5 Minute Blocks for Quilting

     View a YouTube, Amazing design possibilities for your next quilt, table runner or wall hanging using this speedy 5-Minute Geese block technique.

     The International Quilt Market in Kansas is set to begin this week. For the first time in many years I am not able to attend. It is always a bright spot in my year to see old friends and have the opportunity to be one of the first to view all of the beautiful new fabrics, tools, techniques and original quilts presented in this fabulous venue. If you are a quilt shop, or creative media shop of any medium I advise you to try and attend at least one such show... for the color, the craftsmanship and the inspiration alone.

'Tree of Life' quilt - only 'looks like' curved seams

     Even though I will not be at the Quilt show I have have been busy with quilting on my mind. The 10-Minute Blocks book and video were so popular that I decided to work on a 5-Minute Geese Blocks book with this easy block construction technique (it is similar to half of a 10-Minute Block. Flying geese is a traditional favorite with quilters - they can be mixed, matched, turned or combined with alternate blocks for an endless variety of pattern and design.

'Zig Zag' table runner with all 'straight seams'

     '5-Minute Geese Blocks', due out soon, is my newest quilting book and is filled with tips, options and projects for these one-seam blocks. I  had a really good time exploring ways to put them together and  I hope it will inspire you to explore the possibilities of these magical blocks. Dazzle your friends and family with a gaggle of beautiful flying geese quilts, wall hangings and table runners.

     I am offering some exciting workshops in 2012 in some wonderful venues. Please check my new website for information on classes and take a peek at some of my art work in the gallery.
