Kansas Troubles Quilters Cozy Quilts and ComfortsKansas Troubles Quilters Cozy Quilts and Comforts
Easy to Stitch, Easy to Love
Lynne Hagmeier

Sew quilts in the instantly recognizable style of Kansas Troubles Quilters—two ways! Some designs are traditionally pieced, simplified for smooth and easy piecing. Others use Lynne’s clever layered-patchwork technique, where pinked-edge precuts reduce cutting time, minimize bulky seams, and skip pressing steps. The raw edges of layered-patchwork blocks barely fray when washed, giving a fluffy, snuggly finish. You’ll love the look of both kinds of quilts: cozy, country-style designs that call out “cuddle me!”

13+ Projects for the Double Wide Dresden Ruler
Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson

What is a Double Wide Dresden? It’s a fast, fun way to make classic Dresden blocks! These 36-degree Dresdens require only 10 wedges (instead of the traditional 20). Cut sewing time in half and create all the beauty with none of the fuss. There are no hand-appliqued centers—instead, stars appear with no raw edges! You can even cut wedges from strip sets. Make projects even easier with the companion Double Wide Dresden Ruler (sold by your favorite retailer).
