20190505_171203.jpgBarn Quilts are beautiful. They have been around for hundreds of years. In the past, farmers used different types of folk-art including quilt-like blocks to decorate their barns. People chose blocks to reflect particular meanings. They have had a resurgence in the last 20 years with many states offering Barn Quilt Trails or Tours. A barn quilt can be hung on the exterior of your barn, house, porch, garage, gate, shed, gazebo, chicken coop or boat shed to be shared with admirers from the road. They are also finding their way inside homes and offices. We have another class to paint a Barn Quilt on May 14th at 2 pm.  Click here for more info and to register.

T-Shirt Rag Quilts

20190312_111925.jpgDid you ever have one of those days (or weeks) where things just didn’t go right….at all? That is what has been going on lately.  UGH!  And this morning I went to pull out my go-to machine to work on a new pattern for a quilt and forgot that it was still down at The Studio from last weekend’s sewing class.  UGH again!!!!  But then I thought maybe I will use my little “Nola Mae”, my Featherweight machine.  (People with Featherweights name their machines because they become part of the family.  Mine is named for Granny, my paternal grandmother.  She patiently let a little girl “help” her sew.  I learned so much from her so I wanted this one to be named for her.)  The minute I threaded her up and made the first few stitches my mood lightened and I smiled.  20190312_112019.jpgShe turned my day around.  This little machine makes me so happy!  Read more about this little girl here.
