Stash Buster Challenge

Join our 2017 Stash Buster Challenge
This year Lavender Patch will be presenting a new series of classes geared toward using supplies you already have  ---  your stash fabrics!
Scrap quilts seem to exude a warmth all their own.  They lure you to take a rest with a snuggly quilt, good book and a cup of fragrant tea…
How many warm, beautiful quilts are hiding in your stash?  Let’s find out on this year’s exciting journey as we create functional beauty from fabrics on hand.
Here are some guidelines that go along with this challenge that will earn you points throughout the year.
