Helpful tips get you started. You learn that a jelly roll with 40 strips will make a 48" x 60" quilt if every strip is used, but you don’t need to include every strip in a quilt. Some can be set aside for other projects. You can expand the yardage in a design; cut the strips into other shapes; and use leftover strips in the binding and backing. Share strips. Have a New Orleans potluck. Jazz it up and have fun.

With a name like that, who can resist??? This book includes nine quilts and two smaller projects that are the perfect choices for a series of classes….
These projects are absolutely amazing – but it is not just another project book. Each project includes a mini lesson on a new technique. Why not start a series of classes. Choose four techniques incorporated into four projects.
Have students come once a month for two to three hours. They will be able to finish a quilt each quarter – that’s four quilts a year! Let your customers make a monthly “appointment” to do something they love! An added bonus? They will be able to finish the entire quilt in class! If you provide the machines – all the better!
Schedule the classes so they can stop on their way home from work. Their families will think they stopped at the grocery store – not some well deserved R & R with friends!
