    Cluck Cluck Sew Patterns

    I recently got an email from a shop I used to frequent in MI and they had talked about several patterns by Cluck Cluck Sew. I went to the website and liked several of them and was wondering if anyone has made them and if they think beginners could do them. (I want some different patterns to teach beginners and to use for workshops.) Please let me know if you have any of them and what you think. Thanks!

    here is the website in case one is curious about what they are http://www.cluckclucksewpatterns.com/
    to me, some of the patterns look easy enough, but i've never used one, so am not familiar how easy the instructions are to follow.

    Thanks for posting the link. They look easy to me as well but I have no idea how well they are written and I sent an email asking questions but never got a response. I'm tired of teaching the basic beginner quilts and wanted something different and several of these looked cute.

    they look easy enought to me to ~but even if there not easy directions you will be able to guide them through it
    and that wuld be wonderful to teach beginners how to read some of these patterns
    I Love ALL kinds of CrAfTs

    Our LQS has offered some of these patterns for next level of beginners. (For those who know how to make 1/4" seams and use a rotary cutter.) I think it was Off Track that was done.

    I had to smile when I saw this thread. I also saw an email that was sent out recently from a MI QS. This morning I was going back through some of my emails and was attracted to the Off Track pattern. I really like that one because I can use up some of my stash strips and it is a more modern pattern. I also think it would be a fairly easy pattern that can be completed quickly, which would be a nice compliment to some of the more difficult quilts I am working on now.

    The picket fence quilt is really cute and would be great for a little girl. I'll have to try that one!

    A lot of their designs are cute and I love the pattern company name. You can't help but be intrigued by the name and smile. Hehe

    I just looked at the site, the patterns are quite nice. Being a new quilter myself, I would probably try quite a few of those. Most look quite easy (if time consuming). If the directions are difficult to follow, tell you students what my mentor told me. "One sentence at a time." Just read one sentence, not the whole step. Understand it, then move on. It really works.

    I just think they are a nice change of pace from a lot of the usual suspects that beginners normally quilt and are a bit more modern, and that seems to be what beginners are looking to make more of these days. Not only that, but beginners seem to really like pre cuts even though I will still make them learn to use their rotary cutters and rulers! Hehee

    I guess I'm blessed by not needing written instructions for simple patterns. Just do them. I can copy a lot of knitting patterns by just looking too. Now crochet? I have to have pics and very good written instructions.

    I, myself, don't always need directions, but I want beginners to have them so they get used to reading patterns and have something to use as a reference point....if they learn something new, they are more apt to remember which project they were working on when they learned it and can go back to the directions.

    ​I liked the picket fence pattern too but when I saw Cluck Cluck patterns I just knew all the patterns would be about chickens. LOL

    I found their site when wandering through blog land. As a beginner, I thought their instructions were well laid out and easy to understand.

    Jen - My mom has taught me to use my rotary cutter and rulers. When in JoAnn's recently I noticed a bunch of pre-cuts and asked her if those were for people too lazy to cut their own.

    I agree that the patterns are cute, but don't seem different than what I have seen in magazines or books. Is it just me? I wonder why pdf patterns are the same price as hard copy?

    I still consider myself a beginner quilter and I'd try any one of these. They're very pretty and don't look to be too complicated with the exception of patterns that require applique. Just can't get the hang of doing that.

    Too funny! So many people don't know how to square up fabric with their rulers and they use the squares on the cutting mat to measure! Ugh! Lol

    I love Cluck Cluck Sew patterns. They are clear and easy to follow. My latest is Sugar Dish and it is super cute. You would be hard pressed to find patterns that are as terrific as these.

    Check out the tutorials at the site - if the patterns are as well done they would be very good.

    I've been admiring the Basket Case pattern... I love their pattern styles. I am a total non-traditional quilter!
