Made the local paper with a piece about Ruby's Christmas Quilt

Posted by Virginia "Ginnie" Leiner on January 13, 2018 at 9:34pm 0 Comments

So I will go shopping for some more of my fabrics and make a rather plain nine patch but will add perhaps several blocks of the smaller cushions in the centre and finish off with a rather plain quilt so their is some…
