Brick Road Quilt


I wanted to share with you that our "Brick Road" quilt is in the Summer 2014 issue of Fons and Porter "Easy Quilts" magazine, on sale now! 

Jamie pieced the quilt using all fat 1/4's from RJR Fabrics Cotton Supreme Solids basics. She then machine quilted it using a light grey thread and an allover circle swirl pattern. "Brick Road" is such a fun, easy quilt to make. Easy from the get go of cutting and then easy piecing. You will really enjoy making this quilt. We're so excited it made it in the Summer 2014 issue!

Until the next post Happy Quilting!

Does Your Ruler Slip When Rotary Cutting?

Has this ever happened to you? 
You are rotary cutting and only have a 3" strip of fabric left. You need to cut one more 2 1/2" strip and then it happens, your ruler slips and you have mis-cut the strip and can't use it! Well this has happened to me, even when I am trying to be so careful and precise. Oh I just want to scream, especially since the fabric is no longer available :(. 
I want to share with you a product by the Grace Company called "TrueGrips". They look like those notebook paper hole reinforcements you used in high school. They are a very thin plastic that you peel off and stick on the back of your rulers. They work great and really do help keep the ruler from slipping.  It never hurts to have a little reinforcement when rotary cutting!

Until the next post Happy Quilting!
