But July is REALLY CLOSE :)

The garden is ready.

But I get ahead of myself. 

On Monday the 17th, I got into my car and
drove to Dubuque, Iowa to give a
lecture to the ladies of the Cable Car
Quilt Guild, a thoroughly delightful group.

After the lecture I spent the night at the home
of Ruth Lyon.  And I sincerely owe her an
apology.  When I left the next day to drive home
I told her that I would call when I got here and 
The drive took a little longer than I anticipated
After all Iowa is just right on top of Missouri.  
However you go straight up to DesMoines and
turn right.  The turn right is the tricky part.

Once back here I plunged straight in to
designing quilts for my latest fabric line 
Clover Meadow which I believe will start  
showing to shops in July.
I'm sure you can figure out the colors 
from the name and I must say, I love it.

Another thing I came back to was
chickens - lots of chickens.
These are 2 of my Buff Orpington hens with
Americauna/orpington cross chicks.

We've always bought baby chicks, not had them hatch.
It's so much more fun when they're with their
mothers. The yards have netting over them 
to keep them safe from  hawks.

This is the 1st brooder house they go into 
with the small feeders and waterers.

Usually it's hard to get the young ones into the
houses at night so I can close them up.
Not now - Mamas just cluck and they come running.
You have to come in when the street lights 
come on, you know.

These 3 are the latest hatched - Cochin/Americauna cross.

Our special this week is on the Patriotic page on the website.

15% off

Have a great week and a safe 4th.

Keep quilting.

Its Still June......

And I did get an eagle kit 
ready for the 4th.
Well, since I'm pretty busy designing
quilts for my next fabric line 
Clover Meadow, what I 

did was do an old favorite in new fabric.
This is Let Freedom Ring - 2019
and you can get the kit by clicking here.
You can at least get the top done by the 4th
and we seem to have a 4th of July every year 
so you're set.  :)

And since our website decided to go
on the fritz last week and tell people we didn't ship 
to Colorado or Wyoming or New York 
or wherever (Aargh!) I decided to leave Cabin
in the Pines on Sale for another week too.

Have fun ladies and
Keep Quilting.

Good Heavens - It's June

Spring Market is over
and in case you can't tell I came 
home to plunge straight into designing
quilts for my latest fabric line
Clover Meadow.

Which is why I haven't 
been blogging lately.

But it is June and July follows June
so lets get ready for the 4th.

Our book special this month is Liberty Garden -
with patterns for 9 quilts and

wallhangings with a patriotic theme.

You can order your copy by clicking here.

Our Deal of the Week is the 
Cabin in the Pines BOM for half price.
You can buy it by clicking here.

Come back next Blockheads Wednesday 
(no- we're not doing another Blockheads quilt
as far as I know but as one of the original 8, 
Wednesday will always be Blockheads Day to me).

Anyway, I'll see if I can find an Eagle Quilt Kit 
to ease us into the 4th.

Keep quilting ladies.
