Cyndi McChesney is going to take what you've always thought about a pre-printed quilt panel and turn it on its ear. As the 2015 NQA Certified Teacher of the Year, she is often asked, “what can a quilter do with a pre-printed panel?” Cyndi says that it comes down to a bit of basic math and some imagination. From creative cutting to the addition of other quilt elements, Cyndi shows you how to take a panel from dull to divine!



Then we meet fabric and product designer Stacy Iest Hsu, whose adorable fabric panels featuring a doll and animal friends encourage story telling and creative play in children. Stacy shares creative ideas for personalizing the individual doll or animal for the little person in your life.
