I’m sure those of you that comment have noticed that I’ve been terrible at responding of late. Life has been crazy. Mr. Wonderful spent the first two weeks of April in Arizona with me and we flew back to Michigan last weekend. Between enjoying time with him, getting ready to go, and trying to get my bearings back up north, responding has fallen to the bottom of the list.
The pups were great little travelers!
I’ll try today to remedy that by answering questions here on the blog.
Stretcher blankets. They are just what they sound like, used for ambulance/hospital stretchers. None of those I purchased at Goodwill appear to have been used, one was new in the package. I did wash all before using! I’m considering buying a few for my design wall in Michigan.
The giant baby. I really don’t know the story behind this. It doesn’t advertise anything. They are large cut outs along the highway. The giant baby has freaked out the farmer by using his tractor as a toy. The mother appears to be saying, “Not again! Give it back!” I love the whimsy of it!
Straight line quilting. I quilted this on my long arm using a channel lock.
Farmers Wife. Some of you suggested extending the design into the border. Great idea! That is my plan now! And I’ve decided to emphasize the squares on point rather than the Ohio Stars. I was asked why I chose these fabrics for the alternate blocks. I think they have good contrast with each other, but they don’t grab attention away from the pieced blocks.
So sorry for the lack of individual responses. It’s going to take a while to get back into a routine here. I left my sewing room here in quite the mess!
I scheduled many blog posts ahead, so it will look like I’m still in AZ for a bit. Hard to believe I went from this:
I won’t mention the snow flurries we’ve had here. Ugh.
Have a great day!
Please don’t feel you must respond to each comment. It’s not necessary in my case. I think it would be great if you could answer questions as you did in this post.
