I just had to makeContinue reading “Friday Finish”

Hidden Treasures

This pattern was designed to combine 2 of my favourite things; scraps and a funky, fun focal fabric.

So here it is: the first of my three quilts for the golf course fundraiser. It was too much fun to just walk out my front door and take a picture of the quilt on one of the Course picnic tables. I had no way to hang the quilt so I thought this would workContinue reading “May OMG Finish”
