Celebration Quilt Along: Kick off!

Celebration Quilt Along: Kick off!

Ready or not, our first Official Sewing By Sarah Quilt-Along starts next week!  For our first effort, we’ve chosen a holiday-appropriate home decor piece--Celebration Slices by Tammy Silvers of Tamarinis. We really like this pattern for its versatility.  Tammy provides three different options, but with a little creativity, you can change the color story and embellishments to suit just about any holiday.

Here is our schedule of events for our quilt along:
