Today, we’re back with another Classic & Vintage quilt block! If you’re unfamiliar with our Classic & Vintage Series, we take traditional blocks that you know and love and update them with a modern twist.
The Starburst Ruler by Creative Grids, designed by It’s Sew Emma, is designed to create unique blocks with zero paper piecing or fancy sewing skills needed. We love this custom, unique ruler and we have the second project in our Starburst Jewel series to show you how to create perfect blocks every time for this fun project!

It’s time for another gorgeous quilt tutorial and our favorite – a free pattern! Today, we’re going to show you the Mini Charm Mocha free quilt pattern and a quick look at how to create this neutral, metallic piece! As the weather begins to turn, it’s the perfect time to make this quilt, and have a taste of mocha! (But beware, everyone might want this one for their own!)
We selected the Modern Background Luster Metallic collection by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics. This line is so versatile and gender neutral! The flecks of metallic give such a playful and unique look to the line!

If you love quilting tools that save time and are easy to use you’ll love the Stripology Ruler by Creative Grids!This ruler is a total game changer, quilting friends – you’ll use it again and again!
You’ll reduce your rotary cutting time by up to 75% with this Stripology Ruler! Cut your full width fabric and fat quarters into the most popular pre-cuts on the market – 1 ½” & 2 ½” strips; 5″ & 10″ squares. You can also cut 2 1/2″ strips of fabric for binding SO quickly and easily! Originally designed by the oh-so-clever Gundrun Erla of G.E. Designs to use with her well-known tongue-in-cheek line of “strip” patterns, this ruler has so many other uses.
Friendly reminder: This quilt pattern is super cool because you’ll actually end up with enough blocks for two different quilts if you add additional background fabric and binding! FYI: The background fabric used for the second quilt, the quilt on the right in the image below, is Little Ruby Coral Little Sundae.
If you’re ready to start your Little Ruby Quilt we’ve got tools to help you complete a Little Ruby quilt of your own. Not only will we share three separate video tutorials to show you what to do, step-by-step, we also have some Creative Grids Rulers that are going to make cutting and piecing so much easier. Woo hoo!
Hello quilters! We have been huge advocates of Creative Grids rulers for some time now; it’s a no-brainer for us with their easy-to-read lines and grippy non-slip textures. But there are also a wide variety of them out there, so what are the stand-outs to us? From basic to specialized, Kimberly and a few of the Fat Quarter Shop team have listed their favorite Creative Grids rulers.
“I absolutely LOVE Log Cabin Quilts! This ruler makes it so easy to make perfect log cabin blocks. See it in action in our Hope Blooms Quilt video.” – Kimberly
“This is by far my favorite specialty ruler! It helps create the most accurate dresden block, and it’s so easy to use. We have a video tutorial coming out this month on how to create the Sundance Dresden Pillow with this ruler!” – Codi
“Let’s go back to basics with this must-have ruler for all quilters. The 8 1/2″ x 24 1/2″ ruler is my everyday go-to ruler.” – Deborah * We should note, this ruler was on EVERYONE’s daily use list!
“This ruler might seem intimidating to use, but it’s actually very simple! This 30 Degree Triangle Ruler gives the coolest effect for your blocks. We used it with Jelly Rolls in our Firecrackers quilt.” – Jocelyn
“I love making strip quilts, and the Stripology ruler cuts down my cutting time in half. It makes it so easy to cut my 2 1/2″ strips from any print I like.” – Kat
“This ruler is the perfect size for my love of small projects and quilts. It’s also great for traveling in your sewing kit. I definitely recommend having multiple of these small rulers.” – Sarah
