Erik's Mystery Quilt Patterns

From the Back Porch

  • We sure have been enjoying the cooler weather, but now it's been rainy and we got the good old-fashioned Midwestern heat! Twilight brings the fireflies, who are always a welcomed sight; lots of them to light up spot near the lilac bush. Designing a new quilt, eating fresh peaches and sure is good! --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!
