August happenings at the Keepsake Quilting Shop: Friday August 16th

Sew you want another easy first pattern? Meet Kendall and look at the Ashleigh pattern!

KendallKendall began sewing with her Grandmother when she was only 10 years old. They made pillows, blankets and even little stuffed bears! She started working at Keepsake Quilting only a year ago, but has since completed many projects. She has made everything from wall hangings, using panels, to our Yellow Brick Road and Rhubarb Pie patterns. Kendall loves working with batiks and is actually finishing up two Yellow Brick Road quilts right now while already planning for her next project, our Recipe Cards pattern!  In her free time, Kendall is studying Human Resources Management at Granite State College.

Here is Kendall’s almost completed Ashleigh quilt. One more border to go!
The Ashleigh kit and pattern are available here: Ashleigh Kit and Ashleigh Pattern.
