Hootie in Log Cabins

Hootie #CLPLDB007 is the latest in a series of wall hangings designed by Lisa DeBord for Cut Loose Press™ that incorporates log cabin and curvy log cabin blocks. What else can I say when you have this level of cuteness!

Hootie

Wilmington Prints has a complete line of Essential Gems that come in a multitude of colors – which are the perfect pre-cuts to display with these patterns. Most of the blocks are made with 1 1/4″ strips so these 2 1/2″ strips can be cut in half – a great way to get a variety of fabrics in a colorway!

Why not do a class? Demonstrate and teach the traditional courthouse steps and log cabin blocks (if needed) in one class. Follow up with a class on the curvy log cabin. Need a shop sample? Divide the blocks up between your employees. Since they are all done with the trim tools, all of the blocks will be the same size and the finished blocks will go together beautifully. An added bonus – everyone will know how to use the tools!

Quiltmania’s Story of the Kokeshi

In their own words: Kokeshi dolls are a traditional wooden doll, originating in the north-eastern region of Japan, and are the main source of inspiration for Megumi Mizuno’s book published with Quiltmania Editions. Alongside the well-known Daruma, another traditional Japanese figure representing a Buddhist monk, and a symbol of good luck and perseverance, Megumi has crafted an entire series of projects around these two iconic figures. A spectacular quilt plays the key role while a variety of smaller quilts and projects embellish an already magnificent centerpiece.

A Story of Kokeshi

I immediately thought this was in a similar style as Yoko Saito – and there is a reason for that. Megumi Mizuno has been a student of Yoko Saito for over 20 years. She loves appliqué and the traditional Japanese universe that she interprets in her own, never-before-seen style. Megumi’s love of handwork can be seen throughout her work, not only through her detailed appliqué work, but through her embroidery and quilting, all of which are notable for their refinement.

This book is simply stunning! The quality of the paper and photography are reminiscent of a coffee table book. But, please make some of the projects! They are all translated into English as well – and give measurements in inches as well as metric.

Her eye for detail will have you looking at every pattern in a whole different way! She takes individual elements of a pattern and showcases it as an embellishment on a smaller project so the possibilities are endless. Even the zipper pulls are exquisite!

All of you who follow Yoko Saito will love and want this book!

Boro and Sashiko

Defined as: Boro (Japanese: ??) are a class of Japanese textiles that have been mended or patched together. The term is derived from Japanese boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired. Boro textiles could be stitched or re-woven together, with many layers often added for warmth.

Boro and Sashiko Harmonious Imperfection

I had never heard the term Boro but it is the perfect description of this technique! Combined with Sashiko, “mending” has become its own art form! The book is due to be released by C & T in December. Wouldn’t it be a great gift???

Doesn’t it remind you of crazy quilting – but the shapes are squares and rectangles? What a great way to learn traditional sashiko stitches! I remember my grandmother having patches in her sewing kit to repair the knees in our jeans. Keep a supply of these on hand to not only mend but to add a decorative touch to your next purse; clothing project; or quilt. Wouldn’t these be great borders on a quilt label???

The Handy Pocket Guide to Sashiko is the perfect companion to this book. It is selling so fast that it is hard to keep in stock but don’t worry – more are on order.

We also carry a wide variety of thread, flosses, kits and needles. Your customers who love redwork, will love this!

Masks and Supplies

Now that masks are mandatory in many areas, there is a whole new demand for them. They are like reading glasses – you need one for your car, your purse, by the front door…you get the picture!

The Gypsy Quilter® has developed these nose bars that help keep the mask where it needs to be.

The Gypsy Quilter Mask Bar 100ct

They come in packages of 100 and are due in the warehouse this month. Use these self-adhesive Mask Nose Bars to customize a mask you already have. Simply remove the release paper and stick on over the bridge of your nose. Or, you can sew a channel into your mask and insert the Mask Nose Bar to make it permanent. It is washable but don’t iron over it.

Now, they have become a fashion statement and my kids want an assortment of colors. The Gypsy Quilter® has done it again. Next month we will have elastic in five yard put ups in a multitude of colors. Each box includes three packages.
