The Perfect Technique Class

I am so excited to introduce my newest booklet – Dresden Plate Quilts from Cut Loose Press™! Here is what makes this book different!

There are three different quilts in one book – all made with the same Creative Grids® ruler (Item #CGRTKAL45), one 40 pack of 2-1/2 inch strips, and your choice of background, accent, and binding fabric!

Dresden Plate Quilts

Dresden Plate Quilts includes three different variations of the Dresden plate block: one pointed, one round and a split. You have the opportunity to learn three different techniques – and three different ways to use the ruler for three times the fun!

And just look at the quality! The photography is stunning!

Order the booklets, rulers, and an assortment of (40) 2-1/2″ strip bundles. Don’t forget to have some coordinates displayed for the backgrounds and accent fabrics! I can’t wait to hear what YOU do to make it your own!

Posh Holly, etc….

I love this series of “Posh” patterns by Sew Kind of Wonderful! They are such a fun, easy way to introduce people to curved piecing and at 28″ x 38″, can be completed in a week-end.

I especially love that Posh Holly is the top seller this week. After all, we all know that women are the ones behind the scenes making it happen!

Wouldn’t she be cute paired with Posh Santa this holiday season?

What’s New from by Annie

Annie designed Bosom Buddy specifically for their #SewPink Initiative, their annual event to promote breast cancer awareness. Get your friends and guild members started with this low-priced printed version of the pattern. Each package includes 10 individual patterns* for easy sharing. The patterns are printed in full color on glossy letter stock.

Bosom Buddy - Pack of 10

If you, or someone you love, have had surgery for breast cancer — or other treatments that affect the chest or stomach area — this soft, comfortable cushion will be so appreciated. This simple project makes wearing a seat belt more comfortable: Design spreads pressure of the belt over a larger area and can be worn on shoulder or lap portion of the seat belt. It features double layers of foam padding. The sleeve wraps around the belt and is easily adjusted.

This Face Mask pattern has elastic (or fabric) ties on top and bottom to help keep the mask snug against the face and can be adjusted for comfortable wearing.

Face Mask - Pack of 25

It has pleats on each side for expansion. A flexible wire inserted at the top of the mask allows the wearer to shape the mask to fit more closely around the nose. Their are instructions for three sizes.
