I have finished all of the union blocks for my Gone to Texas quilt and sewed them together. This will give me about 10 1/2" extra width for the quilt top. Next I need to work on the fill-in section that goes on the bottom of this section as well as the right panel which is mostly HSTs and squares. It's coming along!
I was the lucky winner of this kit from Taryn. It is a kit of the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle (from Temecula Quilt Co.) and the name of the quilt is Prairie Huswyfe. When finished, the quilt measures 27 3/4" x 27 3/4". Thank you so much Taryn! I will look forward to making this some time soon!
Right next to the RV park is a place that makes and sells yard statutes. They also have quite a few junk cars and 30 goats, a donkey and a rooster. We can hear the rooster crow and the donkey bray from our camper. My DIL wanted to go there to find out if they sell goats (she is thinking about raising goats when they get a place of their own). Here's Abigail with the billy goat (gruff?). I would have taken a picture of the rooster, but he was an ugly thing. He may have been in a fight with a fox (or other animal) that recently killed their other rooster and 4 chickens.
You can see some of the yard statutes in the background while Abigail beats on the "drum" statute. I'm not sure what that is supposed to be, but Abigail said it was a drum, so we'll go with that. Note: Don't argue with a 3 year old. Of course, it is made of cement.
My DIL and I plan to go to a thrift shop today that we had some good luck at last time we were here. I just might make my way over to the quilt shop again. I need to get some pink for the pink lemonade shoo-fly quilt. Hope you have a quilty day!
