Take a Stripology class with Creative Grids and GE Designs

I LOVE this new ruler by Gudrun Erla of GE Designs.  Reduce your cutting time  by 75% with this new Stripology ruler.

CGRGE1

Item #CGRGE1  Retail $54.95

This Creative Grids ruler is made out of a strong, pliable material that doesn’t move or shift while cutting – and has lots of bells and whistles.  Vertical slits are long enough to easily cut through folded fat quarters and folded yardage straight off the bolt.\

The signature CGR gripper strips hold multiple layers of fabric in place with absolutely no slipping when cutting.  The slots are positioned 1/2″ apart with dashed white and black markings between them.  These markings are visible on both light and dark fabrics. LOVE it!

There are also horizontal markings – printed every half inch – alternating in black and white – again, visible on all colors of fabric.  Use these lines to square up the fabric before cutting to guarantee perfect right angles with every cut!

Need to cut those popular 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ strips?  Simply cut through all of the slots marked with a square or star on the bottom of the ruler – no math required!  (In addition, Gudrun will show you how to also cut 1/4″ measurements!)

Need to sub-cut 10″ squares?  Position them under the defined white square on the ruler to guarantee square cuts every time.

Use the 45 and 60 ddegree angles to sub cut diamonds and other angled shapes – again watch Gudrun’s video to show you how…

The support for this ruler is simply amazing!  Gudrun has created this Cut Loose Press pattern that offers the perfect opportunity to showcase how to cut strips – and then sub cut them with the ruler.  Waverunner is just darling – and can be pieced in an afternoon!

  1. Please help, my ruler markings are to the left which does not allow me to cut from the right as shown in the demo video – her ruler has the markings on the right. Did I mistaking lay purchase a ruler for a left handed person?

  2. Your ruler is just like the one pictured but may look different because of the camera angles. Simply place the ruler so the straightened edge of fabric is on the left, under the 0 marking. Then, when you cut through the slits, they will be the correct size.

  3. I can’t seem to be able to cut the ends (both top and bottom) of my strips since the slit does not go all the way through. When I take out my strips, there is still a small attachment on both the top and bottom of the fabric which I have to cut with scissors. What am I doing wrong?

  4. I asked Gudrun and here is her response:

    If she is using a 45 mm cutter, she needs to line her fold on the bottom along the black 2” line and if her fabric is then extending the 13-1/2” white line at the top, there is not enough room to cut all the way through. Then she needs to trim off the selvages. If she is using a 60mm cutter, she needs to line up the fabric fold with the tops of the black crosses on the 2” line just to have enough room.

    Hope this helps! Removing the selvage is really important.

  5. I think that is our web site. I would like to talk to you about teaching a class for us in Mobile, Alabama. I am from Minneapolis and I know you will love to see this area. We have 200 in our Azalea City Quilters Guild. Our meeting are the second Tuesday of the month. My number is 800-338-5597. Maybe you could do a program and a workshop. Carol
