Heather Peterson of Anka’s Treasures had one of our favorite booths at Spring Market, hands down. Why? Because of all the amazing, fresh and colorful quilts that lined her booth – all the ones that came from these new books and patterns! See what I mean?? She’s pretty beautiful and model-like herself…look at her strike a pose 😉 (This photo is Heather’s btw — Heather and our Debbie!)
Simply Sixties, Sizzlin’ Sixties, and Stop, Drop, and Roll are just sheer awesomeness. Here are some teaser intros to each one. And, we’re giving away 2 copies of her Sizzlin’ Sixties book! Just comment on this post to win.
Stop, Drop, and Roll
A collection of 9 Jelly Roll and Fat Quarter Friendly Projects. – Has life gotten too busy? Well, STOP worrying, DROP what your are doing, grab a Jelly ROLL and get busy sewing! You’ll soon get caught up in all the fun and have a project completed in no time. Jelly Rolls are my favorite precut and I love how they save you cutting time so you can get to the fun part (sewing) quicker! It also takes the guesswork out of the color coordination, so that’s one less thing to worry about. Don’t have a Jelly Roll? Fat Quarter and size options are also included in each pattern.
I was working in my studio one day, experimenting with a new 60-degree ruler that I had recently purchased. I starting cutting and sewing and was soon caught up in all the different possibilities for the 60-degree angle. The more I played, the more design possibilities I saw! I found that I could make many different block options and those blocks could then be laid into many different setting. Those ideas grew into the theme for this book. Nine different quilts are featured, but feel free to substitute different blocks into different layouts for you own unique design. Step-by-step instruction, along with many helpful hints make these 60-degree angles much easier than they look. Try it – you won’t be able to make just one! Jelly Roll and Fat Quarter Friendly.
It uses the same angle, ruler and concept as the Sizzlin’ Sixties book, but it’s designed with large scale prints in mind. The pieces are quite large, so it really shows off the fabric. The larger pieces also make it easier to assemble, so it’s great for the advanced beginners that wants to try out the 60-degree angle, but feel that they aren’t quite ready for the smaller pieces in Sizzlin’ Sixties.
