What’s on the QuiltieSisterS design wall now?

Would you believe me if I said a Turkey?
When Judy told me she had designed a turkey table runner quilt kit and wanted me to test it out, I thought she was crazy! When I cut it out, I really thought she was crazy with all the small pieces, but what fun it was to sew up the precision die cut pieces and quilt it for my table. Literally something you can do in a day. In fact, this is the perfect project to buy as cutting out the small pieces requires a very steady hand. Happily, our precision dies take care of that problem! This kit uses some of our favourite fabrics (Maywood Studios’ Shadow Play and Falling Leaves Collection) bringing in all the fall colours in a fun and inviting way. I love the yellow beak and the brick red gullet. While we’re designing this as a table runner, it can just as easily be turned into a wall hanging. We also think it would be great to appliqué an eye onto the Turkey to give him further personality. Below is a sneak peek at what a block will look like. If you’re interested in purchasing the kit before it’s up on our Etsy site (https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/WillowCreekByHeather), just send us a quick note at info@quiltiesisters.com and we’ll confirm your order. The kit will measure approximately 50 x 15” and will sell for $30 Canadian + tax and shipping. We expect it will be available for shipping by October 20th. It might be too late for Canadian Thanksgiving (or super early!) but it’s just in time for American Thanksgiving. I wonder what Judy will be thinking up next?! Gobble Gobble! P.S. If you don’t sew or quilt, ask us about completing the project for you. Our prices are reasonable as we love to sew and quilt our own kits!

And that’s how the Scrappy Quilt Kit came to life.....


Every quilt has a story and our scrappy quilt kit is no exception.

by QuiltieSisterS Baby Quilts easy


We both really liked the Apple Core design and felt it could really come to life in a scrappy quilt.   With precision die cutting, the Apple Core Pieces have notches on all 4 sides of every piece, giving extra guidance so the sewing results are easier and piecing consistent.   We had a lot of material to choose from and knew we would have a great selection of light, medium and dark pink, yellow and green pastel fabrics that were adorable and would work well in a scappy quilt.   This picture 

shows you the fabrics and the precision cutting including the notches that you get with this quilt kit.

Our Mom, who’s in her early 80’s, was equally interested in trying her hand at curved piecing.  She was hesitant at first, however,  she found the notches ideal to ensure the piecing matched every time.  She also found that by keeping her sewing speed slow and steady, she could control her seam allowances around the curves. It turns out she loved curved piecing so much, she has made several scrappy quilts of her own.   Mom has also started sewing another curved pieced quilt -- a Double Wedding Ring quilt kit which we have been preparing for release and adding to our store in the near future!

We backed one of our samples in flannel and a second in Minky (yes the dreaded slippery material) which made it extra cuddly.   The circle quilting Judy did on her longarm machine was another way to bring the apple core design to life.  


Intermediate and experienced sewers and quilters will find this a simple and fun quilt top to create for that special child.    The kits sells for $65.00  plus taxes.  For more information, check out the details on Heather’s Etsy page: 

We are so thankful for you and the opportunity to be a part of this amazing crafting community. It's sew fun to create!

A look at Rosie’s Garden Chevron Baby Quilt Kit


When we started creating quilt kits, we decided to focus on something all of us need on a regular basis – baby quilts.  And while we often have lots of advance knowledge of the arrival of a new baby, it can sneak up on us.   With these pre-cut kits, many of our clients find this a simple, fast and easy way to create a high-quality gift that will be cherished for years to come .
Rosie’s Garden Chevron kit was inspired by Judy’s granddaughter and is also featured on the QuiltieSisters Caricature and logo.  We’ve included a few pictures of her having fun playing on the quilt.  Like all our kits, it uses a precision die cutting system to create the chevron and triangle shapes, letting you have fun working with this simple design, without having to cut it out! 
With the pre-cut pieces, your cutting time is reduced by 95% allowing you to sew this quilt top in an afternoon.  You will also find that the chevron shape makes this SO much quicker than using half square triangles!

The kits sells for $60.00  plus tax and shipping.  For more information, check out the details on Heather’s Etsy page: Rosies Garden Chevron Order Page
