Just same old, same old here.  Hexies, quilting, and a walk – no outside work was done yesterday and I think it will be raining today so I will get two days off of digging up the flower bed – gives me more time to get some more bulbs I guess! I think you can […]

Die Cutters from Quilts....etc.

Do you have an Accuquilt or some other form of fabric cutting machine?  I’ve got an accuquilt and I must admit I do not use the dies as much as I should – for the Batik bundle that I showed yesterday I decided whatever quilt I make next must be used from the dies that […]

The Halloween little table topper has the quilting done – now I need to decide what to use for the binding – it could be the same black and white stripe that the backing it or I have an orange fat quarter that would make enough that is the same as the outer sashing except […]
