BIG Announcements!!! UPDATE: A Giveaway Winner!

I have lots of BIG news to share with you! So much is happening right now, all at once! As they say, “when it rains, it pours.” Fortunately, everything is so positive and so exciting that it’s all showers of blessings!  I’m absolutely thrilled to introduce:

My newest Craftsy class!

Title Card for Blog

I’m very excited about this new class…..I’ve been working on the curriculum and the projects for literally months and I think this may just be the best thing I’ve ever done! In this progressive, skill-building class, I will guide you step-by-step to construct units from simple to complex to create an unlimited number of different blocks based on my “Modular Quilting” concept.


You’ll not only be able to create a stunning modern sampler quilt, but there are several other fun, easy, fast projects all while building your arsenal of skills and precision piecing techniques. I designed this class so you can make the main quilt from 1 Jelly Roll plus 1 matching Layer Cake and background fabric but of course you can use fabrics from your stash!


To all of you who have taken my Craftsy classes previously or have taken a class with me through your guild or regional (or national!) quilt show, I’m offering a VERY special discount of 50% off the price of “Magical Blocks: Out of the Box” if you log on to Craftsy through my personal, very special link. Simply CLICK HERE and you will be directed to sign up for the class and receive your discount as my way of saying a sincere THANK YOU for being one of my students or having purchased any of my books or tools. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! But this 50% off link is only good for one week — so don’t delay and sign up today!


In this class, I’ve got lots of fantastic ideas to share with you and pretty projects for you to make, including this Variable Pinwheel Star!
