Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish {2018-10-25}

Way back in the day, I mean summer, I joined a mystery QAL hosted and designed by Meadow Mist Designs. I stayed up on the QAL through the months, though I surprise myself with every finish at how long it takes to actually get the quilt over the finish line.  Once the flimsy is finished, … Continue reading Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish {2018-10-25}

Last year she hosted the Summer Snowflake Shimmer QAL which was a fun project resulting in a very generous sized quilt for our … Continue reading Wayward Transparency QAL
