Introducing Lazy Girl Littles

Lazies, Meet the Littles. With the debut of our Lazy Angle ruler through Creative Grids in Salt Lake City later this week, I thought a few fun little quilt patterns might be nice. And, they are little, so Littles it is.

Aren’t they just the cutest? Littles are just that, little projects. These three happen to be Lazy Angle quilt Littles. And they are so contagious that I hope to do many more.

Little means small amount of fabric, small project size, small pattern size, and small price tag. All three of these Littles work with charm squares – I guess that makes them littler.

Quilt Market
These little sweet hearts, I mean Littles, debut at International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City later this week. Catch me at my SchoolHouse session with Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts on Thursday from 3:10-3:40 in room 251D. Three additional Lazy Girl quilt designs will debut there, too. More about those soon.

Catch up with me at Checker Distributors Friday morning for a ruler demo and to see the quilts. I’ll be on duty from 9:30-11 I think.

Michael Update
Lazies, my hubster Michael is doing great since his neck surgery nearly two months ago. When he woke up after surgery, all his pre-op pain was totally gone. Just amazing. The doc says everything is healing as expected and life is starting to get back to normal. It’s a new normal, but a good one. Thank you for your love, prayers, and support.

All three projects finish to 32″ x 40. Use 1-2 charm packs as directed, or a hearty collection of scraps. All patterns include the full size templates needed to make the Lazy Angle blocks. Or pick up the Creative Grids Lazy Angle ruler and give it a whirl. Get a jump on things and watch the Lazy Angle video demo, too. Click here for the demo.

The actual pattern is small-ish, too. The patterns fold to 4.25″ x 5.5″, which is half the standard pattern size.

Beach Ball, LGD302
Lollipop Twist, LGD303

All three finish to 32″ x 40″
Retail $6.50 each

Available Late May
Check with your favorite local quilt shop or online retailer for the Creative Grids Lazy Angle ruler and our new patterns. The patterns will be available by the end of May.

    Ooooh, Joan, I am so excited. I am not a quilter but always wanted to try. Maybe a smaller project like this would be good for me. Would you recommend it for a beginner? I love the Lollipop Twist!

    Dear Joan – So glad to have you back. PTL for healing for your hubby.
    We all LOVE your creative mind! It’s always satisfying to have projects small enough to get them done in a reasonable amout of time for gifts and for self, so bring on the LITTLES!!
    Happy Spring.

    They’ll probably be great for making the LGD purses too.

    Oh I am so glad to hear the hubby is much better!!! Good news indead! I just love these little babies, what a great idea for all the charm packs we buy with no purpose in mind (am I the only one?). Fun fun fun and can’t wait to try them. Ideas are spinning in my head for some baby wall hangings or double up for a cute matching quilty! Thanks so much, and wish I was going to market, someday I will get back there!

    Joan, I love the patterns. I’m going to have to order the ruler. I’ve been following your blog and Julie Hermanns and fell in love with several of the patterns.

    Glad Michael is doing so well. I do classes before and recovery after of patients who’ve hd that surgery and it’s amazing how much their pain improves after surgery – even counting the postop pain. Good luck to you all. And enjoy market!

    in love with your Littles! Your Lazy Angle Ruler would save me tons of time… need to pick one up! Also love your video tut! Fantastic.

    Can you update on the Littles and where we can buy them online. I don’t have a LQS near where I live. These little quilts are just so cute I can hardly wait to make one.
