"This is a fun project that I add onto as I travel.  “To be honest the first of these little quilts were inspired by a trip to Nepal”. – Pam Holland

In this fun and imaginative class you can add your own bits and pieces to the project. Look for re-purposed fabrics and old linens, fabric from your travels or old cloths.  Look for interesting thread as you travel, beads work well too!
