Five-hour bed quilt

Five-hour bed quilt

I’ve got a brand new pattern that is super quick and easy to make. It’s a great quilt to make when you need a distraction from a complicated project, like my Block of the Month, or when you need to whip something up quick for a gift. The Five-Hour Bed Quilt uses a layer cake […]

I’ve been working on a new pattern and wanted to share a sneak peak with you all today. The entire quilt top went together in five hours from start to finish.
