I'm so happy to tell you I'll be teaching FOUR classes at Road to California in January! Road2Ca is January 19-22, 2017. There are far more participants than class spaces available so if you're interested, you need to be ready to sign up when registration opens July 9
I'm most excited about this quilt! I developed this quit as a not-so-gentle reminder for all of us! But you can pick your own 6-letter word or phrase to express your own sentiment!
Be Kind is a fun quilt to express your own word or short phrase! Students can do the quilt up with "Be Kind" as shown or choose their own word or phrase to express something they would like to immortalize on their quilt. The quilt can be done in bright, rainbow colors as shown or in gradations of a single color or in two colors, such as red and white. The pattern includes two sizes (12" or 6") of all 26 letters of the alphabet so the quilter can choose to make a queen size quilt or a wall hanging. Jenifer gives lots of hands- on help with color choice, word choices, and piecing.

This is the most dizzying, electric I've ever designed! The class is a baby quilt, but I'd love to see a queen-size version! I don't think anyone would ever be able to get to sleep under this quilt!
This baby quilt is a fun, unique quilt that will stretch the confident beginner and delight the more experienced quilter. Each block has 4 identical paper-pieced sections that are pieced with a 3" nine-patch unit in the center. The block is joined with partial seams. The optical illusion is mesmerizing once all 6 blocks are joined together.

Exploding Nine Patch
This is one of my most popular classes! The blocks pop off the quilt in this fun, easy-to-piece optical illusion design! You can do it in brights on white as shown or in one color family on any background you like.

It is also challenging enough for more accomplished quilt makers. Jenifer offers tips, hints and alternate techniques while teaching you how to make this 84" quilt. Participants are guaranteed to learn something new and have fun stitching this stunning optical illusion quilt!

Exploding Four Patch
Not to be outdone by it's big sister, the exploding four patch is just as fun to make! Believe it or not, this is a Lemoyne Star block, but the choice of a 3-step gray gradation makes it look completely different!
