MY FIRST EVER PAYING CUSTOMER

I have a client at our office that asked me months ago about making her a t-shirt quilt. Then she ended up bringing me around 50 shirts so I had to pick 12 to use. I'm not fond of t-shirt quilts as I feel they simply take too much time for the outcome. Show More Summary

FINALLY QUILT PICTURES

I'M STILL HERE

Wonder Clips vs. Binding Clips

This may be blasphemous to say in the quilting world…  and I’m certain I am in the crazy minority…  but I am not a big fan of the Wonder Clips.  They are all the rage right now. Let me explain myself and you can judge me if you like.  See how the red half of […]
