    I love the text fabrics. At some point I plan to make a quilt that’s “Sh** My Daughter Says.” She’s hysterically funny on FB. I know it would make a good wall hanging.

  89. 564

  100. 623

    Cynthia Kullberg says

    This is the first quilting blog I’ve read and such fun. I love the newer ideas, the scary and creative “wonky” blocks. I can see that sharing these ideas is truly inspiring for a more traditional quilter. Quilting is like “dessert” for me and I often think I have to have all my other work done before I sit and sew. I think I’ll justify more time at my machine. I hope you approve!
