One blog that I've admired for a long time is Crazy Mom Quilts. It's mostly (like 98%) about quilting and Amanda Jean's style is just my flavor.

Now before you get too excited, just know that...I didn't really get that much done. I know, I know, … Continue reading WIP Wednesday: La Passa Progress

Truthfully 🙂 **Long Post Warning: scroll through if you just want to see the pics:) I first saw the La Passacaglia quilt on Pinterest and I totally fell in love … Continue reading La Passacaglia: My Sewing Project
