I normally don’t write about a book that isn’t due to arrive until May, 2020 – but when that book is a collaboration between Lori Holt and Its Sew Emma, rules don’t apply!
I don’t know anything about this quilt except the size – 74 x 89 inches and the cover design. But when Its Sew Emma has four out of the top five best selling books, you know it is going to be good. And, since many of you are going to Market to plan your year, this has to be on your list!
Its Sew Emma has created the perfect companion to the Creative Grids® Perfect 10 Quilt Ruler – the Perfect 5. This little sister was designed to sub-cut and trim those five inch squares – and fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. It even has a diagonal line to square up half square triangles. Versatility is the key
They have designed FIVE new Cut Loose Press™ patterns to showcase the features of this ruler. All of these quilts measure between 36 and 56 inches. My first reaction? Why not start a class and call it Oh baby! Every one of these projects is perfect for a baby/toddler quilt.

Butterfly Patch #CLPISE018

AND, they can be completed in two to six hours! Everyone needs a stash of baby quilts on hand so the class would appeal to all of your customers. And what a great class for beginners! They can learn a different technique each month and actually finish something beautiful!
Since they are all made with five inch squares, just have a large assortment of pre-cuts available with possible border and binding options. No kitting required!
Offer a discount on backing if they bring their completed top to the next class for show and tell. No UFO’s when they are this fast and fun!
The ruler and Cut Loose Press™ patterns are available now. Perfect 5 Quilts from It’s Sew Emma #ISE-933 – a book that features 17 different quilts using one to four charm packs each – will be in stock next month so pre-order it now!
These mini versions of the original It’s Sew Emma Organizers are just too cute for words! They are constructed with the same quality as the original and come in a multitude of colors…
The petal shapes bend to accommodate those smaller notions that tend to get lost in your sewing room. My favorite? This is the perfect size to store my collection of sewing machine feet. They are individually packaged so you can order a multitude of colors for an eye-catching display.

This book was written as a companion to the new Creative Grids® Perfect 5 Ruler – both due out later this summer.

But, with this book already trending, we through the rules out the window so you can pre-order both now!
The Perfect Five Ruler is a true five-inch ruler with all of the markings you need to cut and trim 5″ squares – as well as the half-square triangles, four-patches, etc. that you create with them! What a pair!

These organizers by It’s Sew Emma are the perfect gift for everyone – not just quilters! What a great teacher gift. But, if you WANT to give it to a quilter, a lady told me at the show that she uses it to store her machine feet! Now I need another one!

The Fusamats come in several different sizes and are the perfect gift for those who love fused applique. At Market, they showed the perfect companion – a pair of tweezers with a very fine point. The point is so fine that you can actually use them to place tiny applique pieces and iron them in place!
You asked for it so we delivered! Not only did we deliver, but we also partnered with one of the top pre-cut designers – It’s Sew Emma!
Our motto? Keep it simple! The square is a true 10″ square – not 10 1/2″. There are additional markings for five inch and two and a half inch squares, as well as the most popular strip widths. Trim half square triangles by placing the diagonal on the seam line. The black and white markings show up on both light and dark fabrics.

Judie Rothermel’s new collection, Basket of Scrapsby Marcus Brothers. is featured in an upcoming book by It’s Sew Emma.
This Block of the Month style quilt book is due to arrive next month – perfect timing to wash away those Winter blues.
The setting stars which frame the blocks are simply stunning. The quilt can be made in two sizes – queen and king – so you can finally make a quilt to fit your bed. And, since it is a block of the month, it can be pieced a little at a time so they have removed the intimidation factor.
Here is just a sampling of this fabric line which is due to arrive later this month:
Conversational prints combined with mini coordinates – and a check threw in (which would be an awesome binding) – who could ask for anything more???
