Crazy Love

Don’t you love the name?

Crazy Love

This Cut Loose Press™ pattern #CLPKAL014 features four letters that are all pieced individually after the angles are cut with the Creative Grids® Spiderweb Ruler #CGRKA6. The width of each letter doesn’t matter. Each letter can be trimmed after the sashing strips are added so that the height of each block is exactly the same before they are sewn together.

Karla Alexander is one of my favorite designers because she thinks WAY outside of the box. In this case, she created all of the cutting instructions to work with directional fabrics. And, the pieces are oversized so they are trimmed to size after piecing the angles. With big pieces and built-in fudge factors, even beginners will be successful. The angled pieces are all cut with her Creative Grids® Spiderweb Ruler.

Creative Grids Spider Web Quilt Ruler

What a great shower or wedding gift. The guests could sign the backing fabric.

At 18 x 53 inches, it would make a statement hanging above a bed! I’m thinking about framing each letter individually and hanging them as a headboard.

If you are a visual learner, a video tutorial will be available soon. Everything is in stock so place your orders now.

Valentine Pouch

I already want to make these for everyone I know!

Be Mine Heart Zipper Pouch

When my kids were growing up, I would write them a love letter every year for Valentine’s Day. We would do a scavenger hunt complete with hokey poems…Roses are red, Daddy is blue; go to the place where he takes a poo…you get the picture!. Emily Dickenson, I am not, but when you raise four boys and a girl, you have to consider your audience!

I had already decided to bring back that tradition for my kids and grandkids this year. Because of the pandemic, I will send poems and letters to the parents and pass on the tradition. But wouldn’t these bags be great envelopes for the letters as well as a few treats?

Check out these features:

BAG DIMENSIONS: 8in Tall x 7in Wide x 3in Deep – 9.5in at the top when closed.

Bag can be made using one mini charm pack (42 – 2.5in) squares.
Pattern includes instructions for two different ways to attach the zipper.
Added Bonus option for a smaller bag.

Valentine’s Day is on a Monday this year so why not hold a class on the Saturday before. If you have embroidery machines, an initial or monogram in the center of that heart would add the awe factor!

These patterns are due to arrive next week so order them now!
No exposed seams.

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.

Gift Bag Ornaments Kit

There are lots of kits to choose from.

Kit Warm Feet Ornaments
Christmas Critters Ornament Kit
Kit Warm Hands Mitten Ornaments
Charcoal Mittens Kit

These kits are a great way to keep those mask makers engaged. This is my plan:

This year I made GALLONS of Chex mix, filled quart jars, and put them in gift bags. My children and grandchildren had a ball leaving these gifts on the doorsteps of friends and on the desks of their favorite teachers. Hopefully, we will be able to celebrate the holidays this year up close and personal, but we want to continue the tradition. I drew squares the size of each woolfelt piece onto freezer paper. Then, I traced the templates for that color within the square. Since my family and friends are making multitudes of these, we can run as many copies of the template sheets as we have kits – and only have to trace them once. Now, the instructions say to trace the templates right onto the wool felt, but ironing the freezer paper onto the woolfelt with a warm iron was much faster. Why not provide a template sheet to your customers as that “value-added” bonus with the purchase of each kit?

This Gypsy Quilter Appliqué Freezer Paper is over-sized and worked well!
