FQS Staff Gets Quilty - April 2016!

Hello! We are so excited to show you what we've been sewing this month in our
"FQS Staff Gets Quilty" Series. Here's a sampling of some of the things we've made! 
Not only does Kimberly manage to get a lot of quilting and sewing done while balancing family life and business, her projects turn out so beautifully. What an inspiration! Here are some of the projects Kimberly completed this month.

It's too soon to reveal almost all of the fabulous and fun
projects Codi created this month since they're still top secret,
but we can share these gorgeous quilt blocks.

Sarah completed a wide variety of projects this month - from a playmat

Pack n' Pillow can be customized with fabric of your choice from our current lineup.
