I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!

Wisconsin Quilt Blocks on Barns #13 and #14

Good Afternoon!
I have gotten Blocks #13 Cornucopia Racine County and # 14
Crossed Canoes Green County done. Number 13 was a little interesting putting together but really like how they both turned out. I really enjoy doing these blocks and love to paper piece too.
I am so glad that Jen started this block of the week!!
I have another Barn Block of the Month to do and then will be doing some blocks for the Guild that will need to be getting done. Then, I will get after these other two quilts that will be putting on the long arm. Then I have my Rodeo Log Cabin that will be putting on after those. I have been having so much fun learning my APQS!! I have the binding I'm putting on the second quilt I quilted and then wil get it posted. It is such funnnnnnn.......


  1. Congrats on your finish of the blocks. I agree - I had a heck of a time with the cornucopia block too.

  2. I gotta know, what was the problem with the cornucopia? Should I be changing how it goes together? Does it need further instructions? I'd be happy to change it so it goes easier for others. Let me know! =)

    Your blocks came out great!

  3. I had no problems with the cornucopia but the crossed canoes block was terrible and it may be remade someday in the future.

  4. Jen,
    I sent you an email.
