Year of Scrappy Triangles

My first 20 blocks of this fantastic sew along!! This is going to be so much fun to play with all the different layouts!! I will have to try harder not to use repeat fabrics. I have enough scraps of green that it shouldn’t be a issue. But that Owl is just so cute (with […]
