Pinwheels done Fast, Fun, and Easy! Pick any of the projects from either of the two books and be set for a magical surprise. I used the Twisted "Sixster" Table Topper, 5" squares and the Lil' Twister Ruler for my sample which finished about 21" x 21". By changing the size of the squares and the Twister Ruler you can make your project larger (or smaller) using rulers by Primitive Gatherings.

Using simple triangles gives the illusion of diagonal rows. This is a great project to use with fat quarters and/or left over fabric from previous projects. The project can be made in multiple sizes: baby - 44"x56"; lap - 62"x74"; twin - 72"x92";,and queen - 92"x104". There are lots of half square triangles in this project and would be a good one to use the new Bloc-Loc Ruler(s) on.

This bright and modern quilt is easier than it looks - don't let the hexagons scare you! It uses 2-1/2" strips so a jellyroll makes it fast. Or cut your own strips from your favorite fabrics.

Every night feels like a slumber party when you are wearing a pair of pajama pants made from your favorite fabric. These are a great project for the beginner sewer and the seasoned veteran alike. Variations include long or Capri length, with or without pockets, elastic waist or a combo of elastic and tie waist, and/or adding embellishment to the leg. Just think how stylish you'll be at your next quilting retreat!

A whimsically designed table runner for the entire winter season; this one doesn't say 'Christmas only' but could be used into February very easily. It would also lend itself very easily to a fun wall hanging by doing just half of the project.

Make a great tote bag to match your Pajama Pants to carry all your supplies for an overnight party. The bag finishes at 15" high x 15" long x 7-1/2" wide and it is 'slouchy' and will hold lots of 'stuff'. You can do some top stitching and/or quilting on the outside if you desire or leave it plain. If you've never attempted a bag before this is a terrific project to begin with.

There are three different books with several different table runners in each book - you can choose the one you would like to make. These table runners would also make great small wall hangings by doing just one end of the table runner. The techniques are easy for a beginner to learn - easy pieced backgrounds (could also just use one fabric for the entire background) and simple fusible applique.

Cost: $ 40.00
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".

In this class we will use a single large-print fabric to create kaleidoscopes. Kaleidoscope blocks - each one unique - are produced by aligning the printed design on several layers of fabric and then cutting and sewing triangles together. Once all the blocks are made, the kaleidoscopes are used to "paint" a watercolor-like quilt. These quilts look complex but are actually easy, easy, easy - and fun to make besides.
