A while back, a friend gave me a bag of scrap fabric. Miss ME and I pieced together a jelly roll quilt top from that. Miss ME was a big help!

A great pattern for a new knitter, not complicated but more advanced than straight garter stitch. I liked working with the Red Heart With Love Stripes yarn. I used approximately 1.5 skeins. … Continue reading Debut
