Face the Year! As we start this New Year under challenging conditions we will take a YouTube look at quilter Freddie Moran’s quilts. Last year, she challenged herself to create a new “face quilt” every day until she was ready to “Face the Year.” And that was before the pandemic! Take the challenge! Will you make even one? Remember, “Attitude is everything, so pick a good one.” (Wayne Dyer)
