The ruler comes also with a free pattern which is awesome and it is called "Urban Runner". This is a great bonus! How many rulers do you know that come with a free pattern? Pics of the free pattern handout are shown below:
The ruler also squares your blocks and can be moved around to make other shapes (this is called techniques). These techniques are why they created patterns and books. They created a single product (the ruler) that can be expanded upon. It's on sale at Connecting Threads right now for 50% off you pay only $16.00 USD or approx 21.35 CDN . This is a real deal compared to what I paid for the ruler!! Also if you order over $75.00 there is free shipping.
I was so happy with the way my table runner went together and with the motivation to do more with this ruler, I just borrowed their first book from the Waterloo Quilters' Guild Library, see pic below:
Do I need to say more, there are rulers I buy and do not get much use out of them, but this ruler is going to get lots of use because, I love the quilts and plan to make more, they are fresh, modern, have lots of opportunity for quilting and the most recent book, has quilting suggestions in the back, yeah!
The only place that I can see to get the new book above is
If you purchase the book from them, please tell them I gave them a positive review!
Oh and did I mention, I see scalloped edges on my quilts and borders with this ruler??
I dream of many projects from this wonderful group of ladies and their ruler, patterns and books in the new year. My dreams are colourful!
