Welcome to week 2 of the New Quilt Bloggers 2017. I first read about the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop last year and thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone’s posts.

And what an awesome group of people they are. All of the participating bloggers is invited into a sharing platform called Slack. Where everyone is divided up into our own blogging platform groups. And divided further into smaller critique groups. My Hive is called, the BetterRead More →

In the end I decided on bunnies.Read More →
