I have tried to learn how to crochet and knit and its just a NO GO for me LOL. Believe me I have tried on numerous occasions. So one day, I set out to design a quilt that felt like everything that I loved about that granny square afghan and this is that pattern. I will talk…

Our 2019 Block of the Month Programs are underway!

JUST A BIT OF INFO TODAY We have been getting a lot of questions about our BOM programs lately so thought I would post all the info in one place… If you have been following along on our quilting adventures for a while you will know that over the last few years we have fallen in love with BOMS… otherwise known as BLOCK-OF-THE-MONTH programs. There is something so very satisfying about working on just a few unique blocks each month all year long and then having such a magnificent sampler done at the end. It is a totally addictive process if you ask me! For those of you who participate in those programs, this is all old hat to you. For those of you who have no idea what these programs consist of… here is some info: Some BLOCK OF THE MONTH programs out…

Hello my Friends! I promised a deeper overview and insight into the upcoming CHARCOAL & CREAM MYSTERY BOM FOR 2019 so here we are. Each month you will receive a black [charcoal] and a cream fabric.
