The Grace Company and Sue Pelland Designs have teamed up to to make a new style of Grace True Grips. I have been using Grace True Grips for many years, I have never found a better product for keeping rulers from slipping when rotary cutting. Cutting curves can be tricky at first, and slipping is a major problem without the true grips. I use them on all my Leaves Galore and Hearts and More templates to keep the tools secure when I am cutting around the curves.

Two exciting things are happening with Hearts and More this week. First, Generation Q magazine is blogging about and having a contest to win my book and a small set of Hearts and More tools and a copy of my new book! They have asked readers to comment on what you would write on the hearts in this sweet little Conversation Hearts quilt! In the comments below, I will put a link to the Generation Q contest so you can go, write a sweet saying, and win a copy of my book and tools!
Sue, Donna, and Linda Gosselin, a SPD Certified Instructor, belong to Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild and we recently revealed our 2016 Challenges. The theme for challenge was "modern". To participate, we purchased a bag that contained two fat quarters and two crayons. We had to use both the fabrics in the bag but could add four additional fabrics as long as they matched the colors of the crayons. The fat quarters were a Kona white and a gray fabric with some circles and helped unify the finished pieces.
The new website is online today, my new book has arrived and we are heading to Paducah in the wee hours of the morning. With so much going on, there are bound to be a few snags. Please be patient this week as we get out all the book orders and break in our new shop.
