Sassafras Lane is Spicing Up Market

I love everything that Sassafras Lane does – and this Market is no different!  They bridge the gap between the traditionalists of my generation and the sassy style of theirs – and they do it beautifully!  Check these out.

Clay Court is a wonderful study in color.  Piecing the triangles out of 2-1/2″ strips adds texture and the triangles are created with the Perfect Square and Perfect Rectangle Ruler.

Alligator Alley is done in this generation’s version of a blue and yellow quilt.  Sixty-degree angles never looked so good!

Darby Road looks like a funky hexie and is actually paper-pieced so it is simple!  And who wouldn’t love to adopt Elsie?  And the next time someone tells you to – Just Focus – make them this quilt!

Mini & Sassy with Sassafras Lane – Part One

The gals at Sassafras Lane are creating cutting edge designs that bridge the gap between traditional and modern quilters.  What is not to love????

They have now taken some of their favorite patterns and miniaturized them for fans like me!  Once your customers have experienced the joy of creating these quilts in miniature – and have the techniques down pat – they will want to make them in larger sizes.

Sassafras Lane – Their New STUNNING Diamond of the Month Program

No need to copy the foundations out of the book – they are available on foundation paper…(Item #SASSLN0030  Retail $12.00).

Sassafras Lane explodes the Hexie!

This is one of the most clever block of the month programs I have seen in a long time!  Sassafras Lane has designed 12 different paper-pieced hexies that combine to make a 72″ x 90″ throw.   Add borders if you want it to fit a queen or king sized bed.

Here is another colorway of the quilt – shown on the back cover.

There are no inset seams because the setting diamonds are created from 60 degree triangles cut with the Creative Grids 12 1/2″ 60 degree triangle (CGRT12560).

The intricate patterns achievable by paper-piecing duplicates the kaleidoscope designs we all love.  Choose a light, medium, and dark fabric along with 12 coordinates to get started.  In a class setting, this would be a perfect color theory class.  And wouldn’t you love to see this quilt in a variety of fabrics as your students construct their blocks?

The gals at Sassafras Lane also recommend Carol Doak letter size foundation paper (Item #10985) and the Add a Quarter ruler (Item #CM12).  Some blocks are easier than others so this is the perfect opportunity to introduce your customers into the basics of paper-piecing…..and beyond!
