Quilt Market Report – Part #3


I told you today we'd look at what RJR Fabrics has new for us. It's a wonderful reproduction line from one of my favorite eras in quilting. The group is called Roaring 20s and Beyond by Bestey Telford. It's based on quilts in her collection. She owns Rocky Mountain Quilts.

The 61 fabrics in this collection were selected from the three quilts shown above and will arrive in shops during March 2007.

In cooperation with Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, the pattern for the Tumbling Blocks Mosaic quilt will appear in their April 2007 issue. You'll be able to purchase a kit to make this quilt.

During the 1930s the making of Yo-Yo quilts was a popular thing to do. It was a great way to use up even the smallest scraps of fabric. Leave it to the folks at Clover to come up with a way to make that process easier.

Clover Yo-yos

The Clover yo-yo maker is similar to a little button maker where a circle of fabric is held together between two circular shapes. They are available in two sizes. The inside section is a disc, the outside is similar to a saucer. Snap your fabric circle into the yo-yo maker and sew a running stitch around the edge using the little moon shaped stitching guides along the edge. Go in through the beginning, and out at the end of a moon to make a stitch. When you've sewn around the circle, pop that baby out of the disc by pushing through the hole in the middle, pull the thread to gather the fabric circle and knot off your thread. It's one of those things that once you start, you're addicted.
