Simple steps will take your quilts to a new artful level! Katie walks you through making a simple block using her 3 steps: Make a design based on a photo or drawing. Add a "ghost" layer that is lighter or darker than the base blocks colors. Create a color wash that allows use of even more colors in the quilt. Blocks are constructed using raw-edge or turned-edge applique. Includes Katie's Seven Step Program for choosing perfect fabric combinations.
