Classes upcoming in Kansas and Texas

Twisted Hexagons
Yes, I'll be teaching two more classes of this popular technique. It only looks hard. There are no y-seams and the blocks are large. The table runner uses 12" blocks.

The Table Topper uses 10" blocks (6 of them) and a large, interfaced center hexagon appliqued on last.

Then I have a class on FREE MOTION QUILTING, BASICS AND BEYOND:

 This fun wreath is a stencil . . .

Draw with a stencil; complete with free motion outside
 What a FAT CAT! Of course! That's his name. My own pattern that we trace the simple outline shape onto freezer paper, iron onto fabric, stitch around freezer paper, peel off freezer paper and then fill inside this very fat cat!

Fat Cat is a pattern I've had for a very long time

BUZZ SAW:

This is Dresden Plate blades on steroids! Easy and quick and dynamic.

And then CUPID'S ARROWS:
