Red and White Logs 76, 77, 78, 79 and 80

Curved Cornerstones + 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25

Love playing with this little blocks running all over the place! It is a bit like adding quilting lines before adding the wadding and backing fabric. Sometimes the most effective way to use the lines of little squares is to … Continue reading
