Hoop and Quilt* 60

*U. S. Patent Pending

See the July/Aug 05 issue of
Designs in Machine Embroidery
 to see this Hoop and Quilt project

This quilt layout is only available
in this magazine issue.

45 inches across

The popular Hoop and Quilt 60 book is now in its second printing.
We have had this book professionally formatted and printed.

Hoop and Quilt* is a new concept in quilting whereby you sew completed quilt ‘pieces’. These pieces contain batting, are quilted in the hoop, and edge finished in the hoop. Once all pieces are sewn and cut out, arrange them into any of a variety of tessellated patterns, then stitch them together.

Depending on your fabric choices, these quilts can be reversible, the same on both sides, different on each side, or use a plain fabric backing  for a traditional plain quilt back .

There are NO thread stops, NO thread changes, NO cutting fabric while in the hoop, and NO stabilizer used in the hoop. Cutting out the pieces is as simple as cutting paper along a perforation.

Because these designs sew quickly, with relatively little labor involved, this method is perfect for larger quilted projects.  

This set of designs contain 60 degree diamonds and its segments as well as borders in 3 widths and 3 lengths.

Included with the collection is a comprehensive softcover book in full color with illustrated instructions and many layout illustrations using this versatile geometric shape, including Tumbling Blocks, Pinwheels, 6 Point Stars, and Floral-Like arangements.

Included in the book are several blank layouts in greyscale and black/white as well as full page grids, ready to be printed so you can design your own  layouts using the colors of your choice.

Projects can range from small simple layouts like Placemats and Tablerunners, to Wall Quilts,
to more complex layouts like Jackets and Vests, and Full Size Quilts.

So get out your color markers, have fun creating with color, and get started on your ‘Hoop and Quilt’!

For even more inspiration check out the works of Vasarely. He has created some exceptional designs using 60 degree diamonds. Go to Click on ‘Images’. Type in the name ‘Vasarely’. Click ‘Google Search’. Some 30 pages will come up with his artwork. Not all of them are made with 60 degree diamonds but there are quite a few that would make beautiful wall or bed size quilts.
