Finally it’s done! I think winter’s arrival caught us by such surprise that every day there’s something else to do in the barn. Today is the reveal!
Can you tell how windy it is outside today? Finally I got a straight shot.
Do you like it? I really do. I used a Country Threads pattern called Opposites Attract which told the whole story of combining batiks with plaids. All the plaids were shirts. Here’s a couple closeups.
I always like to keep a quilt on my sunroom table – it’s always covered with cat hair, too, so guess I’m not the only one who likes it.
Here is the star block.
You may use this to make your own Opposites Attract quilt. If you would prefer to order a complete paper pattern, you may send $3.00 to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA 50438. This includes shipping but it’s really helpful if you send us an address label. I will post this info again tomorrow and again after Thanksgiving in case you’ve missed this post.
Remember how tidy my sewing table was a few weeks ago? Here it is today – working with the scraps from this quilt in a small improv quilt. I always have such good intentions to keep it tidy – haha!
I thought you might like to see my basement “greenhouse”. My friend, Jane, just sent me some more “starts” and she is so considerate when she packages them. She warns me if it’s a prickly cactus.
See what I mean?
And around the corner.
Honestly it’s a sickness just like hoarding fabric. There’s lots more but I didn’t want to scare you.
Oh maybe just a couple more.
This is the main area but I have another double light over the workbench. I’ll save that for another time.
So ……. you can use the star pattern measurements that I posted OR you can order the pattern for $3.00,your choice.
I’m making bean soup from last week’s ham bone – smells delicious!
And this is off the subject but I would like to sell my leather couch for $40. It’s perfectly good but I’m sick of it and it’s too deep for me to sit comfortably – my feet don’t even reach the floor! It is also scratched by the cats but would be OK for a workshop or a basement. Just thought I’d throw it in for someone local.
