Excuse Me, My Quilt Nerd Is Showing!

I tell ya, there’s nothing like receiving Quilt Show entry forms in the mail to get you back into the swing of quilting again! After a lull of about three weeks or so of near to no sewing or quilting, it was a wonderful feeling to get back on the machine. I admit that over […]

WIP Weekly Update | #3

Okay. Confession time. I haven’t done as much as I had hoped for this past week on the Rail Fence Quilt. I did do a few more lines of quilting here and there over the days but not to the point where it’s worthy for a WIP photo opportunity… In the moments after I finished […]
