you covered. There are excellent Cut Loose Press™ patterns that feature Creative Grids® rulers that will have your customers making multiples for gifts as well.
Capiz Lanterns looks like a modern version of our favorite tree ornament. It is oh so simple to make with the Oval Always tool by Karla Alexander.
Deb Heatherly creates these ornaments with the 4″ version of the Log Cabin Curvy tool.
And just look at the variety of trees….
Jean Ann created this tree by combining the 8″ log cabin trim tool with the curvy version of the same size.
These trees were all made with a 30-degree angle.
Karla Alexander’s Crazy Christmas Trees has been in the top 10 patterns since its release!

Deb Heatherly will be offering a Take and Teach at this Market explaining her popular Grids Girl program which has two new offerings!
All About the Grids is a darling 47-inch square quilt gives you an opportunity to teach a different ruler every month – and share the additional books and patterns that support the tools! This quilt features the Creative Grids®Cat’s Cradle; Strippy Star; Turbo 4-Patch; Ultimate Flying Geese; 6″ Log Cabin and 8″ Square on Square.
Grid-dle Me is a 48-inch square that features the Creative Grids® Cat’s Cradle, Turbo 4-Patch, and Ultimate Flying Geese Tool featured above PLUS two sizes of the Pineapple Trim Tool and a 6″ Curvy Log Cabin. Deb has created a whole new way to use the Pineapple Tools that will have your students wanting more!
Both could be taught in a series of three or six classes or are the perfect projects for a retreat! The patterns will be arriving this month. The rulers are available now!
Meet the newest members of the Creative Grids® angle family. We now have a sixteen inch 10-degree angle. Sew together 36 of these 10-degree triangles to create a complete circle; 18 to create a half-circle, or 9 to create a quarter-circle. Create Fans, Dresden Plates, etc. up to a finished size of 31-1/2 inches. Check out these companions by Christina Cameli. The Magic Triangle Table Topper would be a great afternoon class. She pieces the fans with the 10-degree angle and then trims them into a 50-degree shape to create this stunning hexie!
Mesmerized is stunning in these gradations!
We also have a shorter version of the popular 15 degree – this one is easier to manipulate when working on smaller projects. Erin Underwood has created some darling patterns to get you started. Check out this mini version of her popular tuffet! It can be made with either the 15 degree or 22 1/2 degree. You decide on how many petals you prefer.
This Cut Loose Press™ pattern includes a table runner AND placemats. I love the edges that are finished with rickrack – just like grandmas!
This double Dresden pillow is embellished with buttons and rickrack. What is not to love???
Or create this spectacular version of a Mariner’s Compass by combining 15 and 22 1/2 degree angles.
I love this! In fact, I love this so much that I am teaching it this weekend!
This is a Karla Alexander design – and is SO her! A little wacky, a little wonky, and a whole lot of fun! This combines every aspect of a great pattern:
It looks hard but is so easy and so forgiving – anyone can do it!
It takes just eight 10 inch squares and eight 11″ x 14″ rectangles of background so it is easy to kit.
It makes a great demo.
AND, it is a Cut Loose Press™ pattern so it is affordable. Crazy Christmas Trees #CLPKAL009
It uses her ruler. Creative Grids® Spider Web Quilt Ruler #CGRKA6
Saturday I am making this in Fall colors – but kitting it for Christmas as well. After all, who can stop at just one! An added bonus? This runner is 17 1/2″ x 40 1/2″ so if I make four of these, I have a great throw!
