Pre-Cut Combo Quilts
14 Quilts that Blend Jelly Rolls, Turnovers and More
DEBRA FEHR GREENWAY

• Pre-cut fabric packs are immensely popular among quilters; this is

May 2012

the first book to combine two or more pre-cut sizes in one quilt
• Perfect for a range of skill levels, with 15+ projects in a variety of

sizes from wall hangings to bed quilts
• Projects incorporate techniques not commonly used in pre-cut

quilts like appliqué and paper piecing
Instead of being restricted by fabric cut to just one size, readers can
mix and match strips, triangles and squares, and will even learn to use
fat quarter bundles in new ways by cutting them into standard “precut” sizes. Quilters will learn about coordinating pre-cut bundles in
different colorways and from different fabric manufacturers and will
explore techniques rarely found in pre-cut quilts, like appliqué and
paper piecing. Plus, easy fabric-requirement formulas will enable quilters to combine jelly rolls, layer
cakes, turnovers, stash stacks, dessert rolls and more into inventive projects they’ll love.

Making the Horizontal Sashing

Making the Border

15

Measure the length and width of the quilt top through its centre – it
should measure approximately 54½in x 68½in. From the seven 2in
width of fabric background strips, piece together two strips 68½in in length
and two strips 58½in in length (that is, the 54½in measured width plus the
width of the vertical borders). If your measurements are different, cut your
borders to match your measurements. When sewing the borders to the quilt
top, match the middle of the border strip to the middle of the quilt edge. Pin
the middle and ends first and then pin in between as necessary. Sew the
68½in strips down the left and right sides of the quilt top and press towards
the blocks. Now sew the 58½in lengths across the top and bottom of the quilt
top and press towards the blocks.

The row-to-row sashing linking the rows of blocks is made in a
similar way to the vertical sashing. Note the link fabrics used in the
rows above and below the row of horizontal sashing and then take one or two
(depending on whether it’s a half link or whole link) 2½in squares of each of
these link fabrics, two 2½in background squares, four 2½in x 4½in background
rectangles and three 2½in x 4½in background rectangles. Piece together as
shown in the diagram below, pressing towards the link fabrics.

16

Sew all the horizontal sashing strips to the block rows and press
towards the block rows. Now sew all the rows together.

17

Finishing the Quilt

18

The quilt top is now complete. Prepare the top, wadding (batting) and
backing fabric for quilting and quilt as desired. Bind the quilt to finish,
following the instructions in Techniques for Binding a Quilt.

Pinwheel Paradise

SP12_pp1-21_Crafts.indd 11

This quilt did require a little thought in the placement of the pieces but it went together beautifully much to
our delight. We used an American Civil War range Comfort from one of the Collection for a Cause ranges by
Howard Marcus and chose a pale grey-blue for the background fabric, which seemed in keeping with the Civil
War fabrics. The variation was made by Pam and Nicky Lintott and longarm quilted by The Quilt Room.

Dreaming From the
Journal Page
Transforming the Sketchbook to Art
MELANIE TESTA

• A unique approach to art journaling, moving beyond the process
of self expression by providing concrete instructions for developing
ideas from the journal into actual works of art
• A valuable repository of key artistic concepts and skill-building
instruction that will appeal to artists and enthusiasts working in
both paper and fabric
The artist’s journal is not only a great place to start a library of personal marks,
doodles and ideas, but also a forum to experiment with ideas for projects that
ultimately move beyond the journal page. Here, the reader is encouraged to
experiment and play in the journal, while also learning step-by-step techniques
for working in a variety of media. Readers explore techniques, organize their
memories and create a personal visual language, thus gaining confidence to
develop their ideas into tangible works of art.

12 Common Manga
Facial Expressions
Japanese artists have found a way of conveying emotions
that is fresh, original and instantly readable to people all
over the world. Here are twelve facial expressions manga
artists use most.

Ecstatic Joy
Pull this one out when simple happiness just
won’t cut it. The “squeezed shut” eyes are a
classic form of manga shorthand for conveying
big time happiness. The bottom of the mouth
may be left unrendered as a stylistic quirk.

Sadness or Regret
The expression is in the eyebrows. They follow a crooked
path as they curve toward the
center of the forehead. The
heavy eyelids and the tiny frown
add to the sense of melancholy.

SP12_pp32-36_ComicArt.indd 33

Anger
Similar to the look of determination, but with
extra crooks on the ends of the eyebrows. The
wide open mouth, the bared teeth-- everything
comes together to convey her rage.

ALSO AVAILABLE:
978-1-4403-0862-8

Cheerful
The default manga facial expression. The smile is subtle with a
small, gentle curve. The bottoms
of the eyes are often somewhat
flattened, suggesting the cheeks
rising to cover the eyes just a
touch as the character smiles.

Confusion
This look of quiet befuddlement is conveyed
mainly by the eyebrows.
One is angled down as if
slightly angry, the other
raised as if surprised.

Determination
A common emotional state in any action-oriented manga. Make sure you get the angle
and proximity of the eyebrows to the upper
eyelashes right. The clenched teeth and the
break in the line surrounding the mouth are
common in manga faces.

Concern
This is a great all-purpose
expression to use whenever a
character is serious or making
an argument .The eyebrows are
slightly curved, with just a hint of
furrowing to the brow.

Distress
A manga staple, this
look comes out at
moments of crisis.
The eyebrows curve
upward and at least
one of them ends in
a zig-zag, signifying a
furrowed brow. The
irises don’t quite touch
the upper eyelids,
adding to the sense of
heightened emotion.

Embarrassment
A great one for comedic
moments: The character is caught
in an awkward position and must
talk her way out of it. Combine
the apologetic upturned eyebrows
with a big smile. Add blush, wideopen eyes, and you’ve got someone going very red in the face.
Boredom
Flatten the upper eyelashes and tuck the irises
at least halfway underneath. The eyebrows float
above the eyes at a very neutral angle, and the
mouth is small and closed.

Surprise
This look is seen again
and again in love stories
as the character discovers new information.
Note the small irises,
and how they float
within the whiteness
of the eyes. The open,
gasping mouth also
adds to the effect.

Sadness
Make the irises large and tuck them well
beneath the upper eyelids. Don’t overdo
the streaming tear, one or two are plenty.
The shape of the mouth suggests a quivering lower lip.

Acadian Dragon

Biology
Dracorexus Acadius

The Acadian dragon is the largest dragon species in
North America. The female and male live together in
a lair on the seashore where the male will be able to
hunt for food in the oceans while the female guards the
lair and her young from predators. Acadian dragons
are extremely long lived because of their hibernation
habits. It is believed that a dragon may sleep more than
two thirds of its life, slowing its metabolism for months.
Older dragons can enter a kind of torpor that can last

can weigh up to 20,000 pounds and need to eat over 150
pounds of meat per day. The primary food for the green
dragon is small whales and porpoises, while larger dragons have been know to catch and carry off fully grown
killer whales.

digital, and books that provide a clear explanation of type principles are strong sellers

Typography is everywhere. From a drive down the highway or shopping in

Referred to as the “Justin Bieber of
blogging” by Forbes, DANNY VITTORE

Back the F*ck Up! is a celebration of 30 creatures great and small that are revered for their coolness, whether for their “don’t give a crap” attitude or being a
boozehound. Animals include the vicious cassowary bird, which is capable of delivering a fatal falcon kick to people; the mongoose, which fights snakes just because it wants to; the polar bear, the only animal in the world that actively hunts
humans; and the caterpillar, which is a lot more insane than people may think.

is a columnist for Cracked.com. Having
written six features for the humor site,
Vittore’s “Six Animals That Just Don’t
Give a F*ck” was an Internet sensation.
His hilarious piece went viral, with 1.5 million views three
weeks after it was posted. It now has racked up nearly 2.5
million views and 70,000 Facebook shares. Soon to be a
freshman at NYU, he also claims to have wrestled a honey
badger and won.

happen, though, because the honey badger is one badass motherfucker.
Let’s just start with its name. The honey badger. How did a supposedly
badass animal get this ludicrously non-badass name? Well, the answer is the
honey badgers attack beehives and eat ... something from there. For many
years, people assumed honey, but it turns out, it was actually the larvae, the
honey was just an extra little bonus. And let’s get this straight. The honey
badger roams Africa. So the bees that the honey badger has to deal with are
properly Africanized bees, the most aggressive kind that sting like crazy. The
honey badger couldn’t give half a shit. It gets stung so many times by the
bees, who are trying to protect their babies, and it just keeps going on like the
juggernaut. Contrast this to bears in North America who get scared off (after
just trying to steal honey) by puny normal bees. This, dear reader, is merely
the tip of the iceberg.
Whilst being the same size as a smallish dog, it is more aggressive than
an attack dog on crack cocaine. Honey badgers have been known to take
on lions, leopards, and all sorts of other large African predators. They have
also been known to win a lot, too, but not always, because even monkeys fall
out of trees sometimes. Also, when hunting, they literally go to the ends of
the earth to get what they want. A honey badger has been filmed climbing
a really large tree to get at a king cobra. It troubled itself to get into an even
more troubling situation, since it’s not like king cobras are harmless. But
the crowning moment of badassery is brought to you by National “We Lie
Sometimes” Geographic.
A camera crew was following a honey badger known as Kleinman.
Kleinman was feeling peckish, as honey badgers are wont to do, and set upon

doll in the attic who has a secret life with other discarded playmates

You’ll find it in woodland and hedgerows, particularly where the soil is limey or
chalky. The Cherries are quickly taken by the birds, and it is more likely that you
will be using garden or commercially grown Cherries for your wine.

Cherry Wine
A good Cherry Wine is smooth and medium-sweet, light but with full Cherry
flavors. The color depends on the type of Cherries used. A blend of fruits can be
used, or just one type, and you will need to use more Cherries if all are sweet.
You’ll need
1.8 kg (4 lb) sour Cherries or 2.7 kg (6 lb) sweet Cherries
15 ml (3 teaspoons) acid blend
2 Campden tablets, crushed (see Note, page 98)
2.5 ml (½ teaspoon) grape tannin
1.2 kg (2½ lb) sugar
4.5 liters (1 gallon) hot water
yeast and nutrient
2.5 ml (½ teaspoon) pectic enzyme powder (5 ml/1 teaspoon for sour Cherries)
sugar syrup (optional, see Method)
1 vitamin C tablet, crushed

Method
1 Wash the fruit and reject any Cherries that are unsound, or over- or under-ripe.
Remove the stems and any leaves. Lightly crush the Cherries in a fermenting
bin and add the acid blend, a crushed Campden tablet, and the grape tannin.
2 Stir in the sugar, pour on the hot water, and stir well to dissolve the sugar.
3 Cover and leave to steep for 24 hours. Activate the yeast at the end of this
period (see page 35).
4 Add the pectic enzyme powder and yeast, cover, and leave to ferment for
about five days, stirring daily and pushing down the Cherries as they rise.
5 Strain off the liquid, pressing the pulp to extract all the juices. Transfer to a
demijohn and fit the airlock. Leave in a warm place to ferment for about four
months, racking once or twice as the liquid clears.
6 When fermentation has ceased and the wine is clear, add the crushed vitamin
C tablet to prevent oxidation and bottle the wine in dark bottles. Cork and
label. Store for a year before drinking.

• The projects use only inexpensive materials that are easily found

at local home center stores
• Includes a training manual (also expanded in this second edition)

on using each tool, making it perfect for the beginner
• The projects are not the typical, boring napkin holders; they are

instead tasteful and useful, making the book a good choice for
the experienced woodworker in a hurry
Beginning woodworkers are constantly stymied by the apparent
need for thousands of dollars worth of tools to start their hobby. Once they have the tools they face
a learning curve to understand how to use them. The next problem is finding wood to build the
projects. Not everyone has a lumberyard nearby. This book will show readers how to build quality
furniture projects that can be completed by any woodworker with a modest (but decent) kit of tools
in less than two days of shop time, and using raw materials that are available at any home center. The
enclosed tool manual explains all the tools and shows readers how to perform the basic operations in
a step-by-step format.

been ignored, and this book will document proportions and details of
this important and distinctive style through measured drawings of original pieces. The heart of the book will be measured construction drawings, allowing readers to better
understand and reproduce these pieces. There will be several chapters of introductory text discussing
the historic context of the furniture, the craftsmen who made it, and the techniques they used.

• The projects use only inexpensive materials that are easily found

at local home center stores
• Includes a training manual (also expanded in this second edition)

on using each tool, making it perfect for the beginner
• The projects are not the typical, boring napkin holders; they are

instead tasteful and useful, making the book a good choice for
the experienced woodworker in a hurry
Beginning woodworkers are constantly stymied by the apparent
need for thousands of dollars worth of tools to start their hobby. Once they have the tools they face
a learning curve to understand how to use them. The next problem is finding wood to build the
projects. Not everyone has a lumberyard nearby. This book will show readers how to build quality
furniture projects that can be completed by any woodworker with a modest (but decent) kit of tools
in less than two days of shop time, and using raw materials that are available at any home center. The
enclosed tool manual explains all the tools and shows readers how to perform the basic operations in
a step-by-step format.

• Weaves history of Southern furniture style and its makers into

photographs and drawings of the same
• 27 projects presented with measured drawings/photos

Historic forms of simple furniture have long been popular with amateur woodworkers, collectors and those seeking to better understand
our past. But furniture from the Southern United States has largely
been ignored, and this book will document proportions and details of
this important and distinctive style through measured drawings of original pieces. The heart of the book will be measured construction drawings, allowing readers to better
understand and reproduce these pieces. There will be several chapters of introductory text discussing
the historic context of the furniture, the craftsmen who made it, and the techniques they used.

explanations on how to distinguish major from minor varieties
• Hundreds of large, impressive images highlighting key areas of

genuine U.S. coins

The best way to know whether or not a coin is genuine is to understand what a genuine coin looks like. And a picture is worth a
thousand words, which is what makes this book a must-have. With
the advent of online coin sales and the flood of counterfeit coins
from China, collectors are increasingly wary about the authenticity
of coins. This visual guide to U.S. coins shows collectors how to
identify a genuine coin from an altered or one variety from another.
This is an ideal product for anyone looking for a handy, portable guide to identifying genuine U.S.

accumulation of a series of coins. Where do they turn
when looking to take the next step in their collecting?
Warman’s State Quarters Album and Warman’s Lincoln

Cents Album are the perfect answer. With a modern

Premium Album fits nicely on any collector’s bookshelf.

Massive lugs and triangular, full-length ejector rods give Fausti guns exceptional
longevity.

From forging to finished part, Fausti
steel undergoes many inspections. Final
fitting is by hand.

Competitive shooters are familiar with
the DT10 stable of trap, skeet and sporting over/unders. In 12 gauge only, they
have manual safeties and detachable
(DT) triggers. But on a recent visit, I direct my time at Beretta to the company’s
new SV10 Perennia O/U. The SV10 is
a boxlock with traditional low-profile
breeching, trapezoidal monoblock
shoulders and double locking lugs. An
oversize hinge pin with a new reinforcing
shoulder holds up under extended use.
“Extractors run the length of the monoblock, so they operate very smoothly,”
Luisa points out. “You can choose
ejection or extraction.” Machined from
a steel billet, the nickel-finished receiver
features an arrowhead motif in relief.
Like all Beretta shotgun barrels, those

too – although I prefer a manual switch.
My first shots with the SV10 Perennia
come on an Italian skeet field modified
to give shooters of modest ability the
illusion that they’re competent. I’m duly
grateful.
Shooting the SV10 proves a pleasure
– in no small part because I’m having
a good day, and the clay targets are
not. Then too, the shotgun babies my
clavicle. Its walnut buttstock features an
optional “Kick-Off” mechanism, a pair
of hydraulic pistons inside that absorb
much of the jolt of firing. There’s noticeably less muzzle climb too. Because
claims of “less recoil” abound, I test the
Kick-Off device by following target loads
in the 7-pound gun with the potent 2.75and 3-inch magnums you might choose
for a goose hunt or turkeys. No pain! And

of the SV10 are cold hammer-forged.
A thick steel tube is kneaded into a
long, slim barrel around a mandrel, by
hammers that deliver terrific pressure,
1,800 strikes per minute. They’re joined
near the muzzle with silver solder, which
also secures the quarter-inch matted rib.
Special welds mate the rear of the barrels
at the monoblock. Five Optimachoke
tubes come with every SV10. They’re steel
shot-friendly, as is the chrome-lined bore.
The SV10’s trigger has titanium
components for fast lock speed. The
guard, an elegant steel loop, properly
matches the curve of the trigger. The
break is clean, consistent and manageable. A transverse button in the safety
pad selects the barrel of your choice. It
is snappy and refuses to hang up in the
middle. The automatic safety works well

Horse Anatomy For Performance
A Practical Guide to Training, Riding and Horse Care
GILLIAN HIGGINS WITH STEPHANIE MARTIN

• Reveals the internal mechanics of equine movement through

accurate artwork painted on the hides of real horses and explains
the importance and relevance of the anatomical system to riding,
training, and horse management
• A fascinating ‘inside-out’ view of how the horse uses its body,

presented graphically with crisp full-color photos
• An even more in-depth follow up to the highly successful How

Your Horse Moves
To visualize the mechanics of horse movement, and to understand
how anatomy relates to its performance and wellbeing, equine expert
Gillian Higgins developed the original and highly visual technique of
painting internal diagrams directly onto live horses. This follow up to
How Your Horse Moves is an intricate examination of how the horse uses its body. With 11 chapters
detailing the complex anatomical systems that function together to maintain life, this is the most visually appealing, original and easily-understandable book on horse anatomy available.
