Unsurprisingly, the Kaleidoscope Block came together quickly for me. Too quickly in fact. If you look toward...

Hanging Sleeve: To Match or Not To Match?

Over the weekend, I began working on the final details I needed to apply to my quilts that will show at QuiltCon: labels, label covers, and hanging sleeves. I have to be honest: I have never really loved making labels or hanging sleeves. Last year, I saw the beautifully made labels by Paige from Quilted Blooms, and I decided that...
