Evergreen and Ivy Mystery Sew Along
A HUGE thank you to all of my Sew Along friends! We learned a lot and created a beautiful quilt. I hope you love the pattern now that you're wrapping up. It looks beautiful in a lot of colorways! I know I will make it again and again.
Two things now that we're just about finished...
First, I would love to hear from you about your experience. It's difficult for us to gauge how many people participated, so a quick message would give us some idea. Second, we would like to know how we can improve these Sew Alongs in the future.
Thank you for your faith and trust in our project. We enjoyed hearing from you with questions as we went along. Quilters are such wonderful people!
If you would like a copy of the full pattern for yourself or a friend, it will be available at Calico Hutch.
We would love to see your finished quilt. Post on Facebook, or just email us, and we will post for you!
