July brings us sunshine and beautiful Show and Tell quilts are blooming!


July also brought us Suzi Parron, author or Barn Quilting and Following the Barn Quilt Trail.  Suzi took us on a wonderful journey across the US introducing us to the magical Barn Quilts in our land.  I know that I'm excited to take a trip and see some of these fun pieces of art and learn more about their stories.
