Against the Grain Quilt Along

 Who is ready for a new quilt along?

The Against the Grain Quilt Along will start February 24 and run every two weeks through May 26. This pattern is for quilters of any skill.

I will be making this quilt for my husband who always supports my efforts and still doesn't have his own quilt to snuggle under.

Against the Grain makes a simple statement and your choice of color placement makes that statement come alive. We will talk fabrics and fabric prep February 24.
