Bear Thread Designs Website Now Features Quiltsmart!!

Bear Thread Designs' website has undergone a complete change in the past two months and we are still adding new things. This week we have added a whole list of Quiltsmart patterns and projects. 

Quiltsmart projects are creating using printed interfacing making traditionally difficult patterns easy! Now you can make a Lonestar Quilt without having to face diamonds and Y-seams. Now you can make it using printed interfacing and rectangles. The same method is used for making Tumbling Blocks quilts.

Bear Thread Designs now carries:

  • Black-Eyed Susan Snuggler Pack
  • Bow Tie Snuggler Pack
  • Lone Star Snuggler Pack
  • Apple Core Classic Pack
  • Double Wedding Ring Classic Pack
  • Grandma's Fan Classic Pack
  • Liberty Crown Classic Pack
  • 58" Lone Star Classic Pack
  • Mariner's Star Classic Pack
  • Mary's Flower Garden Classic Pack
  • Mini Mariner's Compass Classic Pack
  • Pumpkin Seed Classic Pack
What's the difference between a Snuggler Pack and Classic Pack? Snuggler Packs are generally smaller sizes, perfect for tablerunners, baby or lap size quilts. Classic Packs are usually bed-size or allow for multiple smaller projects.

But quilts is not all we have. If you're looking for some quick and easy projects for Christmas gifts, try one of the Quiltsmart bags, created using printed interfacing. They come in 3 sizes:
  • Bitty Bag (Bag bottom is about 5.5" square with 9" tall sides)
  • Midi Bag (Bag bottom is about 8" square with 12" tall sides)
  • Mondo Bag (Bag bottom is about 10" square with 17"-tall sides)

Want to Be A Bag Lady?

Veronica will be teaching another Quiltsmart class at Cactus Quilts December 7, from 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Participants will have the choice of making a Midi or Mondo Bag using printed interfacing. These adorable bags with their perfectly-matched seams and easy construction are simple and quick using this technique.

The totes are perfect for shopping bag, toy bags for long trips, or make a great Christmas present! Use it as a carry-on bag when you fly to visit family this holiday season and fill it with your favorite magazines, books, treats and more! The uses are only limited by your imagination.

Scraps of Fun Turn into Beautiful Blocks

Special thanks to Lonestar Quilt Guild in Friendswood, TX, for having Veronica teach a Scrappy Charm class before yesterday’s meeting. It was so much fun!! This is Veronica's block ... can you find the flipped piece? Who would have thought such ugly fabrics could make such a beautiful block!! 

Check back later as Veronica creates a entire quilt with these ugly charm squares. She has been collecting charm squares for years and is finally ready to put them to good use! There was even a contest for "Ugliest Fabric" .. and Veronica wasn't even the winner! 

Many of the class participants liked fabric that other attendees thought was ugly. Isn't it funny how one quilter's "icky" is another quilter's "awww!"!?! 

If you are in the Friendswood Area and want to learn more about the Lonestar Quilt Guild, contact Susan at to learn about upcoming meetings and classes.

Creating a Fan-tastic Project with Quilting Treasures & Quiltsmart

Things are in full swing here as we countdown to the holidays and the end of 2013. Around here we are working on projects as feverishly as ever.

Veronica just finished Quiltsmart's Grandma's Fan using Quilting Treasures fabric and could not be more excited!

"Quilting Treasures hits a homerun with these fan-tastic fabrics," Veronica said as she worked on the project. "The fans are fanning themselves and drooling over this fabric collection."

Quilting Treasures has always had amazing fabrics, but the Bear Thread Designs team really fell in love with the Abigail Collection by BJ Lantz. This collection is created to "evoke the aura of English country homes interpreted in a contemporary way!" The 7 fabrics have color variations and styles to create 14 fabric options - enough to mix and match for the perfect project.

The Grandma's Fan quilt itself took Veronica a mere 5 hours to complete because it was made using Quiltsmart's fusible interfacing. This simplified technique provides quilters the tools and tricks needed to make traditionally difficult patterns easier. After all, quilting smarter, not harder is their motto!

Grandmother's Fan and other Quiltsmart projects will soon be on the Bear Thread Designs website. Stay tuned and we'll let you know when these fun projects will be available! We will also be posting more Quiltsmart projects and the Quilting Treasures fabric collection Veronica used to make each one. Have your pen and paper ready, you'll want to add these to your letter to Santa!

Bear Thread Designs Introduces ... Sew Fresh!

Bear Thread Designs has been working on something new ...

SEW FRESH Odor Eliminator formula eliminates odors without a scent or fragrance. This non-toxic, water based formula eliminates odors by using all-natural ingredients. When directly applied onto an odor problem, Sew Fresh formula eliminates the odor and the results are permanent. SEW FRESH removes odors caused by pets, urine, vomit, smoke, mildew or mold, paint fumes and more.

To use as an odor remover, simply spray directly onto odor source, brushing formula into fabric by hand.  It can also be used as a laundry aide. Add  approximately 6 oz. to washer loads. Eliminate airborne odors by spraying formula towards the ceiling. SEW FRESH may be used throughout the home to eliminate odors. 

SEW FRESH is in a 16 oz. spray bottle. It is $10.99 plus shipping. SEW FRESH will be available October 25 just in time for Houston International Quilt Market (Booth 1571) & International Quilt Festival (Booth 1802/1804)! To pre-order, send email to with quantity desired.

The Making of A Star ... A Lonestar

Veronica and Michelle have been busy the past week making samples and such as they prepare for the International Quilt Festival. So many projects on the (ironing) board, I don't know how they keep it straight.

One project Veronica worked on was a 58-inch Lonestar using the fusible interfacing by Quiltsmart and fabric by Quilting Treasures. The fabric series, aptly names "Temptations" is a series of brightly colored fabrics that make the Lonestar "pop".

We'll be sure to post a photo of the completed quilt top. I'm off to help with more samples (and by "helping" I mean play in the fabrics!)

Learning to Quilt Smart with Quiltsmart

Have you ever wanted to do a quilt, but the pattern seemed a bit hard and you were hesitant to try it? Maybe you were willing to try it but the time required stopped you from starting?

Veronica has faced patterns like this and knows what a challenge it can be. Ten years ago she met Mattie from Quiltsmart and that led to the journey of making difficult patterns easy using Mattie's technique of fusible interfacing. Now Veronica provides lectures to quilt guilds on the technique.

On October 18th, she will will be giving a lecture at the Quilt Guild of Greater Houston at 10 a.m.

Veronica will be demonstrating the Quiltsmart method of using interfacing to create more than 15 quilt patterns. She will also a variety of patterns available for sale.

Visitors are welcome to attend the lecture. The meeting is held at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, located at 11612 Memorial Dr  Houston, TX 77024. To learn more about the Quilt Guild of Greater Houston visit their website. We hope to see you there!

These are two quilt top projects Veronica did over the weekend using Quiltsmart fusible interfacing. The Double Wedding on the left was made on Saturday, while she competed the Pumpkin Seed quilt top on the right on Sunday.

We're Changing with the Seasons!

I am so excited! Yesterday we launched our new website look and I must say, it looks more cozy than a bear during hibernation! Well, that's not to say that it'll put you to sleep, just that it looks adorable (like me!) 

While the new look has been introduced, we still have some work to do, so please be patient. Some of the new website features include:

  • Calendar of Events: Now you can see where we'll be and if you are in the area, you can stop by to visit!
  • Demonstration Videos: While we are working on creating a demo video for each of the Bear Thread Designs products, we do have a page where you'll be able to find them quickly. When we get them finished and on the page we will let you know! (I might be on TV ...err, an Internet video at least!)
  • Workshops & Lectures: You'll be able to see a list of the workshops and lectures that Veronica provides and find information on scheduling events with her. We'll let you know when there are new lectures or limited-time programs, so you can book them!
  • Jaggie's Blog: Now there will be a link to my blog from the website so you can keep up with what we have going on everywhere! You can find a link to the website at the top of this blog and now the website links here! 

We still need to update the online store. We'll be adding new patterns and product information to make it easier and quicker for you to navigate the site and find what you are looking for easier. We'll keep you posted on the changes! Let us know what you'd like to see on the website, blog, Facebook and even Pinterest!

Well, back to work for me ... I wonder if it's lunch time yet?

What Inspires You?

Jaggie here! Just hanging out in the Creative Room today. How is everyone enjoying October? Or at least the first few hours of it! Its hard to believe that it is October 1 already. 

We have a lot of projects going on at any given time and sometimes I can admittedly get overwhelming when we see the WIPs (Works in Progress) pile. Sometimes Veronica and Michelle have the luxury of putting down one project and starting on another when they start to feel burned out, but sometimes deadlines are tight and they push on. What do you do when you get burned out on a project?

Veronica is really good at pushing through, she's a bit of the marathon runner when it comes to the quilt projects. She can work on a big project for days as a time, just working away on something until its done. Michelle is more of a sprinter. She likes to do as much as she can as fast as she can and then move on to the next project. Shows are a good example of this.

Michelle can often complete (to a degree) 2 or 3 quilt blocks/tops on a show day just by demonstrating the Applique Pressing Sheet to booth vendors and event attendees. However, when we get back home or to the office, Veronica usually takes them and completes the bigger quilts, putting multiple blocks together on patterns such as McKenna Ryan or Bigfork Bay Cotton Company.

Veronica is often content to take projects home and finish them. Michelle prefers to do other projects at home, like finding or creating projects for us to show you here on the blog and come back fresh, ready to work on quilts the next day.

Both Veronica and Michelle have their strengths in themes of fusible applique patterns as well. Veronica is really talented when it comes to animals, picking out fabrics and seeing an animal "come to life" even at the start of a quilt. Michelle's eye for color and contrast from her years as a photographer are an asset when it comes to floral and nature scenes. 

So what inspires you to continue working when you reach a wall on a project? Do you alternate or push through until the end. What are your strengths when it comes to your quilting and how do you use them to your advantage?

Until our next adventure,

Cruise Into Fun & Adventure

Well, one thing that will never be said about Veronica is that she doesn't love adventure! She loves traveling almost as much as she likes quilting, and one of her favorite ways to combine adventure, quilting and traveling is quilting cruises.

I'd posted earlier this month about the Sew Fun Cruise she does each year with Round Bobbin, but we've had some quilters who were sad that they couldn't participate for various reasons. Don't fret, you'll have another chance to cruise with Veronica.

She is teaching on the Cactus Quilts' sponsored Quilting Cruise February 9-16, 2014, roundtrip from Galveston, Texas. The ports of call are Key West, Florida; Nassau, Bahamas and Freeport Bahamas with three fun days at sea on Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Magic.

There are a variety of classes that will taught while at sea, and them participants are encouraged to explore while in port.

For more information or to register for the cruise, visit Cactus Quilts website or complete this form.

We hope you have the chance to join us on either cruise!

"Fall" in Love with Crafts Again

Its officially "Fall" and even the Texas heat is allowing cooler temperatures to greet us in the morning. That's a good sign for us because it is the start of our busiest time of the year and cooler weather will certainly help. 

As the seasons change, so do our quilting projects ... or at least the theme. I took a peek at Michelle's personal craft blog a few days ago and saw that she was already knee deep in Autumn-themed quilting. From Halloween to Thanksgiving and even a little Christmas fun.

This quick and easy pumpkin is one of a few Fall-inspired patterns that Bear Thread Designs carries. Veronica likes to crochet in the winter as well as quilt - she says it helps keep her warm. In fact the whole team gets a little "craftier" as the holidays approach. What are some of your favorite fall crafts? Are there activities that you prefer to do when the weather gets cooler?

It seems like we are not to only ones getting into the holiday spirit. My friend Popcorn and his team at Quilting Treasures are welcoming the season with a collage of color. I really like the Elf on the Shelf Collection, though Michelle informs me that she and is already dreaming of projects for the Harvest Fare Collection.  

Veronica is working on a two new quilts using Quilting Treasures fabrics and is hoping to have them completed by International Quilt Festival, if not sooner. I'm not allowed to look at them because I can't keep secrets, but come back and visit soon and maybe I'll have a sneak peek.  

Well, I'm off to find some adventure. Maybe I'll run off to the Creative Room and pick out some fabric while no one is looking so someone can make me a new quilt.

Sew Many Samples!!

Whew! What a long week it has been already - and its only Wednesday! Veronica is already on the road headed to the Round Bobbin Quilting, Sewing and Fiber Arts Expo in St. Charles, MO this weekend. 

The past few days have been really busy for Veronica and Michelle as they feverishly worked on putting more samples together for upcoming shows and expos. Here is a look at some of the projects they did this week.

I really like the bear, but then again, I might be a little biased! They had quite the stack to start with. Many of these projects were done at shows as we demonstrated fusible applique using the Applique Pressing Sheet. So eventually, we have to stop and start putting them on the background fabric, which is a little hard to do in a hotel room! 

This week, I stayed at the office to help Michelle. We are redoing the entire website! I am so excited! We have some great things coming in the future and we decided it was time to update the website. We'll let you know when the new look is up and running.

I guess I should go help with that now. They love my creative genius!

Happy Hump Day!!
