4m3b Summer Inspiration

Warmer breezes seem to be blowing inspiration my way for the summer months ahead. Thoughts of lightweight quilts, patchwork tablecloths, and colorful cloth napkins sent me looking through the inventory at 4my3boyz Fabrics for this fabric fantasy. The Dots, Stripes, and Squiggles fabrics (on sale today and tomorrow) scream summer fun to me. See my inspiration photo with fabric picks below.
