Free Tutorial Tuesday - Re-Useable Snack Bag

Today's free Tuesday Tutorial features a re-useable snack bag.

The inspiration for this project came from traveling a long distance by car to my son's hockey game.  Of course, we needed snacks!  

In an effort to be eco friendly, I decided to create this zippered snack bag out of fabric.  It's approximately the size of a gallon bag, which holds a decent amount of snacks.  It's washable, re-useable, easy to put together and there are no raw seams!

Click here to download the free instructions.

So whether you're traveling for the holidays by car or plane, going shopping or sitting to enjoy a movie - have a re-useable snack bag filled with snacks handy!  Use your favorite fabric to customize it to each snacker's personality!

 Also, be sure to check out our selection of zippers.

TBT Quilt

For Throw Back Thursday, here is a picture of a pillow made from a Pineapple quilt block.

This was intended as a Christmas pillow, and therefore is made using red, green and white fabrics.

The Pineapple quilt block really pops with just the right placement of light and dark value fabrics. 

I called this pillow Peppermint Candy.

 Check out all our red, green and white sale fabrics this week!  And don't forget to use your coupon code, GADGET to receive $5 off your order of $50 or more!

Holiday Gift Ideas

The holidays are quickly approaching and we have some great ideas for gift giving.

Do you have a quilter on your holiday gift list? Are you participating in a secret santa at your guild? Here are some of our favorites that would be great gifts for the quilting enthusiast on your list.

The Bohin Chalk Pencil is definitely a favorite!  We all need to record markings now and then and this pencil, which is mechanical style, marks an extremely fine line with chalk.  No sharpening is ever needed as it works on the same principal as a mechanical pencil with chalk refills.

You can't go wrong with Clover Wonder Clips - they are a must have in every sewing room!  These wonderful clips are perfect for holding bindings in place or for any thick seams.

The Hearts and More Template is an amazingly engineered template that makes hearts and soooo much more!  Click here for a video demonstration.

The Quick Curve Ruler is a great tool for making easy work of challenging curved piecing.  You've got to try it to believe it!

Who doesn't love 2-1/2" strips?  Whether it's Bali Pops or Jelly Rolls, or your very own coordinated set of scraps cut into 2-1/2" strips, the strip tube ruler is a must have tool for quick piecing.  Check out the many companion patterns available to the Strip Tube Ruler and Strip Tube Junior.
For your shopping convenience, we now have eGift Certificates available in various denominations.  Place in cart, checkout and a unique code will be emailed to privately along with a printable, downloadable eGift Certificate.

Free Tutorial Tuesday - Fabric Cane Cover

Today's free tutorial is for a fabric cane cover.

The inspiration for this project came from a recent trip to visit my dad who was recovering from several surgeries, in a rehabilitation center.  While I was there, I noticed there  were a lot of people walking with canes. I love fabric and I thought it would be nice to take a small piece of fabric and make a cane cover! A fabric cane cover can be holiday/seasonal, color coordinated with an outfit or a reflection of a mood or hobby.

This pattern includes french seams which prevents raveling through regular use or washing.

And the cane cover can be embellished with beads, buttons, crystals, bells, bows - the possibilities are endless!

With elastic top and bottom, this fabric cane cover slips on and off easily and quickly.  Everyone with a cane needs a fabric cane cover!

Click here for your free downloadable instructions for a cane cover.

These go together very quickly and use a minimal amount of fabric.

We Now Have eGift Certificates!

With the upcoming holiday season, sometimes it's difficult to get just the right gift for someone special on your list. 

Some people have what appears to be "everything" and if they didn't have it yesterday, they will most likely have it today.  So what do you get for them?

Some people have completely different taste and we couldn't possibly pick something to please them.

Or, perhaps, you're expecting a gift from a loved one who doesn't have the same taste as you.

The solution?  An eGift Certificate to!

Our eGift Certificates are available in denominations of $20, $30 and $40.

Throw Back Thursday - Bow Tucks Tote

I love the Bow Tucks Tote pattern!  Over the past 5 years, between personal totes and gifts, I've made about 20 of these totes.  The instructions are thorough and easy to follow, and these totes go together very quickly.  The look can be totally different based on fabric choices.  Here are just a few of the ones I've made.

This is the one I use at Christmas time, including a cel phone pouch:

This is the one I use for hockey games, along with a couple of accessories (zippered bag and tissue holder):

And here are a few more that I have given as gifts:

Which one is your favorite?

Sneak Peak - Clear The Jelly

At, we are excited to announce and provide you with a sneak peek of a exclusive that will be pictured in the Dec/Jan 2015 issue of Quilter's Newsletter.  Be sure to check out the Quilt Bee section for Clear The Jelly!
The inspiration for Clear The Jelly came from an online game that has over 93 million people playing every day, including myself!  This quilt is 44" x 44" and consists of 6" squares with simple applique shapes.  The fabrics used represent elements of the game.  The quilt design, Sticky Buns, by Anne Bright, was used to simulate additional game elements such as whipped cream and licorice.
