Tuesday Tip! - Sewing Accent Triangles

Accent triangles are very easy using this tip.

Mark a line from your needle to the edge of your machine using masking tape or a marker.

Keep the bottom corner of your square on the line 
you've marked.

Simple! No more need to press or mark a diagonal on your squares.  Makes sewing these baby's a breeze! :)

Happy Quilting

FYI - Friday!

We'd like to announce the new name of our QCR Sidekick long-arm ruler. It is now called QCR Curvit. We needed to change the name because of a trademark on the name sidekick. No biggie! :)

We are over the moon about our new QCR mini! Just look how adorable it is! Here is a side to side comparison to the Quick Curve Ruler.

We have 3 new patterns using the original QCR. Chic Sisters, Chic and Jazzy and Chic Country. And 5 new Mini Patterns using our new QCR Mini Ruler. Mini Pumpkins, Mini Medallion, Mini Scope, Mini Rings and Mini Motif. 

Our new QCR Mini Ruler and new patterns will be released and available at the end of October! We hope you're as excited as we are!

We've been crazy busy making quilts, writing and testing patterns, and cutting bolts of fabric for our QCR Mini kits available at Sample Spree at Quilt Market in Houston next month. 

No rest for the weary but we LOVE it! :)

Happy Quilting!

 Sherilyn's been getting some long-arm practicing in! She's getting the hang of it...perhaps beginning to anyway! :)

And yet another QCRmini!

A mini-twist to our QCR Metro Twist! 
Here is a comparison of the regular Twist and mini Twist! So tiny and sooo darn cute!! :)
