This summer, we’re making our way through the Quilt USA! We have 50 states block patterns all ready to go, and an applique center proudly displaying the USA. Click Here for all the blocks and goodies including fabric requirements. To help you along, we’re bringing you a different technique each week that will help you with different blocks.
