Autumn Splendor was originally published in 2006 and has been off the market as a Quiltworx pattern for nearly 10 years. They routinely get requests to bring it back, and have decided it is time to run another limited release of this design. They have made some updates to the pattern layout (decreased the number of overlapping circles and have now included square up templates and options for adding expansion borders). The pattern is a relatively straightforward design, a good introductory pattern, and includes many of Judy’s trusted techniques including floating points, speed stacking and cutting, and traditional curved piecing. This pattern is created as a Collectors Club Design which means there are only 500 available for purchase. Pattern size 57 x 57

This stunning queen sized quilt is a “work session” pattern. That means that Judy has done YouTube videos to accompany the techniques in this pattern. It includes instructions, cover sheet, yardage information, foundation papers and laser cut applique’ pieces.
For those of you who have always wanted to take a class from Judy, this is the next best thing AND you can start and stop – and rewatch – as often as you like.

Judell is a master photographer and this cover has to be my all time favorite. Old Jalopy is a generous 26 x 74 inches and includes 2 different techniques: the pinwheel and the sunburst design.
The Suncatcher pattern includes enough foundation papers to make 3 of these beauties. With a design this cute, who could stop at just one? At 30 inches square, it is the perfect size to add a touch of class to an outdoor table.
Pocket Compass measures 40 inches square so it can be used as a wall hanging or a table topper. And with only one block, it is a perfect opportunity to learn or teach the Quiltworx techniques!
Indian Summer is a generous throw. The pattern features a more traditional block framed with a gorgeous piano key border.

This is such a great product that I can’t believe I missed it – or all of the different ways I can incorporate it into my projects! Helen Stubbings of Hugs ‘n Kisses has thought of everything!
Helen Stubbins says: Applique paper is a revolutionary product to use for perfect turned edge Applique. It is semi water soluble, semi transparent, has a light fusible on one side and can be used in many techniques. Use for: Glue stick applique, needle turn applique, English paper piecing, foundation paper piecing and as a temporary stabilizer.
How great is this for labeling your quilts? I cut out a heart and ironed it to the wrong side of a fabric. I used a glue stick to turn the outside edges. Then I used a pigma pen to do the labeling and stitched it to the back of the quilt! Done!
It is pliant right out of the package but maintains its shape when the glue is applied. Helen of Hugs and Kisses is also known for her English paper-piecing so she also offers several sizes of hexagons, etc. so you don’t have to cut them – or remove the templates later!
These pre-cut shapes are available in hexagons, circles, clamshells, diamonds, and every other shape you can imagine! Visit our website to see all of the available shapes and sizes
