Posted by KJCB on August 31, 2017
My Quilting Adventure continues on the RQ Blog! I have had a few weeks where I have struggled to find my "quilting mojo" and am now behind in my challenge; however, I will persevere! I finished two quilt tops on Wednesday and have posted about them as week 37 and 38 on the RQ Blog. Head over there to tell me what you think! There is much happening in this week's newsletter so make sure to read all the way through! On to the news...
