February Villa Rosa Club!

Welcome to February! We are excited to announce this month's Villa Rosa Club Kit called PINCH ME!  So why a St. Patrick's day themed kit in February - didn't you want to do something that was related to Valentine's Day??  Why that is a great question!  However, quilters need a minute to put together a project, get it quilted and bound.  It just doesn't happen overnight - right!  So that is the reason for a St. Patrick's Day Themed Project.    What is a Villa Rosa Project? Great question.  Villa Rosa is a pattern company that specializes in super simple, super easy...

Goals.  Let's set some good ones!

Personally, I like to have goals.  I find that if I have a goal , then I can break down the steps so that goal while it may be lofty can be easily completed.  Also, with a goal you can be held accountable.  For me accountability is key.  If I have someone holding me accountable than I am more likely to succeed.   Same is true for quilting.  I have some goals for my quilting journey in 2022.  Here are my quilty goals for 2022: I want to finally learn how to do a Mariner's Compass using the Robin Ruth tools.  I...
