I am always looking for Christmas gifts for all of those people I want to thank around the holidays – teachers, hairdressers, coaches – you know the list. This is going to be it for this year! I can personalize them with a monogram, saying, school colors – the list is endless. I could even have my grandkids draw pictures of their parents and transfer it to fabric. Wouldn’t THAT be darling??? I can see the tears flowing already!
Add a gift card for an added bonus! These are all in stock now so order them before I do!
This is such a brilliant idea! I can’t wait to use them on my Creative Grids Trim Tools! Cutting fabric accurately is the first step in creating quilts that lay flat, points that line up, and pieces that fit just right. The Gyspy Quilter Spot on Dots allows you to see exactly where you’ve lined up your fabric on your ruler by giving you magnified visibility at the point that matters most. For precision-perfect accuracy, Spot on Dots is the perfect tool for you!
The small dot is 1 inch in diameter. The large dot is 2 inches in diameter. At the center, magnification is 3x.
Place Spot on Dot adhesive side down onto your favorite ruler at the spot you want to magnify. The reusable adhesive ring will prevent the Spot on Dot from shifting while you make precise cuts. The Spot on Dot stays in place until you remove it. Store in its case after use. You can reactivate the grip on the Spot On Dot by simply washing with mild soap and water.
Just the name makes me smile! He is the cutest little penguin to grace the South Pole! Waddles #CLPLDB004 From Cut Loose Press™ by Lisa DeBord.
He is the perfect companion for Noggins #CLPLDB003 from Cut Loose Press™ by Lisa DeBord.
Both are made with the Creative Grids® four-inch curvy and four-inch log cabin trim tools.
Why not bundle some fabrics together that would work great in these quilts? These make a great class. Let them choose either pattern since they share all of the same blocks – but we know they will want to make both!
Teach them how to make a traditional log cabin and complete the blocks as homework. Then, you can move on to Courthouse Steps and Curvy log cabins. If you start now, these guys could be ready to hang by Christmas!
This new Block of the Month by Sherri Noel is written in chapters.
Each of the twelve chapter begins with a life affirming quote and is set off with blocks that all come together to create a charming 84 inch square quilt.
The pattern comes in two booklets – one for the pattern, the other for the techniques. What an opportunity to grow as a quilter while creating a work of art! Wouldn’t this be the perfect graduation gift? Or birthday gift to welcome someone into their teen years?
Or, make it for yourself – we all need a reminder sometimes to focus on the positive! This pattern is due to arrive next month so order it now and add it to your class schedule!
I love the whole concept for this book by Linda Collins and Leah Zieber.
The book description had me hooked: Follow this team of antique-quilt mavens as they share their search for quilts from the past. With decades of vintage-textiles knowledge between them, quilters will discover secrets about where to look for antique quilts, which quilts to snap up quickly (and which to walk away from), how to care for vintage quilts, and more. Next, pore over thirteen favorite antique quilts from the authors’ personal collections and find patterns for remaking true reproductions of them all. Delight in the fun photos of this duo’s treasure hunting in action–quilters everywhere will be inspired to join the hunt.
I can’t wait to make the double nine patch quilt on the cover!
The creative names for these patterns are as cute as the patterns themselves!
Gnomies is a sweet applique design that looks great on a towel, pillow, table runner – you decide!
Here We Gnome Again would be a great block of the month in applique. Why not do the gnomes in wool on a flannel background?
Gnome for the Holidays by Sandy Gervais is a pieced table runner that is sure to please!
FaLaLa is a quick pieced quilt with a Dr. Seuss type tree overseeing the gnome!
Again, A Tale of Two Gnomes would be a great block of the month and a great way to showcase plaids and checks.
Gnome for the Holidays is another obvious choice for a block of the month. Who can resist these little guys getting ready for the holidays???
Noggin uses two different four inch log cabin tools by Creative Grids. The pattern actually combines curvy, traditional and courthouse steps blocks. This could be broken down into a three month class as well.
Twister Gnomes uses the Lil Twister tool for the pinwheels with appliqued gnomes on each end – simply darling!
When five gnome patterns are in the top 100 patterns, it is time to take notice! Start a Christmas by the month program now so they can have everything done by the next holiday season!
Tula has her own style – and that style requires threads that are a little more vibrant, a little more colorful – well, a little more TULA than what you currently have on hand!
I love that this collection includes four large spools of neutral shades – perfect for piecing. There are also 10 small spools of her signature colors – all 50 weight thread. And everything is packaged in a gorgeous tin!
These threads are the perfect choice for top stitching her new ribbons available in three colorways:
Everything is due to arrive this month so order them now!
Matariki is the Maori name for the Pleiades constellation which appears in the middle of winter in the Southern Hemisphere. It signals the changing of the seasons to a new planting year. Like New Year in the Northern hemisphere, Matariki marks the time for reflecting on times past and looking forward to the future. Hence, the title – Hexies are Heavenly is perfect for this quilt! Matariki is a ‘Block of the Month’ by Sheila Christensen Quilts #SCQBOMCOMP.
You can bring back the rich colors of civilizations past with the Museum colorway, or look forward to the future with the Spectrum colorway, the choice is yours and the resulting quilt will look very different depending on which you choose.
All of the pieces for this quilt are cut from strips and use the Creative Grids® 60-degree Triangle 12-1/2in Quilt Ruler #CGRT12560. Everything is straight seams so it is a perfect choice for machine piecing but it can be hand pieced as well.
. Everything is straight seams so it is a perfect choice for machine piecing but it can be hand pieced as well.
This quilt is made up of 18 hexagonal blocks each measuring 12” high with setting triangles in between. It is written as a 10-month block of the month program. What a great way to introduce your students to the possibilities of a pieced hexie!
