As I write this, I am smiling because Yellow Brick Road is #3 on the Checker website’s top 20 patterns! And with that pattern, a legend was born!!! Sewers learned to quilt with that simple pattern – and then looked for other patterns by her because they are so easy to read and understand. After all, the cover catches your eye – but it is the content that keeps us coming back. And, Terry has the whole package!
These buckets are simple to sew, have optional handles, and offer teachable moments!
Stabilizers and interfacings matter! In this case, Terry used several products that give these buckets their shape – and keeps their shape – and they can even be washed! Sew Lazy Face-It ad Sew Lazy Stiff Stuff add body to the buckets and is easy to sew.

Sew Lazy Stiff Stuff

We all love Steam a Seam – and Terry prefers their quarter inch version for this project, but unfortunately the manufacturer is having paper issues so it is not available right now. So, until that product is available, she suggests Stitch Witchery.

And who would have thought that boning would stage a comeback??? Thank God it isn’t for its original use!!! This time, Terry uses it to create the bucket rim. And, it is so reasonably priced, one package makes tons!!! And you know, once they make one, they are not going to be able to stop!

Knit, Purl, and Roll
Quilters are creative – and have more than one hobby. In fact, many “quilt” shops are yarn shops as well. If we don’t knit, we certainly know people who do! And, this is the trendiest case I’ve seen! And look at her fabric choices! Grey is the new black – and zig zags are hot!!!

These are both fun projects that can be made in an afternoon – and offers lots of opportunities for teachable moments. They will come to make the projects – learning about interfacings and photo transfer will have them coming back for other classes! Add these to your shop hop samples and demos! You will be glad you did…..
