This month’s Facebook First Friday deal gives you 10% off anything in our rulers and tools department. If you’ve been wanting a tool and just hadn’t gotten around to getting it, now’s the time.
Choose from any of the Creative Grid Rulers.
They have square up rulers in sizes from 4.5″ to 20.5″. The smaller ones are handy for taking along to sewing retreats or sewing days with your guild….and invaluable for squaring Half Square Triangles. The larger ones are great for those large log cabin blocks or Baltimore Album blocks. The large ones are also helpful if you need to cut a long strip of very wide fabric….. use your long 6.5″ ruler for the cutting edge and add how ever many inches you need from the square up ruler, and line that up with the edge of your fabric. With a 16.5″ square and a 6.5″ ruler, if your fabric is folded you can easily cut your fabric 40″ wide for backing. You’ll find that it’s much more square than trying to cut evenly from the selvedges.
Their rectangle rulers range from 1″ x 6″ that’s just right for miniature quilts to 6.5″ x 24.5″ that you’ll use everyday. And, of couse, there are several triangle and specialty rulers.
All of Creative Grid rulers have Gripper Dots.
These are the secret to cutting fabric with ease and accuracy – opaque dots that run along the edges of the rulers are part of a patented design that works to prevent slipping and sliding as you’re cutting.
Have you tried any of Kaye Wood’s “View & Do” shapes? They come in circles, hexagons, and 60 degree diamonds.
Elisa’s Backporch has several curved templates available. If you’ve never done curved piecing, don’t be afraid – it’s not as hard as you think! And you’ll get some really fun looks to your quilts.
You can also save on Dahlia (large, and not so large!) templates, Dresden plate templates, a tool to help with pin basting, and lots more!
So head over to our QuiltersWarehouse Facebook page for the Discount Code. The offer is good all weekend… now through the end of the day Sunday (CST).
