It’s finally raining! Now the grass will turn green and grow and the goose poop by the barn will be washed into the grass. Hazel braved the rain as soon as we got up and ran for the barn – she got rat #14 the other day! I know there’s a #15 because I saw it. Someone called her The Terminator – she is definitely earning her keep these days.
Here is the progress on my March Madness quilt.
I’m hoping to get to the long arm machine today – the smaller projects are piling up waiting to be quilted.
Where are all the reader quilts?
Here’s a small quilt I recently finished – the bed size original quilt was called Autumn Nights but I had the animal fabric that I wanted to use so I reduced the size.
Here’s a closeup of the animal fabric that I’ve had for years and still love it.
Now please don’t ask me where to buy this fabric – I’ve had it for over 20 years unused. Pick a fabric you love to use in these blank blocks and then choose coordinates to use in the triangle square blocks. And when you’re finished send us a picture of your quilt!
Did any of you make a wool pincushion?
Both Connie and I are slowly but surely getting things marked for the sale on April 1-2. It’s so much work! I have a whole bench full of glass containers that look so nice all lined up but they’re going on the sale. First they all need to be washed and shined up and made pretty for a buyer! That bench could hold books instead.
I have two more older Country Threads quilts that are headed to the long arm. These old patterns remade in today’s newer lighter color palette are a breath of fresh air for me. I am loving the old patterns once again – they were never bad quilts, just outdated fabrics. One by one I will get a few of the hundreds of past Country Threads quilts remade. Stay tuned.
Rick’s ankle wound is looking a bit better – it definitely is not as deep as it was and even the redness around the wound has improved. We are returning to Rochester this Thursday. Just point the car – it knows the way!
