Best Plan...And Husband??

Pin It
I had a plan to go and get some quilt pictures. 
WELL, my plan just didn't pan out !  I can laugh now, but the night I saw over 40 pictures and these are the best ????? I was a mess ! 

On our recent vacation, I took 3 quilts and if you are on pinterest.com 
you've seen how beautiful they are done.

I'd planned to be at the beach (Anna Maria) my 9 a.m. get the pictures, spend some time and then go have lunch (I told Husband my plan) . Husband had other plans, to pick up his mom and getting to the beach at noon (Siesta Keys) . It wasn't his fault, but he did say, "Do you need anything done?" She did !  "Which beach do you like?"
I just about fell over as the words came out of his mouth, 2 times ! 

SO, next trip, we will have to re-do these, 
you can see the heat in the pictures and in me.
My hair didn't look like that when we left that morning,



We'll TRY again, maybe with a professional !

Barn Quilt for Our Fence, How we did it

Pin It
It didn't take long and Husband had me a square of plywood. See other's

We used 1/4" plywood, sanded just a bit, (I like seeing the texture of the wood) they measure 26" x 26", real barn ones 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
and I did 3-4 coats of poly, on top, back and sides

Great, Great Grandmother made My Mom a Quilt

Pin It
This is the quilt that started it all for me. See Story
I had been making quilted pillows.

Pin Wheel Quilt

We moved to Burlington, IA and I went to a few quilt classes, auctions and was learning about quilting at every turn.

Great, Great Grandmother made My Mom a Pin Wheel Quilt

On a visit down to see us, my mother arrived with this quilt for me. As a child I'd never seen it, never heard anything about it. 

Great, Great Grandmother made  a Pin Wheel Quilt

My Great-great grandmother had made it for my mother. Mom remembers helping with cutting of the fabric and helped pump the sewing machine. 

Great, Great Grandmother made a Pin Wheel Quilt

It's machine pieced and hand quilted.

The off blocks are done in a spider web quilt design.

The edge and it's tiny stitches.

I have it out on a bed, I just like to look at it
