Folded Corner Companions

Did you know that all patterns made with the Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper can be made with the new Folded Corner Clipper XL? Whichever size you have, why not give these Cut Loose Press™ patterns a try?

This Maple Leaf Table Runner combines the Creative Grids® Kitty Cornered Tool and the Folded Corner Clipper or Folded Corner Clipper XL. Each leaf is cut from a 10″ square and the stems from another. You can’t get any easier than that to kit!

Deb Heatherly used this tool to create two classics. X Marks the Spot is created with (34) 10-inch squares and what Gudrun Erla calls the four B’s – background, borders, binding, and backing. At 61″ x 70″, this quilt goes together quickly and is the perfect size for a throw.

X Marks The Spot

The Starry Nights Table Topper measures 36″ square. The units are strip-pieced before cutting so the tip goes together very quickly.

Begonia from Cut Loose Press by It’s Sew Emma is an excellent choice to perfect your skills when using the Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper! Use it to square up half-square triangles BEFORE pressing. And then use it to create the pointed units in the begonia block. It really is that easy.

All of these patterns are Cut Loose Press™ patterns so they are available on-demand and printed with the shop name. Place your orders now.

The Folded Corner Clipper XL

Twice the size of the original Creative Grids® Folded Corner Clipper, the Folded Corner Clipper XL can span a 10-inch block and cut wide, mitered borders.

Creative Grids Folded Corner Clipper Tool XL

No need to draw pencil lines when prepping your favorite blocks such as snowballs, flying geese, diamonds in a square and cornered rectangles! Since you have to trim the corner anyway, why not trim it first, and use the raw edge as your seam guide? AND… since the corner was trimmed with a straight edge, your bonus triangle is ready to sew into a Half-Square-Triangle block! Or, use the 45 degree angle to create binding or mitered corners.

Use the additional printed angle line to square up and trim the corners from any pieced block. Adding triangles to the corners of a pieced log cabin block, for instance, is now easy and accurate!

Cut Loose Press Reflections

Use the Creative Grids Folded Corner Clipper XL to make large half-square triangles from 10-inch squares and sub-cut them to make this stunning table runner. Then make the leftover triangles into slightly smaller half-square triangles for the placemats. Combine them on your table to add that awe factor to any décor. Note that there are two different layouts for the placemats. I like the light center since it will be covered by a plate and the prints will show!

Cut Loose Press Barn Raising Lite

This modern take on a traditional log cabin barn raising quilt goes together very quickly since there are only 48 blocks. The asymmetrical layout adds that awe factor. Since the units are cut with the Folded Corner Clipper XL before sewing, there is no need to draw diagonal lines or trim tails!

Barn Raising Lite

Cut Loose Press Bauble Chain Quilt

Doesn’t this remind you of the beaded chains we all loved in the 70’s? The baubles are cut with the Folded Corner Clipper XL after the strips are sewn into sets so it goes together very quickly. The cutaway corner triangles are then sewn into the smaller units so there is no waste of fabric. The background is the perfect place to showcase some dramatic quilting!

Clover Wonder Pins

These are simply brilliant! Clover Wonder Pins are a revolutionary new pin concept to temporarily hold layers of fabric together instead of safety pins and straight pins!!

Wonder Pins


They are strong enough to pierce multiple layers but thin enough to go through fabric without leaving holes. Wonder Pins are great when a sturdier thinner pin is necessary to pierce thick layers without bending. No need to pick up fabric when pinning.

Wonder Pins

Pin through layers of fabric and simply push the closure down.
To unpin, push down and over.

I like to pin the pieces together as I am cutting out a quilt so I don’t loose any – but then I am always bending traditional straight pins. Not any more! Who would have thought that after all of these years, Clover would invent a better safety pin! They are in stock now so place your orders!

The New Block Markers

Keep your quilt pieces organized using Pinnable Quilt Block Markers from Purple Hobbies. Use your own pins with a Quilt Block Marker to pin a letter or number to your fabric pieces.

Pinnable Quilt Block Markers White

Choose from a variety of bright colors to contrast with your fabrics. Each letter and number was custom designed to make them easy to read at a glance.

Each set includes the full alphabet (A-Z) and numbers (0-9) for a total of 36 pieces.

Pinnable Quilt Block Markers White

Use them to mark the sewing sequence when cutting strips for a log cabin quilt. Or organize the individual pieces when paper-piecing. Use them to keep track of the blocks for your Block of the Month projects. Or mark them in order when laying out blocks for a quilt! Use two colors to easily separate the pieces of a block that uses mirrored pieces.

Set a Great Table

Carolina Moore has created two Cut Loose Press™ patterns that feature Creative Grids® tools and Gypsy Quilter® Pre-Cut Battings – with stunning results!

Are you ready for all the summer BBQs and picnics? Your hot dish will take center stage when presented in this Americana Casserole Hot Pad!

Americana Casserole Hot Pad

This stars-and-stripes motif is created using the Creative Grids® Strippy Stars tool (CGRDH2) by Deb Heatherly. This pattern uses the Casserole Dish Hot Pad Pre-Cut Batting and Insulating material (TGQ104), which has two layers of batting and polyester and metalized layer to help keep your hot dish hot. It perfectly fits a standard 9 by 13 inch casserole dish. With just three fabrics, this pattern would be simple to kit with a red, white, and blue fabric from your shop’s color wall. But, why not kit it in Fall and Winter holiday colors as well? After all, stars are always in season and these would make great hostess gifts. A great class option. Students can learn how to use the Strippy Star Tool and actually finish the project in class!

These 2 for 1 plate cozies are darling and simple to make! They feature the Pre-Cut Plate Cozy batting from The Gypsy Quilter® (TGQ102) which is microwave safe, with fun piecing using the Creative Grids® Kitty Cornered Ruler (CGRDH5) by Deb Heatherly.

2 For 1 Plate Cozy

The pattern is written so that two plate cozies can be made with two contrasting half-yard-cuts of fabric. Since you can make four plate cozies from one package of pre-cut batting, you may want to double your fun, or in this case quadruple the fun , by buying four half yard cuts of fabric. Students could easily finish a set of these in class AND learn how to use the Kitty Cornered Tool. We all love instant gratification.
