When we finally DID get to the quilt show, we had a great time. We both took lots of pictures and I’ll show some of mine to you. It’s been so long since I attended a quilt show! I was always working on Saturday and was too tired on Sunday!
Rosemary’s Bullseye – love the black backgrounds.
This antique quilt was made entirely of fair ribbons.
This sweet little quilt by Cheryl N. Has embroidered centers surrounded by 30’s fabrics.
This entry is a Country Threads pattern.
I believe this is called Flags of the American Revolution and I honestly think I made this quilt OR maybe I just thought about it. I’m going to look in my quilt closet.
Cheryl Barkema used to work for us and she loved fall anything. After she passed away a friend finished this quilt for her.
Miscellaneous quilts we both liked.
Here is Cheryl N. with one of her quilts.
This is a Bonnie Hunter quilt pattern high I also have made – mine is red and brown. Love it!
This was one of our patterns many years ago called the Free quilt because it’s denim from old jeans and scrap squares around each denim square which we all have loads of.
I should make this again!
I never got a picture of Reed! We just didn’t have enough time there at the show. Reed bought some fat quarters and I bought this old pattern.
Hahaha! Remember when we were trying to find this old pieced block and had to redraft it? Now I’ve got a pattern for our files. Sweet!
Reed and I talked about joining this quilt guild – they meet on the first Thursday of each month and I think he’d enjoy seeing show and tell and speakers and quilt activities.
Several asked what patterns are currently available. Here they are:
Spring Gameboard – $5.00
Harvey – both sizes – $10.00
Little Harvey only – $5.00
Bullseye is still available – $3.00
Two issues plus misc. of Goat Gazette – $12.00
Beyond The Battlefield. – $31.00
All of these offers include postage. Checks should be made out to Country Threads. Cobblestone is no longer available – it ended 6 months ago. We simply can’t keep a quantity of patterns available. Harvey for example will be dropped on Easter Sunday and we’ll present something new for you to consider. We can see that it makes a huge difference when we limit what’s available – Quilters get their new patterns done! Patterns don’t pile up because we all concentrate on a few at a time. I’m anxious to introduce the next door banner.
I’ve mentioned before that I enjoy laying out fabrics and just thinking about what I should make. When we first got acquainted and started talking about a pattern company, we knew there were others out there, like us, who enjoyed studying books and patterns and simply thinking about and planning different projects. There is no way any of us could actually make all the projects we wanted to but that’s OK in my book. I so enjoy collecting books and patterns and just thinking about the quilts I could make. I no longer have any guilt about it. Take a lesson from Connie and me!
Debbie’s 85 year old mother made this Bullseye quilt several years ago.
Here is Buckwheat, Alfalfa’s twin, looking quite lost without his brother. I cannot find any records that tell me how old they are but I think about 12-14 years which is pretty old for a Goat.
I am starting the raking this afternoon and have a fundraiser supper to attend tonight with Becky. As soon as I hear from Connie on the cruise, I’ll let you know. Here’s our temp today – just lovely outside!
And then there were 7 in the herd west of the barn.
As we were in the barn treating Alfalfa Hazel jumped up on Dr. Stock’s lap. I wouldn’t call her shy, would you?
Doesn’t she look like a perfect angel?
The games last night were so good! I didn’t really have a favorite in the first game but I do think Auburn was cheated out of the win because the double dribble was not called. For those who were watching, you know what I’m referring to.
