July Workshop – Scrap Quilt

On July 29th (Saturday) we will be having our scrap quilt workshop. The design we voted on was Trail Mix. Here is the link to the pattern:

Download the pattern, print it out and get your fabric baggies labeled and put some scraps laying around your sewing area in them.  Seriously, this quilt is a great way to clean up that ever rising stash of small scraps that you just hate to part with.
