Those Crazy Cats

Posted on October 30, 2010 by sonjabarrie

I just did a workshop at one of my quilt guilds, Flying Geese. It was a short 3 hour lesson on how to make a quilt called Those Crazy Cats by Buggy Barn. I just thought it was so cool I took some photos to show you.  No this is NOT the one I made, […]

I did it in one day!

My back didn't appreciate it but I drove straight through!  I usually don't manage to get the car packed and on the road until mid afternoon which means an overnight stop at the halfway point: Virgin River Hotel in Mesquite.
