It’s a new year, and that means that it is time for a NEW Quilt-A-Long! So today, we are launching the 2023 Sew With Me series! Join me as I teach you how to make some of the most fun and classic quilt blocks!
Throughout this series, I hope to teach you some new skills, tips, and tricks, and at the end of the series, we will have a fun selection of blocks to sew together into a sampler quilt!
The blocks will release the 2nd Thursday of each month. Each block will have a video tutorial and free PDF download.
