10+ small quilting projects to make in a weekend!I am not a quilter! But I have a lot of fun making quilts. It can be hard to carve out time to plan, piece, quilt, and finish an entire throw/bed size and I often have readers say they want to try a quilt but never have. I thought it was high time I made a list of small quilting projects to make in a weekend in the hopes they’ll try one of those!
