Review of the week


I can’t wait! 

I can’t wait for Friday mornings! I get in my car, on the way to teach my kindergarteners and listen to Elizabeth. I’ve been quilting since my college day, and I’m turning 50 in a few months. I’ve been inspired to up my game and figure out how to use the tools I already have, like EQB and Canva to make my patterns. I took the 9 week quilting class, and I’m retaking it now that I’m not under the stress of back to school season. I can’t wait to start writing patterns to sell!
