Hoop-N-Quilt 60

NOT Just for Quilters

48 Designs Total

A very versatile collection as you can see below

Jacket and Vest Arrangements Below


I have been asked many times over the years if I would bring back Hoop N Quilt 60. We sold out of the original books. Since then I have refined my Hoop N Quilt method, a method that I am much more satisfied.  To bring these back meant starting from scratch digitizing and testing all of the designs which I have done and are finally completed.

Shown here arrranged into Tumbling Blocks using 3 tonal fabrics in light, medium, and dark shades.

The New Hoop ‘N’ Quilt technique does NOT require fusible, batting, or cutting fabric in the hoop. There is no piecing in the hoop. It makes an “impossible” quilt possible. The finished quilts are not stiff or bulky in any way. Rather, they lay flat, feel soft, draping like a quilt made with more traditional techniques.  What’s more, they are wonderful to use as a bed covers, lap cover, or sofa comforter, as they drape about you like any quilt in which you would bundle up for warmth.

Although batting can be added in the hoop- that’s what I did with my HNQ 60 quilts

Of course, a sleeve can be added to the backside should you wish to hang your quilt on the wall for viewing. And still they can be made into smaller projects as well.

If you are not a quilter these designs can be assembled and appliqued onto finished products like tablecloths, placemats, and also onto garments like jackets, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and vests.

This set contains 60 degree diamonds and its segments as well as borders in 3 widths and lengths. Each of the single designs is the same size for all hoop sizes.

To help speed your sewing, I created files that have multiple repeats of each design so you don’t have to hoop for each single piece.  These designs are all one thread color designs.

The diamonds and all its segments come in (2) varieties. One is plain; the other has ‘faux’ quilting. Use whichever one you prefer. The plain one is great for showcasing your fabrics. The ones with ‘faux quilting’ looks lovely on solid and almost solid fabrics.

For a stained glass look simply sew the plain designs and use black thread.

For the informed quilter, the notion that creating a project using 60 degree shapes is challenging comes as no revelation.  However, my approach is both quick and simple.  If you have ever made or wanted to make your own 60 degree diamond layout I hope you will try my approach and let me know how it compares to more traditional techniques.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Fun with Samples

I made these with samples and left over diamonds from other projects.

We use these on our dining room table to set jugs of cold water or iced tea.

We also use them for hot containers like bowls of soup.

NOT Just for Quilters

Jacket and Vest Arrangements

Use a ready made jacket or make your own using your favorite jacket pattern.

Two Methods for making jackets and vests with HNQ designs

     *Piece the entire project with HNQ60 pieces

     *Make only the decorative stars, flowers, etc and applique them onto a jacket or any other project.

I especially like the way the hems of most of these have points.

Note that some of these arrangements the diamonds are vertical and some are horizontal.
