Make Sarah’s Colorful “Checks Mix” Quilt with APQ!

It’s “Graduation Season”, which means you’ll have just enough time to turn this quilt around for your favorite graduate during the otherwise-dreaded “Dorm Move-In Season”! Use Sarah Maxwell’s COLOR CRUSH FLANNELS and “Checks Mix” quilt design shown here, and in the August issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine!  The group of bright plaids is one of our 100% cotton Primo Plaid Flannel groups, loved for its quality and plush hand.
