Tula Pink and De La Luna

De La Luna is the new fabric line by Tula Pink which is due to arrive in June.

This line not only has striking colors, it also features three colorations of silhouettes which offer amazing design potential. Carl Hentsch has designed three different patterns that highlight these images – or use your own!

The ovals on this quilt were created with the Creative Grids Oval Always tool designed by Karla Alexander.

Crazy Hearts for Valentines

You all bought the Spiderweb Tool #CGRKA6 to make the Crazy Christmas Trees – one of the top 10 patterns! Now Karla used the same technique to create Crazy Hearts. Both are Cut Loose Press™ patterns.

Now that you are familiar with the ruler, it is time to explore the full potential of this gem! Here are the other patterns that support it – and they are breathtaking!

 

Who would have thought that one tool could create so many different looks???

Zen Chic

I love everything from Zen ChicAnd her latest patterns, due to arrive next month, are stunning! She manages to bridge that gap between traditional and modern – and combines her designs with exquisite quilting that highlights her design perfectly. I made these images as large as possible so you could see the detail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her eye for detail is breathtaking! Don’t you already want to add these to your bucket list for the holidays, 2018?

Jelly Roll Rugs

This jelly roll rug uses forty-two 2 1/2″ strips to make a 30″ x 44″ area rug.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pattern isn’t coming in until later this month so I don’t know exactly how it is made but the back of the pattern says you need 100% cotton batting, jean needles, 1200 yards of thread and a sewing machine that will sew a 5mm zigzag stitch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember when these were in every room – and in front of every door – in your house? This pattern is already in the top 20 and it hasn’t even arrived yet. I can see this being a huge hit with all of those ladies that sold the country out of clothesline when they were making baskets! What a great possibility for a great and unusual class!

Kim Diehl’s Whatnots Club

You know you are a legend when your latest book isn’t due to be released until May – and is already one of the top-selling books on the Checker website!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I haven’t seen this book yet so we will rely on the publisher’s words: Welcome to the wonderful world of Kim Diehl. On a splendidly small scale! Kim’s little quilts have three big benefits: they’re stash friendly, they’re quick to finish, and they’re as cute as can be. Now quilters can create a wonderful variety of pint-size quilts in Kim’s signature style. Enjoy 18 projects from Kim’s Simple Whatnots Club, previously available only in individual-pattern form. Learn techniques for petite patchwork, invisible machine applique, and cozy wool applique; then use completed projects as wall quilts and toppers or follow Kim’s lead and display projects in other creative ways. As always, Kim shares many of her ‘Extra Snippets’ that will make every quilter a better quilter.

You know this woman is a rock star – and the photography in the book is worth buying the book even if you were a member of the Whatnots Club! The book includes 18 projects. Order it now so you are part of the initial order!

Bias Tape the Easy Way

I met this woman at Market and was so impressed with her demonstration that I kept grabbing people and having them watch her as well. Do yourself a favor and buy the book. The tools are great but to truly use them to their full potential, you need to see what Pauline does with them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see, there are several package options so you can choose the sizes that are most conducive to your quilting needs. Pauline uses them to insert into decorative bindings, her own method of quilt as you go, as well as more traditional uses. These tools make easy work of the process. Visit our website to see all of the possibilities.

When a Little Dab Will Do Ya

This was one of the hottest items at Market – and it is due to arrive this week. I can’t wait to get my hot little hands on this baby. I love Roxanne’s Glue-Baste-It and now it comes in a smaller, more convenient size.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dip and Dab Bottle retails for just $3.25 – and is refillable. In their own words, this incredible applique glue is 100% water-soluble, dries in minutes, holds firmly until you want to loosen it, and does not feel stiff when dry. It contains no dyes or waxes or harmful chemicals and is pH neutral.

At this price point, what a great event gift! Display them at the register so everyone will see them. But order them now because it is going to be hard to keep these babies in stock.

Doug Leko’s Latest – Stashtastic

Stashtastic is Doug Leko’s first book with Martingale and he pulled out all of the stops. These twelve quilts are all featured in two different colorways so they appeal to everyone. Added bonus? Each pair of quilts is a perfect lesson in choosing fabrics.
