The newest creation from Tula Pink is packaged in two different ways. Alchemy is available as a pattern with approximately half of the paper-piecing templates needed to make the quilt.

The entire pattern and template set:
Alchemy Acrylic Fabric Cutting Template with 3/8″ Seam Allowance is made with Special Transparent Pink Acrylic and is perfect for fussy cutting Tula’s Pom Pom’s fabric using the center circle. This is a must since so many of Tula’s fabrics are perfect for fussy cutting.

These quilts and table runner are absolutely beautiful so I am going to let them tell you in their own words….
Mermaids Tale was designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer and was built using blocks from the Cattail Mixer series, including the Shimmering Star block and the Star Shower border. It also includes a C border, which does not include any foundation paper piecing. These instructions are broken down by groups, referred to as Groups A, B, & C. Size 68 x 68.
Frozen Fountain includes four sections referred to as Groups A, B, C, and D. The A group is a diamond block referred to as the Ice Crystal Star, the B group squares up the diamonds and is referred to as Icicles, the C group is an on-point border group called Satin and Lace, and the D group square up the on-point design to create a 99-inch square queen size quilt. This pattern incorporates all of Quiltworx’s latest techniques as well.
The Spice Rack was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project is fast, uses only straight-lined foundation piecing and assembly, employs simple cutting techniques, and is an affordable and fun way to jump into your first paper piecing project. It is meant to make those new to the process find confidence, understanding and success. Size 75 x 97
The Prism Table Runner is a design inspired by an idea of Certified Instructor, Joanne Wearing, hoping for a table runner workshop that utilized the Prismatic Star block, which would be available for a one day workshop. This pattern is the result. If this is the first time you’ve done a Quiltworx pattern, you will learn foundation paper strip piecing techniques for lone star diamonds and also striped borders along with the use of cutting templates, smart corners, and TRP lines. Size 22 x 65.
These are all due to arrive in January so order them now!
I love combination quilts! They give me the variety I love with the added visual interest I crave. Shaded Stars is a perfect example of combining two techniques – strip piecing and paper-piecing. And, just look at the results!
Memory Trellis is made with a bias tape maker with all fabric cut on the straight of grain. A full size pattern is available separately to aid in placement or blow up the drawing included in the pattern. The tape is fused onto the background so all of the lines are perfectly straight – no pin distortion.
The showcased center is bound like a mini quilt and attached to the center with velcro so it can be changed as the need arises.
What a great baby or wedding gift!
These patterns and templates are the newest designs by a very talented artist – Kathleen Andrews of KwiltArt. Visit our website to see all of her amazing works!
This series of mini quilt patterns are due to arrive next month and are a great way to use up scraps AND perfect your piecing skills. But don’t panic because these little babies are paper-pieced!
All of the quilts measure just six by eight inches! And the patterns are very reasonably priced – that was an unexpected surprise!
Sherri Hisey has developed her own line of foundation paper. It has a rough texture so it doesn’t slide under the pressure foot and comes in two sizes. Both can be run through a printer so no tracing required!
I can’t wait to try this! Why not teach a paper-piecing class and let the students try it? What a great use of those 2-1/2 inch squares and other mini pre-cuts!
