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. I’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 I’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!
