Quilted Features: SewBatik Diane Magidson

For years I'd attend quilt shows and like a magnet was drawn to this one booth, dripping with color, and full of gorgeous fabric, with a tiki hut - SewBatik. I'd chat with the owners Bruce or Diane when they weren't busy. When I was teaching I'd have dinner with them or help them with… Continue reading Quilted Features: SewBatik Diane Magidson
