Pin It I was gone all weekend and missed that today is the start of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Linky party. This is always fun and a great way to visit new blogs.

If this is your first time here, welcome and I hope you will come back. I am always showing a new quilt or project that I am working on and have tutorials that I share.
