I love the creativity of the gals from Sassafras Lane and their Fall releases are better than ever! In this case, a picture is worth a thousand words – and six pics? Even better!
Their new Block of the Month is stunning and the other patterns showcase their winning style. All of the patterns are arriving at the end of the month so order them now.
Just in time for Market, Elizabeth Hartman is releasing three new patterns due to arrive the first week in November. Delightful Desert includes nine new animal and plant designs – and could be the basis of your next Block of the Month program!
This pattern is fat quarter friendly – and is available in bundles featuring a new fabric line called Terrarium by Robert Kaufman which is due to arrive in February. The fabrics for this quilt are also available as a kit:
Greenhouse features five new plants and can be made in three different sizes. It is 10-inch square friendly. The fabric is available in 10-inch squares as well.
The fabrics for this quilt will also be available in kit form:
Lisa the Unicorn is 2 1/2 inch strip friendly and of course, you can order strip packs! The pattern includes instructions for two sizes of quilts as well as a floor pillow.
Just look at the colors in this fabric line – available in warm and cool colors:
The gradations in this line are stunning! Order everything now because you know it will sell out fast!
These gals are having way too much fun on this retreat! Now they are biking into town to do some major shopping! Can’t wait to see what is in their baskets.
For those of you not familiar with this embroidery block of the month by Crabapple Hill, there are six patterns in the series. Five patterns are embroidery designs and the final pattern gives instructions on how to put the entire project together.
It is kind of a mystery because you don’t know what the completed quilt will look like or at this point, what the final embroidery is! And, frankly, that is part of the fun. Everything that Meg Hawkey does is amazing so we know we will love it!
The latest installment is due to arrive in September so order it now. Don’t forget to order extras of the first three installments for those who are late to arrive at the party. The floss colors for each pattern are listed as companions on the website so be sure to have those in stock as well!
“You Lucky Dog” is the latest Block of the Month by Bonnie Sullivan that features her top quality Woolie Flannels.
The individual blocks are simply darling and each could be stand alone projects. And once again, there is a thread set to match!
There are eleven blocks in the series – which leaves the twelfth month to put it all together. The demand for these patterns is so great that we can not keep them in stock – Bonnie can not print them fast enough! Who says you have to start with #1? Blocks five through eleven are in stock now, so why not buck the trend and reverse the order?
Want to get your sample done quickly? The entire quilt with pre-cut appliques is due to ship next month!
Chocolatier is the latest block of the month from gen x Quilters.
This 72″ square quilt features a creative setting that will appeal to everyone and gives you the opportunity to teach the basics. At just $3.00 a month, the cost is also affordable to everyone.
Why not give traditional blocks a whole new life in this modern version? Simply striking! There is a shop guide to help you get started AND the patterns are available individually or in complete sets! They are due in this month so you can have a sample done by Christmas…

I love everything by Blackbird Designs and their whimsical take on the harvest season is no exception. This nine block applique quilt would be a great block of the month – or two blocks a month if your customers want to have it done by Fall.
Applique is the perfect portable summer project. Why not display the book with appropriate fabrics – and don’t forget the embroidery threads. Make a statement by letting your customers know that you are a one stop shop!
As I am writing this, it is the first day of summer and the perfect time to begin Bertie’s Summer block of the month. This four part series features Bonnie Sullivan’s summer line of Woolie Flannels.
As of today, ALL of the patterns are in stock – which is a miracle considering the popularity of everything by Bonnie! These are so cute, no one will be able to resist.
Why not display the patterns with your entire collection of Woolie Flannels and Prescencia threads. This is a great display just in time for Row by Row and Shop Hop season!
In this third of a four part series (#CAH347), the Salem Guild Meeting is in session! This is the last of the embroidery panels so your customers can have all of them completed before the finishing pattern is released!
All three embroidery panels measure 15″ x 42″. With the addition of the pieced blocks included in the final pattern in the series being released later this year, the final quilt will measure 57″ x 72″.
Be sure to have the recommended Cosmos thread on hand. For ease of ordering, they are all listed as companions to each pattern on the Checker website.
Order the first two patterns (#CAH345 and #CAH346) so those shop hoppers can buy the collection – and offer the flosses required as a kit as well. You know they like one stop shopping!
Start a family tradition by creating your own bedtime stories based on this quilt! Start now, and the panels could be done by Halloween!
