Monday Musings – my quilting progress

Tonight’s post is going to be a little more like a journal entry than anything else. I had set a goal this year of wanting to improve my free motion quilting skills. I’m finding that right now, I’m working on several smaller pieces rather than a large quilt, and that gives me plenty of leeway […]

Throwback Thursday – A boy and his quilt
