FALL FAVORITES & MUST-HAVES Posted on 4 Sep 00:00 , 0 comments

0914: favorite ... fresh flowers, life favs, and some favorites from the studio ... we all have our favorites: coffee cup, flowers, dessert, people and puppies but then there are also those "work" favorites, those go-to patterns and collections that keep our studio running smoothly. I wanted to highlight some of the gotta-have patterns for me that you may have overlooked. Now when there is such a great sale going on in the studio might be a good time to think about checking these and adding them to your pattern library.

My all-time favorite collection: 1008 SUN COMPASS+  A complete collection packed with all the patterns you need for completing a wholecloth quilt including two large medallion-sized blocks which make designing and stitching quick and easy. (Thankyou Dani Fisk for sending me the photo I used in the collage.)

Let's face it, edge-to-edge quilting is the bread and butter of our longarm business and if you're like me you can on occassion find yourself using the same patterns over and over. Let's spice it up a little by looking as some different files you might like to offer your customers (or piecers reading this blog might like to request of their longarm quilter.)
