Have you ever made a Churn Dash quilt block? Perhaps in a sampler quilt? It’s an unassuming block that, as a quilting teacher, has great potential as a learning opportunity for quilters of all experience levels.

Hello!! Anybody out there?? Yes, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. Several months in fact. A far longer break than I ever intended, but ya know, life sometimes gets in the way. Let’s get caught up!

Let’s just say it’s been FUN *sarcasm*. What started out as a very simple problem, escalated considerably. I won’t bore you with the exact details. Since mid-November, the server has had numerous failures, some of them full outages, and others just components. I had to make the decision to move to another provider and hire a colleague to manage the new server for me.
