Fat Quarter Flourish quilt parade from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I’m teaming up with Allison Cotton, owner of My Timeless Day quilt shop in Canton, SD, to host a virtual quilt parade. We’re using my pattern, Fat Quarter Flourish, and we hope you’ll join the fun.


What’s a quilt parade?  Well, it’s similar to a sew along, but it only has one deadline . . .  the finish! We’ll give you plenty of time to select your fabrics and piece your top. Then we’ll ask you to share a photo of your finished top either on Instagram or on Facebook (or both) using ...
