The name alone is enough to want me to buy the pattern! Puff In Boots is a raw-edge appliqué beginner friendly project. This charming 18″ x 18″ puffin donning rain boots and a hat, can be transformed into a wall hanging, a pillow, or a quilt block. Trace the pattern pieces onto double-stick fusible interfacing, such as Steam-A-Seam 2, and apply them to your fabric. Cut the pieces, place them on a background and fuse them together using an iron. Finally, finish off your project by topstitching the pieces together, and voila! Your creation is complete! The pattern comes with an instructional brochure, four 8.5″ x 11″ pages of pattern pieces printed at 100% scale, an 18″ x 18″ placement guide printed at 100% scale and an 11″ x 17″ color guide printed in full color.

New from Cut Loose Press™ Patterns

Big Color Balloon by Jean Ann Wright uses just 4 blocks to make this show stopper – the perfect table topper. All the bright colors can be cut from 2-½” strips—what a great pattern to showcase (and use up) strips in your stash. The high contrast between the wide logs and the narrow background strips highlights the center circle to perfection.

The Creative Grids® Skinny 10″Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool is required to make this topper. Since every round is trimmed before the next round is added, perfection is assured!

Franken-Patches by Sarah Fulks is a great stash buster. Or buy packs of 5-inch squares. The blocks are sub-cut after piecing so the finished design is much easier to achieve than you may think!

The instructions are written for an over-sized throw but you can add or delete blocks to make the quilt of your dreams. You may even learn a new technique along the way.

Hexagon Alley adds a modern twist to the traditional hexie blocks. Ann Anderson has designed this stunning quilt by creating rounds of hexies using the markings on the Creative Grids® Hexagon Trim Tool. Four and six-inch hexagons are surrounded by one or two rounds of strips to create this unique design. Combine them with 8-inch hexies and tiny triangles to complete the “alley”.

Ann continued the hexagon design into the quilting which adds that awe factor to this showstopper.

The hexies in this design are pieced with the Creative Grids® Hexagon Trim Tool by Jean Ann Wright. Why not try fussy cutting some of those hexies to create your unique design?

The patterns and rulers are in stock so place your orders now!
