Hello!

Welcome to my blog. This is new, but I'm looking forward to sharing my Quilting adventures and all the things I like here!

Week 1 Roundup

Week 1 Roundup

Well, the first week of The Fussy Cut Sampler QAL2 is almost finished. Iโ€™ve really been blown away by all the talented folks quilting along with me. I want to take this space to showcase some of the amazing work Iโ€™ve been seeing in my Instagram feed. My goal will be to showcase different makers each week! I'll be announcing the weekly prize winner on Monday - so make sure you're following this week's prize sponsor: @pickingdaisiesinslo. Without further ado, let's see some of week 1!

Meet This Week's Makers

 @london_and_granger is working with black and white motifs and adding in pops of color!
