Prepping for Valentine’s and St. Paddy’s Day

Yes, this is the perfect Valentine decoration but why not make it in wedding colors for a bridal shower? The wedding party can sign the hearts and the guests can sign around them. What a great memory of the day!

Crazy Hearts #CLPKAL011 from Cut Loose Press by Karla Alexander.

Don’t you love the name? In Crazy Love #CLPKAL014 from Cut Loose Press the angles doesn’t matter. The sashing strips can be adjusted by trimming them after the letters are pieced so they are all the same height.

What a great shower or wedding gift. At 18 x 53 inches it would make a statement hanging above a bed!

Creative Grids Spider Web Quilt Ruler


It is all about fabric placement. Lovey #CLPDLB018 by Lisa DeBord combines five different color combinations of a courthouse steps block to spell out LOVE. Since each round of logs is trimmed before the next round is added, perfection is guaranteed. Why not spread some love this year?

There is a little bit of Irish in all of us so why not celebrate it? The leaves of these Tumbling Shamrocks #CLPQIN001 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!

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.
