What better time to work on a fall themed quilt than on a cold
Shirley made this next quilt as a BOM. Buggy Barn is the
designer of this pattern “Farm Fresh.”
How can you not love what designs they create?
I think that the pumpkins are my most favorite part of this

I love the Canadian flags in the flower pot too. I am unsure
if Shirley designed these herself or if they came with the
The flowers in this pot are so cute too. I love the whole thing and
may just have to make one for myself.
Here is what the watering can and stool look like. It was alot

be filled with meandering or stippling.
In the border area, I stitched in several more sunflowers. It

Here is the stem of the sunflowers in the border. The thread color

Have a great week.

The quilt is very nice, but the quilting is something else again! Very well done.
You both should be proud of the workmanship on this quilt. The applique is beautiful and you made it more so with the way you quilted it.
i am a great admirer of country themed applique quilts and when you add in such beautiful quilting, it makes the whole thing extra, extraordinary!
