So, does anyone else try out a pattern or new technique and then want to do a bunch of those things until you're sick of them? That happens to me a LOT. I recently got into personalizing things with names. Now, I've decided that to properly create letters that look... Continue reading

I decided to make a quilt that I've been wanting to make for a really long time. It's called a "Less Than Traditional" quilt or more commonly called "Cathedral Windows". Basically, you make a whole bunch of circles and once they're assembled the quilt is done. Here is my box... Continue reading

Help! I really like how you integrated your Etsy link in between your banner and your post. Any special directions for doing this?
