Teufel’s quilting parties involve cutting a photo into squares, then each person gets one square of the photo, enlarges it and copies it onto fabric. Depending on the skill level of the participants, blocks can be completed by sewing or simply by painting, or drawing with fabric markers. The finished blocks are assembled to get a fun and funky quilt!

This book shows how many different ways you can dice a worm (a strip of fabric) to create fast and fun quilts. There are a few strip-pieced projects, but there are many more that use triangles and trapezoids for some fantastic, traditional quilts. Some quilts require setting pieces, such as sashing and borders, or a control background fabric, but aside from that, all pieces are cut from a collection of 2 1/2" wide strips.
It is a wonderful base for classes, teaching a variety of skills and techniques, including use of the Omnigrid 96 & 98 triangles. The triangle tools replace the need for templates.
You will be amazed at how much fabric this "stash cleaner" book will generate. While using what is on hand, quilters will want to add new fabrics to the old to liven up the quilt. Think about the amount of fabric required for backgrounds, sashing, borders, and backings!
And then, of course, there will be the need for batting, thread, triangle tools, new rotary cutter blades, and machine quilting services.
On another note, Applique Club is cancelled for the rest of May, due to the holiday, AND the shop will not be open on Memorial Day.
