From October 4th – 31st, 2021 I’ll be hosting a Sew Along to make the Stratus 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.
