Cascade blog tour and giveaway





It's time for something totally fun!!

A few months ago, Jessica Levitt emailed me to ask if I would be willing to sew up the Itty Bitty basket out of her new fabric line Cascade, debuting at quilt market! How cool is that? Of course I said yes without hesitation!
