I found myself always googling “how many x” squares in a fat quarter” all of the time, so when I stumbled upon this handy book, I grabbed it. Included in the book:
This book is great to have on hand for tips and charts on cutting half square and quarter square triangles, cutting side and corner setting triangles, which needles to use, bed sizes vs. quilt sizes and more. The corner setting triangles chart was a lifesaver for me!
This complete quide to quilt making covers everything about quilting from picking a pattern and choosing fabrics to piecing, applique, assembly, drafting patterns and more!
Have you ever wondered which needle is best for your project? This guide reviews 30 of the most widely used hand and machine needles. It’s also pocket sized at 4” x 6” to fit in your sewing bag for on the go.
You’ll surely find some quilt inspiration with this amazing resource that features over 4,000 full color and line drawing quilt blocks. If you use EQ8 (Electric Quilt) there is a software version of this book, BlockBase+ which can be used in conjunction with EQ8.
Discover various blocks and stunning secondary patterns with 100 double-sided cards, 2” x 2”, in black, white, light gray, and dark gray. Endless options, unlimited possibilities!
Get both sets for 80 quilt block cards. Combine different cards to create your own sampler quilt. These cards are really fun for quilt retreats and quilt guilds as well.
