  • Quilt Fix

    Quilt Fix

    Oh oh… I made a mistake and now need a quilt fix! In this case, it was more of an accident, but something I could have avoided. When I was getting ready to quilt, I noticed this big red smudge on my quilt – it’s from the very old quilting gloves I was using. Some […]
