WIP Wednesday

I finally got around to starting on the baby quilt for my nephew, who will be born in mid October. There’s nothing like waiting for the last minute.  The theme for his room is going to be Monster’s Inc., so as a starting place for this quilt, I took a trip to Baby’s R’ Us Read More …

When a Sampler Turns Into Something Else
