I had a lightbulb moment this past week. It was one of those moments where I thought, "this will either be a game changer and solve a problem for many quilters, or it will be an epic fail that I can laugh about later". Worst case, I would only be out $30, so I decided to give it a try.
If you have been quilting for any length of time, you most likely have a stack of precut 10″ fabric squares in your stash. Many of these may be left over from a previously completed quilt, and they are perfect for bowl cozies!
I used to think that quilt guilds were something I would look into after retirement. Check out these six reasons why I believe it is worth your time and money to be a part of a quilt guild (or two!) in your area right now.
