Quilt as You Go: Assembling the Quilt Top - My Experience and Thoughts from Shadows of the Blue Ridge

Hope Bag - My school holiday project. from Little Mama At Home

That being said, I did manage to finish the Tara Rebman Craftsy class 'Quilt as You Go Patchwork Bag' and it was amazing. Tara is incredible and after having her talk to me for so long, I feel like she is my friend ...
