Its a beautiful day here in Vermont and I am making progress on the Talking Points Cat's Eye layout using the Reclaimed West fabrics. Only 12 more blocks to make plus some borders.
If you are following the Timeless Treasures blog week you will see many other beautiful projects made with this amazing fabric line.
We are offering the Talking Points ruler set on special until the end of November. Enter coupon code 'Reclaimed West' to receive a $5 discount. Click here to order.
Stack your fabric and cut at least 8 layers at the same time. The template material won't slip - simply use a straight edge aligned slightly over the edge to avoid cutting into the template and slice with a rotary cutter.
The slides that follow show all the steps in creating a finished block. For the first six pieces, place each new piece under the ruler to check for size and position. Mark points for the line you will be sewing through the holes and trim anything more than 1/4". This is because the first six pieces grow the block wider with each piece. If your edge is too narrow you might not have enough fabric at the seam allowance sides of the block.
After the half point has been reach, the pieces get progressively narrower - the issue of not enough fabric at the sides is no longer a problem.
Slides are better to review than a video - you can pause at any point, move forward or backward at your own speed and hopefully get a complete sense of how to use the Talking Points Ruler set.
...and actual progress so far. The fabric was here when we returned from Houston Nov 5 but a retreat Nov 7 to 9 and a wedding out of town Nov 11 to 13 has prevented me from finishing the project. So far I love, love, love the fabric (did I say how much I love it?). Check back in a week or so to see the finished quilt.

I hope everyone is enjoying the 4th of July celebrations this the birth of this great nation!
The photo above shows a pre-printed interfacing for a Piece-by-number Snackmat. The blue lines represent where the sew lines go and the red extensions are used for alignment. The letters indicate which fabric to use and the numbers are the step numbers.
This same system with the pre-printed interfacing is used in all our current Piece-by-Number Snackmat kits as well our soon to be released Piece-by-Number Placemat kits.
With the Snackmats we currently have 4 pattern designs with multiple fabric choices for each design.
We have been working hard to get our Snackmat product released. I think we have some great patterns and some cute fabrics. We have lots of other pattern ideas and the fabrics.....the sky is the limit. To launch the Snackmat we are offering $1.00 off and free shipping through the 4th of July. We had the inspiration for the Snackmats while attending the Pittsburgh wholesale show and have been working hard on concept to reality since then.
The basis for this piece-by-number/ quilt-as-you-go concept is a pre-printed piece of interfacing showing the pattern layout of the pieces and where to sew. The kits come with the pre-printed interfacing, detailed instructions, and the fabric as shown on the front of the kit.
We hope you stop by and check out our snackmats. Now we are working hard to get our piece-by number/quilt-as-you-go placemats ready for release.
We have also started offering Timeless Treasures Tonga Treats Strips and 6 Packs with free shipping through the 4th of July.
Till next time....keep quilting and being creative.
