Old-fashioned artistry joins Pepper Cory's no-nonsense approach to making beautiful things out of the fabrics you have on hand. As you discover how to make creative choices with your stash, you'll learn Puss in the Corner, Trip Around the World and variations on Log Cabin and string quilts. Pepper lives the "Waste Not, Want Not" approach, sewing on a vintage machine, paper piecing with old phone books and finding new uses for paper plates, masking tape, drinking straws, flannel sheets and her clothes dryer. You'll embellish quilts with stenciling and add a hand-appliqued, mitered border. As a bonus, you'll learn how to sharpen your rotary cutter blades instead of throwing them away! Award-winning teacher Pepper Cory makes it all fun. Learn new twists on traditional quilting in this wonderful class.

"I enjoyed taking this class from Pepper Cory and have been amazed at the different patterns I've been able to create, using her easy technique. I have had so much fun using this quilting method, and have made several little lap quilts for people in need of a little quilt! This is also a great little project to start teaching children how to quilt.Thank you Pepper, for a fun class!"
