The July patterns are ready, and this time I concentrated on Pantograph patterns.  I've designed quite a few for specific customer quilts, and they aren't on the website yet, they are only available as club designs.  I just don't have time right now to load individual designs onto the site, but once work slows down a bit that will happen.  At the moment the club designs are just a really easy way for me to get designs out there quickly.

The pantos are a good mix of easy and complex;

some have blocks and borders with corners.
The sets of patterns have been very popular, so I included the Iris set here, which quilts up beautifully.

And borders that don't need separate corners are always welcome, so I've provided 2 here, Hawthorn and Rowan.

And then there are a couple of block patterns to add to the library; the Dahlia pattern can be stitched out at a large size, as it's rather complex.  If you have a large centre square on point it will fill that nicely.

The grid patterns are useful if you want to fill a rectangle easily, things like small wallhangings and placemats etc.  They stitch out in one continuous line, with no breaks or need to travel from one line of stitching to another.  Just choose one to give you the density of quilting that you want, then resize it to fit your rectangle.  It may not give a crosshatch with squares, but will distort into diamonds; this looks great anyway.  Or you can place the desired grid over the rectangle you want to quilt, and trim off the excess; you'll have starts and stops this way, but you can preserve the 90 degree crosshatch.

29 pattern files this month, excellent value.  You can join the club on my website here

or subscribe through Paypal for automatic billing each month.

And don't forget, the previous club sets are available for $50 each.
