Blues Zig-Zag Crib Quilt (top)
This top is done. I've folded it and set it aside for now. Maybe tomorrow I'll start another top.

Baby quilt continues

Now, however, the ironing board is kept in the craft room (and just the fact that we have a craft room still makes me … Continue reading Baby quilt
