Sneak Peak – New Ruler

Here is my New Ruler coming out at Fall Market 2013, Oct 26 – 28, 2013.  It is with Simplicity Creative Group.  It makes 2 styles of stars in 2 sizes – a EZ Twinkle Star where the points touch and a EZ Floating Star where the stars float on the background and points do not touch.  I just love this ruler.  I can get all the blocks sewn and cut in an evening and then sew to top all together in a few hours.  I have used lots of different color combinations, batiks, large prints, solids, hand dyes, Christmas patterns. They all work. 

EZ Twinkle Star / EZ Floating Star LARGE

EZ Twinkle Star / EZ Floating Star 8.5 inches square LARGE

EZ Twinkler Star / EZ Floating Star SMALL

EZ Twinkler Star / EZ Floating Star 5.5 inches square SMALL

Here are what the rulers look like.  You use strips so these are great with the Jelly Rolls or the Batik strip that are all pre-cut for you.  With the star you can use the 5 inch charm squares. Here is how that works. Really easy and fast.

Cut charm squares in half. Sew one to each side of center 5 inch square, use ruler to cut final block.

Here are the instructions for both blocks when cutting strips from yardage –
