Swirly Girls Design
30 Degrees of Fun!
8:00 – 9:30 a.m.
Join your favorite Swirly Girls as they launch their new book and ruler. The 30 degree triangle ruler stands alone. 12 segments create a complete circle. This baby is so new that we haven’t released the images yet but it will be available by Market! There will also be a couple of CLP patterns to support it. The ruler can be combined with the ever popular Circle Savvy ruler. You may have noticed that the Circle Savvy has 30 degree markings on it – now they will show you what to do with them! Just picture piecing segments – and then cutting them into arcs! Need I say more???

Get to the Point!
Start your morning with Karen Montgomery as she shares how to use the Triangle Series by Creative Grids. Following the success of the popular 60 degree triangle, there are now five new angles to choose from!
Karen designed “To the Point” as a row of the month program so you can teach all of your customers how to use them too.
Item #TQC331 $14.00
The 8 1/2″ – 45 Degree Triangle…..
Item #CGRT45 Retail $17.95
There are also individual patterns and Cut Loose Press to support them! I like to use these eight to nine inch triangles to cut strip pieced units. Complicated blocks can be made in a matter of minutes! I sewed four 2 1/2″ strips together and then cut them all at once to piece this table runner in just a few hours! And since it is a Cut Loose Press pattern, it is soooo affordable!
Ring Around the Ruler
The 8 1/2″ – 90 Degree Triangle….
Item #CGRT90 Retail $18.95
In this case I sewed together 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ strips before I cut the units to create 16″ quarter square triangle blocks! Nine blocks make the entire 56″ quilt!!! Once again, it’s a CLP….
Key Lime Star
Kathy Seal designed Sherbert Punch. What a great strip pieced setting block for this quilt!
Rita Fishel Designed Ojo de Dios for a totally different look – and don’t ask me what it means….but setting the blocks on point and using solids adds a dramatic touch!
Renae Allen features great places for her signature machine quilting in this quilt…
The 9 1/2″ Triangle Squared….
Item #CGRTMT2 Retail $19.95
Karen has developed several patterns that feature this ruler…
This Triangle in a Square Baby Quilt is absolutely adorable and goes together very quickly. Don’t you love the mitered borders???
The 9 1/2″ Perfect Rectangle…
Item #CGRTMT3 Retail $17.95
“Any 12 Will Do Runner” is a setting for any 12″ block – but the star that is shown is included in the pattern just in case you don’t have any orphan blocks in your stash!
Stars on Checks combines four-patches and perfect rectangles to make a quilt that is quick and easy!
Item #TQC330 Retail $8.50
These patterns use the CGRTMT2 and CGRTMT3. Keystone is available in a table runner size as a Cut Loose Press pattern or in a quilt size from The Quilt Company…
Item #TQC329 Retail $8.50
The 8 1/2″ Dresden Plate and Kaleidoscope Ruler ….
Item #CGRTKAL45 Retail $17.95
I love to use this ruler to create eight petal Dresden Plates. Surf and Sand goes together very quickly with strip pieced sashings and borders.
Several patterns in my new book also feature this ruler…It will be shown at Market – and available June 15th!
Item #L113008 Retail $24.95
These school house sessions do not include sewing machines so they will be lecture only. You don’t have to bring anything – just show up with a smile and be prepared to have a good time!
Then, “Experience CGR” at the booth during the entire show!
