2014 – Year in Review

2014 – Year in Review
January 1, 2015 nicole

Hi friends, whew… can you believe it is 2015 already? I have compiled a list of all of the fun projects created in 2014, thank you to everyone for your support on this last year of creativity. It was a busy one participating in several design groups, that really challenged me to sew sew sew! This year I am looking forward to taking a more professional approach with two new quilting patterns that I will be releasing in the first quarter, a quilt along with a favorite pattern and fabric and some more exciting news that I cannot wait to share! (Most are tutorials so just click on the image and it will take you directly to the project page.)
