Snuggle Up in Extra Wide Cuddle

I absolutely LOVE Cuddle and the luxurious feel that it gives to my quilts.  What is not to love????  It has a nap that feels like velvet and wears beautifully.  And, if you are learning to machine quilt, it hides all of those rookie mistakes!

They have just introduced a 90″ wide version in eight of their top selling colors!  At around $20 a yard, it is cheaper than piecing a back with standard 40″ wide cottons!  I’m hooked!

These are due in next month – but can be pre-ordered now.  Just click on the blue item number to take you directly to our website!

If you are using a longarm machine, roll the selvedge ends.  There is no stretch parallel to the selvedge so the backing won’t be distorted when clamping.

If you are using a domestic machine, use a basting spray.

No matter how you quilt it, I prefer using a cotton batting.  In fact, I have talked to several machine quilters who will not quilt it without a batting so be sure to ask!

These fabrics would be a great showcase product for upcoming events!  Order now to be the first to have it available – you may want to order multiples since it comes on 10 yard bolts!

Fat Quarters as Backings – a Chart

It is that time of year….many of us were snowed in a LOT this winter and had a chance to finish a lot of UFO’s.  And now, all of those UFO’s need quilted.

Why not offer your customers an alternative to traditional backings?  Fat quarters!  Sometimes piecing a back from fat quarters and actually save them money – and is a great opportunity to add interest to their quilt.  An added bonus?  They use up their stash!  Don’t you love guilt free sewing???

Have a fat quarter sale for those who don’t have a stash – or need to add some coordinates to get to the size they need.

These measurements assume that the fat quarters are squared up to 17″ x 19″ before sewing.  Not all fat quarters are cut accurately – and some people wash their fabrics – so these measurements reflect that.  Then, they are sewn with a 1/4″ seam….

2 x 2 (4 Fat Quarters)
33 1/2″ x 37 1/2″

3 x 3 (9 Fat Quarters)
50″ x 56″

4 x 4 (16 Fat Quarters)
66 1/2″ x 74 1/2″

4 x 5 (20 Fat Quarters)
66 1/2″ x 93″

5 x 5 (25 Fat Quarters)
83″ x 93″

5 x 6 (30 Fat Quarters)
83″ x 111 1/2″

6 x 6 (36 Fat Quarters)
99 1/2″ x 111 1/2″

What a great way to reduce your stash!  Be sure to have a lot of batting on hand.  Now that they have the tops and backing ready – machine quilting is next!
