I’m Nervous

I have spent most of my time this week working on the black and red quilt. I've continued to make really great progress which I'm really excited about. Even with all the sewing I've done, there are still quite a few blocks that need to be made. I do like chipping away...

Wash, Rinse, And Repeat

I'm afraid this week I don't have much to share by way of new material. There are so many blocks that need to be made for this red and black quilt that I'm just focusing on getting them all done. However, I did start on the second set of blocks that are very similar...

Not Everyone Is Nice

I'm not very happy with my post last week. I feel like I rushed through the quilt show in an attempt to keep my Friday post schedule. I don't feel like I did the show justice, nor did I talk about the one negative thing that happened. I want to fix that this week....

My First Quilt Show

Today I was able to attend my first quilt show as a patron! Before today I had been to one in Florida, but I was there to help my Aunt and Uncle in their booth. I didn't actually walk around and see anything, especially since they were right next to the doors so I...
