May Sew Fun at RMSV

by Cathy Ellsaesser, posted on

I’m waiting on the May flowers that the April showers are supposed to bring. But first, it has to quit snowing! Despite the recent snows, a sure sign spring is in the air, is the beautiful spring colors our Sew Fun presenter has incorporated into some of her projects for May Sew Fun. Whether you want to quickly sew up a quilt in fresh, spring colors to brighten your home or get a head start on quilts to keep you warm in the fall, we have everything for you in May. Here’s a sneak peak at a couple she’ll be showing us this week.

Simply Strings

Simply Strings: A Modern Approach to a Traditional Quilt Block is a fabulous collection of patterns that will bring a fresh look to an old time favorite. Its cross-over appeal will speak to improv piecers, scrap quilters, stash busters, modern quilters, traditionalists and more. Enjoy the art of string quilting.

This book includes 12 modern projects from one time-honored block. You can find patterns in sizes and styles to meet all of your creative needs. Rana Heredia provides simple techniques for free-form piecing and fresh uses for scraps of all sizes.

Tula Pink: The Quilting Collection

Make the quilting of your quilt just as special as the piecing with the intricate designs on Tula Pink: The Quilting Collection. Tula Pink has adapted her signature designs for quilting on your embroidery machine in the hoop.

A bold mix of 44 animal, floral, and geometric motifs, this collection will be your go-to for quilting your favorite project. Also includes 2 jumbo hoop designs and 6 quilt labels. There’s even a pattern and instructions for creating a striking quilt designed by Tula herself.

Here are just a few of the beautiful designs on the CD.
