Throwback Thursday this week takes us back to the Fourth of July in 2011. I’d been doing Superior Threads‘ Superior University and had a nice pile of Glitter threads to play with so . . .
I broke with convention for this week’s journal quilt of June 23 – 29, 2011, and made a much bigger, wall-hanging sized quilt. I made the quilt the week of my birthday and wanted to have 36 candles around the border, but didn’t want to have to piece tiny, tiny ones. (And, yes, if you’ve […]
