This English Paper Pieced Tree Skirt is beautifully hand-pieced using the traditional EPP method. Instructions for glue basting, sewing, and adding a facing are included in the pattern. An EPP-facing method is used to finish the edges of the tree skirt, keeping the scallop-like edge without needing to bind non-right angles. Instructions are also provided for trimming the edges so that the tree skirt can be bound traditionally.
Make a dent in your scraps with a quilt that celebrates your love of fabric scraps! Just a yard and a quarter of background fabric, and a single roll of 2 1/2″ wide Scrap Tape turn a pile of scraps into your new favorite quilt. Sewing scraps onto Scrap Tape is a meditative experience—you’ll love digging to the bottom of your scrap bin and remembering projects from the past as you give these scraps a second life in a quilt! You can curate your scraps in a certain color or set of colors, or go wild with all your favorite scraps!
For those of you who are not familiar with Scrap Tape: The best thing about scrap tape is that it stabilizes the grain line-making all your scraps usable and your strips nice and straight. Make unique 2-1/2″ strips using fabric scraps. Construct with a stitch and flip method, then trim to size. Scrap Tape washes away with water when your project is complete.

Deb posted this quilt on Facebook and I immediately fell in love. Even though there is the illusion of curves, they are actually cut and sewn using the Creative Grids® 2 Peaks in 1 (CGR2P1) tool. Combining blocks made with the Kitty Cornered Tool creates a stunning secondary pattern. The pattern includes fabric requirements for three different sizes from topper to queen.
Deb has had several hundred people make this quilt in her Grids Girl program. She sent me some pictures from those students:

Amy Barickman is back with another clothing pattern, that is. She is known for her loosely constructed garments that offer multiple options. In her words: The AnyTime Topper will appeal to quilters, as well as those who sew apparel. This loose-fitting, versatile style can go from casual to a cocktail party depending on fabric choice. The quick and easy construction, as well as comfortable style, will inspire makers to construct multiple versions of this design. The 8 pages, full-color fold-out format includes versions photographed in wovens, quilt cotton, knits, rayon, and toweling yardage as well as specific tips and techniques working with those substrates. Clever options for upcycling fabrics like bandanas or a tablecloth are also featured. The pattern includes two sizes (S-XL) (2X-3X), with mid-hip and three-quarter length options.
I included a picture of the back of the pattern so you could see the longer length which would be so flattering, no matter what body type you are!

Karla Alexander has created several top-selling Cut Loose Press™ patterns that feature her Creative Grids® Spiderweb Ruler (CGRKA6) in incredibly creative ways. But did you know that she has videos to show just how easy it is to cut and sew these masterpieces?
The latest video supports her newest pattern called Crazy Love. Don’t you love the name? The four letters are all pieced individually after the angles are cut with the Creative Grids® Spiderweb Ruler. The width of each letter doesn’t matter. The sashing strips can be adjusted by trimming them after the letters are pieced so they are all the same height.
What a great shower or wedding gift. At 18 x 53 inches it would make a statement hanging above a bed. Warning: once you watch the video, you will have to make one! Video
The same technique is used in her Crazy Christmas Tree pattern. Try it in Fall colors or deep greens for a cabin theme decor.
Here is the link to the Crazy Christmas Tree video.
And, last but not least, Coffee Break can be personalized by quilting the names of friends and family on the cups.
This one is just as easy. The saucer, cup and handle are created separately and then sewn together: video
