W.I.P. Wednesday {12.24.14}

I’m back this week with another W.I.P. Wednesday.  After setting aside my first batch of Farmer’s Wife blocks, I pulled out my Swoon quilt that was started in early fall.  I had 5 blocks done and I want to make a total of 12 so that it fits nicely on our king sized bed. Here is … Continue reading
