If you would like to take a look, you will find the link here.....look for it under the heading for Canadian Quilter Magazine Spring 2018

Quilt Beginnings, Endings & In Between: Without a List from Pink Doxies


One Sweet Baby Quilt Ready to Deliver

Week 2 with No List

Welcome back to another weekly narrative of living/working without a list. I've gained unexpected insight while purging the house of too much stuff, and am eager to share it with you. I keep hearing in the comments how many of you are on the same journey, and feel I'm in good company. 




The Sweet Modern Baby One Patch is finished and delivered. (I wish all my own deliveries had gone so smoothly.) The red binding was a cheery zinger on a traditional design that still ...
