    I have so enjoyed the last five days visiting the blogs of the contributors to the Best Modern Quilts 2014 magazine. Thank you Quilter’s Newsletter for providing such a wonderful tour with lots of giveaways. The one quilt today really does look like a super filled campground. I am imagining such a situation as I gaze out upon several feet of snow with more on its way. Spring and summer are not really that far away.
