* All the designs are eclectic, fun, fast, easy-to-make, and my own--but with loads of inspiration for customizing, personalizing, and making them YOUR OWN.
* So many how-to photos, you probably can follow along without reading.
* Download the full instructions immediately and you're ready to get started, as most of the materials you'll probably have on hand.
ETSY & CRAFTSY PATTERNS ARE JUST LIKE MY BOOKS...
* Yummy visuals give you a clear sense of the creative opportunities.

Hey there--Didja notice that a lot of programs are called "Quilting Goes Wild & Crazy"?
That has a lot to do with showcasing the projects and ideas in my latest book, Quilt Blocks Go Wild!
I'm fine with bragging, friends...
...'cuz just like my other books, QBGW! showcases a wide range of designs from some of the best talents in the quilt world. Easy how-tos, too: just like getting your choice of crazy fun workshops to take. For example, check out the "Drunkards Off the Path" by Malka Dubrawsky on the cover. LOTS more inspiration inside...designs by Karla Alexander, Pamela Dinndorf, Tonya Ricucci, Elizabeth Rosenberg, and yours truly (me!). So go wild: take a classic quilt block and make it your own, for quilts and wall hangings, table runners and tote bags, potholders and pillows.
