Erik's Mystery Quilt Patterns

From the Back Steps

  • Winter hasn't been too cold so far; a few flurries here and there but not much accumulation. The wind is what keeps me indoors! Time for getting lots done! Hope your resolutions are holding up so far! --Erik

Erik's Tip

  • Cut a quick template from contrasting scrap fabric to make trimming a breeze! The fabric sticks to the piece you are trimming and makes it easy to turn the pieces on the cutting board!
