Making any quilt is fun, but especially more fun with friends! Let’s make the Connector Quilt together in this Sew-A-Long!
From April 19 – May 24, 2021 I’ll be hosting a Sew-A-Long to make the Connector Quilt Pattern! Each week we will make small bits of progress towards making a completed quilt top! Of course, there will be PRIZES each week, and I’ll be showing up weekly in emails & videos to discuss the progress. Keep reading to find out all the details.
