New from Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis Quilts

This combination of bright, luscious, and relaxing fabrics brings to mind a tropical oasis! This fun little mini, which has a nod toward the traditional log cabin block, stitches up quickly, and is the perfect size to hang on the wall or to decorate a table. This quilt finishes at 21-3/4″ x 30-3/4″.

Soft and lovely, Sachet uses fussy cut small panels and simple piecing to create a charming and easy quilt. Use your favorite large scale prints in place of panels to show them off! Project is shown in Michael Miller’s Vintage Perfumery line. Project finishes at 42″ x 61″.

Colors weave in and out – without getting tangled – in this charming confident beginner level wall hanging (or table topper). Made up of simple strips, Tangled has a clean modern aesthetic that will compliment your decor. Project is shown in Benartex’s Chalk Textures line. Quilt finishes at 21″ x 33″.

These patterns are due to arrive in May so place your orders now.

The Perfect Beginner Quilt

From Cut Loose Press® by Rachelle Craig, Havenwood is the perfect beginner class or project! Just about every inch of the fabric is used in this quilt. Grab forty-2 1/2-inch strips (or cut your own), a background fabric and you are ready to go. Kitting not required!

Turning every other block creates the modern off-set look that gives this quilt its style.

The cover quilt is made with Pearl Splendor by Benartex. Or, cut your own strips with the Creative Grids® Stripology XL Ruler.

The 2-1/2″ slits are marked with squares – can’t get any easier than that! What a great way to use up scraps.
