This 1-1/2″ square ruler is the perfect ruler for anyone who loves to work with little blocks. The entire back of the ruler is covered in grip to ensure accuracy when working with minis. The square also features diagonal lines drawn in both directions so squaring up quarter-square triangles or hour glass blocks is as easy as pie!
A new rectangle has also been added to the line!
This 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ ruler has all of the markings you love on our current rectangles. We have also added diagonal lines that intersect 1/4″ away from the 4 1/2″ side of the ruler. These diagonal lines are perfect for squaring up flying geese units as well as squares set on point.
Both are in stock now. If you teach any miniature classes, these are a must!
The queen of aprons has a new design arriving next month. In her words: A half apron or a full apron – it’s your choice. Start with a half apron with modern streamlined shaping for easy of movement and hidden in-seam pockets accessible from both sides of the apron. Button on an apron top with adjustable ties. Use two yards of cotton fabric for both halves of this apron and then build a clever apron wardrobe with a mix of coordinating fat quarters to create apron tops to interchange.
Why not make a display of her top selling patterns?
The best feature of all of these aprons? Pockets! Visit our website to see all of the possibilities: Mary Mulari
Robin is one of my favorite designers. When I see one of her quilts, I don’t even have to look at the name to see who made it. Her sense of style and color shine through on every quilt! Here are three of her latest designs.
Inspired by “Jubilant Song”, this quilt celebrates large central panels going out to decorative ends. Three panels make a LAP/WALL quilt of 60 x 67″ or ONE panel can be used for a lovely 14 x 67″ TABLE RUNNER. Feature a large WOF print through the center panels or use Fat Quarters with large motifs. Add a contrasting or subtle sashing for extra decoration.
Bar Hop is a precut-friendly quilt pattern to make a 51 1/2 x 50″ Lap/Wall quilt or a 87 x 84″ Queen quilt. Charm Packs, Layer Cakes or Jelly Rolls can be used with background yardage. Small quilt has extra outside border. Use Fat Quarters OR the Wild Blossoms WOF print for large horizontal bands which contrast with the smaller vertical bars. Great for playing with color within the little bars.
Use Layer Cake (10″ squares) or Fat Quarters with sashings and background to make a woven composition with bars. Get a more shaded/tonal look with 2 background colors. This quick and easy quilt is instructed for Lap, Twin, Queen and King sizes.
These patterns are due to arrive next month so place your orders now.
This is such a great product that I can’t believe I missed it – or all of the different ways I can incorporate it into my projects! Helen Stubbings of Hugs ‘n Kisses has thought of everything!
Helen Stubbins says: Applique paper is a revolutionary product to use for perfect turned edge Applique. It is semi water soluble, semi transparent, has a light fusible on one side and can be used in many techniques. Use for: Glue stick applique, needle turn applique, English paper piecing, foundation paper piecing and as a temporary stabilizer.
How great is this for labeling your quilts? I cut out a heart and ironed it to the wrong side of a fabric. I used a glue stick to turn the outside edges. Then I used a pigma pen to do the labeling and stitched it to the back of the quilt! Done!
It is pliant right out of the package but maintains its shape when the glue is applied. Helen of Hugs and Kisses is also known for her English paper-piecing so she also offers several sizes of hexagons, etc. so you don’t have to cut them – or remove the templates later!
These pre-cut shapes are available in hexagons, circles, clamshells, diamonds, and every other shape you can imagine! Visit our website to see all of the available shapes and sizes

As I am writing this, it is snowing outside. When I saw this snowdrops pattern by Fig Tree & Co, it made me smile and reminded me that we should be seeing these sweet harbingers of Spring next month – and I am sooooo ready!
Every possible variation of every possible fruit went into the mix. Apples, pears, cherries, blueberries, oranges and lemons all made the final cut and became quilts for this summertime compilation of fruit goodness. Five of the patterns are created to be interchangeable to mix and match into true fruit salad quilts. In addition, a few interchangeable leaf options as well as small flower filler blocks if you decide to mix and match are included.
Who doesn’t love a good basket pattern Fruit Basket uses a single layer cake for the baskets. It is retro, summer picnic perfection if there is such a thing.
