Hand embroidery and English Paper-Piecing are the perfect marriage – handwork at its best! Now Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill has designed two projects around these two favorites!
The Mystery of Enchanted Hollow is a 9 month Block of the Month series. It start off with the pattern for your first stitchery, directions for English Paper Piecing the stitchery “frames”, and instructions for a pieced mystery block or 2. The quilt assembly pattern will be included with the final stitched block, when the mystery will be solved! The quilt measures 64 1/2″ x 76 1/2″.
Then there is Winter Garden…in Meg’s words….
There’s nothing as full of hope for the future than a garden waiting beneath the snow. It’s time for seed catalogs and pages full of plans for Spring! This contains a tiny bit of colored pencil tinting, dainty little embroideries, some English Paper Piecing, and a bit of easy piecing. You’ll have so much fun stitching the fir boughs!
The detail of the embroidery and the soft colors in the English Paper-Pieced frames are so stunning, I had to show you a sample that highlights the details.
And then there is Daffodil Parade – her newest installment in the Vintage Truck pattern series. March’s flower is the daffodil. This 15-1/2” x 30-1/2” wallhanging doesn’t only have daffodils on the embroidered design… the pieced star blocks look like daffodils too!
All of these patterns are due to arrive this month so place your orders now!
This follow up to the best selling Tabletastic by Doug Leko won’t be released until May so I can’t share too much. But I know many of you have developed a table runner of the month class based on the original book – and wanted to let you know that you can continue those classes with projects from the sequel!
The book features 20 new Table Runners and Toppers patterns. Most are designed around pre-cuts so they are easy to kit as well. The book is full color and 100 pages! It comes with a metal spiral binding, so it will lay nice and flat while you use it.
If you missed the original, order it now!
The original is in stock now. The new edition will be available in May!
The new and improved Gyspy Quilter® Chain-PIece Thread Cutting Gizmo is now in stock! The new look incorporates replacement blades in the base.
I can’t improve on the product description so here you go:
Reduce thread cutting time with the Gypsy Quilter® Chain-Piece Cutting Gizmo. It is the extra hand you need to help separate chain-pieced units when quilting. To safely cut the threads between the chain-pieced units, simply hold the fabric pieces with both hands and slip the thread into the slot on the top of the Chain-Piece Cutting Gizmo. The embedded razor blade cuts the thread quickly, easily, and safely. The non-slip bottom ensures that it will stay in place when in use. Five replacement blades and the magnetic tool needed for blade changes are stored in the base. See a video here //youtu.be/-_KRaIj3kqc
I LOVE this quilt! I was just asked to make quilts for two gals in their early 30’s and this is perfect!
I love the off-set diamonds and the tone-on-tone diamonds. It could be the perfect choice for a wedding or graduation gift as well. The pattern includes yardage requirements and instructions for three sizes: lap, twin, and queen. The diamonds are created with the Creative Grids® Perfect Rectangle Tool #CGRTMT3.
Mountain Gems is another asymmetrical design that packs a lot of punch and also includes three sizes.
Both patterns will be available in March so place your orders now!
Kathy Schmitz is one talented lady – and her newest book “tine Treasures’ showcases her talents to the max! The book contains 72 miniature embroidery designs. At only 1 1/2″ wide they are perfect for 1″ hexies! A pattern for a 16″ x 20” framed piece, using 65 of the designs, is also included in the book. A full color thread guide and embroidery stitch guide are included.
How fun would it be to stitch one of these a day as a sew along with friends – and then have a challenge for the most creative way to incorporate them into a project??? Start planning now because the book will be available next month!
The perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, Easter or Mother’s Day!
