My name is Karla and I confess... I was about to throw in the fat-quarter...I actually did toss the focus fabric out in front of me, about to discard my whole idea...and that's when the magic happened...

The latest ride on my quilting journey started quite by accident as I discovered the nuances of value in using both sides of fabric. This started the #usebothsides quilt patterns just a short time ago (June 2017).  More than 23 patterns later and tons of ideas in my head, I'm having more fun than a quilter should be allowed!

Most importantly, turn that fabric over and #usebothsides!
