Christmas Throughout the Year – Part Two

The holiday season is all about  food – and the gifts can be as well!  These gifts can add that awe factor as well.  Invited to Thanksgiving dinner?  Why not give the hostess a table runner for a hostess gift?  This Triangle Frenzy Runner is a great way to showcase a beautiful stripe and can be completed in an afternoon!  It only has 14 pieces so you can definitely make more than one!










Giving a kitchen related gift?  Why not include a set of place mats?  Here are two great options!  Take Four uses four fat quarters so it is easy to kit and fast to make!  Inside Out Mats feature a no binding technique that means a set of four can be completed in an afternoon!










Baking cookies a family tradition?  Why not make matching aprons for everyone?  I love this version which comes in Mother/Daughter sizes and is lined.  Why not make the lining a light fabric?  Then everyone can sign each other’s aprons as a lasting memory!










Do you give gifts of candy?  Why not present it in a Fat Quarter Pop-Up?  The gift that keeps on giving!










Think outside of the box!


Triangles with a Twist!

I haven’t been this excited about a pattern line in a LONG time!  All three patterns look like you worked really hard – but since they are created with the large Creative Grids 60 degree ruler they go together in an afternoon!

The Triangle Frenzy Runner, for instance, only has 14 pieces.  Since they are cut from a stripe, however, kaleidoscopes are formed.  The ruler is rotated 180 degrees as the triangles are cut from the stripe, so in this case, eight triangles are cut with the blue as the base and six are cut with the blue as the point.  There is very little waste.



The pattern even includes a second, bonus pattern.

The Triangle Frenzy Swirl looks very modern – and has a secondary pattern with three twists which gives the illusion of a braid.  This table runner would look at home in a modern setting as well.

Or, make a hexagon table topper – once again with a twist!


Item #AED159  Retail $10.00

All of these projects were sewn with the 12 1/2″ Creative Grids ruler.  Let the fabric work for you – and complete any of these projects in an afternoon!
