Introducing the Ruby Minder™

The Ruby Ruler™ is now just over a year old. Hard for me to believe! I had so much fun creating that product and getting it to market. There’s is a huge amount of satisfaction around thinking of “hey, what if…”, seemingly kooky idea (at first), and actually making it happen. Ruby Rulers have now shipped all over the world and I’ve now restocked 4 times!

Late last year, I once again recognized that familiar itch to design a new product creeping in. I was stitching a new version of the Boro quilt from Wise Craft Quilts for the live stitching sessions of #wisecraftstitchalong in my Facebook Group.

We will soon be starting our 4th stitch along in the Wise Craft Quilts Facebook Group. We’ve had great fun stitching these projects together (you can see some of the projects in the #wisecraftstitchalong hashtag on Instagram. Our stitch alongs are casual, and focus on or expand on techniques from my book Wise Craft Quilts. Its been a great way to give myself a little permission to just stitch something new, revisit the projects from that book, and sew up new versions.
For this next one, I was inspired a bit by the sunny skies and warmer temperatures we are having in Seattle right now. I’m thinking tropical!READ MORE

Details about the next #wisecraftstitchalong- Springtime Posey Wool Appliqué Banner

Wool appliqué stitch along

The pattern for our next #wisecraftstichalong, Springtime Posey

Our next #wisecraftstitchalong is beginning soon in the Wise Craft Quilts Facebook Group. For this next one, we will be stitching up the colorful, textural wool appliqué pattern called Springtime Posey Appliqué Banner. The original pattern stitches organic shapes like flowers and leaves to a background fabric which becomes a banner that can be hung on a wall or door. A beautiful pattern to get some good practice adding wool texture over texture, as well as dimensional embroidery stitches. There are endless ways to embellish this piece with hand stitched details. Its also very easy to adapt the pattern to a pillow, or stretch it over a store-bought canvas. (Which is how I plan to do the new version that I will be stitching on air.)READ MORE
