Wonderfil has created the perfect thread stand. This lightweight and portable all-in-one thread stand is designed to create vertical drawing, eliminating tension changes and preventing slippery thread from unreeling, which happens when thread is drawn horizontally.
The stand also comes with a detachable perpendicular drawing feature ideal for small sized spools. The Thread Tamer is able to fit any sized spool of thread and is capable of holding up to three spools in place for couching and cording so as to prevent any undesired tangling. Keep this handy little stand beside your machine to make sewing a breeze!
We all know that thread is cheaper when you buy the big spools – now we can save money AND eliminate tension issues! These are due to arrive this month so place your orders now!
The Big Easy (CGR1224) is a whopping 12-1/2 x 24-1/2 inches – almost twice the size of our most popular 6-1/2 x 24-1/2 inch (CGR24) and the 12-1/2″ square (CGR12).
It has all of the markings you love plus some additional angles – which are perfect for marking cross-hatching, mitering corners on borders, etc.
The added width is also perfect for cutting borders, curtains, and other home dec projects. Personally, I bought the ruler to trim quilts after machine quilting. I like to trim parallel to an inside border so everything is square. The size of this tool means I can accurately square up corners as well as the borders.
The Gypsy Gripper from The Gypsy Quilter is the perfect companion for this tool. This suction-cupped handle attaches to the ruler so you can comfortably move and position the ruler without straining your hands.
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!

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!
