Orange Blossoms Made Easy

I saw this quilt demonstrated at QuiltCon and was so fascinated by the technique, that I came home and showed everybody I knew!

Orange Blossom Quilt

Now it is even easier because you can buy a package of the freezer paper templates! In their words: Make traditional orange peel blocks the fast, easy and accurate way with the Orange Blossom Die-Cut Freezer Paper Templates from PlumEasy Patterns. These precision-cut templates eliminate the need to trace and cut stencils as well as no pinning or applique – saving you time so you can get to the fun of making the blocks faster! And they are far more accurate than creating your own stencils. This package includes 25 sets of Orange Blossom templates die cut from CutRite Heavy Duty Freezer Paper and can be re-used 4-6 times.

The appliqued blocks are trimmed to 7 inches when complete. This tool will guarantee that all of the blocks are the same and the secondary design will meet when he blocks are sewn together.

Orange Blossom Ruler

The templates and ruler are due to arrive early next month. The pattern is available now. This is a great demo so place your orders now!

Crazy Love

Don’t you love the name?

Crazy Love

This Cut Loose Press™ pattern #CLPKAL014 features four letters that are all pieced individually after the angles are cut with the Creative Grids® Spiderweb Ruler #CGRKA6. The width of each letter doesn’t matter. Each letter can be trimmed after the sashing strips are added so that the height of each block is exactly the same before they are sewn together.

Karla Alexander is one of my favorite designers because she thinks WAY outside of the box. In this case, she created all of the cutting instructions to work with directional fabrics. And, the pieces are oversized so they are trimmed to size after piecing the angles. With big pieces and built-in fudge factors, even beginners will be successful. The angled pieces are all cut with her Creative Grids® Spiderweb Ruler.

Creative Grids Spider Web Quilt Ruler

What a great shower or wedding gift. The guests could sign the backing fabric.

At 18 x 53 inches, it would make a statement hanging above a bed! I’m thinking about framing each letter individually and hanging them as a headboard.

If you are a visual learner, a video tutorial will be available soon. Everything is in stock so place your orders now.

This Layer Cake friendly pattern is a the perfect way to use a favorite Layer Cake and comes together quickly. What a great version of a classic nine-patch!
