Template stamps are rubber stamps that have both the cutting line and the piecing line. Single stamps are great for charm quilts. It saves tracing templates over and over. The sets can be used with the enclosed patterns, or use your imagination and make other blocks or settings from the same stamp set. Use preinked fabric ink pads for best results. Brown can be seen on the back of most fabrics. White is available for dark fabrics. Reinkers are available for both pads. You can usually get at least one quilt out of a preinked pad. Note: purchase preinked fabric ink pads separately
3″ Triangle Add On
This new side triangle stamp is used in conjunction with the “Sawtooth Star” set of stamps in the new “Bears and Berries” pattern. This stamp will save time when making the strippy version of the quilt. This stamp is used with the strippy version of the “Bears and Berries” pattern (pattern sold separately).
Apple Core 2″ x 3″
One of the most popular template stamps, this stamp features reference marks for ease in pinning. No more folding the fabric to find the centers! Yea! Pattern is included with the stamp.
Aunt Hattie’s Hexagons 2″ x 2 1/4″
This unique hexagon quilt was made with 40 – 10″ reproduction civil war squares. Set with black, the hexagons really pop! Or use the stamp to make your own version of grandmother’s flower garden. Pattern is included with the stamp.
Aunt Hattie’s Hexagon Connector Stamp
A new way to connect your traditional “Grandmother’s Flower Garden” quilt. Make all your flower garden and half blocks first then simply connect with this stamp! The stamp has a line to cut for the little triangles in the corners, so no need for 2 stamps. Use this stamp to make little baby blocks, too, that will connect with the hexagon stamp! (You need the “Aunt Hattie’s hexagon” stamp to make the “flowers”, so don’t forget to order it.)
This stamp set is so easy, it is bound to become a favorite. I set my bow ties in around a square which I will be hand quilting, but wouldn’t it be a cute place for a child’s name? or a sentiments to a friend? I love the way you can also use the stamp for border. Set the blocks on point with alternating blocks for a baby quilt. The little blocks are fabulous made into pin cushions, too.
This three-stamp set can be used two ways! Make the most accurate Lemoyne Star blocks you have ever made or make the larger 9 1/2″ Carpenter’s wheel block. (Pattern for the Carpenter’s Star is included.) The diamond piece from the Carpenter Star Set was used to make the center in the “Lone Star Blossoms” pattern. This set was also used for the new “Wild Mountain Vine” pattern.
So darn cute, who can resist making these blocks by the dozen? This 3 stamp set can be used in many ways, to make other blocks. These blocks will match up with the Mini Civil War Sampler blocks, but are NOT the same pieces as the sawtooth star set of stamps. This stamp set was also used for the new book, Sampler By Hand.
These little gems are a delight to put together. These 8 – pointed stars finish to 3″. Too darn cute! I finished my little strippy sample in no time and now I’m working on a Christmas version. This set combines beautifully with the “Add on Triangle” for the setting. (A template is included in the set if you wish to trace one.) The set comes with the strippy version pattern. I made my sample with Jo Morton fabrics, but wouldn’t they be adorable in thirties?
This is the same set of stamps I have had for sale in the past, but with a new cover pattern. So accurate, you will be able to hand or machine piece your block with no paper piecing.
Mini Hexagon 7/8″ x 1″
This little 1″ hexagon will make the cutest doll quilts and miniatures. This stamp is not recommended as your first stamp. The seam allowance is only 1/8″. My stitching group didn’t have problems testing it for me, but they are experienced hand piecers. The stamp includes the pattern for the 10″ x 12″ doll quilt.
My readers voted for this shape and here it is! Originally called “honeycomb” in the books I’ve read, this shape can be used in at least 4 different ways. (Three other variations are in the pattern.) The block featured is finished size 71/2″. I put 4 block sample together in a couple evenings. I did use the sawtooth star little D square and B triangle for the edges, but the stamp comes with templates for these shapes in the pattern.
April 2013 is the 14th anniversary of my most popular quilt, Railroad Crossing. It graced the cover of “American Patchwork and Quilting” in April 1999. (Seems like yesterday.) Several people have asked me to bring back a stamp set that I used to make the quilt, even though the magazine used foundation paper. This is the old sunburst set, so don’t buy it if you own it! I did use the Sawtooth Star Set pieces A, B, and C for the flying geese. (The pattern contains templates for these pieces if you don’t own them.) Make the large Railroad Crossing quilt (49″ x 64″) or the smaller version Whistle Stop (34″ x 34″) with the enclosed instructions. This stamp set contains 3 stamps.
Sawtooth Star Set
This set will be your favorite! It contains 5 stamps: 2 triangles, 2 squares, and the sashing strip rectangle. You will be able to make the sawtooth star plus lots of other 4 patch designs (finish to 3 3/4″) as well as 9 patch designs (finish to 5 3/4″). This set will also make the Civil War Mini Sampler, the Nine Patch Civil War Sampler, Bears and Berries and was also used in the new book, Sampler by Hand. (Patterns sold separately.)
Snowball Triangle Add On
Mariner’s Compass Center E Stamp
NEW! The Snowball Triangle adds onto the Mariner’s Compass center octagon (E piece). These make the most adorable 2 1/8″ snowball blocks. I used 25 of my charm squares, alternating lights and darks. It made a cute table mat that was inspired by the piece I saw in Jo Morton’s book, “Banner Day.” (see my blog post to view the original)
Spool Block 2 3/4″ block
So adorable, this block can be made up easily. The set consists of 2 stamps. A great portable project.
Based on the postage stamp that was issued in 1978, this cute four-stamp set will make you a “basket case”. So adorable, you will want to make more than one. Individual blocks make wonderful Christmas ornaments.
Looking for a stamp that will make a larger block, here it is! The star garden stamp will ADD onto Aunt Hattie’s Hexagon stamp that many of you have used and love. The stamp is my invention. There are 2 pieces on one stamp. You just cut off the points for the stars and use the whole diamond for the part around the star. (Instructions included, of course.) The blocks finish 8″ x 9″, so you can hand piece at least 3 or 4 of them in an evening. I did set the stars a little different than a traditional “star garden”, with a large hand pieced diamond, but you can set them a myriad of ways. Remember to order the hexagon stamp if you don’t have it in your collection for the center part of the “flower”. This stamp will also make the traditional “Baby Block” pattern.
Sunflower Set 4 3/4″ block
The four stamps included in this set will make the cutest little sunflower. This stamp has small pieces, so it is not recommended as your first project. But if you love little, this set is for you! (Pattern is included with the stamps.) This stamp set will ALSO make the Mountain Blossoms pattern and the corner pieces in the “Lone Star Blossoms” pattern. (Patterns sold separately.)
Thimble Stamp 1″ x 1 1/8″
Returning for a limited time, this little stamp will fit on 2″ squares of fabric. Make a charm quilt with your tiny scraps!
Tumbler Stamp 3″ x 2 3/4″
This updated version of my old stamp is available for a limited time only. The stamp will fit on 5″ charm squares and is PERFECT for a beginner. Easy to hand or machine piece, although you KNOW I hand pieced my new version! I used Jo Morton fabrics for my new sample.
