Can't make one of these gigs? No worries! You'll find loads of inspiration in the pages of my books--specially priced, personally autographed...books such as: 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.
