Tim planted the field of corn across the road today – we’ll watch it come up and grow and then watch it being harvested.
Planting 16 rows at a time makes short work of planting – maybe 2-3 hours.
More great quilts to look at today!
This bullseye quilt was made by a Garner gal who explained how she did it. She used denim as her background square and after quartering her completed blocks and resewing 4 quarters together, she layered each block with batting and brushed cotton on the back. Then she quilted each bullseye block on her home machine.
When she sewed the quilted blocks together, she left the ragged seam allowance to the back side of the quilt. I wish we could see the back. Nice job, Rosemary W.!
And here’s another bullseye quilt that I personally think is the sweetest one I’ve ever seen. Some day I’m going to make another bullseye quilt!
I recently passed on my collection of blue antique bowls to a cousin who graciously sent me pictures of my, now her, blue bowls. Feels good to know they have a new home with someone who also loves them.
Slowly but surely I will find new homes for my collections – the dog pictures, the white pitchers and the white planters will be last to go.
Betty B. asked me to talk about my knee replacements – do not wait to have this surgery, Betty! I have no more knee pain which is priceless. The one downside is not being able to kneel anymore making gardening especially hard. That’s why they make knee pads. Therapy was a chore but worth it because I had both knees done two months apart. This spring I am in such better shape than last spring following the surgery in the winter.
Here’s another sweet baby quilt.
