Happy Holidays to all! I am pleased to offer you a free pattern to be used with the Crafter’s Companion GEMINI & Build-A-Block-PLUS die cutting system. I always recommend adding quality tools to your sewing studio arsenal and the Build-A-Block-Plus die cutting system is a great tool to have at the ready, especially if you already own the GEMINI machine. The BAB Plus includes three useful shapes, totaling a 14 piece set of dies. You’ll get rectangles, half rectangle triangles, and isosceles triangles in sizes ranging from 1.5″ x 2.5″ all the way to 3.5″ x 6.5″, in order to make 4″, 6″, 8″ 9″ & 12″ blocks. It’s a great collection of dies! To learn more about the Gemini tap HERE, and to learn more about the Build-A-Block Plus tap HERE.
Inspired by the colors and spirit of the holidays, I created a collection to be used for everyday use or entertaining those special family members, friends, and guests that you may host throughout the season. The lovely people at Moda Fabrics have sponsored this project by providing the lush and absolutely gorgeous fabrics from William Morris & Co for the Victoria & Albert Museum. The collection is called Morris Holiday Metallics and you can check them out in greater detail HERE.
I’ve given you a pattern collection to make not only a beautiful 60″ long table runner, but four generous sized placemats, and a bonus project of coasters. Use your own taste in fabrics to create a completely different aesthetic and design for your home, and even try out some of the block instructions that come with the Build-A-Block-Plus pattern guide and make new blocks to place in my settings.

I’m thrilled to be a #brandpartner with Crafter’s Companion. The folks there have been lovely to work with. Thank you for this opportunity!
