Works in Progress

The new year has started off pretty well for me, at least as far as my quilting goes. I finished Rayden’s baby quilt. I’m almost done with the 1st Project Quilting Challenge. I just need to add my binding to it. And with the help of my MIL, I finally got the impromptu quilt basted. Read More …

Crazy Quilting

In the last week, with the cold weather moving in, I’ve been avoiding my sewing space. It’s in the basement, and it’s awfully cold down there.
