So happy to share (another) finished Rise Above quilt!

Rise Above: Quilt Along!

It's finally time to tell you my news! I have been working behind the scenes for two months to prepare the biggest quilt along event we've ever hosted. This is one you don't want to miss because it's as close to 'in person' as we can get: I'll be sewing right along with you and teaching you the steps via video throughout. Rise Above is a modern medallion style quilt by Charisma Horton. I saw it and knew it would make an amazing project for a quilt along. It features basic shapes and classic blocks in a creative layout that...
