2015 has come and gone. A year of finishes and a year of firsts. Looking back through my gallery of finishes for the year as I prepared this post, has also prompted me to reflect on all the changes that have been a part of things here at Sew Fresh Quilts during the last 12 […]

Posted on: May 11th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Sometimes one thing just leads to another.  You are in the middle of making a quilt.  And throughout that process, your thoughts lead you to develop a new idea.
