Other Barn Happenings

While at Mary's Barn on Tuesday, a couple of gals worked on something other than the Peekaboo Bag. In a hasty post this morning (I'm off to Peeble shortly), I will share those with you.

Cherie came with a goal. She wanted to piece this entire quilt top. Her strips were cut out and she may even have had them in the order she wanted them. Anyway, we hardly heard a peep out of her because she was accomplishing her goal!

Her colors were medium browns with a few dusty pinks thrown in. I think they all work well together. She said all the fabrics came from her stash. That's my kind of project.

And here is the completed top. She did say she was open to adding borders, but had yet to decide about that. It looks just great.

While Cherie worked on big piecing, Laura worked on tiny piecing. Take a look at these pics.

Laura sewed these sweet stars on that lovely repro Featherweight machine. She had her little assembly line all set up, with pressing right there beside her. Talk about efficiency.

Her pattern is from the current issue of Primitive Quilts. As you can see in the next photo, I cut off the full title, but you can see the pic if you are interested in making it.

Well, the car is loaded up with quilts and quilt tops. I am off for a full day. I will report back in due time.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

  2. Sorry, I deleted the other comment cos I said I was sure the day "would" go well. Then I realised I should have said "I hope you had a great day, I'm sure your trunk show went down a storm."
