Jaftex 85th Birthday Blog Hop – My Day

Welcome to all the Jaftex Blog Hoppers!

D95D008B-9E08-46D6-90F6-138A56A49F8B

 

Today is my day on the blog hop.  If we haven’t met before I’m Heather Peterson and I’m the designer behind Anka’s Treasures.  I been in the business of publishing books and patterns for the last 19 years.  I also design fabrics for Henry Glass, one of the companies under the Jaftex Corp.  Jaftex Corp. was founded in the 1930’s when Jacob A. Fortunoff started selling fabric on the streets of New York.  At that time, the mainstay of the business was women’s sleepwear and lingerie.  In the 80’s, Jacob’s grandson, Robert, dramatically changed the business of the company.  The business focus was transferred to the over the counter quilt industry when Robert purchased companies like A.E. Nathan, Henry Glass, Stylemaker, Chanteclaire, Fabric Editions/Studioe and The Blank Quilting Corp.  Robert is now joined by his two sons, Scott and Greg.  Scott currently is the President of Studioe Fabrics, The Blank Quilting Corp. & A.E. Nathan Co., Inc.  Greg just joined the business in late 2014 and has successfully spearheaded the company’s foray in to precut fabrics among other contributions.

As part of the Jaftex Blog Hop, 30 different designers will be sharing a project with you, made with fabric from one of the Jaftex Companies.  The runner below is my project.

The runner was made using the Folio Basics Collection by Henry Glass.  The grey background is one of the beautiful Peppered Cottons from Studio E.

The pattern is called Strip Stars and can be found in my Angles with Ease 2 book.

This runner uses one of my favorite techniques – taking a simple strip unit and turning it into something that looks complicated.   The combination of the strip unit and my ruler, the Triangler, makes this block much easier (and quicker) than it looks!

I used some of my leftovers for the backing and binding.

If you would like to give this technique a try, you are going to need some supplies to get started.

If you would like to win the Fat Quarter pack of this collection pictured above, along with my book and ruler, please leave a comment to win!  The fabric pack is way more than you need for this runner, so you will also have enough leftover for a second project from the book.

Jaftex is also giving away a sewing machine and many other great prizes.  After you leave a comment here, head on over to link below for a chance to win those prizes as well.
