Update 12/17/21: Due to the unexpected upcoming closure of CourseCraft, I will be moving my class to Thinkific. Don't worry! I'm taking my students with me too. Moving and setting up my class with Thinkific will take a little bit of time, so I'm postponing the start of class until January 20, 2022. The move should be pretty seamless and I will stay in touch with you along the way. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions.
Enrollment continues to be open and secure.
Love Machine Class will launch on January 20, 2022 in the new Thinkific online classroom. New lessons will be made available weekly.
Join before January 6th at the Early Bird price of $50. (Regular price is $65)
Class starts January 20, 2022.
Take a look at what's included in the class:
(Note: The pattern is not included. If you don't own it, you can add it on when you enroll. If you already own it, you won't be charged for a second pattern. Win-win!)
When you sign-up, there's an option to add-on a pattern and/or a V & Co. Ombre Fabric Kit to your enrollment (if you don't already have them).
Visit the Love Machine class information page to learn more about what's included in the class and to sign-up!

It's time for December's Quilt Block Mania! This month's theme is Toys - so fun! I had quite a few ideas, but this cute little wagon won me over. It builds on the skills in my Pumpkin Quilt Block pattern, so I'm sure you'll be all set to make one of your own. If you haven't made the Pumpkin Quilt Block yet, it's available in my shop as a downloadable pattern.
The Toy Wagon Quilt Block is more of an intermediate block, simply because there are smaller pieces. The pattern will definitely give more experienced quilters the chance to show off their piecing skills. The block measures 12.5"x12.5", unfinished. Each of the blocks in the series are the same size, so you can combine blocks to put together your own toy-themed quilt or pick and choose your favorites. (scroll down for the list of designers and links to their patterns)
To make this block, I used a variety of Ombre fabrics by V & Co. from Moda: Original Ombre, Ombre Fairy Dust, and Ombre Wovens. You can certainly use any fabrics that you have, but if you want to make your own with V & Co. Ombre fabrics, I put together a little Toy Wagon Fabric Bundle that you can buy separately. The kit includes enough fabric to make 4 complete blocks.
I also put together a fabric bundle inspired by December's Quilt Block Mania color scheme. The colors are so fun and vibrant. Use it to make your own coordinating blocks from this month's designers, or for any upcoming project. You can use the same discount code to save 10% on this bundle. Enter the code ToyWagon10 at checkout.
