Well the fun just keeps on coming! This week we are happy to present 3 more videos!
The first is about our book “Simple Quilts Easy as 1, 2, 3″.
This book features 12 Easy quilts. We like EASY quilts and easy doesn’t need to be boring! The projects in this book can be made quickly and will showcase all those special fabrics that you love and have carefully added to your personal fabric stash.
These are my favorite quilts from this book …
The book is available on our website or at the Fat Quarter Shop. You get 12 quilts for $14.99!
The second is about our “3 Times The Charm Book 2″ This book features 21 quilts.
There are 7 different quilt patterns shown in 3 different color ways! All are made using charm squares. Another great “go to” book when you want to create something from a charm pack.
This is my favorite quilt from this book …
I’m showing you 2 of the different color ways here. Fabrics really can change the feeling of a quilt! This one went from a throw to a wall hanging!
This book is also available on our website and at the Fat Quarter Shop. You get 21 projects for just $9.99.
The third video this week will show you a quick tip for squaring up half square triangles.
Half square triangles are my absolute favorite thing to make. I love to make them bigger than I need and trim them to that perfect size. I always purchase extra fabric to allow me to do this.
To win a copy of both of these books simply leave a comment below telling me what your favorite block is to make.
The winner will be chosen sometime on Friday June 27th. Good luck to all!
I hope you enjoyed the first 3 videos last week! This week we have something a bit different … only 2 videos and I have to admit these are my favorites!
Before we left for Austin and the Fat Quarter Shop, Kimberly asked Mary and I to bring our favorite notions to demonstrate. When she first made this request I said “I’m really not a “notions” person.” My needs are simple and I sew simple. But as I started looking around my sewing room and gathering my things … I noticed that perhaps I really am a “notions” person and maybe that’s why I think I sew simply!
The next thing we started thinking of was how to present our favorite notions in a different format. We wanted to try something that was “different”. Not just an infomercial and that’s how the idea for “Notions Talk” was born. I hope you find our little spoof on a “talk show” entertaining and informative.
Notions Talk …
The second video is something we thought would be really funny. If you’re a Jimmy Fallon late night TV fan you might have seen his “Thank You Notes” or “History of Rap” segments.
We couldn’t think of a precut wrap song and none of us can dance or wanted to wear baggy shorts down on our thighs so the alternative was “Thank You Notes”.
Hope you enjoy our “satiric tribute style” explanation of the different precuts.
Precut Dictionary Thank You Notes …
My favorite notion of all time really is my SideWinder!
Those crazy cute Clover Wonder Clips are now in second place! Kimberly will be happy to know that I have them in a cute container. For some strange reason it’s easier to sew my binding corners with them?
Thread Heaven has now been bumped into third place but still dear to my heart. It works well and that glitter gets me every time.
My favorite precut is still the fat quarter bundle. What can I say, I just like larger chunks of fabric.
To win this tribute to my favorite notions …
Simply leave a comment below telling me what YOUR favorite notion is. The winner of these 3 items will be chosen sometime on Monday June 16th.
Happy sewing with your favorite notions and precuts!
