Convex Illusions is a very easy quilt pattern using strip piecing and simple construction techniques. The combination of shapes and shades creates the dramatic 3D optical illusion. .

I keep one of these handy tool holders beside my sewing machine at home, and have carried one to classes and retreats. It holds all your essential tools in easy reach. And, of course, these make great holders at your desk to corral your pens, pencils, scissors, letter opener, etc. The fabric for the outer pocket can be matched to someone’s interests; my Harley riding friend is getting one with Harley Davidson motorcycles on it, my friend with a VW bug is getting the bug fabric, and my son is getting one with tools. How about cat or dog fabric for the pet lovers in your life?

While this design may look difficult, it is very easy and is a great project to use a Layer Cake packet (10" squares). The quilt is designed to finish at 77" x 90-1/2" (finished block size is 7" x 8-1/2") but I believe it can be made to almost any size very easily.

Perfect your Flying Geese technique with this great project. The pattern is for a throw (64” x 68”) but I made mine smaller; you can enlarge or condense the design to fit your needs. The pattern describes using the ‘no waste’ method of creating flying geese and I will discuss several other methods of achieving great flying geese. A terrific way to use your ‘stash’ or have an excuse to try out the latest fabric line.

The kid’s class will meet every other week for 2 hours. This will be an on going class that new students can join. Some projects will require bought patterns and others will be free patterns. Some projects will be completed in a single class and others will take multiple classes to complete. Some parts of the projects can be completed at home if desired. We will start with a pillow case, move on to a small zippered bag, a market bag, then pajama bottoms. These will all be projects I determine the pattern for.

These 'catch-all' bags are great for the beach, overnight trips, or toting you fabric stash to class or retreat. The Mondo bag is 'huge' while the Midi Bag is approximately half the size. This is a great place to use Charm Packs, the 2-1/2" square Candies, or your scraps. Both bags are made using 2-1/2" squares and a pre-printed fusible interfacing (included in the pattern) to make stitching all the seams EASY!! (I promise). So fun and easy you won't want to make just one!

Make a delightful Wall Hanging, Table Runner, or Small Quilt with a collection of paper pieced outhouses. Have fun with the colors and fabrics – go wild or classic.

Even if you’ve never stitched a zipper before, you’ll have a hoot making this bag! Whoooo will you make it for and what will you tuck inside? These could be a hoot to give to your special young friends OR your ‘young at heart’ friends. A great project to use scraps – you’ll have so much fun you’ll want to make more than one.

Easily master sharp points, smooth curves, and precise piecing with my favorite technique! This will be a technique class on learning how to do paper piecing.

A great table runner in two sizes (although it can easily be made larger if you wish). This is a terrific project to use a 2-1/2” Jelly Roll or strips from your left-overs from previous projects. Also, you can use the excess strips from this project to create the border for the Slice Table Runner shown in the same book – two almost for the price of one. There are two sizes to choose from: 18” x 35-1/2” and 24” x 48”.

This dedicated group of quilters welcomes anyone wishing to make a quilt for our wounded troops. Help is appreciated in all areas: making blocks, sewing blocks into tops, binding, and more. Fabric and patterns can be provided.
