Marcia Derse ~ Spotted Graffiti

Spotted Graffiti is all about color and texture. It boasts a vibrant color palette of vivid magenta, ocean blue, golden yellow, speckled grey and the sandy beige of a wind battered beach. The organic texture and the super soft, high-density cotton make it a dream to stitch.

Great Stash Buster Patterns!

We've been very impressed with the designs by Everyday Stitches, whether it's a pieced, applique or curved pattern. If you have scraps, we think you'll find inspiration here!
