Connie just finished this red and white quilt and it is beautiful! Our old pattern, Wild Rice, has a whole new look just in time for Christmas decorating. This should be called Wild Rice Reincarnated! Haha! I just love it – I even hung several red and white quilts yesterday after I took down the fall quilts with the pumpkins and colorful leaves. My pumpkins have been thrown out in the grove for the wild life this winter. Here is Wild Rice!
You can order a paper pattern of Wild Rice for $5 and a SASE paid in cash or check sent to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA 50438. It is not available as a pdf download. Checks should be made out to Country Threads.
As I look at this Wild Rice block I think one block would even be nice in the center of a table with something decorative in the middle – like a candle? Often my time doesn’t allow me to make 9 blocks but I can manage one. I’ll bet it’s the same with you.
These little goats remind me of the YouTube video of the baby goats in pajamas running through the barn – it is soooo cute!
Believe it or not, these are all Christmas fabrics.
I think I’m caught up with reader quilts but if I have missed yours, please let me know.
Betty Klosterman – are you reading this blog post? I’m not able to reach you by email and a reader noticed that we haven’t heard much from you lately.
So many of you have written to tell me you liked the goat picture. Thank you! Quite a few years ago I used another goat picture, probably my favorite, as my Christmas card because it almost looked like a manger scene with a baby lying in the straw with heavenly light focused on the baby. Here it is – this is Sylvia with her baby Flo Darlene.
Isn’t it just about perfect?
