This week, we’re going to keep it sweet and simple. We worked on a couple of quilts from Jeanne Horton‘s Traveler line of fabric and it’s kind of crazy how different they turned out. Both are really good beginner projects (Traveler’s Crossroads is a super great project for new quilters!) and the colors of the quilts are nice and subtle. Very earth tones, but the fabrics are absolutely gorgeous!
Hope you all had a great Easter and we’ll see you next week
