It was a great meeting that we talked about our favorite Quilting Tools. Below you will find a great resource to some great tools.
Pat introduced the topic of Bold Prints. We went around and looked at everyones Show and Share and asked the Maker what drew them to the chosen prints. It was interesting. Some were drawn to the colors, some to the pattern on the print, and others to the size of the print. Some were geometric others floral, others neon. So many options!
