WAUCONDA WA  Right now I’m leading the Something To Say Workshop. In Session 2, I taught the classic jeans quilt technique, Stitch ’N Flip—with the addition of patterned letters in the strips. 

Take a look at some of amazing projects my online students have made!

YOCHI from Moshav Dekel in Israel commented:  I had a hard time cutting wearable jeans . . . an almost criminal act for my generation.

CYNDY in Seattle WA stated: This is for my dog, Rover. He’s on a road trip so I included my other dog, Finch. She’s unimpressed.
