Creative Grids 60 Degree Mini Diamond Ruler

I Krista’s own words – and who could say it better: Up your quilting game with this charming pattern! Bumblebee Blossoms gives you a complicated look without tedious piecing. Gain confidence with angles and color placement. This quilt is constructed of three main blocks: the flowers, the bees, and the leaf blocks. Each one illustrates a different technique which are valuable additions to your quilting skills library. Use ombre fabric to get the most out of shade and value, or use scraps from your stash for an eclectic look!

Bumblebee Blossoms

Simple and classic, this table runner, placemat and tree skirt set is made entirely out of 2-1/2in strips. You’ll be pleased how quickly these go together. Use a variety of greens for the trees or make them all the same for a timeless look. The pattern includes cutting, piecing and pressing instructions designed for the best possible outcome. You’ll gain confidence with angles without the daunting task of a big project.

The Big Sky Bloom quilt is perfect for a little girls room, or as a cheerful answer to any room’s dreary decor.

Block of the Month or a Weekend

I love everything this gal does! Krista Moser has so much talent and personality – she is destined to be a rock star in our industry! Just look at what she has created with her new Creative Grids®  60 Degree Diamond Ruler!

This quilt combines the techniques that are featured in many of her patterns and removes the intimidation factor. Each diamond pattern is repeated twice and takes just a few hours.

Why not feature this at your next retreat? Share a technique, give them a few hours to sew….repeat! Better yet – invite Krista to teach at your shop or guild. Contact her at The Quilted Life. Her personality lights up a room. And, she loves to share her knowledge of quilting and longarming. What a combination! The pattern is due to arrive in September so order now!

Diamonds Are this Girl’s Best Friend

Remember the name Krista Moser because she is going to be a superstar! This gal has it all, talent, color sense, marketing sense – and the most important of all of the senses – common sense! When a relatively new designer has four patterns in the top 100, I take notice – and you should too!

Krista designed the Creative Grids® newest 60-degree Diamond ruler. This Cut Loose Press™ pattern is so simple, even I could make it. It is all done out of 2-1/2″ strips which makes it easy to market!

Or choose this simple Cut Loose Press™ baby quilt that features the hexie aspect of the tool:

Many of you are already kitting and teaching the Aztec Table Runner which can be made with the 60-degree aspect of the tool as well.

Once you know how to use the ruler, these patterns are a piece of cake. They look like you worked really hard but are actually week-end projects once you know her techniques!

And here is the star of the show – the Creative Grids® 60-degree Diamond Ruler:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why not start a series of classes, showcasing a different element of the tool each month? Your customers will love you for it!

Diamonds ARE a Girl’s Best Friend

Krista Moser – the creator of the newest member of the Creative Grids family – is one talented lady! This sixty degree diamond tool has triple the punch – cut hexies, sixty degree triangles AND diamonds up to 16 1/2″. Now that is a lot of bang for your buck!

These two Cut Loose Press patterns are darling and showcase the different features of the tool. Hexie Hot Air Baloons is made out of hexies and trapezoids. Woven Jewelbox is so simple since it is created entirely from 2 1/2″ strips.

Sixty Degrees with Style

Several new patterns will be arriving soon that feature the Creative Grids® sixty degree triangle.

I love these new patterns by Krista Moser of The Quilted Life. I was not familiar with her work but now will be a follower! She is one of those designers that span all age groups – and that is not easy! All of these patterns look totally different but are all created with the same ruler with an extra one needed for the Champagne and Pearls.
