Sesen Bonus Quilt {Quilting Plan}

In early February, I finished piecing the Sesen bonus quilt top. I was not sure how I wanted to quilt it, and I had another project I wanted to complete for a friend, so the Sequenced quilt top got set aside for over a month. Over the weekend, I decided it was time to sit down and put some...

Planview {Quilting Plan}

I've made my mind up about how I plan to quilt my lava colorway baby size Planview quilt, and I'm excited to get this one finished up.

I don't know about anyone else, but I was really busy at the end of July. I was really glad at the end of last week when I was able to take a deep breath, start working on writing up a pattern for Mum's Garden, and dive into quilting Sky Full of Stars. I took a quick photo of the...

I have been posting my quilting progress on my Instagram account, and I want to get anyone who does not follow me there up to speed on the quilting fun I have been having.
