New from Nancy Halvorsen

Nancy’s projects always make me smile. She is so creative when it comes to creating programs for shops and quilters as well. I love this latest idea. She will be releasing 6 new booklets next month and six more in the Fall. Each booklet includes a portion of a quilt that can be combined into a completed block of the month quilt. But this is the genius of Nancy! Each booklet includes smaller projects that can be companions to the finished quilt. Or, quilters can choose to make the smaller projects instead! Talk about getting the most bang for your buck!
