I have a few quilting supplies in my shop, the Seven-Year Stitch, but my store mainly caters to embroiderers (as you probably know). Still, we crafty people enjoy all different kinds of projects; so when I ran across a tutorial for making a scrap quilt, I had to share it with  you.

As always, if you make this, please share a photo of your completed project! Happy stitching! 🙂
