2020 Market Blue Bag: New Leaf Stitches

Wishful Thinking and a Wish List

Check out these extremely popular items quilters from around the world have on their wish lists.

Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers

The Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers continue to be the top selling notion for many, many shops.  Why, because it is so simple and accurate for trimming half-square triangles, hour-glass blocks and three-piece triangle squares.  And did you know half-square triangles can be easily created using the strip/tube method?  A perfect item to demonstrate!  Please contact me if you’d like the link to the video I’ve created just for shop owners.  Retail $31.95 (MAP), minimum order 6

By popular demand, larger versions of the Slotted Trimmers are now available in two sizes.  Just like the original pair, there is an A and a B trimmer.  To trim half-inch sizes up to 10 ½” use Trimmer A2.  Trimmer B2 is for trimming full-inch sizes up to 10”.  These are sold individually with a retail price of $26.95 (MAP), minimum order of 4 per size selected.

Clearly Perfect Angles

For over 10 years the Clearly Perfect Angles is still a strong seller. Spending time drawing diagonal lines is never popular and with the “cling” always in position quilters can get more stitching done.  Besides the alignment key right on the product there are other markings making this notion multi-functional.  The quarter-inch guides are helpful in keeping seams accurate; the horizontal 1/4” line helps when adding bindings and the 5/8” line is not only for garment sewing but can be used to create bonus blocks.  All the info is provided on the instructions.  Retail $11.00 (MAP), minimum order 6.

And everyone’s wishful thinking can be expressed with two of my favorite quilt patterns. Aren’t you ready to Spread Your Wings? This quilt uses contemporary twist on a traditional setting.  The asymmetrical scrappy design features the latest version of All a Twitter from Hoffman Fabrics.  Any focal fabric would be perfect with this pattern, however.  To create additional sales, the pattern highlights the use of the Slotted Trimmers and Clearly Perfect Angles. Retail $10.00, minimum of 3.

And my top wish is to be able to Gather with my friends and family again.  This is my all-time favorite quilt and is perfect for a row-of-the-month. Each row is a teaching moment including notations on my friend from EvaPaige Quilt Designs’ Accordion Sewn HSTs.  Retail $15.00, minimum of 3.
