I’ve been looking forward to writing this post, but now that it’s here, I’m finding myself a little reticent. I guess I’ll start with the lede and follow with the story. I’m moving from Santa Cruz, CA to Washington, DC! (Well technically, Maryland.) Things have been a little quiet lately […]

The Macaron Quilt 36
Story time! Last March, I made a QDAD (quilt design a day) that I really liked based on a photo of some macarons (the French confection, not the coconut macaroons). So I broke out my Oakshotts and low volumes and started strip piecing. After making 120 ‘macarons’ I had enough […]
