Erik's Mystery Quilt Patterns








































From the Back Porch

  • It's been HOT here in NW Ohio! The corn looks good, but we could use just a little rain...planning our September vacation and checking the market for the late summer produce; nothing beats a home-grown tomato sandwich on toast!! --Erik

Erik's Tip

  • Fill lots of bobbins with the color you use the most, at one time, like I do! Keep them within easy reach! That way, when you need one, it will already be on deck!
