This is Snow Day, the other Crossroads BOM. The first time I used 3 kids on a toboggan they were Kelly, Max and Brian. That was a year or two ago in one of my first quilts Snowbound. This time the kids in the toboggan are Aiden, Quinn & Cullen, Max's 3 sons. The children in the bottom block are Brooke (with the lellow hat because lellow is her favorite color, she's 2) and Gabriel and Lilly. They're 3 of Brian's 4 kids.
Children playing in the snow are a recurring theme in my quilts because they are so very awesome.
Jake, Brian Jr & Zoie are teenagers and much harder to depict but they're pretty awesome too.
The quilt size is 70" x 68". We have also gotten emails and phone calls asking us to kit it as well as Eagles & Roses. So we're taking preorders for this kit now also. I need the preorders to know how much fabric to order and again I have very little time before orders for Crossroads close So if you want a kit from me, you need to order it now. It will ship in late August or early September and will cost $215.00. You need to email Tori at firstname.lastname@example.org (Be sure to ask for a return email to make sure we got it) or call 816-632-7632. We do take layaway orders. I'm pretty sure there will be a tutorial on it, God willing and the creek don't rise.
And speaking of Zoie - she had her 13th birthday on June 3.
Zoie loves pie.
She has always wanted a "pie in the face" birthday party. So this year her mother bought all the ingredients, graham cracker shells, pudding packs and whipped cream. And Zoie, Ashley and Cheyenne came to the farm.
This really was her idea and something she always wanted.
To each her own. :)
She really did seem to enjoy it.
And I know Hunny and Spike did.
At least there wasn't just the pies. Pep grilled chicken and made slaw and a yummy birthday pie for all of us.
I must say, the quilts I was stitching on stayed inside.
