    Good that Roaslie rescued the Yoyo quilt!👍🏼 By following your blog, I can see the progress of your students with their quilts. The projects are so different. Some I like more than another. Personal taste.🤗

  3. A star a day, what a lovely concept!

  4. Good to see the range of projects and techniques you’re all using – and the rescued quilt is a treat, isn’t it!

    Really like the “Book” that Sue M had her pieces in. Is it made with batting for the leaves?
    The yo-yo quilt is amazing. Will Rosalie applique it onto a backing material? Great post showing everyone’s hard work!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
