Here's another picture of my new toy. Yesterday I cut out over a thousand half-square triangles in no time at all.  No dog ears to clip off! They are perfect and ready to sew together. I have never been good at piecing a quilt, especially with small pieces, now I know it's because my cutting was not precise. I have much more confidence now. Just look at that blue star! Soon I will be offering this service to my quilting customers so keep watching!

New at Closson's Quilt House!

 I now have an Accuquilt Cutter in the shop. First there were scissors and cardboard, then along came the rotary cutter and mat, and now the Accuquilt. No more cutting! The Accuquilt does it all. It is absolutely the best way to cut fabric for your quilts. It's fast, accurate and easy. I can cut multiple layers in seconds with no cutting mistakes. Accurate cuts everytime, and as the Accuquilt ad says "Better Cuts Make Better Quilts". I cut out a king size quilt the other day in just a half hour! This is a wonderful tool. It saves time and fabric and for anyone suffering from arthritis or carpal- tunnel syndrome, this is the answer for you. More on this later............

Blog Debut

My name is Brenda and my business is quilting! It's also my passion. I've never blogged before but what better way to let everyone know what's going on at Closson's Quilt House. First a little back ground. I have been quilting for many years and have been a longarm quilter for six. I have a Gammill, her name is Ethel. She is named after my Grandmother that taught me to sew. Ethel and I have seen many beautiful quilts in the six years we have been together. You can go on the Quilt House site for more information on our services at http://www.clossonsquilthouse.com/.
