Quilt 335 of The 70273 Project

Some of the first people I heard from when I launched The 70273 Project were Kim Monins and Gisele Therezein, two creative, talented, dynamo women who immediately stepped up and put Jersey, Channel Islands U.K. on The 70273 Project map.

If you’ve been thinking about making a Middling, this is a good time to get started. If you’ve been meaning to get that Middling finished, this […]

Week 52 (2/6-12/2017) Recap

And here we are, 52 weeks . . . one year . . . after we started. What a year it has been and what a week it’s been. Without any planning or cajoling on my part, our week 52, my friends, turns out to be the grandmother of all weeks. That’s the way the […]
