Log Cabin Quilting: Creativebug Workshops

I'm so excited about my new Log Cabin Quilting workshops with creativebug! There are four hour-long class premieres: Square Within a Square Pillows, Baby Quilt, Modern Crosses Table Runner, and Quartered Log Cabin Tote Bags. Each project includes variations and personalized details to add. I got to share some log cabin quilting history and alternate block settings, and film at some of my favorite fabric stores in Portland, too. I'd love to see what you make!Plus, you can get an unlimited Creativebug subscription for just $4.95 a month.
