What's New!

     Mix a few birds in with some scrappy baskets of flowers, and you have folk art at its best! Notice how the sweet plaids make the burgundies and blues pop. This quilt would be the perfect accent for any room in your home. Barb used a fat quarter pack of  "At Home,"our latest fabric line with Moda Fabrics. She added yardage of several other prints and the look is fun! I'm always surprised how much I love the blue and red and burgundy leaves. It's nice when they don't all have to be green.
     The appliqué shapes are large and simple, making this a quick and easy project. "A Little Flower" is a 60" square.

     Below is pictured # 5 in our Loose Feather series, For the Birds. The same color palette helps to make sure they go together well. "Sing a Song of Seasons" is at the printer and will be picked up on Monday. Then off to the distributors, and they will be ready for you hopefully by the end of next week. I'm working on # 6 now. I know we have missed a couple of months publishing this series. I've had a couple of delays. 

     Pictured below is one reason for my delay.  My daughter Laura got married earlier this month. Tyson is now our son-in-law and we couldn't be happier!

      The second reason is our dog Corey. He got away from me at the park during one of our walks. He chased a deer and broke his elbow. He had to have surgery and Dave and I have tried to keep him quiet for the last 4 weeks. I just started walking him again for short periods of time. That darn dog!!!

 Until later!

  4. Oh now I see what you did with At Home and it is lovely. A wonderful post with wonderful events. I know a broken puppy elbow is not a wonderful event, but it is wonderful because it was not worse! Happy fall!
