November 10th, 2015 by Camelot Fabrics

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having a marvelous day! It’s the last day to enter our Make a Wish Giveaway, so be sure to head on over to our Facebook Page!

 

Time for this week’s How To’s Day! Today we are sharing our Play Date Quilt by Tamarinis tutorial with you. Play Date is a fun, lap-sized quilt that features a mix of windmills to create a unique pattern. This playful quilt is perfect for a newborn or little one to snuggle up with. Originally inspired by our Take Flight collection, Play Date also looks great with our With Love Collection – the whimsical floral and happy heart prints are perfect in this quilt design!
