Spring Quilt Market 2013: Schoolhouse

Our first day at Spring Quilt Market was spent at school. Schoolhouse to be exact! This year, we listened to great speakers, saw adorable projects and are now our brains are stuffed full of valuable information. This year we give Schoolhouse an A+. Keep reading for a lesson in Schoolhouse, but we promise the quiz at the end will be easy!

A breakfast of champions before Schoolhouse! Mother's Bistro in Portland is highly recommended by Fat Quarter Shop!
