Just a block

Our Perth Modern Quilt Guild has been doing block of the months from the Modern Blocks book for a year now. Our last BOM was Diamond Ripples, requested by the lovely Kate… Diamond Ripples – cut all squares at 2 7/8″… Not 2.5, which would be perfect for a Jelly Roll; not 3 which would just be too easy, but … Read More

Wow. On Tuesday last week I ordered fabric. On Monday this week, this arrived. It takes longer to get mail from Queensland sometimes. Dear America, If this is what shutting your government down does, shut it down more often? Thanks.
