It’s BOM Time…

and shop hop time…and recipe time…and generally a good time to stop by the shop.

Don’t forget to come by on Saturday and get your blocks for this month.  We are on the downhill slide and looking forward to seeing your finished quilts soon.

It will be a busy day, but all the more fun for that.

Yep, we might be going a little bananas, but you might enjoy the results.
