Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin

Classes here at Bright Hopes Quilting are a blast, and Leslie brings to hers a high level of energy as well as a broad base of knowledge. On Thursday, she and group of students worked on a kaleidoscope style design using the Clearview Triangle Ruler. If you look behind her on the display board, you'll see a project Leslie is working on and using as her demonstration.

The projects are coming from this book, Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin, by Sara Nephew & Marci Baker, which is chockablock with gorgeous quilt designs!
