Grids Girls Take Note

This new book by Deb Heatherly is flying off the shelves but don’t worry – more are on the way! Her newest book – Creatively Yours – features 10 quilts in a multitude of sizes and four table runners.

This book is a must-have for all of you gadget gurus! These quilts combine several different Creative Grids® tools with stunning results.








This book is a perfect companion to any Creative Grids® or Grids Girl program. Demonstrate a different ruler each month and build as they learn to show how they all work together to create the quilts of your dreams!

Time for a Coffee Break

Karla Alexander of Saginaw Street Quilts has a new Cut Loose Press™ pattern #CLPKAL012 that is going to fly off the shelves like her Crazy Christmas Tree #CLPKAL009! Look how cute this is …

I can’t wait to make it! Actually, I want to design my dinette around this. Can you imagine covering a cornice board with these and framing individual ones for the wall? Of course, I’ll make the table runner too – but who can stop there when they are so darn cute?????

Just like the Crazy Christmas Tree and Crazy Hearts #CLPKAL011 – they all use the Creative Grids® Spider Web Quilt Ruler #CGRKA6.

.

Crazy Christmas Tree is the #1 selling Cut Loose Press™ of all time!

Crazy Hearts uses the same ruler and same technique. Why not start a series of classes? These are great classes and demos!



There are TONS of companions for this ruler so check out the patterns shown on the website under the ruler for more possibilities. Why not demonstrate those techniques in class? Everyone loves getting more bang for their buck – but make sure you have THOSE patterns in stock as well.

Stitchin’ in the Kitchen

I love, love, love these kts by Bareroots. Each kit includes a high quality Dunroven towel; floss; pattern and the rickrack trim.

What a great foundation for a project of the month program. All of the designs are also available as patterns and additional towels can be ordered separately. Design a program that works for you!

Dresden Plates Reimagined

Candyce Copp Grisham has embraced the traditional Dresden Plate block and added her own spin that elevates it to all new heights!

Her simple instructions and techniques create particularly beautiful Dresden plate blocks. Candyce explores four different edge treatments and twenty-five design elements – all possible in a multitude of sizes. Create one of her patterns or use the book as a launching pad to your own heirloom.

Just look at the possibilities!

And, all of these designs are created with the Creative Grids® 18 degree Dresden Plate ruler!

What a great series of classes!

Braided Twist by Cheryl Phillips

I can’t improve on Cheryl’s description: Try this unique technique for a quick table runner with no quilting, no hand sewing, and no binding. The beauty of the Braided Twist is its simplicity! The Braided Twist tool includes a 32-page booklet and three insert pages. The main project runner size is 13-1/2 x 33-1/2 inches. Longer and shorter variations are included. The Bonus Blossom project is 30 inches in diameter.

The tool makes quick work of cutting the curves and the markings are intuitive!

These two color versions – in two different lengths showcase the curves.


You can even add appliques or embroidery.



Don’t ignore the bonus project! It is the perfect centerpiece to a round table!

This is a perfect class – a project that they can actually finish in class. Don’t we love instant gratification??? Or, make step-outs for the perfect demo!

Pillow Case Kits

What a brilliant idea! I love Susybee fabrics. They always have a shop owner in mind – smaller collections that are affordable. Now they have taken many of these collections and created pillow case kits!

Each kit includes 3/4 yards of the main fabric – printed so it works perfectly as a pillow; 1/4 yard of a contrasting band fabric; and a strip of fabric for a decorative falange. The best part??? Each kit comes with directions to make a pillow case with French seams using the “burrito” method AND there is a video tutorial as well!

What a great mother/daughter class – and a great first project for any beginner. Once your customers know how easy this technique is, they will make them to match ALL of their quilts!

Elizabeth Hartman Shines

Elizabeth’s booth at Market made everyone smile. Here is a sampling of her new patterns. Spectacular Savanna uses four different Robert Kaufman Kona cottons – Pepper, Snow, Wasabi, and Metal.

Leafy Quilt is stunning and makes me yearn for tropical climes!

Who doesn’t love Lemurs and a whole quilt of them? Even better!

Leafy and Lemur patterns are already in stock. Savanna will be coming soon!
