Posted in Crackers and Pops! at 6:51 pm by Cookie Martyn

Series 6 Bali Pops, Snaps and Crackers are here!   I made a 6 small quilts to showcase the colors in each one.  The design is on you tube from Jenny Doan.  She calls it Windowpane 9 patch.  I used a 1 and 1/2 in sashing.  It’s a disappearing 9 patch with sashing.  Use one package of “snaps” for each one.  The sashings are Splash-1895 Strawberry Daquiri; Tidepool-1895 Nightshade; Volcano-1895 Black; Pacific-1895 Liquorice; River Rock-1895 Charcoal and Seaholly-1895 Pine.

Snaps, Crackers and Pops!

Posted in Crackers and Pops! at 10:14 am by Cookie Martyn

   Hoffman has introduced pre-cut squares of their Bali batik fabrics.  Snaps are 5 inches and Crackers are 10 inches.  The fabrics in each set are in the same 40 fabrics that are in the new 5G Bali Pops.  The design possibilites are endless.  We will supply our very popular color identification charts with the squares as we do with Bali Pops.  Delivery is promised for September but I am hopeful that we will have them sometime in late August.  We will offer them bundled with the Bali Pops in each of the same colorways as well as individually and in collections of all 6 in each size.

Here are Geoff’s new photos of the 5G Bali Pops.  I think there is more contrast in these strip sets than we have had in the past.  The longer I work with these incredible fabrics, the more I realize the importance of contrast in our quilts.  I can’t wait to see the quilts made with these fabrics!  Here are Brown Sugar, Macaron, Parfait, Rum Raisin, Tiramisu and Wild Berry.
