Kids Quilting

Yesterday, I finished cleaning out a closet that had all of the projects and papers from when my kids were in elementary and middle school. Given one of them has graduated from college, it was a good time to purge. I couldn’t part with all of it and kept items from each grade. So their […]

Guest Post – Jenny Satterthwait

I have been a ‘traditional’ quilter since 1995 when I took my first class. We lived in Aiken, SC, at the time and so I attended the NC Quilt Symposium for several years and loved being exposed to all the wonderful quilters that came there to teach. Fast forward to August 2016 when we were […]
