The Mystery quilt for June

Here is a photo of the June Mystery quilt. 



Sorry, the photo does the quilt no justice at all but hopefully, the phot0 will help you with placement as you create your own.  It's a real snuggler with blue minky on the back which we have available while it lasts.

We cut a few extra kits which are available at regular retail price.

Becky has a great quilt planned for July using the fabrics from "Toy Chest 3" collection from Penny Rose studios shown below.  Please join us!
