Giveaway: Lazy Angle Ruler and Book

Lazies, We just went back to press with our Lazy and Lovin’ It book. So what better way to celebrate than to host a giveaway and share the fun. I’ll be giving away a book and ruler to two lucky Lazies. Details and a video demo of the ruler below.

Click ‘Tea Garden’ image to enlarge and see the fantastic quilting by Angela Walters

Our Lazy Angle ruler joined the Creative Grids family of excellent products last year. Since that time, I’ve designed a few quilts using the ruler. Above is a close-up of the blocks in Tea Garden. The green leaves around the floral centers are all Lazy Angle blocks.

The ‘Littles’ patterns below are charm pack friendly! Quick and easy projects.


Watch me demonstrate how to use the Creative Grids Lazy Angle ruler in the video below.

    Thanks so very much for your patterns. Would love to win!

    Ooooooooooooh, how nice to have an opportunity to win both the book and ruler! Yippee!

    Our ASG, American Sewing Guild, gets together every month to sew for charity all day and do we have scraps? Absolutely! Several of us like to do quilts for the foster children and more so this book and ruler would be perfect! I’m one of the quilters.

    We also like to use scraps for your Runaround Bag, which is one of my favorites along with the Sassy, for the teenage girls. Small but so useful and they just love them! We get the fun of sewing and they get the fun of having and using them all to themselves.

    Many of these children have little to nothing so these prizes sure would make our sewing faster and easier. LOL

    It’s fun to put scrappy blocks for the front under the zipper. VBG

    Thanks for all your wonderful ideas and generous sharing.

    sewing with a smile, dottie

    Even though I am 78 yrs. young, I love to make quilts for my children, grands, and their friends who have new babies. I would love to try the new Lazy Angle Ruler on a quilt, first for new babies as they are smaller, then graduate to bed size.
    Love this web-site.

    But, I have to tell you, that the pattern I appreciate the most, is your Hospital Gown. I made a couple for a friend, and she wore them not only in her hospital stay, but every doctor appt after that! Everyone was so impressed!
