Amusement is a fun and quirky quilt inspired by the Ferris Wheels found on the Amusement Piers in NJ, where Michelle grew up. Ferris Wheels are enjoyed by so many of us, just like this quilt will be for the quilter making it and the recipient receiving it.

Finley’s Fence features playful rings of interwoven colors, made up of fat quarters, to create this modern play on an Irish Links quilt. This whimsical quilt comes together easily with the help of the Tucker Trimmer™ 1 and with Michelle’s inventive use of the Corner Pop™ tool the otherwise difficult angled/bias unit becomes tons of fun to make.

We usually associate a Diamond Rectangle unit with a traditional Storm at Sea design, but think again! Sea Glass is a great example of what wlse you can do with this simple unit. Choose a focus print, pull some coordinating fabrics from your stash, mix everything together with a light and a dark and you're headed for a great looking quilt. As always, your units will be made oversized and then trimmed to perfection with the Diamond Rects tool.
