New Ideas For You

The geometrics in this quilt are simpler to handle if you use the Corner Beam tool from Deb Tucker.  We aim to get a sample made and a class scheduled ASAP!

 Machine embroiderers take notice!  This blocky alphabet design was part of a quilt design, but can be separated and used to create signs and banners.

We have been interested in some new fabric designs from Cotton + Steel, a division of RJR Fabrics aimed at a younger audience.  But that doesn't mean I can't like it, too!  We selected some pieces to come to Bear Patch soon.

 Elizabeth Hartman has become recognized for her cute little animal quilts.  I shared a picture last week showing one of her most popular quilts.  But now Bigfoot gets in on the action, too!

I will be making a Bigfoot pillow cover for son, Dan, because he lives in places that are home to Bigfoot.  We've already discussed the colors to use, I thought it should be more gray than brown, and Dan swears that all the Bigfoots that he has seen are dirty gray!
