No seam quilt

There are some fun wide fabrics that make great quilt tops. They don’t always have to be put on the back.

See our sample and read how easily it can be done!

Quilt from wide backing at Creations Kerrville

Our “No Seam Quilt” features one of our 108″ wide fabrics. You will be able to make two throw sized quilts from 2 yards of wide fabrics.

Purchase: 2yds wide fabric
2 1/4yds Minkee for backing for each quilt
Twin sized Hobbs batting for each quilt
5/8yd for binding for each quilt

  1. Tear the 2 yards down the middle so you have 2 pieces that are 54″ x 72″.
  2. Sandwich the batting between the top fabric
    and the Minkee. Safety pin baste.
  3. Use your walking foot to do a straight line
    channel quilt running across the quilt. We
    stitched about 1 1/2″ apart.
  4. Bind and you are done.

Now for some great choices for those quilt tops.

You’ll need 2 1/4yds of Minkee for each quilt. We carry some other great colors of Minkee, but unfortunately our supplier is completely without stock until sometime in January. (Think we have it bad!)

Clara Bag from Sallie Tomato

This bag looks great made from the Legacy Faux Leather. It finishes about 10 1/2″ wide x 7″ high and 2″ deep. We love the way the purse hardware folds over and is held down with a magnetic closure.

The strap is adjustable with a stud button.

We have everything you need here.

Of course, we have all the hardware and faux leather to make this bag. The faux leather is a 1yd cut which will work fine for the bag and strap. You’ll need 1/2yd to line the bag and one of Sallie’s zippers. If you use a standard zipper, but careful as the zipper tape is not as wide. The cut opening in the pattern assumes you are using one of her zippers.

These zippers come 3 yards to the package with 12 pulls so you can use them for other bags and projects.

If you enjoy working with knits you will love the bamboo knits from Telio. The strips made a great top and one of the easiest ones is the Lark Tee.

The Lark Tee is a simple T-shirt with several
neck variations and sleeve lengths.

Sizes included: 0 – 18

54″ Fabric:
Long Sleeves: 0-10 1 3/4yd
12-18 2yds

A Dog’s Life Panel from Clothworks

Dan DiPaolo really has done a great job capturing the dog’s look and what they might be thinking!

The panel and coordinates will make a great beginning of a project for that dog lover in your life.

It’s just too hard to read the writing and see the expressions on those dogs so we have enlarged some of favorites from the panel. Each block is really cute so it was hard to choose.

Lantern Song from Quilting Treasures

QT Fabrics is the only company we know that is now doing 100% of their printing digitally. This really gives them the edge when it comes to beautiful panels. The colors and shading are almost limitless.

Lantern Song is their newest line. It has been quite a while since we have seen a Geisha Girl on fabric. We are glad to see her back.

This panel is approximately 36″ x 42″.

The colors are just amazing and it
will make the beginning of a beautiful
quilt or, in our case, a simple wall

The coordinates are beautiful digital prints on their own.
