Monday Musings: Let’s Be Colorful

Over the weekend I posted this photo on facebook of me "shopping" for paint chips to consider for our reconstruction with the caption "think we will go neutral."  I'm cracking up at all the responses! Everything from "Egads!" to "they all look like you." Yep, this gal loves color! I'm going to keep you guessing… Continue reading Monday Musings: Let’s Be Colorful

Modern Quilt Island Batik Challenge Part 1

Modern Quilt In The Making May's Island Batik challenge is to make a modern quilt. Well....that's a challenge!

For example, I love to… Continue reading Modern Quilt Island Batik Challenge Part 1
