Said fabrics are all chosen… Continue reading I had to Laugh

  So after taking the seam ripper to Letha's Electric Fan Quilted Block of the Month to remove some stitching that were behaving badly, well it wasn't so much the stitching as poor basting on my part. However it's so much easier to blame the quilt than take ownership of poor work on my part,… Continue reading Quilted Block of the Month – next step part 1
