Designed to use simple materials–a fat quarter, large pieces of felt or wool, and thread for embroidery–it’s a perfect project to cozy up with on cold winter days.

Mandy Leins was hooked on quilting after making her first Rail Fence quilt 11 years ago using her grandmother's 1943 in-cabinet Singer. Since that first quilt, Mandy's passion for quilting and teaching has turned into a business. A professional longarm quilter and pattern designer, Mandy's first two patterns were published in <i>Modern Quilts Unlimited</i> and one, "All Together Now," was juried at the Machine Quilters Exposition. Formerly, Mandy worked as a classical archaeologist and the ancient world continues to influence and inspire her quilt designs.
