An owl, a bicycle and a butterfly...

What do these three things have in common with a barn, flowers and an airplane?


They're all part of a super-cute new "printable" from Angela.

Print it out on cardstock or paper to make little notes for your kids, grandkids or friends.

Print it out on printable fabric sheets to make labels for quilts, to decorate little bags, or even to make a super-quick pincushion.

There are several brands and manufacturers for good "photo transfer" sheets but I particularly like the Inkjet Fabric Sheets from EQ Printables - the Electric Quilt Company.

After printing the sheet, I adhere it to Steam-A-Seam Lite 2 to the back.  While there are iron-on printable fabrics, I prefer the two steps.  (I know... crazy.)  I also like using a pinked, waved or scalloped rotary cutting blade to cut the notes/labels apart.  (But not all three at the same time.)  It's easily done and I like the way it looks.  Just so you know, not every specialty blade fits every rotary cutter so if you have any old rotary cutters, give them a try if the blade isn't working on your newfangled thing-a-ma-jig.  An old-style Olfa cutter is what I use.

And where can you find this cute printable?  Look up!  At the top of this page, right under the banner for The Cutting Table, look for Fun & Free.  Click that tab and this is what you'll find.


You've been there, right?  I won't spoil the surprise by spilling all the beans but I hope this will at least pique your curiosity.

Free PrintablesHoliday tags.  The Project Tracker - it was created by Lisa Calle of-for the Moda Bake Shop and it's awesome.  Actually, it's perfection.

Sewing Tips.  Everything you need to know about Moda's Pre-cutsWhat to do with a 5" charm square.

Free Patterns.  A picture is worth a thousand words.


Two pictures is... more.


Free Wallpaper.  I've used five of these on my desktop so far.  I like switching it around... in fact, I think we're going to need a few more soon.

Because you might be sending a few kinder off to school tomorrow, here is the link to the Printable Notes.

One last thing to mention - you know that we're big supporters of the Quilt Alliance - a non-profit organization dedicated to documenting, preserving and sharing out quilting history and traditions.  Their annual event is Quilter's Take Manhattan is the end of this month - September 23 - 25, 2016.  To celebrate this year's event, we're participating in a QTM Blog Hop.
