Circle Savvy!

Have you tried the Circle Savvy yet? It's a Creative Grids ruler by Swirly Girls Design, and it makes cutting circles, semi-circles, and quarter-circles a piece of cake! It cuts from 3" to 15-1/2" and any size in between in half inch increments. Now you don't have an excuse for making those quilts with circles or rings!

Come see the Circle Savvy ruler in action at StitchCraft on December 1 at our Creative Grids event. We'll have demonstrations all day by Creative Grids reps and there is no need to register! We also have several patterns in stock that specifically use the Circle Savvy.

This makes circles seriously easy. Look at what came together in just a few minutes!

Jaybird Quilts Hex N More & Pattern Restock

Our last bunch of Hex N More rulers sold out quickly, but we just got a restock! It's such a versatile tool; it gives you 4 sizes of 4 shapes (Hexagons, 60 Degree Triangles, Half Hexagons, and Jewels). The Hex N More is the brainchild of Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts. She has great tutorials on her site, including several for using this ruler. 

We also have patterns in stock that go with the Hex N More. 

Have you used the Hex N More yet? We'd love to hear what you think about it!

V and Co.: Simply Color

V and Co.'s new Simply Color is simply beautiful! We have several bolts of the Ombre solids, as well as coordinating Junior Jelly Rolls. We also have regular Jelly Rolls and Charm Squares featuring the patterned fabric of the Simply Color line.

We're really looking forward to seeing what you make with the ombre solids. To get your creative juices flowing, here's a quick and easy baby quilt tutorial from the designer. I'm going to see what happens when I use an ombre solid with Eleanor Burns' Braid in a Day!
