The Latest Addition to the Jelly Roll Quilts Line…

 New released  two books Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts features settings for 10 sampler quilts – and an assortment of 50 blocks that can be placed into the settings! What a novel idea – and they can all be cut from 2 1/2″ strips. Each quilt design is made with just 40 – 2 1/2″ strips! The collection includes blocks for beginner and intermediate quilters so all of your students can enjoy a challenge! With 10 settings and 50 blocks to choose from, the possibilities are endless!

Their second release - More Layer Cake, Jelly Roll & Charm Quilts – features 14 different quilts from lap to full size that use a variety of pre-cuts. This book also features a “vital statistic” guide that helps you do the math to vary the size of the quilts. These patterns feature five and ten inch squares as well as two and a half inch strips and fat eighths. Don’t you love the basket quilt on the cover? Quirky and fun!

What you may not know is that Pam and Nicky feature the new Creative Grids multi-sized 45/90 degree triangle ruler in these books. This ruler is designed to make quick work of cutting these strips and squares into the sizes you need. The ruler cuts half-square triangles and quarter-square triangles up to a finished size of 5″. The markings on the ruler do the math for you – it is absolutely mindless! Simply choose the marking for the finished size of the square and you are good to go! The ruler fits in the palm of your hand for easy cutting and positioning.

This ruler also comes in a 45/60 degree version for those of you who love 60 degree angles.

Don’t you love it when creative people get together to combine talents and make our lives easier???
