New from Creative Grids®

The 10-inch Wonky Log Cabin Trim Tool #CGRJAW13 puts a fun twist on a traditional block. This one is designed to work with 2-1/2 inch strips for both the logs and center squares making it precut friendly.

After adding each round of logs, place the appropriate centering square on the ruler over the center square of the block and trim. Since each round is trimmed before adding the next one, your final trim squares up the block making it ready to be used in your project.

Jean Ann has designed five different Cut Loose Press™ projects using her latest tool.

Sweet Sixteen showcases the crazy quilt effect created with her Wonky Log Cabin Trim Tool. Use a 40 pack of pre-cut 2-1/2-inch strips with lots of fabric options to enhance the scrappy look. Or, use scraps you have on hand for a true stash buster.

Sweet Sixteen

Going My Way uses fabrics to color the blocks with a light and dark side. Twisting and turning the blocks creates the arrows in the finished quilt.

Going My Way

Bubbles Baubles and Balloons uses the same light and dark coloring of the block, but by twisting and turning the blocks, the circular pattern comes to life.

This pattern incorporates just 4 blocks into this table runner. Just (1–3) 2-1/2-inch strips of 6 different colors are all you need to create the blocks so it is a great stash buster. Or make every log a different fabric for a more scrappy look.

Pineapple Popouts

The pineapple popout series showcases a new technique. The center pineapple block is made with the Creative Grids® Mini Pineapple Trim Tool (#CGRJAW3MINI) with rounds that finish at ½-inch. Additional rounds are added and trimmed with the Creative Grids® Pineapple Trim Tool (#CGRJAW3) to create 1-inch finished rounds. Click here to see a video showing this technique.

In this table runner from Cut Loose Press™, (Pineapple Popout #CLPJAW085) the colors are reversed in alternate blocks to enhance the dimensional effect. Since the corners of the block are pieced from the same fabric as the borders, the pineapples seem to float across the table. Since each round is trimmed after cutting, sewing and pressing, the results are perfect every time.

Pineapple Popout Table Runner

In this quilt from Cut Loose Press™, (Pineapple Popout Spice #CLPJAW079) the colors are reversed in each set of coordinated prints to enhance the dimensional effect. The scrappy border and binding add a modern feel to this stunning quilt. And since each round is trimmed after cutting, sewing and pressing, the results are perfect every time.

Pineapple Popout Spice

In this tote from Cut Loose Press (Pineapple Popout Totte #CLPJAW086), the colors are reversed in alternate blocks to enhance the dimensional effect. One block is bound and added as a pocket on one side. The fabrics and handle are reversed on the other side. Since each round is trimmed after cutting, sewing and pressing, the results are perfect every time.

Tip: Eliminate the math by cutting the strips using the line down the center of any of the Creative Grids® 2-1/2-inch wide rectangles. This white line is at the 1-1/4-inch mark, the width of the strips needed to make the mini-block. Use the line down the center of any of the Creative Grids® 3-1/2 inch wide rectangles to cut the strips for the outer rounds.

Skinny Pineapple not a Diet

Create perfect 6, 9, or 12-inch finished Pineapple blocks by squaring up each round of strips as they are sewn. Since each round is squared up before the next set is added, the blocks are perfectly square. The cutting requirements for the strips and center square are printed right on the tool.

The widths of the logs finish to 3/4-inch so even a six-inch block looks impressive. Add two more rounds to complete a 9-inch finished pineapple. Add two more rounds to complete a 12-inch finished block. It really is that easy, and accurate.

Creative Grids 12in Skinny Pineapple Trim Tool

There are five new Cut Loose Press™ patterns to support this tool.


Pineapple Pinwheel combines two favorite blocks, pinwheels and pineapples The pinwheels are created by piecing the corner triangles before the final block trim. When four blocks are sewn together, the secondary pinwheel pattern is formed. Magic!

Pineapple Pinwheels


Pineapple Puzzle utilizes this Tool to its full potential. This pattern combines 6-inch and 12-inch finished blocks to create the puzzle design. There are special markings on the tool to guarantee that the 6-inch finished block is trimmed to the exact right size. What a great way to learn how to use the tool!

Pineapple Puzzle

Gumdrops uses the Tool to make 6-inch finished blocks with 3/4-inch finished logs. The proportions of this baby quilt are perfect. Cut a variety of pastel strips from fat quarters to achieve a scrappy look. Then sew just twenty-four 6-inch blocks together to complete the center.

Pineapple Smoothies is an oversized throw that accentuates the pineapple pattern by using the same fabric for odd-numbered rounds. The even-numbered rounds are cut from a variety of fat quarters to achieve that rainbow sherbet look.
