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!
