Sunday AM

I’m going to write this quick post before I go to church – it’s another rainy day and my friend Mareen had planned to finish washing my windows today but I can see that’s not going to happen.  She washed the sun porch windows yesterday and is there anything lovelier than clean shiny windows?  I don’t think so.

Heather sent this photo of Black Cat so I promised to post it and make it available for $10.00.

And here are some more #5’s that I’ve received.

Like you, I LOVE seeing these finished projects!  They inspire me to get busy – I have finished the appliqued morning glories but need to add the panel to the quilt and then piece the borders, too.  Not much time left!

Off to play for the Sunday School kids who are learning that old favorite chorus, “Boys and Girls For Jesus” – one of my favorites!

    Good morning,
    I loved seeing the #5 pictures!
    The cute Doxy pup was a bonus! 🙂
    I think I “need” the Black Cat pattern as well as your new book 🙂

    I’m also off to church soon….
    Wishing a good day to all!

    Never have had a desire to buy Halloween fabric BUT that strippy table runner just might change my mind. I do church on the computer….. they call it live streaming and I can sing out loud!!!!!

    Mary,
    Thanks for pictures. Had 4 ads to close. Quilted and bound a Hexie UFO that was on my DDList. Lost my list, but know what UFO projects need to be done!
    Is anyone else doing Temecula Quilt Shop’s DASHING sew along? I cut 48 of the 3 1/2” Churns and sewed my weekly dozen. I’m not planning to sew a big size quilt, but love these small Churns!
    Was 40o up here this early morning of my 80th birthday!

    I purchased the black cat kit several years ago from your shop. I need to find it and get it done, don’t I? Thanks for the inspiration!

    I am making the Flying Geese using the pattern of the #5 shown today. Not finished but almost.

    Hi Mary,
    I just came across your blog. I love your new quilt book even though i have not been a fan of civil war quilt colors before. The quilts are so inviting, you may have brought me to the other side. You are delightful in your blog and telling and showing pictures of the farm life. What a beautiful place you have to enjoy life. The weather is a bit harsh for me as I am from California but your farm and you are charming. I look forward to stumbling again into your blog.

    I love seeing all the beautiful different quilts. Lots of talent out there. Thanks for sharing. Have a great Sunday!

    Ahhh thanks Mary….I happen to love to wash windows and couldn’t.think of anyone I would rather help out with that task!

    Oh how the # 5s are inspiring! Each Frank has his own personal. Stripped Halloween table runners are a winner. What size are the flying geese blocks? That is one BAQ ! I am envisioning that quilt in Kaffees.
    Mary your blog brings so much joy to so many & inspires so many.
    Have a great day.

      That pattern is called Lazy Goose, from Running Doe Quilts. I had to add more rows to make it king size for my sister.

    Hi Mary…hope your time of Music was special with the kids! Happy Birthday Launa-Happy 80! All the finished projects so inspiring to see. On the “flying geese” quilt …do I see deer antlers hanging in the background (ceiling)? Watching football 🏈 here in Texas…

    Today is my 66th birthday, it seems unreal that I’m that age. Well, it is better than the opposite. The Green Bay Packers won their game today as well as the Badgers on Sat. The sun is not out-at least it isn’t 80 degrees and humid, I hope everyone has a wonderful day! Cindy in Wi.

    I have been collecting Halloween fabric for a few years, knowing that someday I would make something for that holiday. After seeing the table runners from Vicki in Seattle, I know exactly what I am going to do. So fun to see what people have done.

    It’s so fun seeing the finished products of your readers. Like our own little show in a blog. Very nice work all of you.
    Today I skipped church and went to see Downton Abbey movie early at the theatre. It is wonderful! I felt like I was in the rooms with the family seeing in on such a large screen before me.

    Today I went to a fair over in Laramie. They had a beautiful quilt show. We saw the llama staging for their parade. I can full understand how you and Reed fell in love with the llamas and alpacas. Those costumes with their hats and flowing scarves, flowers and glitter….my, my, my. Such fun.

    Thank you for offering the Black Cat pattern. You are so good to us. I’m falling behind. I must get started on Frank. Love seeing everyone’s number 5 finished quilts. Inspiring. So many talented quilters.

    “Boys and Girls for Jesus” – I think that song was sung on a children’s radio program every Saturday when I was a kid 🙂
