Did you know that 2010 was our first year blogging? That might explain why we've spent a few days recalling some of our most popular themes. This is our last "recap" post, before we start a fabulous New Year of inspiration (tomorrow !)
In 2010 we did a series called "Our Town", featuring quilts with schoolhouses, homes, and entire villages. Methods of construction ranged from log cabin to stained glass, traditional and foundation piecing, and appliqué. As a Realtor would say: We hope you see some houses you like !
