Primitive Gatherings Wool Charm Packs - they've been around awhile but they keep getting better and better. From single-color Packs to a Holiday Assortment, Lisa has thought of everything - @lisabongean. We've been playing with stitching our wool appliquΓ© on Moda Barkcloth Toweling. Use it right off the roll, washed for a nubbier texture or use Lisa's Instant Antique spray for an aged, primitive look. :

Have you made one of this Mini Tuffets? Described as perfect for dolls, or a big pincushion with attitude. You can get a pattern or a kit that comes with everything but the fabric. They can be made with 9 - 1-1/4"x 42" strips, or a Layer Cake for more variety. The fabrics here are First Crush by Sweetwater. What do you think?

Happy Monday! French General Atelier de France Wovens. These soft, silky woven cottons have a high thread-count and are easy to sew with. We love them mixed with prints from French General, Minick & Simpson and others. They're also perfect used on their own for quilts, bags, pillows and garments. Look for Atelier de France Wovens in November. :

Do you do any glue-basting for appliquΓ©, piecing or other stitching? If you do, you might like the new dual-tip 2-way applicator bottle from Roxanne's. The glue is Roxanne's excellent water-soluble, thin formula that makes application easy. (Why yes, we've been experimenting with it today. πŸ˜‰) :

We're so excited for Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles - @lynnektq. While she's published dozens of books, this is her first collaboration with Martingale - @martingaletpp. The only thing we wish we could change was having to wait until November to get our hands on this book! :

A Merry Merry Chalet by Kate Spain - @katespain. We love this wonderful Layer Cake friendly quilt made with Kate's Merry Merry collection. Chalet is so cute, you could make one for summer, one for Halloween and one for the holidays! Chalet and Merry Merry are in stores now - and thank you Fort Worth Fabric Studio for the cute kit picture - @fwfabricstudio. :

Do you stitch by hand? Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings has a couple of new Primitive Gatherings Needles and these two are my favorites. Binding Needles - similar to a straw needle in length, just enough bend for flexibility and the perfect size for your favorite thread. The Big Stitch Quilting Needle is a little shorter, a bit sturdier and the larger eye will easily accommodate a thicker thread - like this Aurifil 12 wt. - or a fine perle cotton. Both come in a cute little tube of 12 needles. It goes without saying that these are what all the cool quilters will be using this summer. πŸ˜‰

Bags and badges. Drawstring bags are easy to make - fun to make - and a great way to play with colors, piecing and machine-quilting. They're also perfect for embellishments like pretty ribbons, trims and merit badges. Make them for yourself or to give as gifts! We're giving away a complete set of badges on the Cutting Table blog - the link is in the profile. :

William Morris Medallion. It's been traveling since Market and it's finally back home... for a little while. The William Morris collection is the first in Moda's partnership with the Victoria & Albert Museum, and this quilt was inspired by one in their collection. Pieced by Sarah Huechteman, quilted by Maggi Honeyman and designed in-house, look for the William Morris Medallion this Fall. :

Summer vacation means souvenir t-shirts! And making quilts for college-bound kids! This terrific new book is filled with great ideas for T-shirt quilts, and the best part is that it includes information on using this new stabilizer. If you've ever made a T-shirt quilt, you know that it can make the T-shirt a bit stiff. This stabilizer was developed specifically for this purpose and it leaves the T-shirts feeling as soft and pliable as your favorite old T-shirt. Both products are from C & T publishing and will be available in another week. :

William and Jack! That's what Melissa Corry - @happyquiltingmc - has named this quilt and it's perfect. William Morris meets Union Jack. Melissa made this quilt for Market using Fig Tree's pattern and the new William Morris collection done in conjunction with the Victoria & Albert Museum. Look for William in October.

One of my favorite things that Jan Patek - @jan_patek_quilts - does on her quilts is work the year into many of the designs. Sometimes she includes her initials. Do you personalize or sign your quilts this way? This block is from Coxcombs & Pomegranates, made with Jan's new Sycamore collection. This quilt was appliquΓ©d by Susan Stiff, pieced by Chelair Etter and quilted by Maggi Honeyman. :
