Coastal Getaway Batiks Quick Turn Quilt Sew Along


Coastal Getaway Batiks Quick Turn Quilt Sew Along
Many of you may be finding yourself with extra time on your hands during this unfortunate Coronavirus crisis and looking to start a new project.

We are here to offer some inspiration!

We have teamed up with fabric and pattern designer Monique Jacobs of Open Gate Quilts for an exclusive sew-along! 

Monique designed the Quick Turn pattern to feature her newest fabric collection Coastal Getaway Batiks by Maywood Studio.  We had the honor of showcasing this quilt in our quilt show booth at the Willamette Valley Quilt Festival in Albany Oregon on January 31, 2020. 

This quilt is stunning!!  The Coastal Getaway Batik fabrics are vibrant in blues, purples, and greens.  Team those up with the soft light colors and you have a fabulous pattern with lots of movement.
