It’s All About the Face: Part 1 from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

 ...and another class!

Near the end of my Click Buy Now binge, I signed up for a class series about quilted portraits. For many years I have wanted to delve into making quilts from photos of family, friends and animals. Some of you may have seen my first attempt when I created a pillow for my sister in memory of her beloved dog, Tyler—it’s my most popular post

Happy New Year! And, a Finally Finished! from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

Yes, dear readers, today is only January 2, and I have a Finally Finished to reveal. And some thoughts about learning curves.

Happy New Year! I know I already said it, but it feels good to say it. 2020 is SO LAST YEAR as the kids say, and I think we are all grateful that it is.

Who knew a year ago that when I may have mentioned how awful 2019 was, that 2020 would be worse?
