My intention was to post a blog on my new products this weekend but this past week has been one of the craziest around here. Not only am I dealing with getting ready for quilt market with deadlines here and there....whizzing past me one by one, but we had some family stuff going on too. But now I am back in the saddle and ready to take it to the finish line with quilt market only 3 weeks away.
So here is the debut of the two brand new strip patterns that are being printed as we speak. They should return from the printer tomorrow or monday, eager to be stuffed into bags and head out of here. They both include 3 different sizes in the pattern and they only require 2-1/2" strips!
This is a great pattern, it goes together really fast and is a great stashbuster. It honestly doesn't take longer than 5 hours to make, start to finish. I just love how the colors just pop off the background, the quilt is so playful, it really reminds me of those colorful Lifesavers candies.
GE-137 Strip 'N' Dip
This one was so fun to make. You have to cut 45° diamonds from the strips which you can do with your regular ruler if it has the 45 degree lines on it. I however got this great set of brand new Stripper templates sent from Marti Michell to play with, and they are fabulous. There is a 45° diamond in the set of 4 templates, so I used it to cut out my diamonds. As you are cutting, you are cleaning off all the dog ears at the same time, which makes putting the diamonds together so easy. All seams match up automatically, it's great. So I highly recommend those templates if you are going to make the quilt, although you can use your ruler too.
I have one more pattern coming out next month, that is a large quilt with two great bonus quilts included in the pattern. I will show you those next.
Tell me what you think of these new patterns in the comments and I will randomly pick two comments from this post and send you a brand new pattern hot off the press.
Ps. Linda, I haven't gotten your adress yet, send it to me quick so I can ship you your prize;-)
