You are the Boss with this Stitch Along!

It’s a good day to be the boss… of your own quilt, that is! Lori Holt and It’s Sew Emma have teamed up to remind you that in quilting, the world does revolve around you. We know how easy it is to get pulled into patterns and to worry about everything being perfect. Still, hopefully, the You are the Boss Cross Stitch Pattern by Lori Holt can remind you whose opinions really matters.

This colorful collection of quilt blocks has a stitch count of 136w x 82h.

Kimberly will start stitching up her You are the Boss Cross Stitch on August 3. Read more below to learn about how you can stitch along!
