Atkinson Designs Has a Point!

There is a reason that Terry Atkinson is a legend in our industry! She dots all of her “i’s” and crosses all of her “t’s”. When she releases a pattern, you know she has looked at it from every angle and doesn’t release it until she has a winner. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Case in point: Hat Trick Runners. The runner takes only three fat quarters and an accent fabric. Kitting is so easy! Make the individual 60 degree triangles with the Creative Grids 60 degree ruler and choose the layout you like best. Talk about a great class! Who will be able to make just one – especially when they are inspired by their classmates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sugar Sand Beach is so clean and crisp – and is made with 2 1/2″ strips. The instructions include four different sizes so you don’t have to do the math. There are also fabric requirements for fat quarters if that works better for you. This quilt is made with the Creative Grids Spiderweb ruler.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t you love the names? These patterns will be arriving soon so add them to your class schedule.

Bacon and Biscuits – a perfect name for an apron – is pieced and fully lined by turning it inside out through the arm openings.  The binding over the raw edges is extended to fit around the neck and create the ties.  Simply brilliant and oh so easy!  Both of these patterns feature her Creative Grids Round Up Tool.

Although Terry is the queen of fast and fun, her roots are in quilting.  Her newest quilt pattern – Birthday Presents – is striking in its simplicity!

The Newest from Atkinson Designs

Terry has single-handedly changed every quilter’s perception of zippers.  She has made their installation so simple that everyone can install them successfully the very first time.

ATK-186

In her latest pattern – Bubbly Bags – zippers add that awe factor when they are used as the handles in these great gift bags.  And since each bag only uses two fabrics, they can be made to carry that gift the day of the party!  Don’t you love it when the “wrapping” is part of the gift???  And, what a great way to use up scraps!

 

 

 

 
ATK-791She also released three new colors of 22 inch zippers.

Terry is such a great merchandiser!  It occurred to me that her zippers in the appropriate colors would look great in any holiday display!

Why not pull zippers that match the Christmas fabrics that just arrived and display them with this pattern?  What a great quick class.  You know they can’t make just one!
