So I had the changing of the quilts! Yes - I do have quilts out for the summer, as I get cold!! If it's under 70 - I am cold ... so there ;-) Plus I love Quilts!! So I put away the patriotic quilts, and the little quilt that Grandma made me when I was a baby - just a few years ago ( no comment!!)
So now I have my cowboy quilt laying over one couch. I made this a few years ago, and when I had it all layed out on the floor, I had a visitor. She could not fathom why I was making this quilt - when I had no intended recipient.
I should probably call her and tell her I was the recipient - although I didn't know it would be me at the time!!
And my glow in the dark Halloween one... Middle bit got dragged to a quilt show with me a lot of years ago ( probably before I was even born - tee hee) and he saw these fabrics. Once the saleslady told him they glowed in the dark - he was relentless. and that is how my stash was born ( right??)
This one was a group quilt. four of us made different blocks, exchanged them, and set them. All four of us entered the same quilt show and we won a group prize. I chose a sewing machine roller cart deally. Some day I should go take pictures of the others's quilts - it was fun!
This one - hanging here on my art rack was made by my friend Pat - she loves me. And she really really needed to give me this - cuz I pestered her, and bothered her, and poked her, and ...well you get the point - that relentlessness came from some where!! ( poor middle bit)
And last, but not least - my bed. This one was made by my friend Denise, and quilted by me. We made a trade - I got the better end of the deal! She pieced the top for me, I quilted some quilts for her. I think her quilts were gifts, mine... not so much!!!
The pattern was based on a picture in the book "The Quilt that Walked to Golden" bu Sandra Dallas. My mom bought me that book for Christmas one year, and I just fell in love with the picture of this quilt. Of course, the picture was in Black and White.....
And this is not a changing of the quilts - but proof that I get up every morning!! This was the sunrise two days ago - and I saw THE. WHOLE. THANG!!! It was gorgeous !
Now they tell us snow is coming.
we want the snow - but not till Sunday please...
Being as we had a drought all summer, the last cutting on the hay field was yesterday - and we want it to stay dry enough to bale today and Friday and get it all covered Friday and Saturday... So wish us luck okay?
Cuz - we kind of need that hay to make it through the winter.... *sigh*
Have a great day!!
