BOHO Blooms is a five part block of the month that is just genius! Each part can stand alone or complete them all to create a 70 inch square of work of art! The first four panels measure 25-1/2″ x 41-1/2″. The fifth block – The Butterfly is the center 14″ square that provides the center of this heirloom. Add a border – or borders – if desired to make it fit the space.
Block #5 and Putting it all together:
The Gypsy Quilter® Appli-Fuse Mats are the perfect companion for this technique.
These mats come in four different sizes – in this case – the bigger the better!
Blocks 4 and 5 are expected to arrive later this month so ask your customers who would like the entire series so you can order them now!
I love Terry’s designs as much as her descriptions: Less hip movement and more strip movement! Scraps and strips will dance together inside the built-in border. Now THAT is a perfect description for a class!
This design can be made with charm squares for a scrappy look. Choose strips or fat eighths for a controlled look as shown on the back cover. Or make two placemats instead of a table runner.
This would be a great beginner class – and is so easy to kit! A charm pack and a yard of fabric will make two! These patterns are due to arrive the middle of April so order them now!
Kristine Poor of Poorhouse Quilt Designs is an expert on interfacings. Her latest series of oven mitts supports a heat resistant Bosal product that withstands heat up to 450 degrees.

All of these items are due to arrive the middle of next month so place your orders now!
These new patterns by Erin Underwood Quilts are a great way to showcase those fabrics or panels that are just too pretty to cut up! You bought the fabric because you loved it, so why not showcase it in one of these quilts?

This notion created by Cluck Cluck Sew is flying off the shelves and we just got in another order so it is in stock!!!
I was teaching a class on Saturday and someone thought that you put this on the diagonal of the fabric – not true! It sticks to your sewing machine – right in front of the feed dogs. The red line aligns with your needle, the blue lines are the sewing lines – 1/4″ away from the red line.
A roll is 10 yards – and since you just need a small piece – it lasts a good long time! When you are ready to remove it, it comes right off – no pesky residue!
Half-square triangles have never been easier – no more drawing lines. But remember, this works just as well when sewing snowball blocks! I can’t wait to try it when I am making my Geese in the Cabin blocks – a Cut Loose Press™ Plus pattern (#CLPPLUS001)!
Adding those triangles to the corners just got a whole lot easier! This pattern showcases the Creative Grids® Log Cabin Trim Tool for 10-inch blocks (#CGRJAW10).
Meet Cut Loose Press™ Plus. This pattern has six full pages – when a pattern is just too good to fit on one page – even if it is front and back!
This Cut Loose Press™ Plus pattern features a technique for making Geese in the Cabin blocks from the log cabin blocks created with the Creative Grids® 10-inch Log Cabin Trim Tool Duo by Jean Ann Wright (CGRJAW10).
We have even filmed a video showing how easy it is to transform a Courthouse Block style log cabin created with the Creative Grids® 10-Inch Log Cabin Trim Tool Duo into an entirely new block. AND, you are welcome to share the video!
Once you have created the blocks, twist and turn them in a multitude of ways to create your own masterpiece. The pattern includes suggestions but there are many more possibilities.
Since all 36 blocks are exactly the same – and the magic happens when you twist and turn them – the yardage requirements are the same for every version!
The ruler and patterns are in stock so order them now and let your customers know. We have already gotten requests from consumers who want to know where to buy!

Hand embroidery and English Paper-Piecing are the perfect marriage – handwork at its best! Now Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill has designed two projects around these two favorites!
The Mystery of Enchanted Hollow is a 9 month Block of the Month series. It start off with the pattern for your first stitchery, directions for English Paper Piecing the stitchery “frames”, and instructions for a pieced mystery block or 2. The quilt assembly pattern will be included with the final stitched block, when the mystery will be solved! The quilt measures 64 1/2″ x 76 1/2″.
Then there is Winter Garden…in Meg’s words….
There’s nothing as full of hope for the future than a garden waiting beneath the snow. It’s time for seed catalogs and pages full of plans for Spring! This contains a tiny bit of colored pencil tinting, dainty little embroideries, some English Paper Piecing, and a bit of easy piecing. You’ll have so much fun stitching the fir boughs!
The detail of the embroidery and the soft colors in the English Paper-Pieced frames are so stunning, I had to show you a sample that highlights the details.
And then there is Daffodil Parade – her newest installment in the Vintage Truck pattern series. March’s flower is the daffodil. This 15-1/2” x 30-1/2” wallhanging doesn’t only have daffodils on the embroidered design… the pieced star blocks look like daffodils too!
All of these patterns are due to arrive this month so place your orders now!
