I love the way they have created a separate pocket for the cord so you can pack your bags – even with the curling iron, small portable craft iron, or flat iron is not without worrying about damaging the cord. A fast, fun and easy project!

Terry – the Queen of Designs

The newest patterns by Terry Atkinson are easily recognizable – they just exude her style! Floating Peaks can be made from fat eighths or 10″ squares. The points are floating so they will be perfect every time! The finished size is 15.5″ x 38″ – which means the backing can be cut from the width of fabric. Or, since you won’t be able to make just one, two can be backed with just 1 1/4 yards of fabric.

Floating Peaks

This pattern features the Creative Grids 60 degree triangle ruler.

Plan Ahead for Lori Holt

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!

Quilter's Cottage Book

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!
