Drum roll please…… It’s Sew Emma designed their first Creative Grids® ruler! This Starburst 30° Triangle ruler #CGRISE30 can be used for all of the traditional fan and Dresden Plate blocks. (Cut and sew together twelve units to create a kaleidoscope; six to create a half Dresden; or three to create a fan.) BUT, check out the angled A and B lines on the ruler. These lines are used to add that “awe” factor to your favorite kaleidoscope style blocks! Place them on the seam of a strip set and magic happens. A whole new world of pinwheels is born. Watch tthe demo.
First Blush is the perfect name for this charming pastel line that includes a variety of mini prints that are great choices for your mini quilts as well. Be sure to order extra bolts of the Daisy Dot (#41955-6) background fabrics in aqua; pink, and white on white- these are sure to become a line of basics soon! And these checks (#41957-3) set on point are perfect binding fabrics! These fabrics are the perfect foundations and finishing touch to a gorgeous quilt! The fabric is not shipping until November, but you can order a shop kit now that includes the fabric, binding, patterns and ruler. Wouldn’t it be great to have your sample done and ready BEFORE the fabric arrives? (Shop Kit Item #42324-X) AND a new fabric line called First Blush from Windham.
You don’t have to wait, however, to create with this ruler. It’s Sew Emma has created three Cut Loose Press™ patterns which are simple patterns that are great choices for samples and classes. Whether you create a large Dresden Plate; a fan quilt; or a spinning variation, we’ve got you covered!
For everyone that wanted a smaller version of our popular 30° ruler (#CGRSG1) – this one with extra bells and whistles perfect for smaller blocks – is the one you’ve been waiting for!
