I have been reminded by my students, time and again that there is lots going on here at LynBrown.com. Our doll quilts series will continue through the summer and there are lots of other great free quilt patterns here on the site… Like our swap/scrap quilt patterns and our Quilter’s Alphabet quilt block of the week which will both be continuing all summer long.
And coming soon will be our 2012 Fall Quilts which will be the glorious and historic Burgoyne Surrounded (Supply List now available) and the beautiful Iris Quilt. Oh and just posted: The 2012 Sunset and Vine Mystery Quilt Supply List. Clues begin July 3. so keep your eye on LynBrown.com in the coming months. As always, there is more to see at our Etsy Shop. There must be something for everyone in that mix!
Thanks for checking in!
