Tips and Tutorials

Aha! Moments

In January 2014 I decided to write several posts about revelations in my quilting journey.  These are "Aha!" moments, tips, or methods I figured out, or learned in a class, from a TV show (back in the days of HGTV's "Simply Quilts" with Alex Anderson), or from a book.  The important thing is that these methods, tips or tricks changed my quilting life!  Click on a title and it will take you to the post.
