Learn to make curvy Log Cabin blocks the traditional cut-to-size way or with the Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool (my favorite method) while stitching straight seams. The blocks can be combined in many different ways to create circles and waves; you can pick your favorite quilt from the book to make. I chose to make the Dotsy Bed Runner using Kaffe fabrics and a solid white background very similar to the one in the book. This technique lends itself to using scraps from your stash or a coordinated look with a bundle of 2-1/2" wide strips.

A terrific, sloughy bag that would be a great project to use fat quarters you've collected or use the excuse to shop for new ones. There is one zippered pocket in the lining - don't worry, inserting the zipper is really easy! There is a simple loop and button closure for the top of the bag. Bag finishes at 11-1/2" x 16" x 4-1/2", excluding the handle. The handle can be adjusted to suit your needs.

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. If you've tried it before and weren't sure you really 'got' it this is perfect for you. We'll also be stitching curves so you'll actually practice two different techniques with this class.

Learn several applique techniques in one day, from freezer paper to needle turn. And the best part is you only need to bring scissors as all supplies will be provided in the kit purchased on the day of the class.

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.

Cost: $ 45.00
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.

Cost: $ 45.00
Gentle curves are cut without a ruler or template then sewn together to create the main part of your project. This may sound scary but you will find it very freeing and surprisingly easy. Small bits of contrasting color(s) are scattered here and there to create interest in the design (I used all black for mine but you could use several different colors if you wish). I used very narrow strips of the fabrics to get the final look that I wanted but the strips could be made wider also (would go together faster!). I think this could make great placemats as well as a table runner; also a great wall hanging.

Cost: $ 45.00
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.

Cost: $ 45.00

Create hot pads for bowls used in your microwave, the hot pad surrounds the bowl and has a 'lip' on it that you can grasp to move the bowl from the microwave to the table. You can also make Splatter Guards to use for reheating items to protect your microwave from splatters. These would make a great gift for your self and your family or the new bride and groom.

This book is truly an inspiration – so many quilts I wish to make from it. You get to choose the project that best suits your needs; with a few exceptions the techniques are the same for all the quilts. I’ve made at least four of these and had fun with each of them.

Cost: $ 45.00

The squares in each block form a simple grid like the old-fashioned children’s game. The center square in the block is larger because it’s everyone’s favorite. Tic-Tac-Mo was inspired by a tattered old quilt in a Missouri antique shop, and the Mo stands for Missouri.
