Pull out all those old fabric scraps your grandma gave you. The time has come to create a quilt, the ultimate collage of colour. Start small with a car quilt or jump right in with a spread for your bed. Choose from two styles and four sizes. Quilt-making basics are "covered" from start to finish.
There are very few craft, quilting and sewing products on the market for ages 8 - 18. Sheila Zent of ExpressSew is working hard to fill the gap and renew sewing & quilting as a creative leisure activity for the next generation of do-it-yourselfers. ExpressSew patterns can be used for classes or alone, as the instructions are written to be self-guided. After students learn how to work with the teen-friendly format, they'll come back for each new edition.
