Prairie Life
Prairie Life Price: $27.99 
Have you heard of layered patchwork? That's where you avoid many of the pitfalls of traditional piecing, including tricky points. You learn to cut shapes and top stitch them to a base in order to get them done quickly. It also allows you to simplify blocks that include triangles and curves. Traditional patchwork methods are also included. You can make quilts, runners and pillows to infuse your home with a prairie-life look.
