I love everything this gal does! Krista Moser has so much talent and personality – she is destined to be a rock star in our industry! Just look at what she has created with her new Creative Grids® 60 Degree Diamond Ruler!
This quilt combines the techniques that are featured in many of her patterns and removes the intimidation factor. Each diamond pattern is repeated twice and takes just a few hours.
Why not feature this at your next retreat? Share a technique, give them a few hours to sew….repeat! Better yet – invite Krista to teach at your shop or guild. Contact her at The Quilted Life. Her personality lights up a room. And, she loves to share her knowledge of quilting and longarming. What a combination! The pattern is due to arrive in September so order now!
French Farmhouse reminds me why I love reproduction fabrics.
For once I am at a loss for words so I will let the publishers tell it:
Blend the beauty of antique quilts with the simplicity of primitive stitchery and what do you get? The new French farmhouse! The French have a way of combining fabric prints, colors, and textures to create their signature country-farmhouse look. Now quilters can capture this old-fashioned, comfy quality in their quilts too. Ten projects range from classic Nine Patch and medallion designs to quilts featuring tiny houses and stunning stars. As they sew along, quilters will learn how to get that perfectly aged look with simple patchwork, fusible applique, and easy embroidery. Gorgeous photos provide display ideas, transporting readers to the farmhouse of their dreams. Illustrated instructions make it easy to achieve the sought-after look.
Don’t you love these??? The muted colors give the quilts a timeworn look. They look like they came right out of Grandma’s attic! The book is in stock so order it now!
I totally missed the boat on this one! I looked at these totes and aprons by Kimberbell and thought they were great for machine embroidery – but didn’t consider all of the other possibilities!
These canvas totes come in natural and denim and are totally finished except for the side seams which are serged! When you are done decorating, just stitch up the sides with a straight seam!
My grandchildren are coming down for “grandma camp” in a few weeks. My idea? We are going to cut pockets from old jeans, pinking the fabric beyond the pocket so we can attach them to the tote easily. They can embellish them any way they want and then we will stitch multiple pockets on each side. We may even add a few to the inside!
Kimberbell has those assortments of adorable trims as well. Adding ribbon to the tops of some of the pockets might be fun too! Who says they have to be just for machine embroidery???
And then I saw these blank aprons in adult and children’s sizes! Craft aprons with multiple pockets? What do you think???
These are all affordably priced and in stock! I just placed my order!
This pattern is being released next month but I just had to share! I am in the process of remodeling my bathroom when I saw this! Wouldn’t this be a darling shower curtain???
All I have to do is add a few more stripes!
It uses their Quick Curve Ruler:
The quilt is unusual because it is wider than it is long – which makes it a perfect choice for my bath curtain! Sometimes it is so fun to jump outside of that box!
