Nine-Patch Gatherings

The presses are rolling and we should hopefully have books maybe today? Just in time to pack the trailer for Houston…we all have been busy making new swatch charts for our wools, cutting little 5″ Charms of our wool textures, assembling #24 Chenille needles (from Bohin) into our own needle packs to sell.  I can’t stand not having needles to sell to our wool customers, so we are packing our own and not relying on the distributors to have enough on hand for us.  We also have been making 3 1/2″  &  5″ 100 print light/dark charm packs to go with our cool book…It is 24 pages of all color!  14 samples of little quilts ranging from 9″x12″ to 30″x 40″ ish for the biggest ones.  Our book is a workbook for turning 2 squares into 2 nine patches, not using the strip method, and not cutting 9 squares either.  Start with this…and you would end with this….Then you can sit down with a pack of light and dark charms and make tons of nine patches one day…the next you decide what you are going to make with them all!  The quilts in the book are cute as all heck done little, but who’s to say you can’t do them bed size or lap size?  The possibilities are endless.  I will have the books, charms and bundles and kits available Monday on the site, hopefully.  Just a little preview here…and look for more new stuff too!
