New Diamond Quilt Ruler and Patterns from Krista Moser

Gain confidence with angles and color placement, plan out curated flower shades, or use scraps from your stash for an eclectic look! Dancing Dahlias will give you a complicated look without tedious piecing. It is constructed of two main blocks, the flower blocks, and the leaf blocks, with side setting units that make construction a breeze with no Y seams. Each block illustrates a different technique using the Creative Grids® 60-Degree TINY Diamond Ruler.

This table runner by Krista Moser from Cut Loose Prres™ is the perfect choice for the summer holidays. Construction is simple – there are no Y-seams. But since the design is created with a combination of triangles, trapezoids, and half-triangles, it is a great way to learn how to use the ruler. The star field on opposite corners makes the finished project read “right side up” on either side of the table.

Use this 60 Degree Tiny Diamond Ruler to cut diamonds, hexagons, triangles, and 120 degree side-setting triangles up to 3-1/2 inches. It includes all of the features of Krista’s other diamond tools.

The Creative Grids® ruler and Cut Loose Press™ pattern are in stock now. The Dancing Dahlias pattern will be available later this month.
