How To Use Triangle Paper

This week, we’re re-introducing the Cake Mix Recipe Cards from Miss Rosie’s Carrie Nelson. These wonderful little papers, designed to be used with Layer Cakes (10″ square precuts), make quilting so precise with so little effort. If you can stitch on a dotted line and cut on a solid line, you are good as gold!!! Then, the inner designer in you can come out and play a little and make all sorts of fun projects with the units. We also played a little with the Cupcake Recipe Cards that work with Charm Squares (5″ precuts). I always have a blast

Creating a Quilt Using Custom Rulers

This week, we wanted to show you some designs from Jaybird Quilts. What we like about this designer is that she uses unusual shapes, makes the process of construction pretty easy and the end result is wonderful. Her designs tend to “look” a bit more contemporary, but if that’s not your bag, then they also work up great in more traditional colors. As an enticement to have you try Julie’s designs, we’ll give you 20% off on 3 of her rulers: the Sidekick, Super Sidekick, and Hex N More. So pick a pattern (we’re showing you both sides so you

It’s All About Baby Quilts This Week!

This week, we’re a little more optimistic that Spring is right around the corner.

So, we spent this past week whipping up several baby quilts that might work for a little one in your family or friend circle. Obviously, if it only took us a week to do all 10, then none of these are a trial! See ya next week!Marty & Teri PRODUCTS REFERENCED:Woodlands Flannel Bramble Patch Fox Bramble

Tips To Create a Super Easy Quilt!

You all know that Teri and I can talk the leg off a table, but get us started on easier ways to do things and we can go on for days – I guess it’s our Mom coming out in us. With 7 kids we always called her the Efficiency Expert!!! So this week, we’re talking about sashing. It seems like such an innocent topic, but it really has many nuances. A lot of the time, we just do what the pattern tells us to, like good little quilters, but sometimes, we need to be brave and go off-road and
