4. Remove the paper backing.

Spring Market 2012

We loved being so close to home in Kansas City! Here was our little corner booth. We introduced our Heartfelt Home collection and the Around Times Square bright batik quilt. Heartfelt Celebration and Heartfelt Inspirations project panels (each 1 yd. and make 5-7 projects) along with our two new blender pieces of tossed crosses and a brown tonal coordinate with the fabrics from the Bella Verona collection we designed for Timeless Treasures.

Here is the Around Times Square using bright batiks. It can be used as a Block of the Month.
