Creative Grids Itty Bitty Eights are here!

You asked – we answered – well, actually Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings answered…but we were smart enough to listen….so here goes….

Many of you were looking for a ruler with defined eighth inch markings.  And you wanted to be able to cut precise pieces when working in miniature.  When Lisa approached us about doing a ruler series for minis, she provided the perfect solution – Itty Bitty Eights!

A 3″ x 7″ Rectangle:

CGRPRG1

Item #CGRPRG1  Retail $14.95

A 6″ Square:

CGRPRG2

Item #CGRPRG2  Retail $15.95

The eighth inch lines are represented with dashed white and black markings – which show up on light AND dark fabrics.  The whole inch markings are dashed as well so you have total visibility when placing the ruler on the fabric.  Precision cutting is guaranteed.

Lisa has designed two miniature quilts as CLP’s that are darling – and are a great way to introduce your customers to the new markings on these rulers!

Lisa has over 20 patterns that use mini blocks that work beautifully with this ruler.  Here is just a taste:
