This is the last quilt in our quilt series. Finally this is the Winter Quilt I designed for a class. Since there are six blocks which make up this paper quilt I’m going to post the, “What To Do” over two days. I was and so was my house, covered in Dazzling Diamonds and after you get done making this you’ll understand why. These photos are a bit washed out looking and as soon as I can swap them out I will. You can always click on the photos for an enlarged version.
