Spin-e-Fex 8 Tulip Block
Using the Westalee Design Spin-e-Fex 8 and Westalee Design Circles on Quilts this project is a two-layered peek-a-boo TempLee project. We will work with the templates as intended and in a manner that will produce a lovely tulip-like design. This project is geared towards an experienced user if utilizing the two layers of peek-a-boo fabric. However, beginners are able to produce this block as well utilizing just one layer of peek-a-boo fabric, or just stitching this beautiful design.

Katherine Clawson, Sew Steady Promoted Instructor, Owner / Operator 906 Quilting Services
Kathy was raised by a mother who was passionate about sewing and instilled this love into her at a young age. While growing up Kathy sewed most of her own cloths and designed wallets, purses, and other bags. Then she found quilting and fell in love with the process and working with color and design. Free motion quilting became Kathy’s passion until she discovered Westalee Rulers and Templates. Utilizing her many years of free motion quilting set Kathy up for success with rulers and templates and a love of incorporating them together for a unique look.
Kathy owns her own quilt shop, located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where education is the main focus. Her philosophy is to accomplish three things with her students. First, have fun. Second is to learn something with each class, and third is to leave with more confidence. Her teaching style is laid back and inclusive believing that not everyone learns at the same pace or in the same manner. Kathy incorporates written instruction, demonstration, and hands on approach to a well rounded educational experience.
