Back in grade school, multiplication tables were not my friend. Except for 10s. I loved the 10s, and I still do. Besides, there are Top 10 lists of everything imaginable, weather comes in ten-day forecasts, and we have ten fingers and toes. As a Lover of Tens, I was thrilled to receive the new Perfect 10 Quilts book from It’s Sew Emma with the accompanying Creative Grids 10” ruler. Click below to find out more about this awesome combo pack, the Perfect 10 Sampler Quilt Along happening now at Fat Quarter Shop, and how you could win one of two $25 gift cards to Fat Quarter Shop. Ten is Tops!
The Perfect 10 Quilts book
The quilty minds at It’s Sew Emma just launched this book, which features 16 different quilt designs that use the always popular 10” square pre-cut (often referred to as a Layer Cake). We loved the names of the quilts, and while thumbing through the full-color illustrations and step-by-step instructions, we had to take a break to have a snack because all the designs sounded so delicious: Birthday Cake Quilt, Cookies and Cream Quilt, Cotton Candy Quilt… and more! (If you now need to take a break for a snack, we’ll wait here.) One rather small thing, but big on our favorites list: the book is spiral bound so it lays flat on your work surface.

The Perfect 10 Ruler from Creative Grids
There are certainly other rulers with 10” markings, but what makes this specialty ruler great is that it’s a perfect 10” square, so it’s much easier to quickly find and align the important dividing lines that can turn a 10” x 10” fabric square into sixteen 2½” squares or four 5” squares. You can also trim up your half square triangles into more precise blocks. Or, use the clearly marked lines to cut down a 10” square into a 9½” square with just two quick slices – 9½” squares are super popular right now in many quilt patterns. Take a look at this short video, featuring Kimberly Jolly to see the ruler in action. Click to find just the ruler.
The book and ruler are available as a combo pack for just $34.99 (you save a bit buying the combo). That’s just a tick over $2.00 per quilt design for the 16 beautiful quilts featured in the book. And… you can use the ruler again and again for future projects. It’s an excellent value!
Order now, and you can jump into the Perfect 10 Sampler Quilt Along at Fat Quarter Shop. It just started at the beginning of October and runs through December 4th. Each week covers two blocks from all sixteen quilts featured in the book.
