Last month, I was approached by the managers of Jackman's Fabrics in Fairview Heights, IL, asked if I would be willing to help them out by making some shop samples. I was flattered and after discussing all of the details, I agreed to make one on a trial basis. They even took notes on my preferences of design and fabrics!!!!

Disclosure: I received supplies to make this project from Jackman's Fabrics in Fairview Heights, IL. The quilt will be hung as a shop sample in their store to promote sale of both the pattern and fabric lines, In exchange, the quilt will be returned to me at the end of the promotion. They did not require me to write a positive review of any of the products. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
