Day 11 - House and Tree Day

Years ago (back when the dinosaurs roamed) :) when I very first started quilting I did a quilt called "House and Tree and Me and Thee". With a house full of teenagers it was a kind of wishful thinking quilt.

A few years ago I did a little "House and Tree" wallhanging. All 3 are grown with houses of their own - pretty well full of kids and love.
Every once in awhile the kids come bursting into our house and bring all of their noisy love with them. We are always so very glad to see them. After another while they all leave again and it's House and Tree and Me and Thee again. And blessedly quiet.

Anyway, House and Tree is on special today for 15% off. After Valentine's Day it will hang in the back hall until time for the Easter quilts to come down from the loft.

This is Brian Jr. - one of the older bursters. If Brian and Shannon are coming he'll call and say, "Grandma, is Jake going to be there? OK, I'll come then". And Jake will say, "Is Brian Jr. going to be there? OK, I'll come then." Makes a Grandma feel needed. Oh well, I suppose if I learned to play X-box 360, I'd be more popular. I think instead, I'll make Brian Jr. a football quilt using Barbara Brackman's sports pattern. He looks like he plays football doesn't he?

On a different note - back to quilts - this is Square Dance Garden. We've returned to Coxcombs after the Lilacs. If you belong to the Wallhanging Club you'll be getting yours soon. If not, you can order yours by clicking on the title.

And this is our Valentine Mini Quilt - Heart to Heart. Just finished the binding today. Kind of hard to believe they're out of the same fabric line, but they are. I did use a classic Woven for one of the backgrounds in Heart to Heart but otherwise they're both from Together.

Don't forget to type in the promo code Holiday for free shipping on all orders over $30.00 (after discounts). And be sure to go back to Day 7 and comment if you haven't for a chance to win this year's Mystery Quilt. Tomorrow is the last day!.


  1. I like the new valentines piece, something easy to make up and nice to hang through the season.
