Back to School Quilting

The Perfect Pencil, free motion quiltingGood Morning, Quilters!

Summer passes all too quickly…

The only consolation–Back to School means two things:  school supplies (I LOVE School Supplies!  and more time to quilt!

Craftsy is hosting a FREE one day, All-you-can-watch,  Back to School event on September 4th.  Learn more HERE   

It’s a great opportunity to try a variety of classes!

Add a little “touch of class” to your quilts this month with a Back-to-School motif.

Or just doodle the motif onto your calendar, notebook, homework….

Do YOU love school supplies?

Have YOU used any of these motifs on a quilt?  How did YOU use them?

We’d LOVE to hear!
