ALL-NEW PATTERNS BY POPULAR DESIGNERS FOR HOFFMAN BALI
SNAPS (5” squares), CRACKERS (10” squares), POPS (2-1/2” strips) & FAT QUARTERS
Several new patterns that sample Hoffman Bali Precuts have become available – perfect timing for creating new sample quilts and merchandising displays, and attracting new customer interest and sales. Each Snap, Cracker and Pop precuts pack offers 40 different fabrics. Each FQ pack has 16 unique fabrics.
A Quilter’s Dream has two ways to make Social Climber – use a Bali Cracker in Sandpiper (BC-294-Sandpiper) or a FQ bundle in Sandpiper (FQBC-294-Sandpiper). There is the same option for Half Baked: use a Bali Cracker in Sparrow (BC-543-Sparrow) or a FQ bundle in Sparrow (FQBC-543-Sparrow). There’s also Pebbles, a table-topper-size quilt made up with a Snap in Cockatiel (BS-297-Cockatiel). It can be expanded in size by using a Cracker (BC-297-Cockatiel). A third pattern, Time After Time, uses a Jingle Pops 2-1/2” strip pack of holiday screenprints.

Cindi McCracken is a member of Judy Niemeyer’s Quiltworx team who has stepped out on her own as a pattern designer. Her new Rave offers three layouts in one pattern. Each layout shows a different look, thanks to her clever color combinations. She used Bali Crackers (BC) in 235-Agate, 380-Mineral and 427-Gemstone for the three layouts. Each look requires one Cracker, plus 1½ yards of accent fabric and 1 yard border fabric (each selected from complementary Style 1895 Bali Watercolor hand-dyed fabrics contained in the Cracker).
