We just got the info on Jo Morton’s new book this week. It isn’t due to arrive until the beginning of June but order it now so you don’t forget!
If the cover is any indication, you will love it! This is what the publishers say:
Elegant, timeless, traditional, and beautiful–that’s the magic Jo Morton brings to the quilts she creates. This latest collection of patterns captures Jo working in a larger scale, with quilts for displaying, draping, and cuddling too. Find fresh twists on quilt-block favorites, from Wild Goose Chase and Kansas Troubles to the humble Nine Patch. Packed with smart tips for choosing fabrics, piecing by hand, pressing for success, sewing triangles, and much more, quilters will love visiting Jo’s captivating world, where vintage is always in style.
Right now there is a windchill of 22 below in Ohio and it seems like winter will never end! Then I looked at this Prairie Sisters collection by Lori Woods and believe that Spring is right around the corner. And what an amazing early Spring it will be when these arrive in February!
Whether you choose the grays, pinks, or both – your customers will love the soft colors in the dots, checks, and prints!
The fat quarter packs are divided into three different colorways. Your customers won’t be able to choose – I know I can’t!
Just look at this detail:
She has darling patterns that showcase the fabrics as well:

The latest pattern by Krista Moser is due to arrive any day. It can be made as a table runner as well as a quilt. In fact, wouldn’t this make the perfect baby quilt??? Her fabric choices are stunning and the strip piecing makes this project a piece of cake!
These projects feature her 60-degree Diamond Ruler by Creative Grids®.
Many of you have paid your rent with the Crazy Christmas Tree pattern from Cut Loose Press™ and ruler. Same ruler – different season: Crazy Hearts pattern by Cut Loose Press. Don’t you love these fabrics???
Made with the Creative Grids® Spiderweb ruler – both the patterns and ruler are designed by Karla Alexander.
Hens and Hearts is a pieced version created by Pam and Nicky Lintott – and features the Creative Grids® Multi-Sized Triangle Tool.
Don’t you love it when you find new patterns for your favorite tools? And these are ALL winners!
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!
These new five yard bolts of 25-inch wide cork are due to arrive in March. I got to see them at Market – and couldn’t stop petting them – they really are that special!
They now come in designs and colors. Here are just a few examples…..
Pickle Pie Designs have several In the Hoop Designs that support this material. The luggage tags are gorgeous and include vinyl. What a great class – showing them what needles and threads to use to get such eye catching results! Buttonholes and top-stitching? A piece of cake!
The coasters would also be great wall decor in a teenager’s room. Can you see their name or school spelled out above a door??? Or “quilt shop”; “classroom” – you get the idea!
A little goes a long way. Sue O’Very used it to accent and reinforce the corners on this little purse; and as an accent on the zipper. Just a little adds a touch of class.
But let’s not forget the Corky Wallet from Sassafras Lane. It has been in the top 100 patterns for months. What a great Make and Take!
Get organized now! Order the cork, the patterns, and designate a space right by the register. They may have questions – and you will be right there to answer them!
I know – the holidays just ended and I am talking about Fall already! But it is best to be prepared and you will be ordering fabrics soon so lets plan how to use them!
Witches Night Out by It’s Sew Emma is due to arrive in April and is a perfect class! Pieced pumpkins are repeated multiple times in the quilt – a great basis for each lesson. Other Halloween favorites are scattered throughout! Start collecting those oranges today!
