What's Up Buttercup

 Happy September!  I'm just back from a little trip to my husband's family farm.

I brought my recently finished Vedderstone Ranch quilt.  Here are some details.
I machine quilted it AND added big stitch details.  I know! what a rule breaker.  Here it is chilling on the swing. 
The quilt and I had a happy photo shoot from different spots on the farm.
The corn was like 8 feet high!   I also climbed the windmill, which does spin, but just for  fun.
It is such a pretty farm and we're so blessed to have a place to gather and visit.  Here is a prairie that my father in law planted for  my step mother in law.  It is filled with grasses and flowers, but I didn't get a great photo of it.
Here is the sign where our land ends at our rural road that gets us into town.  It is a one light town.  The land was settled in 1833 but The Vedders have only had it since the 1970s.
This is about as fancy as things get here.....box brownies with strawberries.
Here are some other pretty shots from around the farm.  The gator and walking path through the woods behind the houses.
The soybean field in the early morning with a layer of mist.  I love the wide open sky!
The setting sun hitting the "grandkids" house which was built when we had our two children and my BIL an SIL had two children.
A view from the porch swing on the Main House (original log home built first).

I had planned to share other photos, but I'll wait for the next post - this one is long enough.

I could not resist joining the antique quilt star stitch along hosted by Taryn over at Repro Quilt Lover. 
Here are my first two blocks.

I hope you are all happy and doing well.
