12. Susan Cleveland – Ringie Dingies Supply List
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner to Expert
Double points put a contemporary spin on this long-time favorite. They also eliminate the need for the traditional appliquéd circle in the center of each circle and allow rings to interlock! These Dresdens are built on a foundation so background fabrics don’t show through and, more importantly, Dresdens turn out perfectly flat. Learn Susan’s tips for speedily turning wedge points with the Prairie Pointer Tool. At home you may finish the quilt by quilting the background then ditch stitching Dresdens onto the quilted quilt! Design possibilities are endless!

13.  Karen Eckmeier – Large Logs Supply List
Start with the traditional Log Cabin block and feature a fun image in the center instead of the classic red square. Select a large print and some lights and darks to coordinate with it and you are on your way to building some very sassy blocks with topstitched curves and perky little triangles.  Five log blocks make a great table runner and four blocks are perfect for a table topper or bag. If you want to make a large quilt bring more fabric and continue making blocks.
