April Calendar - Computer Wallpaper

Here is a link to download wallpaper for your computer that is also practical. It is on the Landauer Publishing website and it is a free download.

The quilt is from my new book, Jelly Roll Jazz. The name of this quilt is Gypsy Jazz. I made it using 60 precut strips of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Each fabric roll had 30 strips. I used french braid design to make the vertical patchwork strips. The directions are in the book.

Jelly Roll Jazz

My latest book published by Landauer Publications is soon to be released. There are 9 great quilts to make taking advantage of those fantastic 2-1/2" precut strips. The book, a sequel to me first book, Jelly Roll Jambalaya.
The cover of my new book, Jelly Roll Jazz, has a Log Cabin quilt on the cover in a new, innovative design.  Other quilts in the book use hexagons, french braid strippy, bargello design and more. Each Quilt has a jazz theme name and description linking it to a specific jazz style.
