I’ve had this little quilt done for a bit, but the weather has been too dreadful for photos. But, thanks to a lovely Sunday afternoon, and the hubs taking the tiny human with him on errands, I was finally able to get a few photos of this fun finish. This quilt uses my Baby Communique…

This week’s #OurProject52 is all about blue. It’s probably really weird of me, but the very first thing I think of when I hear the word blue is the song “Shpadoinkle Day” from Cannibal: the Musical. The sky is blue and all the leaves are green. The sun’s as warm as a baked potato. I…

Dear Jane, I fell in love with your quilt the first time I saw it… of course, I would never make one.  I haven’t the patience to make 225 of those 4.5 inch squares.  But I do love your quilt.  Of course, I’ve always loved “scrappy” quilts made with remnants of past projects.  That’s probably…
