  11. I hope it's ok if I say there isn't any new quilt related skills I want to learn. NO! I'm not perfect and know them all already, trust me. LOL What I want for this year it to improve on what I have learned to date since I began quilting a couple of years ago. If I add more to what I have a struggle with already then I will just frustrate myself. Does that make sense, I hope?

    That fabric is just beautiful. Thank you for the chance.
