A bit more progress

All of the blocks that will be appliqued are pieced. More circles are turned under, the back row is the work yet to be done. I've auditioned the first three circles on a block to see how I want to lay out colors. Since this uses every fabric in… Continue

Meet Jenni!

Stop by Jenni's page and get to know her and her adorable dog, Pasquale! Jenni is our newest fabric designer, but she does so much more than that. She's quite talented and also styles all of our photography for web and catalog...believe me, that's quite a job!
