May 2019

In recent months,

I’ve had several requests for my favorite notion

for making half square triangles,



They make a somewhat tedious task fast & fun!

For just $6.00 +shipping they’re a bargain!

While visiting Mary & Patrick’s Thangles booth

at the AQS quilt show in Paducah last week

I also noticed this interesting ruler.

Although I’m not a “ruler guru” I was intrigued.

It fits perfectly on a jelly roll strip

& helps to cut many sizes of rectangles (or squares if you like).

I only sell notions on my website that I use with my patterns, but…

I have these now too.

I guess I’ll just have to get busy &

make a reason to use this cool new ruler!

The ruler & Thangles are now on my website here.


if you’re sewing my A Merry Christmas To You pattern with us

& you’re making the large version of the quilt,

you’ll want the 1″ Thangles in the upcoming weeks.

Week # 13

Are you keeping up with our Christmas Quilt-Along?

Are you having fun?

I hope you’re doing both!

This week is another quick & easy one.

This week is “9 Patch Block” week.

Again refer to page 5 to make the little 9 Patches.

These instructions are also very simple

so they take the other half of the page from last week’s star blocks!

You’ll see that you need 8 red, 7 green & 2 blue blocks.

They’re scattered across the quilt so I included the illustration

to quickly show you where they are in the quilt.

It will probably take more time to cut the fabric

than to actually make these blocks!

Either way, I hope you enjoy this week’s work.

Please keep posting your progress on our “Sewing With Susan” Facebook group.

I love to see your progress.

Just Keep Sewing…
