Desire To Inspire - Early February Edition, Part 1

We have double the fun post this month for the Desire To Inspire Challenge. Two friends, Denise Mitchell and Debbie Rogowski were on our Facebook page and we thought it would be interesting to have a challenge between two friends. We sent them bundles of Flannel Essentials by The Buggy Barn and let them work on their own designs without seeing each other's progress.

The projects came together nicely and it was interesting to see how each one stepped up to the challenge. Today we'll start with Denise. Come back tomorrow to see Debbie's quilt.
