Her photography is stunning. Additional images like this are available on our website so you can use them in your advertising they are just a right click away….
Bespoke Stars is a stunning modern take on a six-spoked star and a great way to showcase a favorite collection of fabrics. The pieces are large and uncomplicated making them quick and easy to put together. A terrific contemporary quilt for any modern streamlined decor, this pattern is easy enough for a beginner to intermediate quilter. It includes step-by-step instructions with plenty of illustrations, through every stage, to make your quilt top: rotary cutting, piecing, and assembly. This one is made with the original Creative Grids 60 Degree Diamond Ruler.
This pattern is due to arrive next month and the rulers are on order so place your orders now.
These silicone oven mitts are available in three colorways: green, red, and transparent. The pattern is the same – just the color of the silicone is different. Once you have the pattern, you can purchase additional silicone overlays in your choice of colors.

If you are not familiar with Villa Rosa Designs, they are simple quilt patterns that are printed like post cards, and are so reasonably priced, you won’t be able to resist buying several! They are the perfect little something to let a quilting friend know that you are thinking of them.
Here is a taste of their latest releases which will be available next month.
The affordability and simplicity of these patterns make them the perfect choice to kit and offer as classes! Why not buy several and start a display by the register?
These are simply brilliant! Clover Wonder Pins are a revolutionary new pin concept to temporarily hold layers of fabric together instead of safety pins and straight pins!!
They are strong enough to pierce multiple layers but thin enough to go through fabric without leaving holes. Wonder Pins are great when a sturdier thinner pin is necessary to pierce thick layers without bending. No need to pick up fabric when pinning.
Pin through layers of fabric and simply push the closure down. To unpin, push down and over.
I like to pin the pieces together as I am cutting out a quilt so I don’t loose any – but then I am always bending traditional straight pins. Not any more! Who would have thought that after all of these years, Clover would invent a better safety pin! They are in stock now so place your orders!
Keep your quilt pieces organized using Pinnable Quilt Block Markers from Purple Hobbies. Use your own pins with a Quilt Block Marker to pin a letter or number to your fabric pieces.
Choose from a variety of bright colors to contrast with your fabrics. Each letter and number was custom designed to make them easy to read at a glance.
Each set includes the full alphabet (A-Z) and numbers (0-9) for a total of 36 pieces.
Use them to mark the sewing sequence when cutting strips for a log cabin quilt. Or organize the individual pieces when paper-piecing. Use them to keep track of the blocks for your Block of the Month projects. Or mark them in order when laying out blocks for a quilt! Use two colors to easily separate the pieces of a block that uses mirrored pieces.
The possibilities are endless so check out our website for color options. You will want more than one set! These are due to arrive any day so place your orders now!
I love the clever notions created by Purple Hobbies LLC – the genius behind the Blade Savers that you all know and love. Now she has introduced a magnetic pin cup available in two sizes and six colors.
The pin cup hold the pins upright so you don’t get “stuck” with the pointy end. It comes in a case with a screw top lid for safe storage and traveling.
The Large Magnetic Pin Cup holds 100 pins up to 2.1 inches in length. The standard holds pins up to 1.5″ in length.
These are due to arrive next week so visit our website to view all of the color and size options.
Carolina Moore has created two Cut Loose Press™ patterns that feature Creative Grids® tools and Gypsy Quilter® Pre-Cut Battings – with stunning results!
Are you ready for all the summer BBQs and picnics? Your hot dish will take center stage when presented in this Americana Casserole Hot Pad!
This stars-and-stripes motif is created using the Creative Grids® Strippy Stars tool (CGRDH2) by Deb Heatherly. This pattern uses the Casserole Dish Hot Pad Pre-Cut Batting and Insulating material (TGQ104), which has two layers of batting and polyester and metalized layer to help keep your hot dish hot. It perfectly fits a standard 9 by 13 inch casserole dish. With just three fabrics, this pattern would be simple to kit with a red, white, and blue fabric from your shop’s color wall. But, why not kit it in Fall and Winter holiday colors as well? After all, stars are always in season and these would make great hostess gifts. A great class option. Students can learn how to use the Strippy Star Tool and actually finish the project in class!
These 2 for 1 plate cozies are darling and simple to make! They feature the Pre-Cut Plate Cozy batting from The Gypsy Quilter® (TGQ102) which is microwave safe, with fun piecing using the Creative Grids® Kitty Cornered Ruler (CGRDH5) by Deb Heatherly.
The pattern is written so that two plate cozies can be made with two contrasting half-yard-cuts of fabric. Since you can make four plate cozies from one package of pre-cut batting, you may want to double your fun, or in this case quadruple the fun , by buying four half yard cuts of fabric. Students could easily finish a set of these in class AND learn how to use the Kitty Cornered Tool. We all love instant gratification.
