A Happy New Year readers! Here it is 2019 already, last year just flew by with all that happened and probably the best was the addition to my family, a new little baby granddaughter. Today I thought I would take a look back and see what progress was made in my quilting world for 2018.
In the first part of this blog post I looked back on all the patterns published on my website for 2018, but a number of other things were published too.
I'm forever being asked how I make tabs for the back of my quilts (I make these instead of quilt sleeves for hanging) so I decided that it is probably best I write my instructions in a PDF. That way I can just send them directly to anyone who asks. If you'd like a copy, just fill out the form below and I'll send it to you too.

We have finally, after such a long time, launched our new website at Arbee Designs. It is definitely more modern now and mobile friendly plus has a lot of new features.
Today is Worldwide Quilting Day and I just shared my latest quilt on Hoffman Fabrics FB page. Check it out!

Easter is coming soon so I decided to get my display ready early. My Easter Treats table runner makes the perfect table setting. All I need is a decorative bowl for those Easter Eggs! A quick and easy Easter idea.
I had someone just contact me... "Hey, what's the scoop? Anything exciting going on?". My reply was "Yes! I'm learning how to make my first app - so exciting to learn new stuff"....
