The Zipper Jig

What is a zipper jig? It acts as a third hand when adding a pull, or changing a pull, on zipper tape or an existing zipper.

Zipper Jig Gypsy Purple

Use The Zipper Jig from The Gypsy Quilter® to easily add a custom zipper pull onto zipper tape. The Zipper Jig will accommodate size 3, 4.5 and 5 zipper pulls and tape. Available in Bohemian Blue and Gypsy Purple.

If you are like me, and didn’t know the what those numbers mean, they are the width in mm of the teeth in the zipper. The traditional zippers that we grew up with are usually 3. Zippers that are 4.5 and 5 have become increasing popular, especially in bag making.

Zippers have become a fashion statement. Most companies, including Atkinson Designs, By Annie, and Sassafras Lane (just to name a few), offer zipper pulls in assorted colors that can be switched out to add that awe factor.

These zipper jigs are also the perfect companion to zippers by the roll and makes a great demo! Both colors are in stock and available now.

A Fall Feast

Hank and Harriet combine courthouse-steps log cabin blocks and curvy log cabin blocks in a variety of colorways to create these adorable pumpkins. They are a part of a trio of patterns that, when combined, showcase Fall in all its glory!


Since the templates for Hank and Harriet are oversized, they are not printed on the pattern. Instead, you can download them from the Cut Loose Press™ website. Since they are formatted on 8-½ by 11-inch paper, the templates can be printed directly onto any fusible available in sheets such as EZ Print Featherlite, no tracing required! Or add your own personality and draw your own.

Both of these patterns require the Creative Grids® log cabin and curvy log cabin trim tools for 4″ finished blocks.

EZ Print Featherlite 8-1/2in x 11in 10pk

Cornelius is the third member of this trio.

Cornelius combines courthouse-steps log cabin blocks in a variety of colorways to create this cornstalk that was definitely knee-high by the 4th of July. This one is made with just the Creative Grids® Log Cabin Trim Tool for 4″ finished blocks.


Since the blocks are all trimmed with the Creative Grids® Tools, they are all exactly the same size so these projects go together like magic. They are like putting together jigsaw puzzles. Once you do one, you will want to do them all!

O’ Christmas Tree

I had a friend who worked on an intricate holiday embroidery pattern each year. She would bring it out after her decorations were up and do handwork during the season. When the tree came down, the project was stored away as well. When it was actually done, we were both kind of sad because it had been so nice to revisit it each year. I am gifting her this pattern this year!

O Christmas Tree

The embroidery center panel measures 19″ x 16″ and should keep her busy through several holidays. To make it extra special, I will piece the surrounding blocks that turn it into a 56 1/2″ throw. What a great way to combine both of our talents and create more memories!

The pattern is due to arrive in December, so why not order yours now and start your own tradition???

New from the Pattern Basket

Christmas Wishes is a perfect three month “block of the month”. Make the trees one month, the presents the next, and put it all together in the third month. Fifteen trees or 15 presents are very doable in that time frame. AND they will have plenty of time to get it quilted and bound by the next holiday season!

Add that awe factor by tagging the presents with family names.

Merry and Bright is another pattern that could be broken down into a three month series of classes. Do the small stars one month, the plain stars another, and the intricate pieced stars in the final class. While this is shown in holiday colors, it would be a perfect choice for a summer patriotic quilt as well.

Merry & Bright

North Star is a stunning lap quilt. The background fabric makes the stars shine and is a perfect backdrop for some exquisite quilting.
