Once again, the photography showcases these beauties to their best advantage – and makes you want to start cutting up that stash immediately!

Don’t forget!  I know I mentioned this in Part One, but it bares repeating!If you are hanging them on a wall, you may want to consider using Soft and Stable for batting.  They will hang perfectly flat and add that professional touch!  It comes in several packaging options: Project Packs which include four 13 1/2 x 18 1/2 inch pieces (originally meant for place mats but perfect for minis), 1/2 yard cuts; 1 yard cuts; etc.  Why not display these packaged options next to a display of minis???

Creative Grids® has several rulers that may help you along your miniature journey.  They have put together a booklet entitled “Love Mini’s” which shows a wide variety of tools available to create small units. Help your customers find the right tool for their mini projects!   There is also a tri-fold available to help your customers keep track of the Creative Grids® products they already have… or want! Be sure you keep a supply next to your cash register or Creative Grids® display.  Newest rulers are listed in bold on the list – so be sure to replenish new brochures every spring and fall.

Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites

I love everything by Carrie Nelson.  She is one of the queens of scrap quilts.  I told you about this book a few weeks ago – sight unseen – but now I have photos.  My personal rule of thumb?  If I see four quilts in a book that I want to make, it is worth it – and in this case, I want to make them ALL!  The book includes a collection of twelve of her favorite patterns.

Start with the cover quilt!  What a great setting for nine-patches!

Combining nine patches and churn dashes?  And houses and flying geese trees?  Pure Genius!

Who doesn’t love stars?  And half stars – combined with log cabin blocks?  Even better!
