Countdown to Clamshell

With one week and two days to go until the Clamshell show, I'm busy putting the finishing touches on my two new patterns.

Five Yard Dash was so named because it uses five 1-yard pieces of fabric and is quick and easy to make. It measures a versatile 56" x 68". This is a great selling tool for shops that sell packets of one-yard cuts.

Patty Piper Pieced a Pair of Painless Pointless Pinwheels is a super quick, super fun pattern that yields not one, but two quilts. Simple blocks are stitched, then cut in half. The lighter halves make one top, the darker halves another. Use totally different border fabrics and you have very different quilts. What a great idea for siblings who share a room! Quilt shops/teachers take note- this is a great pattern for classes. Not only for beginners but for flannel quilts, charity quilts, holiday gifts, you name it. The pattern contains directions for 48" x 60" cuddle quilts and twin size bed quilts!

See you at the show!
