This is going to be fun!!

The quilt is made with my newest fabric
 collection called STITCH...

Along with several Bee Backgrounds:)

If you are just joining us and you 
are looking for a kit...
simply do a quick google search of

P.S. I forgot to say that 
we will be doing the 
Fat Quarters Block
