Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

I wanted to make something to brighten up my sewing area! I love the simple strip piecing of the spools and sewing machine and how they look against the crisp white background. This project was great for using up some scraps and gave me an opportunity to practice some free motion quilting.
