Pack It Up!

Grab those tickets and pack your bag - let's go travel!

It's a great theme for July's Quilt Block Mania after a year of staying at home - I think we're all ready to get back out there!

Along with the travel theme is this Wanderlust Design Seeds color palette. It suits traveling quite well.
