Erik's Mystery Quilt Patterns

From the Back Steps

  • Weather has been rainy. We were off to a good Spring-start! My favorites, the lilacs, are budding and the flowers are just beginning to show...and there are little violets all over the yard that lend cheerful glances even in the rain! --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!
