The River Rapids Sew Along starts on July 1st!

It's going to be lots of fun sewing the River Rapids Quilt together. There are lots of people already signed up and quite a few beginners. We all know that participating in a quilt-along is mostly about meeting new people, looking at pretty quilts being made and having fun, but lets face it, prizes just make it that little bit MORE fun!

Joining a Sew-Along or Quilt Along is a great way to connect with other quilters while also making a beautiful quilt. This image shows three ladies laughing and having fun while they sew their quilts.
