We have been waiting & waiting for this New little wedge Iron from Clover and are SO happy its finally here! They had an earlier version years ago, that we LOVED and it was discontinued, and it was impossible to find a replacement that we liked as much. But finally they came out with this new version, that is lighter, easier to hold, has a pointier tip, and gets hotter on the high setting. We use this iron for our Machine Applique method, which requires a tiny pointy iron point, but I also love to keep it handy on a mini press board right next to my machine. This is a new gadget that you will use & use! It is one of our favorite new tools!!

Whether your are doing Applique by machine or hand, when the edges are turned under accurately, it looks just beautiful, and your Quilts will last long enough to become heirlooms. And who doesn’t want beautiful applique results!? Follow the link below to download out tutorial:
With a little bit of practice, tiny applique images like the ones we made above from the Story Quilt Books will be simple for you. We are making a Winter Theme applique quilt that incorporates this little girl & dog. Stay tuned! We think its going to be fabulous!

I am always excited to see the new Quiltmania Special Children Magazine when it comes out each year! We especially love all things for kids and so its always a fave. This year is the 2nd year in a row that we have had one of our original designs featured in it, so its a little extra special! It has just started showing up in the U.S. stores, so look out for one, they always sell out quickly. Our quilt Sleepytime is included alongside 19 other adorable projects. I like them all, but there is a quilt called “I Spy” by Trish Harper that is my very favorite, its pictured below.
Isn’t it sweet? And below is our Sleepytime Quilt, my other favorite!
We still have some kits left, just click the link below if you would like to order one.

We love everything about these fabrics from Nadra Ridgeway for Riley Blake. We have followed Nadra on Instagram for a while (she is @ellisandhiggs) and were excited to hear she had designed a fabric collection. Once we got our hands on it, it totally matched up with the fabulous fabrics we had envisioned in our minds. Blooms & Bliss has lots of colorful, fresh small prints that we are always wanting. Today we chopped a bunch of it up, and we cant wait to show you what we are making…
We have put together Fat Quarter Sets & Half Yard Bundles of our favorites from the collection as pictured above. Click here to shop for some.
