Tuesday Tip: Perfect 5 Ruler (and book)

Creative Grids has done it again! They have created a ruler for 5 inch charm packs. Cut an array of popular “pre-cut” shapes from a 5in square or from scraps. Or cut around the ruler to cut your own charms! The quarter inch grid covers the entire square. Popular cuts such as the two and a half, three and a half, and four and a half inch squares are highlighted. A diagonal line makes quick work of trimming half-square triangles. The ruler slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, their exclusive gripper holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts! Here’s a video demonstrating how this Perfect 5 ruler works:

To go along with this ruler, There is a brand new book called “Perfect 5 Quilt Book”. This book will charm you, we’re sure! The Perfect 5 quilt book by It’s Sew Emma contains 16 quilts that will delight and inspire, all made with classic 5in charm squares. With options using 1, 2, 3, and 4 charm packs, it is the perfect companion to help quilters’ stashbust (as well as stash build)! Dazzling and delectable, choose from an assortment of different quilt styles and pair them with your favorite precuts.
