Just in time for the holidays, Kathy Brown of Teacher’s Pet is releasing several new patterns that can be made in a day or two. What sets these apart from other designs? The clever and unusual ways she chooses to display them! Check out this Halloween scene displayed on a dust pan!
God Bless the Ewe S A is displayed on a grater – and can be created with wool or needle punch – either version will add that awe factor to any decor.
Apple Cider is a penny rug that is made with two different sizes of pennies and measures eight inches across – the perfect size to display your favorite battery operated candle. Autumn Mist is stitched on a gorgeous plaid background that adds a subtle depth to the piece.
These patterns are so reasonably priced that your customers will want ALL of them so order accordingly! They are all due to arrive later this month so you still have time to make samples.
“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!
Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings is releasing a line of “snow” patterns next month – just in time for your Christmas in July events!
The vintage cars remind me of Christmases past.
And who could resist these guys! They are just full of personality!
Most of the patterns take only a few evenings so there is plenty of time for your customers to make them for everyone on their Christmas list! Check out all of the Primitive Gatherings patterns and set up a display. Don’t forget the pearl cottons and wools!
For those of you who are not familiar with the Jane A. Stickle quilt, it was originally made during the Civil War – 1863 and is signed by the maker. Not only is it signed, she also stated that the quilt contains 5,602 pieces! The center is pieced from 169 – four and a half inch finished blocks. The border is created from 56 pieced triangles for a total of 225 different blocks.
Brenda Papadakis has drawn the blocks and included them all in her Dear Jane book – a quilt which is on the bucket list for many experienced quilters! Now, Jackie Apessos of Lake View Primitives is creating beautiful kits out of hand-dyed wool. There are individual kits for each row, the borders, corners, and even a completer kit. Each kit includes an ample supply of wool and floss needed to complete the blocks or triangles.
Why not start creating your heirloom quality quilt today?

These wool characters by Cottonwood Creations are perfect little gifts – and although they can be used as pin cushions, they make darling ornaments or add a touch of whimsy to a wreath or windowsill.
What great favors for a holiday get together! Or add them as a package tag. The hardest part is going to be deciding which one to make first!
Many of you have a tradition of buying a new ornament each year. Why not start a new tradition and MAKE one each year? These would be great mini projects to create after that incredible Thanksgiving dinner!
