Laura Heine has simply outdone herself! Her new Aviatrix pattern features a caption that reads “Great Things never come from comfort zones.” This adorable pig sporting a cap, glasses and wings finishes at 34 x 29 inches.
Laura’s collages are always popular and the next two – due to arrive the first week in March – are sure to tug at your heartstrings! Caleb is dressed to seat a queen. While Seawell is ready for a swim.
Special Delivery has already arrived and would be the perfect centerpiece for a baby shower! And this angel – in real life – is simply stunning. I had an opportunity to see it at Road to California.
When twenty patterns using the same technique are in the top 100, you better take notice! Many shops are paying their rent with these patterns and classes by Laura Heine. What about you???? If you are a little nervous, start out by reading her book on choosing fabrics. But remember – everyone who takes a class will want a copy as well….
Many of you know Laura Heine because you have fallen in love with her collage quilts. Now she has combined forces with Peggy Larsen to create My Kinda Town. This paper-pieced pattern includes full sized patterns.
This 42 x 54 inch quilt is a perfect size for a wall hanging or baby quilt! It is actually a combination of nine different blocks so it goes together rather quickly. I know I am still in holiday mode – but my first reaction? The Grinch would love this town!
Laura Heine’s collage quilts are taking the industry by storm. Every shop that teaches a class, continues to teach them over and over again! But, many of you were hesitant because this was outside that comfortable box we love. Well, it is time to step out of that box because Laura has now written a book that explains – step by step – how to pick colors and fabrics for these works of art. This is not a pattern – it is the perfect companion to ALL of her patterns – and a must read for anyone teaching a class!
These projects can still be done in time for Christmas so check out these popular choices. For those of you who have a furry member of the family…
What seamstress wouldn’t like this work of art in her sewing room?
Or bring back memories of Old Blue…
Why not start your New Year’s resolution today – and throw that box out! Add some classes to the schedule that will expand techniques for your current customers – and may actually introduce a new audience to quilting. After all, no perfect seam allowance is required!
