My family and I went on a much needed vacation. It’s been 4 years since we
last went on one. It is amazing how much you think you don’t need a vacation,
then when you are away, you realize how much you did need it.
I am back and off to the races!
Holly began quilting last year and, to guesstimate, she has made 5 quilts
thus far. Not bad for a beginner. She has help from Carol and together
they make quite a team.
On Monday, Holly called and dropped off some quilts. She needed 2 by
This one is for someone special who loves John Deere tractors. It is quite cute.
I think that he will love this quilt.
We decided that it needed a circular design, so we went with
“Flirtatous.” Lots of swirls and circles to give the quilt top movement.
Even the back of the quilt has John Deere all over it.
This second quilt was made by Carol and given to Holly.
What a gift!
We decided to go with another circular design, to add movement to
the quilt pattern. This time, we chose “Quirky.” It is one of my favorite
pantos, from Willow Leaf Studio. I think it looks great!
Tomorrow, I am working on 2 pillow shams. Hoping to have all 3 done and
out the door by Friday.
I am hoping to continue with the fabric painting and am looking forward to
Mickey Lawler being on The Quilt Show, this week. She paints alot of fabric
and I am hoping to learn lots from her.
Until next time,

I find it amazing that there is still John Deere fabrics still available! It must be one of those classic prints that just never go out of style!
Adorable John Deere quilt! We farm here!
I know what you mean about a vacation. I just went on one with my husband, our first alone together in 5 years. It was so amazing how regenerated I felt afterward!
I really like the colours in the buzz-saw quilt. What a wonderful gift.
Great quilts, and your fantastic quilting brings them to life!
