Traditional Blocks Made Simple

Over years of quilting, Anita has figured out how to let her tools do most of the persnickety work of precise measurement. Snip snip snip! She'll show you how to customize your own rulers, use paper patterns for cutting and sewing, and deploy her stack-and-stitch method of block creation. "Why didn't I think of that?" you'll wonder as you breeze through Anita's arrowhead, pineapple, square-on-point and "unbiased" blocks. Anita will also go over fabric preparation and how she chooses her fabrics and arranges the blocks for her stunning quilts. Creating gorgeous quilts isn't as complicated as you think. Sign up for Traditional Blocks Made Simple today! Bonus: Anita's e-book, "Rotary Cutting Revolution" (a $14.99 value) is included free!

What's New

The March/April '14 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine (#156) includes my tessellated "T-Design" block. By now you probably expect me to make this block and quilt in an expected manner. Some images are here on my blog: http://makeitsimpler.blogspot.com/2014/02/what-t-brainteaser.html

To tell you the truth, I haven't counted the number of times my work has been included in an issue of Quiltmaker?s 100 Blocks. I do know that Vol. 9 is coming up and that my Tribal Crossings block will be in it. On Friday, May 2nd I'll participate online in the 100 Blocks blog tour
