I'm back from my time at Pioneer Farm in Illinois. It's a family place that we are lucky enough to enjoy due to the foresight of my late mother and father in law, Geraldine and Blair. Here are two other posts I've done on the farm. This one is summer and this one is winter.
Happy Birthday to me!! Mary brought me two antique R/W quilt tops! They will be a nice remembrance of our recent trip to Paducah where we saw a great lecture on R/W quilts.
They are both hand pieced and I would label their condition as Tender but not Fragile. (fra-geee-ly)
Does anyone know the name of the set of the Half Square Triangle quilt?
Here is how she pieced and set the blocks.
Here are three quilts made bySheila. She used my fan stencil for machine quilting on the far left star quilt. She also suggests I do a little tutorial on how to mark it.
On the way to the farm, we stopped at Ralphie's house in Cleveland. Here is a sneak peak of a post I'll be doing at Christmastime.
Here is Andrew and Hanna's BF, David, playing with BB guns a the farm. The only thing we killed were cans. Yes, that is a real Red Rider BB Gun in the lower left corner - so funny!
Thanks for making to the end. I will be back with a 4th of July post. and a few more farm photos. Hopefully I will soon be backing sewing.......what's sewing???
Happy Friday Everyone!
