Creative Grids Rulers

Karla Alexander's Curves Rulers
Curves for Squares, Rectangles & Curved Slotted Ruler
Made in USADesigner Karla Alexander

Page 7of 8

Karla Alexander has created a line of rulers for Creative Grids® Rulers that make sewing curves a breeze!. Karla recognized the potential of adding curves to squares and decided to take it one step further—and add curves to the other most popular shape in quilting—the rectangle! Use these rulers to replace traditional shapes in any pattern to create a sense of movement for a dramatic effect. This line of rulers were created to be used with her books Color Shuffle; New Cuts for New Quilts; and Stack a New Deck.
