Some of you have been having trouble viewing the link I posted yesterday. Guess what? So am I. So while the powers that be are working on that - let's see if I can help you out a bit! As I looked over my post yesterday - I realized that if you couldn't see the link page - you probably had no idea what the heck I was talking about. Well - I'm here to explain things today!
Lucky little me - - I am now part of the Creative Grids Design Team - and have designed my first quilting ruler! Of course I'm a little biased - I have LOVED Creative Grids rulers for a long time - and for a number of reasons: from the clarity of the lines on the rulers to the gripper dots that keep your rulers from slipping. Well - I came up with an idea for a ruler that I think has been needed in the market place, and as I said - lucky little me - the folks at Creative Grids agreed with me and the Fat Quarter Cutter ruler was launched!
2 1/2" strips, 2 1/2" squares, 5" strips, 5" squares, 2 1/2" x 5" bars, 1 1/2" strips, 1 1/2" squares, 3" strips. 4 1/2" strips, 6" strips and 6" squares. Whew!!
AND - not only will it cut your fat quarters or yardage into these popular cuts - it will take your existing precuts i.e. jelly rolls, charm squares, layer cakes, etc, etc, etc and cut them into smaller portions! So there you have it! Don't have any pre-cuts? Cut your own with the Fat Quarter Cutter! Have pre-cuts? Cut them into the shapes you need with the Fat Quarter Cutter! And whats more - this Fat Quarter Cutter ruler is not tied to any specific book or pattern (although we're SO over the top in love with this ruler - we have designed new patterns to go with it!!!) - - - you can use it to cut the shapes you need for any pattern or book that calls for fat quarters or pre-cuts in the fabric requirements. Now how awesome is that? (if I must say so myself!!)
Need a visual to help you out with all this info? The Creative Grids folks are here to help with that. Go here and watch this video and see just what this ruler will do for you!
And don't forget - - leave us a comment to let us know what you think about our newest venture - and you just might win one of these fabulous rulers yourself this Friday!!!
With a warm heart,
