A Letter to My Daughter PART 1 Make Time for a Hobby and The Road Less Travelled • This year's Block of the Month quilt was inspired by Natalie’s three daughters and designed as a special memento for them. “I wanted to make a quilt that is an heirloom for my daughters long after I’m gone,” she reflects. The BOM will feature Natalie's new Heartstrings fabric range, original stitchery patterns and an exclusive printed panel.
