Block Heads 2 ~ Block Two!

We’re totally feeling the Block Head thing!

Are you a Block Head yet?

We’ve been invited by our original Block Head friend, Lynne Hagmeier, to join in on the fun!

In the coming weeks 13 different Moda designers will be taking turns presenting a new block and pattern. You’ll have to visit their blogs every week to find the next pattern. Don’t worry we’ll be telling you who to visit each week.

This week it’s us and we have Block 2 ready for you!

It’s a Buckeye Beauty and the pattern is available here.

I’ll be doing my best to keep up and plan on going out on a bright limb. Our quilt will be made using one of our newest collections called Badda Bing. It’s full of cherries, small flowers and gingham. It ships to the Quilt Shops in August but we hope to have pre-cut bundles to offer you in July. We’ll also be offering a Bella Solid bundle of coordinating fabrics. So watch for news on that coming soon. We want you to be able to source the most current fabrics.

If you want to get started now, any of our previous collections will blend in nicely.

So BE the Block Head and enjoy the free pattern!

Double The Fun!

Did you know we have a new Double Wide Dresden Book that’s the perfect companion for the DWD Ruler?

It’s chocked full of fun things you can make with your Double Wide Dresden Ruler.

Creating unique and easy projects with the ruler is now even easier. No more figuring out fabric requirements and hoping that you have enough fabric for your project. We’ve done all the difficult work for you.

The Double Wide Dresden ruler makes Dresden wedges in half the time. You may think that the old Dresden ruler that’s hiding in your sewing kit is the same but no way!

Our 36 degree ruler makes the wedges “double wide” so now you only need 10 wedges versus the old fashioned 20. Since our wedges are double wide, it’s half the work and double the fun.

Double Wide Dresden now allows finishing both ends of the wedge.

So no raw edges AND a secondary star is formed in the center. There’s no need to applique one of those old circles in the center to cover the mess. With Double Wide there is no mess!

The 36 degree angle of the Double Wide changes everything. It’s now even possible to sew different size wedges together and create a fun new Dresden shape.

How about combining simple pieced blocks with Dresden Wedges?

Wedges cut from simple strip sets become a Beachball!

Sew many possibilities!

The new book contains 13+ ideas for making fresh and modern Dresdens.

The pair is a must and the book/ruler combo is only $40!

Some patterns are available for individual purchase but the best value is in the book. All individual patterns are included in the book.

Visit the “shop our store” page on the website to get yours today!

Happy Quilting!

Block Heads 2 ~ Block One!

We’re so excited to have been invited to Block Heads round two! A special thanks to Lynne (an original block head) and dear friend for inviting us!

We saw so many beautiful blocks last time and can’t wait to make them every week.

I must admit though, you guys needed some brights in the mix!

Lynne from Kansas Troubles Quilting is debuting the first block on her blog today.

Please visit her blog to get the link for the Stellar Star pattern.

We’re also providing a link with Basic Instructions that will be helpful with all the patterns.

I’ve made Block One using our new Badda Bing fabric collection. It’s chocked full of cherries, small flowers and gingham.

The collection ships in August but we hope to have pre-cuts in late July.

We’ll have a limited number of fat quarter and fat eighth bundles for sale on our website as soon as they’re available. We wanted to use a very current collection so that you’ll be able to find the prints we’re using. Don’t worry if you want to get started now, our other collections will blend in nicely.

A coordinating Bella Solids bundle is in the works too!

This is sure to be another fabulous quilt that will be lots of fun! We can’t wait to see your blocks AND can’t wait to share ours in the upcoming weeks.

So proud to be a Block Head!!

Barb and Mary
