Market Project Spotlight

It’s hard to believe that the last day of International Quilt Market is already upon us. There is always such anticipation leading up to the big event and then it always seems to go way too fast! We’ve been having a great time and will post a recap of some of our favorite parts later this week. Today, we wanted to throw a spotlight on a few of the projects currently on display in our booth. Sure, if you’ve at market, and you’ve been to our booth, you’ve seen these beauties already. But, if you’re following along from home, isn’t it nice to get a little recap — give the designers a little shout-out? We think so too:).

DIRECTIONS
This project uses ¼” seams throughout unless otherwise indicated.

Step 1 – Cutting instructions:
Cut 14” long strips of varying widths from all six coordinating fabrics. The number of strips depends on desired finished table runner length.

Cut one rectangle of backing fabric that is 14” x (desired table runner length + 2”)

Step 2 – Press all fabrics to remove any creases.

HTR-3web

Step 3 – Arrange strips as desired.

HTR-2web

Step 4 – Place batting rectangle on a work surface. Place first strip of fabric at one end so that it extends beyond the batting on both sides. Quilt as desired.

Step 5 – Place a second strip of fabric on top with right sides together so that interior raw edges align. Sew, fold over so that second strip is right side up and press. Topstitch and quilt as desired.

HTR-5web

Step 6 – Repeat Step 5 until all strips are quilted to the batting rectangle.

HTR-6web

HTR-7web

Step 7 – Place the quilted rectangle on a work surface, right side down. Square up edges.

HTR-9web

Step 8 – Place quilted rectangle wrong sides together with backing fabric and cut backing fabric to size. Pin.

HTR-10web

HTR-11web

Step 9 – To secure backing to table runner top, stich-in-the-ditch along every third fabric strip. Remove pins.

HTR-15web

Step 9 – To create binding, cut 3” x WOF (width of fabric) strips from binding fabric. Place ends of two strips so that right sides are together and strips are perpendicular to each other. Pin. Draw a line in the overlapped square from the lower left hand corner to the upper right hand corner as shown below. Sew along the drawn line. Trim seam allowance to ¼”, fold so that strip is continuous and press seam open. Repeat process to create binding that is at least 10” longer than the perimeter of the table runner.

Pellon® in Houston!

Woo hoo!! It’s Quilt Market time!! The doors opened on the trade floor at 9:30am this morning and we’ve been reeling ever since. Two times a year, we get to come here to one of the industry’s biggest events… where we get to meet with distributors, retailers, other manufacturers, designers, educators and authors. We get to gush about all of the wonderful new things that have developed. New fabric lines, handy gadgets, innovative patterns, and new product launches — it can be pretty exciting. This time, our booth is jam-packed with greatness and we’re just as excited as always! For those of you not attending this weekend, we thought it only fair to give a little sneak peek into what’s happening, the products to watch out for and the projects that give them life.

Our booth — chock full of goodness!

The NItty Gritty

Market-Interfacing

Pellon® interfacings have been around for over 50 years. They are the industry go-to and have become so well-known that many people use ‘Pellon’ to refer to interfacing in general, just as we may sometimes call a tissue a ‘Kleenex’. Over the years, our product line has expanded and we now offer a wide range of interfacings and stabilizers in the areas of Apparel, Crafts & Home Décor, Quilting, Fusible Webs & Adhesives and Embroidery. If you have a sewing project planned, we’ve got what you need to get that desired professional finish! Just look at the Mabel Vintage Handbag by Alicia Wietholter of Swoon Sewing Patterns. She used Peltex® to create that fantastic structure. The bag sample shown was sewn by Laurette Chandler.

Market-FiberFill

Whether you’re looking for a basic polyester fill, a latex fill or the softest, most luxurious fill you’ve ever worked with… we’ve got you covered;). Seriously – Perfect Loft® is a personal favorite. It was once described as feeling like a pile of sleeping kittens… no joke! The Reading Corner Pouf project above was created by us for Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores using our Basic Fill. It is a quick project that will add a little personality to a child’s room or even a classroom.

Market-Notions

Our packaged interfacings make everything more convenient. In a rush and need some SF101 to finish up a project? No problem! Run to your local Fabric & Craft store, hit the packaged notions aisle, grab what you need and head to the check-out. No more waiting in the cutting line! The Reversible Placements by Karin Jordan of Leigh Laurel Studios (pictured above) are a quick and easy project that can be made with a package of 987F!

 

 

If you’re in Houston, we’d love to see you! Swing on by Booth #1248, check everything out in person, ask us anything! We are here for you!

The Jackson Nap Mat

Have you been following along with the Fusible Flex-Foam™ Blog Tour? We’ve been having so much fun this week and have absolutely adored the new patterns and projects that have come from our fabulous line-up of bloggers. There are so many great uses for the Fusible Flex-Foam — we just know that this tour is only the tip of the iceberg. We’re truly looking forward to seeing what you all make!

FusibleFlexFoam-EBlast

Today, we’re showcasing a project of our own — a little preview actually, since the full project will be available on Tuesday on The Stitch (Hancock Fabrics’ Blog) — The Jackson Nap Mat. This one is a great ‘back-to-school’ project, though it’s really intended for kiddos who are daycare/preschool age. My daughter is 23 months old and just started a new daycare this week. She still takes one long nap in the middle of the afternoon and has been out of the pack-n-play and on her very own nap mat for a few months now. She loves it and gets excited that she has a place that is all her own to snuggle and snooze.

The Jackson Nap Mat - by Pellon Projects

Our second is on the way in November, a baby boy, and though it’s a little premature, I couldn’t help but craft this nap mat for him. The Flex-Foam™ provides just the right amount of cushion, the flannel fabrics create the cozy, the handy elastic closures make it super portable and the name appliqué makes it personal and unique. I’m a little bit in love with this one!
