Home again from a wonderful 2 weeks in Salt Lake City, Utah. Thank you so much to all my wonderful students & friends at HMQS. This show is one of the friendliest ones that I love to keep coming back to!
Just before I left I received a shipment of Karen McTavish’s new book - Custom Curves! The current exchange rates mean that the price is fantastic….
Custom Curves by Karen McTavish - available now!
Patterns for Borders, Corners, Blocks and Sashing & Curved Crosshatching for Everywhere Else
In this book Karen McTavish offers you 128 unlimited use designs, including 5 complete wholecloth designs from 27 original elements to help you make truly unique quilts.
On the included DVD, Karen invites one of the quilting world's best innovators, Ronda K. Beyer, to teach her curved crosshatching technique. Together they teach a 65 minute lesson. No matter if you quilt by hand or machine, the designs and lessons in this book will inspire you to express your artistic talents through quilting.
Just like in The Secrets of Elemental Quilting, the patterns in Custom Curves will be unlimited use. You may use these patterns as many times as you like in any of your artistic or custom quilting ventures.

Load those leaders in a snap see video
Red Snappers are a system to load quilt tops and backs on machine quilting frames.
This rod and clamp system is available to fit 12' ($85) and 14' ($95) quilting frames. The set has rods and clamps designed to fit on three rollers. It eliminates the need for pins, staples, Velcro, zippers or basting. Quilt tops and backs are placed over the rod (inside a casing of the canvas leader) and the clamp is "snapped" down to hold the fabric securely. Make sure to specify your quilting frame length. Red Snappers are developed with Clip-n-Seal a patent pending design.
10' set is actually 114" (not currently available in Australia)
12' set is actually 132"
14" set is actually 144"
This is to accommodate the width of the carriage, machine handles and pole configurations of different machines.
Price: $AU85.00 for 12ft and $95.00 for 14ft tables.
Also available are extra 2” clamp sets for $7.50 for 6 pieces
