New from Gypsy Quilter

Several new products from The Gypsy Quilter are due to arrive in the next month.

The Gypsy Quilter Mist Bottle

Using your favorite starch, starch alternative or water; prep your fabric with a continuous mist. The Gypsy Quilter Mist Bottle evenly distributes the mist, eliminating splotches and drips. This even spray distribution ensures a perfect press as well as conserves the product. The bottle is designed to fit your hand with a trigger that can be activated with just one finger. It has a wide mouth so it can easily be filled. A full bottle holds 10 ounces, enough to press all of the fabric needed for most projects before refilling, but is light enough that the weight is easy to handle.

Quick Easy Projects

These newest additions by Betty Gormick are sure to make you smile. And, talk about instant gratification – all of them can be made in an afternoon!

Boo To You Door Hanger

These three Cut Loose Press™ patterns require templates that are too big to fit on a traditional Cut Loose Press™ pattern, so we decided to try something new! The full-sized template sheets are accessed through a link included in the pattern. Since they are the right size, you can print them right onto a product like Print N Fuse (Wonder Under cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets so it can be run through a printer). No tracing is required!

These projects are great choices for classes or kits. Why not include the pattern, templates printed on Print N Fuse, and fabric in a kit. Just remember, you can only give them the templates if they purchase the pattern – talk about great customer service!

Santa Stop Here Door Hanger

This wreath finishes to a whopping 18″ and also teaches how to make a fabric bow.

Scalloped Borders

Krista Moser, the brilliant designer from The Quilted Life, has designed a Scalloped Tool with Creative Grids®. This baby is a game-changer!

Just look how adding a gently scalloped border to a panel turns it into a work of art!

This quick, easy, but impressive baby quilt can be completed in just a matter of hours. The Cut Loose Press™ Simple Scallop Baby Quilt pattern #CLPKMS009 shows how to turn a standard 24″ x 40″ panel into a stunning quilt. Would you like to add this border treatment to a different sized panel or quilt? Not a problem! This pattern focuses on the technique of creating scalloped borders the no-math way with the Creative Grids® Scalloped Template.

Are you a visual learner? Again, we have you covered! The pattern includes a link to a video tutorial that shows exactly how Krista created the quilt shown. And, since you just need a panel plus 3/4 yard of two different fabrics to complete the quilt, it is oh sew affordably.

But let’s talk more about the tool…

Creative Grids Scallop Template

Add that awe factor to any quilt by creating a scalloped border. The tool includes three sizes of scallops plus a corner unit. The small size is perfect for borders that are 2 to 5 inches in width. The medium scallop is ideal for 4 to 8-inch borders. And the large scallop works for borders up to 12 inches. That’s right – you can now add borders up to 12″ wide guilt-free because they are now a design element!

Since you are creating this design element with paper templates, they can be spaced or overlapped as needed to fit any length of the border. Don’t you love built-in fudge factors? Hint: Design and mark the border before quilting so the scallop element can be showcased with quilting (and the machine quilter can attach straight sides to her frame). Then use the tool to trim the curves and bind with a bias binding.

What a great class or demo choice – and both are in stock now!
