Many of you already have these top-selling Creative Grids® Tools. Check out these latest patterns that showcase the potential of these tools.
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.

They routinely get requests to bring it back, and have decided it is time to run another limited release of this design.
