Chic Neutrals has three quilts in the quilting cottons, a tote bag, and table runner/napkin set in linens. You can see the linen patterns here.

Trinket is a paper pieced quilt – don’t let that intimidate you though! It’s a simple block to sew. Included in the pattern are baby, throw, twin, queen and king sizes. Featured here is the twin, which used 20 fat quarters + a variety of low volume backgrounds.

Hi there! I’m excited to share a new book with all of you today (and give an ebook away too!)
