The newest patterns from Cluck, Cluck, Sew are due to arrive this month – and I can’t wait! Tulips uses pre-cut 2-1/2 inch strips, 10 inch squares, or even fat quarters to make this cute quilt. The blocks are all traditionally pieced, and finish at 8in x 14in. The pattern includes a Crib, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King size. Aren’t you ready to stitch a flower garden?
Picnic is a simple, on-point fat quarter pattern with instructions in six sizes from crib to king. The blocks are traditionally pieced, and have a woven effect when sewn together.
Sugar Dish is made with 2-1/2 inch strips or yardage, and the pattern includes a Crib, Throw, and Twin size. Easy diagrams and photos detail making the Dresden plate blocks step by step. Traceable templates are included in the pattern, or they can be printed online at cluckclucksew.com/sugardish
Avenue is the perfect geometric quilt for that guy in your life. Pre-cut 2-1/2 inch strip and yardage friendly, it includes instructions for a Crib, Throw, Twin, and Queen size. Traditionally pieced and easy to make, one Jelly Roll with at least 36 strips makes the Throw size cover quilt.
These patterns are due any day, so place your order now!
This notion created by Cluck Cluck Sew is flying off the shelves and we just got in another order so it is in stock!!!
I was teaching a class on Saturday and someone thought that you put this on the diagonal of the fabric – not true! It sticks to your sewing machine – right in front of the feed dogs. The red line aligns with your needle, the blue lines are the sewing lines – 1/4″ away from the red line.
A roll is 10 yards – and since you just need a small piece – it lasts a good long time! When you are ready to remove it, it comes right off – no pesky residue!
Half-square triangles have never been easier – no more drawing lines. But remember, this works just as well when sewing snowball blocks! I can’t wait to try it when I am making my Geese in the Cabin blocks – a Cut Loose Press™ Plus pattern (#CLPPLUS001)!
Adding those triangles to the corners just got a whole lot easier! This pattern showcases the Creative Grids® Log Cabin Trim Tool for 10-inch blocks (#CGRJAW10).
What a great series of classes or online videos! Why not offer a table runner of the month instead of a block of the month? The designs are dramatic but simple so most of the work can be done in class. And, many of the runners offer opportunities to teach different techniques and tools.
The book is reasonably priced and most of the patterns require fat eighths so they are easy – and affordable to kit!
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!
