Big mistake on Alaska – but by the end of the day I got it fixed and caught back up.  Way back on block #5 I messed up and didn’t realize it until yesterday when I was laying out Block 12 to get those four ready to sew and realized I didn’t have the red […]

Yesterday did not go as planned.  I had planned to have block 7 of Alaska finished and it wasn’t!  Instead I was fixing the signature block that got put in upside down.  Thank you Jeannie for letting me I would have been mad if it had gotten all the way to the quilt frame like […]

Design Walls from Quilts....etc.

Sometimes I really wish I had a larger design wall so I could fill it up with two or three quilts in progress instead of having to take one down when I want another one up  – but most of us just have a small space for a design wall and if you are lucky […]
