About Me

My photo
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!

Design Wall Monday

On my design wall this morning I have the start of My version of the "Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt". The Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt was Written by Laurie Aaron Hird and she is going to be having a new book come out this next year called the Farmers Wife Pony Club Sampler Quilt. Be sure to check out her site at thefarmerswifequilt.blogspot.com . I am doing my version in 3" blocks and 30's prints. I am also doing a 4" Version in scrappy prints. I am trying to decide what to use for my sashing.hmmm............................
May your quilting be fun and exciting!
