Results-Q2 in the Finish a Long 

The linky party is open, which of course means it’s time to squeeze in a last-minute finish! Or not. I pulled out my Christmas placemats but it’s not looking promising for a finish.

Modern Butterfly quilt – TGIFF

Welcome to TGIFF for May 12, 2017! Today I am sharing what is my oldest work-in-progress no longer. Thanks so much to the Carmine group, Simply Solids bee.

Pinwheels Star Quilt is Done

I have been working every day on this quilt, to get it done in time to enter in the Modern Quilt Guild fabric challenge. And I finished it, by the skin of my teeth. And it’s fabulous, if I do say so myself! Some of the characteristics of modern quilting — use of grey as […]
