My name is Karla and I confess… I was about to throw in the fat-quarter…I actually did toss the fabric out in front of me, about to discard my whole idea…and that’s when the magic happened…Image of Karla Kiefner

​The latest ride on my very curvy quilting journey started by accident as I discovered the nuances of value in using both sides of fabric. This started the #usebothsides quilt patterns a short time ago.  More than 31 patterns later and tons of ideas in my head, I’m having more fun than a quilter should be allowed!
