PTBO Makes – The Quilter’s Bolt – Part Two

PTBO Makes - The Quilter's Bolt Shop - The Little Bird Designs

This week on PTBO Makes, I’m taking you on a tour inside The Quilter’s Bolt! This is Kate’s second feature and I can’t wait to show you what’s in store!

The Quilter’s Bolt is a place where people come together over their mutual love of fabrics, to learn, grow, laugh and make new friends. Plentiful colour, patterns and inspiration are the things that greet you at the door.

Kate has an abundance of patterns to get you into the swing of quilting or bag making. This Cat Quilt happens to be a fave of mine and I just might have one in the works right now! She has patterns for every skill level and a variety of pieced and paper-pieced to choose from.
