Atkinson Designs – And Then There are Quilts – Part Two

Then there are quilts!   I love these quilts – and even better – so does my daughter!  Terry designs projects that appeal to both audiences without forcing either one of us outside of our comfort zones.

Stash Stars

This quilt incorporates a technique that makes this the perfect beginner quilt.  The flying geese star points “float” – so all of them are perfect.  The blocks are all trimmed to 10 1/2″ after they are sewn.  As long as the seam allowances are consistent, the quilter will be successful – and come back for more!!!

Item #ATK174  Retail $9.50

The blocks are all trimmed to 10 1/2″ – simple with the Creative Grids 10 1/2″ square.

Item #CGR10  Retail $19.95

Morning Noon & Night

You have to love the name as well….I want to make this one in king size.  Look closely and you’ll see that it gives you the feel of a bargello quilt – but the seams don’t match from row to row.  There are two different layouts for this quilt – but Terry says the block is the same!  I can’t wait to get the pattern because I can’t figure out what the block is!!!!

Item #ATK173  Retail $9.50

These blocks are trimmed to 12 1/2″, so once again it is the perfect beginning quilt – but everyone will love it!

Item #CGR12  Retail $23.95

Hexie Garden

Hexies are everywhere – but this one has it’s own sense of style!  Terry uses the EZ International #882670181A which cuts hexagons in sizes from 1 1/2″ – 5 1/2″.  She also uses a 60 degree angle – and since we are the home of Creative Grids, the CGRT60 is our ruler of choice!

Merry-Go-Round

But when just a little splash of color is needed – especially for a round table – why not make this simple table runner.  The instructions show how to cut the hexies with a 60 degree ruler (CGRT60) – yes, another teaching opportunity or demo.  It is easy to kit – four fat quarters are all you need for the hexies, binding AND backing!

Item #ATK169  Retail $6.50

These will be arriving any day so place your orders NOW to make sure that you get yours from the first order!  Be a good “scout” and be prepared!  You know they are going to be hot so order all of the companions as well.  Your customers will be glad you did!!
