Ruler #1: The Half-Hexagon Braid Quilt (Retail $13) - Includes patterns for 2 quilts and acrylic half-hex template
Using half-hexagon shapes, you can piece this chevron quilt lickety-split. No need to trim the sides, as in other braid-style quilts.  Cut from 3" strips, there is no fabric waste!
This is what I am working on .....
ohhh I didn't win did I?, that other lady does not have this ruler YET...

Anyway I have chosen mellow yellow as my borders
for my new bed runner that will be upcoming in the near future...
Debby's rulers and her patterns are: can we say
EASY AS learning to make BRAIDs .
Ok, had I known how easy braids were I would have been
making these long ago...the ruler really is magical....
look at how easy this looks...it is....no really it is...
and you can make hexies with it too...same ruler...
I KNOW....

Ruler #2: The Hexagon Spiderweb (Retail $13) - includes patterns for 2 quilts, a multi-size 60 degree ruler (sizes up to 12" finished blocks) and a tip sheet for making those awesome Twisted Hexagon Blocks
Sew 2 strips together and then cut into 60 degree triangle shapes. No set-in seams,  no odd shaped templates; all straight seam sewing.

Ruler #3: The Kaleidoscope Ruler (Retail $13) – includes patterns for 2 quilts, a multi-size kaleido-ruler and color planning sheets.
 Create the illusion of curves using only two triangle shapes. The key is the color placement and the possibilities are endless.
Ruler #4: EZ Dresden Tool & Patterns ($12)
Modern Vortex Quilt (2 versions) with Dresden tool ($12)
Both pattern packs and one tool: ($18)
 Use a multi-sized 18 degree Dresden tool to create Dresden Plate blocks and then take it modern with the two color Vortex Quilt! Both pattern packs and tool = $18. Separate, see above.

Rulers #5 & 6: The Arrowheads Quilt (12" blocks) (retail: $20)
Creative Grids has these for $19.00 EACH. Two multi-sized template set. Patterns for two sizes of quilts and a tip sheet for sewing other traditional blocks.
