No Mess – Just Press

I love Mary Ellen’s Best Press so much that I buy it by the gallon. I have tried filling up a small container with my kitchen funnel with limited results. NOW there is a solution.

Spray Misting Bottle Funnel

My favorite part? The loop at the top allows you to store it right on the gallon jug! This is a great companion to their mister which holds a whopping 10 ounces.

Jelly Roll Rugs are not just for the Floor.

Roma of RJ Designs has added a new pattern to her popular jelly roll rug series – Pillows, Placemats, Coasters and Trivet Too!

Pillows & Placemats

What a fun and easy Make It/Take It class for the holidays! Roma has endorsed the new Gypsy Quilter Jelly Roll Tube Maker that removes the tedious folding step.

The Gypsy Quilter Jelly Roll Tube Maker

I don’t want to miss anything so I am quoting the description:

To make the Fabric & Batting Tube, place a thin batting strip on the wrong side of a 2 1/2″ fabric strip. Feed the layered (fabric & thin batting) strip, batting side up, into the wide end of the  Jelly Roll ™ Tube Maker. If needed, place a sewing awl in the slot on the tool to pull the layered strip through. Then fold the now magically folded, layered strip in half as it comes out the other end & place under the sewing machine presser foot ready to stitch. Keep the Jelly Roll Tube Maker close to the sewing machine & slide along as you sew.   
The metal Jelly Roll Tube Maker may be used with or without an iron (with caution) for other similar technique projects.

Endorsement:
“As the creator of the original Jelly Roll Rug & subsequent patterns, I have dreamt of the production of this amazing, helpful notion. The strong, sturdy & durable Jelly Roll(tm)Tube Maker will ease the sometimes tedious & painful folding process of creating the fabric & batting tubes. The Jelly Roll ™ Tube Maker will save time, produce consistent width tubes & help to provide amazing results.”

You won’t be able to make just one!

Creative Grids® Cutting Mats

The hit of Houston! Creative Grids® now has cutting mats in four sizes: 6 x 8; 12 x 18; 18 x 24; and 24 x 36 inches.

Creative Grids Cutting Mat 24in x 36in
Creative Grids Cutting Mat 18in x 24in
Creative Grids Cutting Mat 12in x 18in
Creative Grids Cutting Mat 6in x 8in

Why am I soooo excited about these mats? Gudrun Erla and I were on the design team from the very beginning and got to create our dream mat. The Creative Grids® Rotary Cutting Mat is double-sided. One side features one-inch grids with eighth-inch markings over the entire surface. All numbers are printed outside of the grid area, so they are always visible. Popular 1-1/2 inch cuts are highlighted with white stars; 2-1/2 inch cuts with white squares. Eighth, quarter and third-yard cuts are marked with dashed lines for easy reference.

The other side is designed to use with the Creative Grids® Stripology series of rulers. Line up the fabric and rulers on the spaced horizontal half-inch grid lines. That is all you need – no other distracting markings and lines are needed.

AND, they are not available in chains! If you buy three of each mat, the display rack is free. Just order the assortment. The heavy-duty rack can be purchased separately as well.

Creative Grids Cutting Mat Assortment With Rack

The black and white markings on our rulers show up perfectly on the gray and teal colorations. For designers, it photographs wonderfully so is a great backdrop for demos, videos, and illustrations! Give them a try!

How do you describe such a dramatic quilt? It is like stained glass meets the modern age – but has the appeal of a favorite Christmas ornament as well? I can’t really describe it – but love the effect!

The newest patterns by Terry Atkinson are easily recognizable – they just exude her style! Floating Peaks can be made from fat eighths or 10″ squares. The points are floating so they will be perfect every time! The finished size is 15.5″ x 38″ – which means the backing can be cut from the width of fabric. Or, since you won’t be able to make just one, two can be backed with just 1 1/4 yards of fabric.

Floating Peaks

This pattern features the Creative Grids 60 degree triangle ruler.

Register Notions

The Gypsy Quilter is releasing several new notions next month – all would be a great register display. They are reasonably priced and functional – a great combination!

These Heat-Resistant Thimbles protect fingers when pressing. The nubbed surface also works perfectly when pressing seams open. Each container holds 16 of three different sizes. The large one fits my thumb (which I use to fingerpress seams open).

The Gypsy Quilter Heat Resistant Thimbles

These Silicone Iron Rests come in three different colors: red; green; and purple. Raising and lowering an iron as often as we do when quilting can cause carpal tunnel.
Do your wrists a favor and rest your hot iron on this silicon rest.


The Gypsy Quilter Silicone Iron Rest Green

No-Slip Grip Dots can be applied to the wrong side of templates and rulers to stop slipping.

The Gypsy Quilter No Slip Grip Dots

These are the type of notions people don’t know they need until they see them – and then can’t live without!
