This fast-paced, fun-filled, workshop is the perfect answer to turn all those enticing 2 1/2" strips, 10" squares and charm packs into a fabulous quilt.

She'll teach you dozens of tips and tricks for using specialty rulers and traditional methods to their best advantage with no math, no wasted fabric, and best of all, no stress!
