Project Design Team Wednesday~Q's Doll Quilt Tutorial

29 May 2013

 I'm so excited to share this post mainly since I have wanted to make a quilt of sorts for a long time. I finally had the excuse to make one with RILEY BLAKE FABRICS and for even more fun, check out the Riley Blake Fabric Fest in Las Vegas, NV in September where we will be teaching a class.

It's a good thing I picked the quilt that requires many colors and patterns because I got to use most of my very favorites ... more

How about 2 strips of bacon with your doughnut? Enjoy more photos of Quilt Market, if you have any specific questions about a collection, we welcome your comments.  Thanks for all of the comments about our latest video.
