So what do the designers to with the signature blocks? Well, you can turn them into a memory quilt. How awesome! That’s why, when I ran my very first quilt alongRead More →

Scrapbusting Quilts A recent return from a heart-wrenching trip early in December, inspired me to make a “Remembrance” Quilt, not sure what to call it.

Each little purple scrap is 2 inches x 2 inches. With all the measurements, you need to add a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Just measure theRead More →
