We have streamlined our book section and added dozens of new titles to the web store today.  Feels good to share our (almost) entire book selection with you all on the website.  (We still have a few more titles to add, but didn’t want to postpone letting you see our progress!)

You can now search by book type

search by type.bmp

or as with the entire shop, by keyword.

More simple blocks make spectacular quilts-Basix from X-Blocks

Patricia Pepe knows just what quilters want and her X-Blocks rulers deliver!

I think all quilters love the look of complicated quilt-especially when they know it’s not as hard as it looks.  The X-Blocks series of rulers use nothing harder than either 3 strips or a 9 patch block. 

My second favorite thing about them is the versatility.  You can use these rulers for so many varied design options, you are sure to never get bored.  You can see all we offer here:


Patricia has struck again with the new Basix rulers. 


As you can see, these rulers use the uber-popular Jelly Roll strips & honeybun strips.

There are also 2 full color quilt patterns that are in INCLUDED in with the Basix (2.5” strip)ruler.  Here are my versions (not yet quilted):basix

The above reminds me of a Friendship Star.  The fabric is Blank Quilting’s  Pompeii


The Pinwheel is made from Timeless Treasure’s Ruby and some Kona Solids

Fe Fi Fo-FUN is from the “Once Upon a Time” quilt book.  I dug into my scraps & I think my quilt looks like confetti!


Check out our first round of X-blocks projects and see a quick tute on how the rulers work here:
