Block 8 in the free Block of the Month "Apples of Gold" quilt is now available.
It's hard to believe we are already on to the last row of our quilt! I hope there are many wise words spoken into your lives, and in turn, that you can bless others with their many benefits.
The pattern is available for download here.
