Another Dog vs Quilt Repair from From My Carolina Home

Sometimes, despite our best efforts, our furry friends can make a mess of a treasured quilt.  This one had been in a closet, but the dog found the door open one day, and began a chewing spree resulting in a lot of damage.  Add to that the wear and tear of a quilt over 60 years old, and it was next to ruin.  But, the quilt was precious, made by a grandmother in the 1950s.  The granddaughter was very upset to find it in this shape, and contacted me to see if it could be saved.  As I haven’t ...

Sew Berry Sweet from From the Strawberry Patch...

I had amassed a nice collection of various hexagons following our last block-of-the-month series. I knew how I wanted to set them together, and yet, they languished on the design wall. I had a stretch of a few days last week with nothing else on the calendar and began the process. I was excited about the prospects of this becoming a flimsy.  Row by row I worked, since each block had been cut
