The iconic Monarch butterfly is in trouble. In the summer of 2022, it was put on the Endangered List. Let's change that. Not only can you plant the seeds of milkweed, you can plant the seeds of creativity. Can you do it with just eight colors? We encouraged you to push yourself creatively and think outside the box.

Use EIGHT COLORS to create an original 20-inch square quilted art work.

No other colors of fabric may be added. The only way to add more colors is with thread, paint, pencil, ink, beads, etc.




We encourage your to visit these Premier Shops in person to pick up your bundle. Support your local quilt shop!
