Combine timeless, classic quilts with modern fabrics! Roll with the Classics is a beautiful collection of quilting patterns for those who love tradition with a contemporary touch.
Featuring 14 jelly roll quilt patterns that are beginner-friendly and use a selection of today’s pre-cut strips, alleviate the stress and just get quilting! With helpful opening sections on the quilting and jelly roll basics, you’ll then discover a dozen classic quilt projects featuring beloved designs – from flying geese and half hexies to lone star, pyramids, and more. Most quilts are made using a variety of Creative Grids® rulers and quilting tools many that were designed by Jean Ann Wright herself!.
Short cuts for cutting and piecing are also provided, all of which make the process easier and more rewarding. With Roll with the Classics, you’ll quilt beloved, classic designs while taking the guesswork out of selecting and combining fabrics and opt for modern pre-cut jelly roll fabrics.
Here are just a few of the featured projects.
There are also several mini projects to use any 2 1/2″ strips leftover! Why not use the book as a basis for a series of classes? Each month you could feature a different tool and mini project. Once they learn how versatile the tools are, they will want to make the larger projects so have plenty of rolls on hand!
Sandy says these little birds have traveled a great distance to get back to their Spring home and they need a little rest. What better place to take a rest than on a fence among the flowers. The finished size is 23 X 67 inches. The project shown features her Hello Spring fabric line from Riley Blake Designs.
This table runner features 6 little peeps and is made using two 5″ Stackers. The finished size is15 x 42 inches.
This block of the month offers six different pieced designs as well as pinwheels. Any of the blocks would look great in an individual table runner design or as a pillow for the porch swing.
Sandy actually owns a wind farm so this pattern is the perfect reflection of her life. A Hello Spring fat quarter bundle will make the wind mills. Finished size: 99 X 99″ – a queen/king size.
All of these patterns are due to arrive early next month so place your orders now.
This darling tote showcases a collection of assorted five-inch squares. Stabilizing the bag with Soft and Stable maintains the shape of the bag. An added bonus? It also accentuates the quilting on the bag. This 14-inch square bag is 8-inches wide, it is large enough to hold all of your goodies whether you are packing for the beach or a quilt retreat!
The Box Bottom and Bows Tote designed by Pamela Periera is a perfect choice for a class. The body of the bag can be made with an pre-cut pack of 5-inch squares. Showcase some coordinates that they can choose for the bows, handles and lining and you are ready to teach!
We all know that not all pre-cuts measure to the correct size so she recommends using the Creative Grids 5-1/2 inch square to trim squares if needed, or they can cut their own from fabric they have on hand. The five-inch square is easily defined on the ruler.
Piecing the squares together is fast and easy. If their seam allowances are off a little bit, it is easy to adjust the bottoms and lining to fit. Even beginners will be successful.
The bag is lined with Soft and Stable which gives it that incredible body so it can stand on its own.
Chaco Liners have been around forever but your customers may not know that they now have a pen version which fits to the shape of your hand. Pamela recommends white but if they are using light and dark fabrics, silver is a good choice because it shows up on everything!
Everything is in stock so schedule your class today!
The queen of aprons has a new design arriving next month. In her words: A half apron or a full apron – it’s your choice. Start with a half apron with modern streamlined shaping for easy of movement and hidden in-seam pockets accessible from both sides of the apron. Button on an apron top with adjustable ties. Use two yards of cotton fabric for both halves of this apron and then build a clever apron wardrobe with a mix of coordinating fat quarters to create apron tops to interchange.
Why not make a display of her top selling patterns?
The best feature of all of these aprons? Pockets! Visit our website to see all of the possibilities: Mary Mulari
Robin is one of my favorite designers. When I see one of her quilts, I don’t even have to look at the name to see who made it. Her sense of style and color shine through on every quilt! Here are three of her latest designs.
Inspired by “Jubilant Song”, this quilt celebrates large central panels going out to decorative ends. Three panels make a LAP/WALL quilt of 60 x 67″ or ONE panel can be used for a lovely 14 x 67″ TABLE RUNNER. Feature a large WOF print through the center panels or use Fat Quarters with large motifs. Add a contrasting or subtle sashing for extra decoration.
Bar Hop is a precut-friendly quilt pattern to make a 51 1/2 x 50″ Lap/Wall quilt or a 87 x 84″ Queen quilt. Charm Packs, Layer Cakes or Jelly Rolls can be used with background yardage. Small quilt has extra outside border. Use Fat Quarters OR the Wild Blossoms WOF print for large horizontal bands which contrast with the smaller vertical bars. Great for playing with color within the little bars.
Use Layer Cake (10″ squares) or Fat Quarters with sashings and background to make a woven composition with bars. Get a more shaded/tonal look with 2 background colors. This quick and easy quilt is instructed for Lap, Twin, Queen and King sizes.
These patterns are due to arrive next month so place your orders now.
