Project Spotlight!

I want to take a minute to talk about this cute wreath that was constructed by Karen C. !

               

The class for this wreath was held back in December. The technique is simple and beginner friendly. We positioned our fabric squares on a fusible grid. Once the fabrics were positioned correctly they were then fused in place. Everything is then stitched and pressed and like magic your quilt is almost complete. Anyway, I really want to share Karen's fabric choices. The wreath is beautiful, now look at her fabric choices.

       

Everyone who has viewed them was surprised, well shocked that those fabrics could turn into such a beautiful wall hanging. Just take a moment to think about those fabrics. Why do they work? If you find choosing fabrics difficult, or frightening just know we are here to help you with your fabric choices!    

New Pattern from Jo and Smile Spinners!

The sample is hanging in our classroom! It is in 2 colorways! Stop by and see it!
