Nobody knows how to add that awe factor to any holiday like Nancy Halvorsen! And she is back with her latest fabric line with Benartex – Better Not Pout. Of course, there is a book with 20 projects to support the line as well!
Houses are everywhere this season – including in the companion fabric line, available in a white or navy background:
She also included some stocking panels which are so cute, you will want to make some just to fill with gifts instead of wrapping paper. There are two different panels to choose from and she even remembered the cat and dog!
Each panel is approximately 2/3 of a yard.
Her tea towels are so popular that she is now offering them in packages or on bolts!
Everything is due to arrive the end of May so place your orders now!
I am so excited! The mats – in all sizes – are back in stock! If you did not get one in your hot little hands when they were first released, let me tell you that they are amazing! Gudrun Erla and I designed these – so I am a little prejudice – but the response has been amazing! We have both had ours for several months and can’t believe how nice they are!
The rack is still free if you order the assortment but you can order them individually as well:
The three larger sizes feature two sided printing – one side is designed specifically for the Stripology series of rulers:
In case you want to do an email blast on these, here are the highlights:
The Creative Grids® Self Healing Rotary Cutting Mat is double-sided. One side features one-inch grids with eighth-inch markings over the entire surface. All numbers are printed outside of the grid area, so they are always visible. Popular 1-1/2″ cuts are highlighted with white stars; 2-1/2″ cuts with white squares. Eighth, quarter, and third-yard cuts are marked with dashed lines for easy reference. On the three larger sizes: The other side is designed to use with the Creative Grids® Stripology series of rulers. Line up the fabric and rulers on the spaced horizontal half-inch grid lines. That is all you need – no other distracting markings and lines are needed!
The popular I Love my Quilting Friends ruler is now available in a smaller size!
This 2-1/2″ x 6″ ruler is the perfect carry-along size. The pink you see is actually our exclusive grip – just in oh so cute heart shapes! The center pink strip is 1/2″ wide and divides the ruler into three sections. The bottom inch features out traditional markings with a dashed 1/4″ marking along the entire six-inch length.
The top inch is divided into two 3-inch sections. One features a 1/8″ grid, the other features a 1/4″ grid.
This is the little sister to the popular larger 2-1/2″ x 10″ version.
These should be arriving the end of April so order yours now.
These templates are flexible so they bend when you need them. And they are transparent so you can fussy cut the fabric designs. Use the glue method like me? No problem! Glue away and when you are done, put them in a mesh bag and wash them in the washer!
They come in a multitude of same shape packages but also come in kits. A Twist in Time, for instance includes all of the shapes to make this gorgeous wall hanging!
They even offer kits for the Lucy Boston – Patchwork of the Crosses quilt. Separate kits are available for the border units.
The Lucy Boston Patchwork of the crosses templates also come in 1 1/4″ and for those miniaturists out there – 1/2 inch.
We have several of the templates in stock but our buyer did not order all 118! She needs your help in determining which ones you prefer so order them now!
Hocus Pocus is a darling pumpkin quilt that is cut from 10″ squares, a fat quarter, background and binding. I have included a pic of the back of the pattern so you can see the yardage requirements. Why not cut your own and use up some bolts of orange, black and gray?
Her Cardinal quilt uses ten inch square as well:
Think Spring or even Christmas???
Some are in stock now – more are expected next week so order today!
Block Talk uses 40 – 10″ squares and panels, T-Shirts or a large focal print for the main squares. Add the accent fabrics and the kit is complete!

Dwell 2 is a nice size quilt using 10 inch squares, a background, binding and one other fabric.

Kit on demand! Put pics of some layer cakes on Facebook with the names and as your customers order them, pick out the additional yardage required. They trust your judgment!
I love to make bias tape! And now there is a set of four – one-quarter inch to one inch – that are reasonably priced! Bias Tape Maker Set 4pk from Mundial # DQBST
These babies have a groove on the back that aids in feeding the fabric through the tool. This is a great demo! If you have never shown these to your customers, here are some tips:
You can now make bias tape out of any fabric to match your project AND it will be made out of the same top quality fabric you are used to!
Cut the fabric into the recommended width. Then cut the end at an angle. You do not have to cut the strips on the bias unless you are curving it in your finished design. If you are going to make curvy shapes, that is what the 45-degree lines on your mat and rulers are for – another great demo!
I spray the strip with Mary Ellen’s spray starch before inserting the angled end through the tube. As soon as the fabric emerges from the narrow end of the tube, pin it to your wool mat or ironing board cover. I use a T-pin.
Then pull the bias tape maker, keeping the tip of the iron on the narrow end of the tool so it doesn’t “splay” as it comes out of the tool. The spray starch ensures that you have crisp folds that stay in place.
Now everyone is making bias tape because they can’t get elastic for masks so it doesn’t have to be cut on the bias. These have a great retail – and will be available in May – so order them now!
This is the perfect time to be your customer’s personal shopper. Many of them don’t like picking out fabric – and you have a store full of beautiful fabrics they can’t wait to sew! These quilts are fat quarter friendly. In most cases, just add a background and binding.
Yellow Brick Road hit the top five again this week and is a perennial favorite!
The pattern includes yardage requirements from baby to king. Let them choose the size!
Boomerang also comes in five different sizes. It features the Super Sidekick ruler by Jaybird Quilts.
Stargazer is a Villa Rosa pattern that features fat quarters as well and is a generous throw size at 64 x 76″.
Brightly can be cut from fat quarters OR 10′ squares.
Just add the background fabric to complete this 60 x 72″ quilt.
Cool Cars uses fat quarters plus yardage for the windows, tires and background. It also uses the Sew Wonderful Wonder Curve ruler. Who doesn’t need a kid’s quilt on hand?
Another favorite – Lucky Stars features “floating” star points so it is perfect for beginners and experienced sewers alike.
Once again, it is made up of fat quarters and background fabric and the instructions come in five sizes! You probably have a wide selection of fat quarters cut already so you can make up kits in no time. Put up several different colorways – and when they are gone, they are gone!
