Angela Walters and Flying Geese

I can’t wait for you to watch Angela Walter’s video.

Her machine quilting tools have been so popular that we haven’t been able to keep them in stock – but they are NOW!!! In this video, Angela shows how to use Slim, one of the characters in her arsenal of tools. The entire demo is done with a Cut Loose Press™ pattern created with the Creative Grids® Ultimate Flying Geese Tool.

   

The magic happens on this Cut Loose Press™ pattern – Wild and Free featuring fabric by Tula Pink and solids by Kaufman.

What a great series of classes! Learn how to use the flying geese tool, make the table runner, and then machine quilt it yourself. Talk about a trifecta!

Miss Rosie has Scrappy Style

I love everything this woman does!  Studying her quilts is like getting a Masters in color.  She is the queen of combining a multitude of fabrics that are somehow pleasing to the eye.  Just look at these quilts:

Olio has a template to make this pattern easier.  And the Jumble patterns are charm pack friendly.

Some of these quilts were made with specific fabric lines – and when that is the case, they are listed on the pattern – but ALL of them are great stashbusters!  Take some time to really study the color pic of each quilt before choosing your own fabrics.  See how she uses lighter fabrics and blocks to make the entire quilt glow?

Separate your stash into country fabrics, brights, batiks…you get the idea.  Then start cutting!  Or, buy a collection of your favorite fabrics as a base palette.  Then add complimentary fabrics from your own fabrics to make each quilt truly your own!

 

A New Twist for the Twister

It isn’t often that a notion catches the imagination of an entire industry – and becomes a staple.  But that is exactly what happened with the Twister – and the sizes that followed: the Lil Twister (Item #LILTWISTER); the  Bitty (Item #PRI946); and the Itty Bitty (Item #PRI321).

This series of patterns by Handcrafts by Jennifer shows just how versatile this tool is!  Many of them can be made in different sizes just by choosing a different size of Twister.
