Sew and Tell… Meet Kris


Meet Kris who is our newest Hamelite.  Kris has been working at Hamels Fabrics now for a few months.  You may not have actually seen her as she tends to be in the back office processing customer orders, answering the phones, or shipping your orders to your home for your brand new projects.  Kris is an avid quilter as you can see from her picture above.  But of course she would be working at Hamels.

Making sure that blocks are truly square is one of the best ways to make sure a quilt top will go together easily and turn out smooth and flat.  You can use one of the many different quilter’s square rulers now available in sizes from 6 inches all the way up to 15 and 16 1/2 inches square.  Trim larger blocks with a 6″ x 24″ ruler butted up against your largest square ruler.  Click Here to view a large selection of specialty rulers and square up rulers.
