Cindi McCracken Shines

I love the way Cindi’s mind works. Just look how she cut apart just four Hoffman panels and created a stunning quilt! Talk about letting the fabric speak for itself! And, since there is very little waste of fabric, it is very affordable.

Mountain Stream creates an ombre effect which gives the illusion of the sun shining on the water.

Along the Lake adds a graphic element with black highlights.

And, Hashtag is just plain fun!

All of these patterns are due to arrive the end of June so order them now.

Traditional with a Modern Twist

I love everything by Cindi McCracken!  She takes traditional blocks and adds a modern twist that combines crisp, clean lines and fabulous color choices.

Stars at the Lake combines the charm of a traditional churn dash block with a simple paper-pieced block – the perfect opportunity to expose your customers to paper-piecing without intimidating them!  Broken Dishes is paper-pieced from strips so it is very impressive without any of the frustration.

Any Which Way is striking in batiks and Fading Light can be made in a week-end.  Both would be great additions to your “masculine” quilt pattern collection.

Cindi uses the new Stripology Squared ruler to cut her strips and recommends it in some of her patterns.  Why not host a class and “race” with a student who is known to be fast?  You use the Stripology Squared and they can cut with a traditional ruler.  Once they see what a time saver it is, the tool will sell itself!

Simple Paper-Piecing Makes Striking Quilts

I love everything Cindi McCracken does.  Her quilts feature geometric designs that seem to move.  When I am looking for a masculine quilt, she is my first choice – but they translate just as well for any gender or decor.

All of these patterns are paper-pieced and the foundations are included in the patterns.  Cindi has worked with Judy Niemeyer for years and has learned paper-piecing from the best.  These simple but dramatic designs are the perfect introduction to this technique.  Why not order them today?  They could be the gateway to a customer base that embraces everything paper-pieced, and that is a very good thing!
