Every so often questions and comments come from readers that I think others would like to hear my response to. That’s when I feature them on the blog. This is one of those days.

Oh my…It looks like I might need a second pair!!

Has anyone made this quilt? Does anyone have the instructions? They seem to be completely lost from the internet so sharing doesn’t seem wrong to me. Leave a comment in the comments section if you can help Gloria locate the pattern.
The next question is about…. Continue reading
