The latest from Laura Heine

Innocence is a wall hanging that is charming and has a special meaning for Laura. In her words: This is a personal quilt. I made it with scraps that I have collected over a period of time. I am hoping that you will make it personal for you too. All pieces were scraps or no bigger than fat 1/8’s. Use the swatch photo as a guide, or change it to suit yourself. All proceeds of this pattern will be donated to Sisters of the Movement. Check them out at sistersofthemovement.org

Newest Release From Creative Grids

The newest Creative Grids® tool, Kitty Cornered, developed by Deb Heatherly is simply brilliant! It is one of those blocks that I always paper-pieced in the past because I just couldn’t sew those odd angles accurately. Well, not anymore!

Creative Grids Kitty Cornered Ruler

Make eleven different sizes of the Kitty Cornered block – two at a time! Cut the odd angles with the tool, then trim them down to size after sewing. Fast, easy and accurate! Make two Kitty Cornered blocks at one time – the printed cutting chart is right on the tool! Create eleven sizes from 1 to 6 inches – and every half inch in between. The ruler comes with fully illustrated step by step instructions or watch the YouTube video to see a demonstration.

And, of course, there are sooo many companions. Daddy’s Ties is a Cut Loose Press™ pattern and is the perfect choice for a memory quilt. I am making this one with a friend who lost her husband a few years ago. We are using his ties – and oxford cloth shirts for the background squares. What an heirloom!
