I was basing this assumption on how quickly the hotel rooms sold out for the event earlier this year (a whole year in advance!). With that in mind, I carefully...

Throwback Thursday – College Rainbow Quilt

I was leafing through some old photo albums this morning when I found a photograph of a quilt I made in college. It was the first quilt I made using my first sewing machine - a Viking / Husqvarna Freesia 415 that I used until last year. I chose to tie this quilt, and it seemed to hold up...
