Margaret Travis & Marie Darrow of Eazy Peazy Quilts

Her book – Eazy Peazy Gifts sold out early because it is lots of fast, simple gift items that can be made with a minimum of fabric and a maximum of charm.  And, each gift can also be used to demonstrate a variety of techniques – a home run for any shop owner!!!
