April Color Challenge

Happy Easter for those that celebrate!  In my household we enjoy today as a family celebration, and an excuse to eat a lot of ham and chocolate, although not at the same time.

Long Time in Blue

I'm using Alison Glass fabrics, and the patterns are from my Quilter's Planner.  They are all different techniques, and sometimes I forget to reset my seam allowance to make it a scant … Continue reading 52 Weeks with The Quilter’s Planner – 6
