I would have never thought in a million years that a tiny baby quilt would take so long to finish. I’ve been working on this little treasure for two months, cut to finish!! The problem wasn’t the pattern, it was just finding the time to work on it. Spring is not the time to start a new project!! There are just too many things to do outside like yard cleanup, flower bed cleanup, grafting trees, starting seeds and not to mention tearing down the cattle working-pen and rebuilding again. Well, most of it is completed now and today I finish the little 40 x 48 fussy cut quilt. I think it turned out pretty well and I completed it before the baby is walking. I’m pretty proud of it though it’s not my most difficult but it is my first tied quilt. The colors were decided after a talk with the babies dad and the colors of their three year old brother’s room. The bold blues and orange were the colors of the room with ocean animals as their theme. I thought the fish and sea turtles pulled together fine with the bright orange from some of the fish. I think they’ll both love it.
Country Girl Through & Through
I'm a country girl from the western part of Virginia in a small community of New Castle/Craig County. I've lived in Craig all my life-eighteen years with my parents and siblings and forty + years with my wonderful husband.
We have two children, a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, all of which we love very much. We live on a 500 acre+ farm that has been in my husbands family for over 200 years. We are raising beef cattle, chickens, rabbits and a couple dogs.. We grow pretty much all we eat or harvest from the farm and I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I love to create, craft, quilt, read, write, decorate, crochet, candlewick, bake, bow hunt, cook, garden, farm animals and walking/hunting in the woods. I love sharing our home with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy the posts that I enter on my blog and hopefully will be helpful and/or fun to all that read it.
