Round Robin

Sum Fun Lynx

Posted on May 16, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in Inspiration, Quilt-Alongs & Bees

I’ve been seeing so many cute things that look like they’d be fun online lately. It’s all I can do not to start some of them! So, I thought I’d share them with you, and just live vicariously through watching other people do them, until I get my own mess a bit more under control. […]

Hospital Sketches

Well, I caved and started a new quilt. What’s more, I talked my sister into doing it, too! She’s my partner in crime for most of my quilting activities — how could she say no? But when you see it, you’ll stop wondering why I gave in. It’s a new Quilt-Along by Barbara Brackman, hosted […]
