Now In Stores | Around the Block by Skinny laMinx

Around the Block is a flower-filled walk around some of Heather Moore’s favourite block prints, made in her studio after a trip to India, where she learned about traditional Indian woodblock printing. We’ve been stitching up lots of inspiration for you, too!

Super Sewing Scissors Block by John Q Adams

Super Scissor Quilt by John Q Adams

John, aka Quilt Dad, man-quilter extraordinaire and all around great guy, was so kind to work with Cut Out & Keep for our last quilt market. Plus, it was quilted by the supremely talented Angela Walters. When we saw the sketch of his ideas we, of course, were ecstatic- the scissor motif was perfect for the range. We also thought it was a great block for just about any crafty person and envisioned crafty people hanging this up on a wall in their studios, or in a pillow for their favorite knitting chair. It’s simply crafty goodness!
