Field of Dreams

 the title of this one love the baptist fan quilting that Tella did on this! it was perfect for this quit.

These are strips that I had done a swap with in Irene Dewars group a while ago and we used the Bonnie Hunter pattern of Many trips around the world
 I found the border fabric from a place in a small town in Ontario called Dutton.

 The John Deer Fabric I had for a while it was first going to be a one block wonder and then it was going to be a quillow for my dad, then it became the backing for this quilt, the baptist fan really makes this look like furrows in the fields
 So here Buddy and I are modelling hair not combed but out and about enjoying this breezy day.

 I wanted to show you one of my buds coming out on one of my oakleaf hydrangeas, I have 4 different varieties. This year they are blooming last year they did not so happy.
 My Roses are climbing and blooming they are sturdy they have been cut down to nothing and come back every faithful
 then these 2 are really favorites of mine low maintenance, barely and sun and yet they give so much!
 I thought this one was a goner a couple of years ago but it decided that it liked it here after all.. they are not honeysuckle but not sure of the name of them...

which btw all I smell is honeysuckle in the back yard with them blooming  now as well will show pictures next time
 I thought you would like to see this painted fern up close is it not beautiful love it and the texture the colors give
So this is the pile of quilts that I have had done in the last month there are 8 there! in different stages of binding.

Whew I can`t wait to get back to fun sewing!


  1. You have certainly been busy, eight quilts in a month is a great achievement! Your painted fern is interesting......I saw one years ago at Butchart Gardens, I don't know if they grow here. Probably not, because our climate is very different to yours.

  2. I had some of that cow border fabric at one time. I used it to fuse the cows onto scenic quilts. Works well on this quilt....and I am partial to the Baptist Fan quilting design.

  3. OMG .... I love this quilt! The quilting is perfect! So is the border fabric. Definitely says you!
