Charcoal & Cream Block of the Month program

Hello my Friends! I promised a deeper overview and insight into the upcoming CHARCOAL & CREAM MYSTERY BOM FOR 2019 so here we are. Each month you will receive a black [charcoal] and a cream fabric. You will also receive some ivory solid for the background to mix in with the cream prints. You will work with those fabrics mostly just for that month and you will lay them aside for some additional sashing/posts and other finishing items.

It was then that we decided that we wanted to build an online community for those people… and for any of you who were looking to join in on the fun. And you all came out of the woodwork and we have loved getting to know you…
