The first Friday of each month in 2013!


  1. OOooo can't wait to see what designs others come up with!

    1. I know! I'm excited to see that too - I'm torn between expanding the size of the quilt and keeping it small so I can hang it easily. Extra patterns would be a great way to get the size up to bed or at least a roomy lap size.

  2. Oh, I love this design! Great job Kristel!
