Happy Father's Day

Pin It
Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's 
To those who are with us and to those in our hearts.


My Father left us in 1997 after his fight with colon cancer. This is the quilt I hand quilted sitting in the hospital. 
I didn't have anything else pieced to quilt, so I just kept quilting. 


It's hanging in my sewing room and think of him when I see it.

After all these years, I still feel him with me, I can hear his voice and when I get on a ladder to do a project, I hear, "Two hands, do it once and do it right."

I'm alright Dad, Thanks for everything !

No Clothes Line !

Pin It
After the beach and all the sand, the quilts needed to be washed, the beach.

And, there is no clothes line here, just like in Nebraska


So, off to the washer and on the chairs




They didn't dry all the way, I put them over the chairs for the night.
The next morning,
it looks like they are having a quilt meeting !


All done and pretty

Barn Quilt on the Fence, Done

Pin It
The Wall is Finished 
3rd Block

We are really enjoying them 


Used 1/4" plywood, sanded just a bit, (I like seeing the texture of the wood) they measure 26" x 26", real barn quilts are huge. 
We taped off the size we liked on the fence before deciding, you will be surprised
how big it will need to be.

I'm using acrylic paints, a black paint marker to outline, (which no one will ever see)
and I did 3-4 coats of poly, on top, back and sides



No straight on photo, huge tree in the way !
