I’ve been enjoying getting back to blogging on a regular basis, and I’ve also noticed an uptick in new followers – so I want to welcome all my new friends. I recently reorganized my blog so it’s easier to see the quilts I’ve made in the past. I decided to create one page where you can view all of the quilts from my current books. (I can’t wait until the fall when I’ll update it again for book 3, but more about that later…)
If you are new around here, please enjoy this bit of quilty eye candy, it’s very image heavy!
