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.
