Last year (or maybe in 2011), I bought a set of rulers called Leaves Galore. I haven't used them yet but have good intentions so this year I picked up a book by the originator of the ruler. While Leaves Galore has videos on YouTube, I thought this book would be a handy reference for how to use the rulers plus it has directions for several projects.
This is what a Leaves Galore ruler looks like.
I am determined to make something bright and modern from Kaffe Fassett fabric. I have a few fat quarters already but saw these coordinated fat quarter packs and they called out to me. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them but when I decide, you'll see it here.
I needed some more greens for my stash and a vendor called The Christmas Shoppe had a great selection so I picked up eight half-yard pieces.
Miraculously for me, I did not buy any rulers or other gadgets. I did see a demo of the log cabin square up ruler from Creative Grids. I didn't buy one at the show but I could be tempted if I decide to make another log cabin quilt. I'm trying to figure out if a regular 8" ruler could be used in a similar fashion.
