BULLSEYE ROUNDUP EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!!! 1-19-21

I’ve gotten over 50 emails with pictures of Bullseye quilts! I am blown away! Thank you, thank you, thank you – not only for sending your photos but for making this quilt in the first place. Little did we know this would be so popular! It’s really addictive and like many of you mentioned, you will never be done – all those circles you cut out from behind the back will just keep adding up for more bullseye blocks. Hahaha! I’ve got a whole tub full of pieces.

This time I think I’m going to use use pinks or yellows for my background blocks, not together but one or the other, I haven’t decided.

Connie and I went to Des Moines today to shop at Creekside Quilting and when we arrived at the store the electricity was out. Being desperate fabric shoppers, we got our phones out and shopped by flashlight. It was out for over an hour while we shopped. I have to say that since I’m at home now some of the fabrics I bought were not quite as I imagined them.

Then we were off to Ames to shop and while we were there the weather changed – a shower of sleet with a strong wind happened so we headed for home when the wind gusted to over 50 mph from the northwest and we were driving north. A ground blizzard developed and when we turned off I-35 and headed west, the roads became treacherous. Blowing snow had stuck to the highway making it icy and paired with that strong wind, we crept home at 35 mph.

Whew, we made it and now I will start posting Bullseye photos. Tomorrow I’ll give you a fabric list and your first assignment so that we’ll all be ready to start sewing on February 1.

(I can’t wait to look at my fabric!). But first, here are 10 Bullseye Quilts – thank you to everyone who made this possible!

And here are the other finishes I’ve received:

That’s all for tonight – more Bullseye pictures tomorrow!

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!
