Fat Quarter Friendly Quilts

Fat quarters are the most popular and versatile pre-cut fabric. Folded up neatly at the store, they call to every quilter and ask to be brought home to your stash. Random fat quarters can be pulled together to make amazing “planned scrappy” quilts. A fat quarter bundle, on the other hand, is a great way to sample an entire line of fabric without waiting at the cutting counter. With more possibilities than other pre-cuts, it can be difficult to imagine a design and get stitching–but not for these talented designers! Whether it’s a curated collection or random fat quarters you’ve been collecting, there are 12 creative designs you can turn to again and again.

Dresden Plate Quilts

Three different quilts in one book – all made with the same Creative Grids ruler (Item #CGRTKAL45), one 40 pack of 2 1/2 inch strips, and your choice of background, accent, and binding fabric! Dresden Plate Quilts includes three different variations of the Dresden plate block: one pointed, one round and a split for three times the fun! This 16 page full color booklet gives step by step instructions to make all three.

At this writing, all of these books are in stock so order today!

A Fall Feast

Hank and Harriet combine courthouse-steps log cabin blocks and curvy log cabin blocks in a variety of colorways to create these adorable pumpkins. They are a part of a trio of patterns that, when combined, showcase Fall in all its glory!

Hank
Harriet

Since the templates for Hank and Harriet are oversized, they are not printed on the pattern. Instead, you can download them from the Cut Loose Press™ website. Since they are formatted on 8-½ by 11-inch paper, the templates can be printed directly onto any fusible available in sheets such as EZ Print Featherlite, no tracing required! Or add your own personality and draw your own.

Both of these patterns require the Creative Grids® log cabin and curvy log cabin trim tools for 4″ finished blocks.

Cornelius is the third member of this trio.

Cornelius combines courthouse-steps log cabin blocks in a variety of colorways to create this cornstalk that was definitely knee-high by the 4th of July. This one is made with just the Creative Grids® Log Cabin Trim Tool for 4″ finished blocks.

Cornelius

Since the blocks are all trimmed with the Creative Grids® Tools, they are all exactly the same size so these projects go together like magic. They are like putting together jigsaw puzzles. Once you do one, you will want to do them all!

New from Cut Loose Press

While it looks like these blocks are set on point, it is an illusion. Susan Nelson makes this oh sew simple! Then, it is all about color placement to create the secondary pattern. What a fun way to use her Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper XL. The pattern includes fabric requirements and cutting instructions for two sizes.

5 Stack by Leigh Headington is a charming beginner quilt. Sewing strips together and then sub-cutting makes this quilt fun and easy project. These units are then alternated with large rectangles, the perfect place to show off your favorite fabrics.

5 Stack

Create the center star points with the Creative Grids® Ultimate Flying Geese Tool or insert your favorite four-inch block. Then add two rounds of logs with the Log Cabin Trim Tool. The corner triangles are trimmed evenly thanks to the diagonal line that is printed on the Folded Corner Clipped XL. Each round is trimmed after the oversized triangles are added so they are perfect every time!

Don’t you love the secondary block design that is created when corner posts are added to the sashings? What a great way to learn new techniques with your favorite rulers.

Quick Easy Projects

These newest additions by Betty Gormick are sure to make you smile. And, talk about instant gratification – all of them can be made in an afternoon!

Boo To You Door Hanger

These three Cut Loose Press™ patterns require templates that are too big to fit on a traditional Cut Loose Press™ pattern, so we decided to try something new! The full-sized template sheets are accessed through a link included in the pattern. Since they are the right size, you can print them right onto a product like Print N Fuse (Wonder Under cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets so it can be run through a printer). No tracing is required!

These projects are great choices for classes or kits. Why not include the pattern, templates printed on Print N Fuse, and fabric in a kit. Just remember, you can only give them the templates if they purchase the pattern – talk about great customer service!

Scalloped Borders

Krista Moser, the brilliant designer from The Quilted Life, has designed a Scalloped Tool with Creative Grids®. This baby is a game-changer!

Just look how adding a gently scalloped border to a panel turns it into a work of art!

This quick, easy, but impressive baby quilt can be completed in just a matter of hours. The Cut Loose Press™ Simple Scallop Baby Quilt pattern #CLPKMS009 shows how to turn a standard 24″ x 40″ panel into a stunning quilt. Would you like to add this border treatment to a different sized panel or quilt? Not a problem! This pattern focuses on the technique of creating scalloped borders the no-math way with the Creative Grids® Scalloped Template.

Are you a visual learner? Again, we have you covered! The pattern includes a link to a video tutorial that shows exactly how Krista created the quilt shown. And, since you just need a panel plus 3/4 yard of two different fabrics to complete the quilt, it is oh sew affordably.

But let’s talk more about the tool…

Creative Grids Scallop Template

Add that awe factor to any quilt by creating a scalloped border. The tool includes three sizes of scallops plus a corner unit. The small size is perfect for borders that are 2 to 5 inches in width. The medium scallop is ideal for 4 to 8-inch borders. And the large scallop works for borders up to 12 inches. That’s right – you can now add borders up to 12″ wide guilt-free because they are now a design element!

Since you are creating this design element with paper templates, they can be spaced or overlapped as needed to fit any length of the border. Don’t you love built-in fudge factors? Hint: Design and mark the border before quilting so the scallop element can be showcased with quilting (and the machine quilter can attach straight sides to her frame). Then use the tool to trim the curves and bind with a bias binding.

What a great class or demo choice – and both are in stock now!

Folded Corner Companions

Did you know that all patterns made with the Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper can be made with the new Folded Corner Clipper XL? Whichever size you have, why not give these Cut Loose Press™ patterns a try?

This Maple Leaf Table Runner combines the Creative Grids® Kitty Cornered Tool and the Folded Corner Clipper or Folded Corner Clipper XL. Each leaf is cut from a 10″ square and the stems from another. You can’t get any easier than that to kit!

Deb Heatherly used this tool to create two classics. X Marks the Spot is created with (34) 10-inch squares and what Gudrun Erla calls the four B’s – background, borders, binding, and backing. At 61″ x 70″, this quilt goes together quickly and is the perfect size for a throw.

X Marks The Spot

The Starry Nights Table Topper measures 36″ square. The units are strip-pieced before cutting so the tip goes together very quickly.

Begonia from Cut Loose Press by It’s Sew Emma is an excellent choice to perfect your skills when using the Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper! Use it to square up half-square triangles BEFORE pressing. And then use it to create the pointed units in the begonia block. It really is that easy.

All of these patterns are Cut Loose Press™ patterns so they are available on-demand and printed with the shop name. Place your orders now.

The Folded Corner Clipper XL

Twice the size of the original Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper, the Folded Corner Clipper XL can span a 10-inch block and cut wide, mitered borders.

Creative Grids Folded Corner Clipper Tool XL

No need to draw pencil lines when prepping your favorite blocks such as snowballs, flying geese, diamonds in a square and cornered rectangles! Since you have to trim the corner anyway, why not trim it first, and use the raw edge as your seam guide? AND… since the corner was trimmed with a straight edge, your bonus triangle is ready to sew into a Half-Square-Triangle block! Or, use the 45 degree angle to create binding or mitered corners.

Use the additional printed angle line to square up and trim the corners from any pieced block. Adding triangles to the corners of a pieced log cabin block, for instance, is now easy and accurate!

Cut Loose Press Reflections

Use the Creative Grids Folded Corner Clipper XL to make large half-square triangles from 10-inch squares and sub-cut them to make this stunning table runner. Then make the leftover triangles into slightly smaller half-square triangles for the placemats. Combine them on your table to add that awe factor to any décor. Note that there are two different layouts for the placemats. I like the light center since it will be covered by a plate and the prints will show!

Cut Loose Press Barn Raising Lite

This modern take on a traditional log cabin barn raising quilt goes together very quickly since there are only 48 blocks. The asymmetrical layout adds that awe factor. Since the units are cut with the Folded Corner Clipper XL before sewing, there is no need to draw diagonal lines or trim tails!

Barn Raising Lite

Cut Loose Press Bauble Chain Quilt

Doesn’t this remind you of the beaded chains we all loved in the 70’s? The baubles are cut with the Folded Corner Clipper XL after the strips are sewn into sets so it goes together very quickly. The cutaway corner triangles are then sewn into the smaller units so there is no waste of fabric. The background is the perfect place to showcase some dramatic quilting!

Set a Great Table

Carolina Moore has created two Cut Loose Press™ patterns that feature Creative Grids® tools and Gypsy Quilter® Pre-Cut Battings – with stunning results!

Are you ready for all the summer BBQs and picnics? Your hot dish will take center stage when presented in this Americana Casserole Hot Pad!

Americana Casserole Hot Pad

This stars-and-stripes motif is created using the Creative Grids® Strippy Stars tool (CGRDH2) by Deb Heatherly. This pattern uses the Casserole Dish Hot Pad Pre-Cut Batting and Insulating material (TGQ104), which has two layers of batting and polyester and metalized layer to help keep your hot dish hot. It perfectly fits a standard 9 by 13 inch casserole dish. With just three fabrics, this pattern would be simple to kit with a red, white, and blue fabric from your shop’s color wall. But, why not kit it in Fall and Winter holiday colors as well? After all, stars are always in season and these would make great hostess gifts. A great class option. Students can learn how to use the Strippy Star Tool and actually finish the project in class!

These 2 for 1 plate cozies are darling and simple to make! They feature the Pre-Cut Plate Cozy batting from The Gypsy Quilter® (TGQ102) which is microwave safe, with fun piecing using the Creative Grids® Kitty Cornered Ruler (CGRDH5) by Deb Heatherly.

2 For 1 Plate Cozy

The pattern is written so that two plate cozies can be made with two contrasting half-yard-cuts of fabric. Since you can make four plate cozies from one package of pre-cut batting, you may want to double your fun, or in this case quadruple the fun , by buying four half yard cuts of fabric. Students could easily finish a set of these in class AND learn how to use the Kitty Cornered Tool. We all love instant gratification.

Diagonal Seam Tape

This notion created by Cluck Cluck Sew is flying off the shelves and we just got in another order so it is in stock!!!

Diagonal Seam Tape

I was teaching a class on Saturday and someone thought that you put this on the diagonal of the fabric – not true! It sticks to your sewing machine – right in front of the feed dogs. The red line aligns with your needle, the blue lines are the sewing lines – 1/4″ away from the red line.

A roll is 10 yards – and since you just need a small piece – it lasts a good long time! When you are ready to remove it, it comes right off – no pesky residue!

Half-square triangles have never been easier – no more drawing lines. But remember, this works just as well when sewing snowball blocks! I can’t wait to try it when I am making my Geese in the Cabin blocks – a Cut Loose Press™ Plus pattern (#CLPPLUS001)!

Adding those triangles to the corners just got a whole lot easier! This pattern showcases the Creative Grids® Log Cabin Trim Tool for 10-inch blocks (#CGRJAW10).

Geese in the Cabin

Meet Cut Loose Press™ Plus. This pattern has six full pages – when a pattern is just too good to fit on one page – even if it is front and back!

This Cut Loose Press™ Plus pattern features a technique for making Geese in the Cabin blocks from the log cabin blocks created with the Creative Grids® 10-inch Log Cabin Trim Tool Duo by Jean Ann Wright (CGRJAW10).

Geese In The Cabin Cut Loose Press Plus

We have even filmed a video showing how easy it is to transform a Courthouse Block style log cabin created with the Creative Grids® 10-Inch Log Cabin Trim Tool Duo into an entirely new block. AND, you are welcome to share the video!

Once you have created the blocks, twist and turn them in a multitude of ways to create your own masterpiece. The pattern includes suggestions but there are many more possibilities.

Geese In The Cabin Cut Loose Press Plus

Since all 36 blocks are exactly the same – and the magic happens when you twist and turn them – the yardage requirements are the same for every version!
