Would you believe this scrappy quilt was introduced nine years ago?

Come spend the day turning your scraps into a beautiful quilt. You will be surprised at how easy this scrappy quilt is created using this special tool. Quilts can look very different by staying within a color theme or by adding sashings, so you'll what to make more than one once you learn the technique. Prairie Points are the perfect finishing edge and binding technique. Lunch will be served, so all you have to do is sew, sew, sew. What fun is that!

Come join the fun in making this holiday runner for the winter season. Who doesn't love a snowman?
