Anna’s Hardest Quilt – The Star of Bethlehem

Focus Through the Prism Challenge Review

For the last seven months, I’ve created a 20″ mini quilt each month.  Those quilts were all part of the Focus Through the Prism Challenge over at Project Quilting.

I’m very excited to share my latest finish with all of you! A brand new king size bed quilt!  I finished piecing the top ages ago, but it just recently made it’s trip to the long arm quilter. I got it back in July, just before our move, so I didn’t get around to binding Read More …

Secret Squirrel Mini Quilt

This month’s Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge theme was the 9-patch block.  For my version of the challenge, I created a simple 9-patch design using orange fabrics.
