Sneak peek (and only a partial one at that!)
I just got a queen-sized quilt off Millie Faye; but it is a challenge quilt....in fact...it is a dual challenge quilt.

The big reveal will be mid June on the top, so stay tuned.

I am hoping to learn lots from Karen and then "custom quilting, here I come!!!".
I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
