Are you ready to dive into the world of 60 degree quilting designs? Our Star 60™ tool brings the same concept of oversizing and trimming down into the realm of 60 degree shapes. We begin with a basic Star 60 unit, containing a diamond and two small triangles in 17 different size options, and then team this unit up with a multitude of additional shapes to create an array of amazing 60 degree quilt projects.
Of course, you will find all the same benefits you have come to expect from every Studio 180 Design tool. There are multiple size options, oversizing and trim down for better accuracy, fine lines for higher precision, right and left hand instructions, free videos, supporting patterns, incredible design options, ease of use with other patterns, and an increased success rate for every level quilt maker.
I'm proud to announce a brilliant tool collaboration between Studio 180 Design and the Running with Scissors Quilters, The Corner Pop 2! Built upon the same idea as the original Corner Pop tool, this tool will allow you to add popped corners with a 2:1 ratio. What that means is that CP2 will make pops that are twice as tall as they are wide which will give you some great, spiky looks.

You asked for it and we listened; a Square Squared tool for ½” finished units is now available! Finally, the perfect tool for projects that use ½” increment finished diamond square units. This versatile tool comes with the basic instructions for making Diamond Square units that finish from 1 ½” up to 8 ½ in 1" increments.
The Square Squared Half Inch is an all-in-one tool that gives you a window template for accurately cutting the center square, a chart printed right on the ruler for the recommended size to cut the triangles sewn to the four sides of the center square and a trim down section on the ruler that simplifies the alignment of ruler to fabric unit and allows everyone to clean up the unit to a precise measurement every time.
Create the illusion of spheres floating in space when you use strip piecing and three different values of fabric on a light background. The project is constructed with the Four Patch Square Up® tool allowing you to pair together squares and rectangles to form this geometric Abstraction.

The beautiful pathway in this design is created using a second background, edged with colorful triangles. This quilt provides a new perspective on a traditional log cabin. You will have a wonderful time along the way as you create this fun and easy design.

Combining Corner Beam Units with Uneven Chain Units creates the illusion of a quilt made on point. Adding an accent fabric and a properly placed dark fabric helps to create a wonderful beaded effect on this quilt. This is a great project to use some of your fat quarters for the lap and queen size quilts. Make it scrappy or make it “planned scrappy”; either way the effect will be dazzling.
Designed by Sarah Furrer.
Use your Split Rects tool to make Elongated Combination and Hourglass Units to add spice to your sashings or create unique stars.

Make this snazzy Irish Chain type project using your Wedge Star tool and several fun new techniques! Choose greens to make it feel like a true Irish Quilt, or consider using any other group of favorite colors. It will look amazing in anything you pick.
Growing up in Vermont, my favorite sign of spring was snowdrop flowers popping out from under the snow. I always found the dichotomy between their delicate looks and their hearty resistance to the bitter cold of the Northeastern winters particularly striking. This quilt is inspired by these blooms, blossoming in the dark and cold, against all odds.
