3 Things

On the Sew, Mama, Sew blog, they are featuring guest designer and author of The Practical Guide to Patchwork, Elizabeth Hartman.  As part of the interview, they asked her some questions and it was fun to read her answers.  I thought I'd answer the questions here - feel free to use them on your blog too!

I didn't know that I would love quilting so very much but after making the second one as a gift, I really am excited to do more!  My friend, Lisa, is a great inspiration and the array of colors and patterns available to work with makes me so very happy.  If you haven't dived into quilting or sewing, I highly recommend it!

    I love so many of the Moda fabrics too - I used them for Helayna's cape and crown. :) Such a fun list!
