Photos Wanted, 1-18-2021

Have you made a Bullseye quilt? Would you take a picture of your quilt and send it to my email? I’ve been thinking about the fabric requirements and for those who have never made this quilt, seeing some finished quilts might give them some ideas of what they want to choose for colors.

I am going to try a different background this time – just for fun!

Help me encourage others to join in this Bullseye quilt along – let’s have a Bullseye quilt show first. The pattern is in the webstore or can be purchased from me for $12, including shipping. Send check or cash to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA 50438.

Here’s the original quilt again.

Cold Sunday, 1-17-21

I’m home from early church already and am planning on getting some binding done today while I watch some games. But first let’s have a quilt show!

Remember, if you have questions about these projects, ask in a comment. If YOU have a project shown, continue to check the comments for questions about your project and answer them there. I am unable to answer specific questions.

And here’s a reminder of this time of year – Wear Warm Clothes! We will get this pattern to Kayla to put in our store. In the meantime we can copy it all and mail it for $32 – it will be sent Priority Mail which costs $7.75. It will be priced at $25.00 in the online store. This quilt was first shown in our book by the same name “Wear Warm Clothes” and then remade and marketed as a block of the month quilt. We believe this quilt and Bullseye are our two most popular quilts of all time.

It hangs in the east porch area.

And here’s an antique pie safe in the piano room filled with “white” things! Another picture for you to study – haha!

I have many collections and will post photos now and then – just for fun!

And now a change of clothes and another cup of coffee – Happy Sunday!

Here’s a picture of the pottery on the shelves above my bed – most of it, maybe all of it, is vintage McCoy.

This picture is my favorite antique possession – a woman in a boat looking into the distance longingly and her dog is looking back at her wondering why she isn’t thinking more about him. So sweet! I bought this in an antique mall in Monticello, Iowa years ago. I paid $99 for it and am so glad I did. I look at it every single night and just love it!

After posting this picture of the original Bullseye quilt and getting lots of comments about a sew along, I am happy to announce that we’ll do it again. We will start February 1 – more details to come here on the blog.

So Tony came and fixed the longarm machine today and I quilted the Noah’s Ark quilt and remember this quilt? The blue animal fabric? Got that quilted, too. Now binding on both.

Oh, don’t you just love finishing projects?
