The New Cutting Gizmo

The new and improved Gyspy Quilter® Chain-PIece Thread Cutting Gizmo is now in stock! The new look incorporates replacement blades in the base.

Chain Piece Thread Cutting Gizmo


I can’t improve on the product description so here you go:

Reduce thread cutting time with the Gypsy Quilter® Chain-Piece Cutting Gizmo. It is the extra hand you need to help separate chain-pieced units when quilting. To safely cut the threads between the chain-pieced units, simply hold the fabric pieces with both hands and slip the thread into the slot on the top of the Chain-Piece Cutting Gizmo. The embedded razor blade cuts the thread quickly, easily, and safely. The non-slip bottom ensures that it will stay in place when in use. Five replacement blades and the magnetic tool needed for blade changes are stored in the base. See a video here //youtu.be/-_KRaIj3kqc

I LOVE this quilt! I was just asked to make quilts for two gals in their early 30’s and this is perfect!

I love the off-set diamonds and the tone-on-tone diamonds. It could be the perfect choice for a wedding or graduation gift as well. The pattern includes yardage requirements and instructions for three sizes: lap, twin, and queen. The diamonds are created with the Creative Grids® Perfect Rectangle Tool #CGRTMT3.

New by Robin Pickens

Wind Drifter includes instructions for two sizes. Make half-square triangles and lay them out to create a pinwheel of motion. The large size makes a great throw. The smaller size makes a stunning wall hanging.

Wind Drifter


In her words, this 67-1/2″ x 65″ quilt uses Fat Eighths prints to make a collector’s paradise. Blocks feature an assortment of jars, bowls, and vases sitting on shelves. Fun for home decorating themes or novelty prints like marbles and spools of thread, or pantry items like pickle jars and candy bowls. Patchwork piecing with stitch and flip corners make this a fun and creative quilt.

The Collector

These pillow covers offer inviting messages of “Sit down + stay awhile”. The word pillows are sized at 22-1/2″ square and the plus pillow is a smaller 16-1/2″ square. The letters touch each other and look best with a variety of colors/fabrics of 1/8 yard each or fat eighths. Great project to use scraps or bundle pleasing color palettes of fabrics for these cheery pillows. Instructions are written with separate cutting and sewing instructions for each pillow so it is easy to only make one of the pillows.
