A Slice of Summer

I love this pattern By Patch Abilites, Inc. for so many reasons besides the fact that it is absolutely darling!

Watermelon Place

It is a Quilt-As-Ya-Go project so you can actually finish it in a class. Don’t you love instant gratification? And your customers will love that they leave the class with it totally done.

I am showing this to you now because you may be able to repurpose some of those reds and greens from your Christmas fabrics. (Pretend there isn’t snow on the ground.)

You need five different reds and a green stripe so it would be easy to kit.

And, it is a great beginner class. It would be a great opportunity to teach them about battings, fusible battings, and binding. Who could ask for anything more?

Patch Abilities is now offering many of their favorite patterns in a machine embroidery format and a version that includes the embellishments. Check out our website to see the options available.

This pattern is due to arrive next month so place your orders now.

On the Go with Row by Row

Row by Row is just around the corner and Checker sponsored their schoolhouse in St. Louis.  These new patterns by Patch Abilities are so darn cute, I couldn’t wait to show you!  What a great way to display the license plates…









These are both twelve inches wide so you have a choice of a wide variety of Ackfeld hangers.  This stacked suitcase version is 22 inches wide, but there are hangers for that size as well.

Wouldn’t these be great hanging on a wall???  They are 40″ wide so the backing does not have to be pieced.  They are 12″ wide so they are really reasonable to kit.  Many include button packs that add the awe factor.

Display them on a wall with the kits below them.  The kits – including pattern – will be very reasonable.  Why not take it a step further and offer it as a BOM mailing program?  We are entering travel season so visitors can sign up to receive a kit a month in their mailbox!  How fun is that???
