My friends and I are having a blog hop party, and we wanted to invite YOU! As with many parties, there will be fun and games and of course, prizes!! Sue Pelland Designs is giving away a coupon for a pattern of your choice, and all you have to do is ask for it! Leave me a comment below, and tell me which pattern you like best. You will be place in the drawing for the pattern you like most. I will randomly choose one winner for each pattern, and you may be the one! I promise to post all the names of the winners after the hop is done. Visit my online quilting shop to choose which pattern you want! All the patterns feature my Leaves Galore Templates to make your applique fast and easy by cutting the applique with a rotary cutter.
Here is my Norme size Leaves Galore Template. Isn’t it wild? This funny looking tool does so many neat things. You can use it to cut standard shaped applique leaves, up to 5 layers at a time, with fusible or without. This makes your applique a whole lot faster and easier! You can also cut vines with either side, making vine and leaf borders a cinch. Shift the template just a little bit, and you get “S” shaped curves like the ones used to make applique ribbons on my Christmas Ribbons quilt pattern. My patterns are the best way to learn to use the templates. That is, after you watch the free online video! The video is like having me come into your home for a private lesson, but the patterns are where you practice the
quick cutting methods. You can find the video on the home page of my website, suepellanddesigns.com If you haven’t visited my website or blog before, you will find it is all about saving quilters time! I have a passion for quilting and of course, inventing tools to make every quilter’s life a little easier. Three years ago, I invented the Leaves Galore Templates for Rotary cut applique. This year, I am venturing into magazine advertising, writing a book, and of course, some wonderful new patterns! I even have a new tool to tell you about, the Hearts and More template, but for now, that is a big secret. It is being developed and will come out on the market in about a year. I hope you will continue to check out my blog to learn about my techniques, and to see what is new with the secret templates, book and pattern ideas. I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday season, and have fun hopping on the blog hop! Don’t forget to tell me which pattern you wan to win below… Until then, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year!
