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!

Our Newest Family Additions......and another UFO Flannel/Minky Finish....

Well it started out with the FFA class needing to find a home for some.....Chicks... And then it ended up with Carl buying some to bring home so Yep Sunday we became owners do 12 little "Cluckers" or I this case maybe I better say "Chirpers"

 This Black one is Ferdinand
I have managed to finish up another UFO.
This one was also a sample for the LQS and just needed to get it quilted and the binding on. Managed to finish it up this weekend. Yea ME!
It is a Flannel 5 Yard Quilt with a Gray/Black/Red/White Plaid Minky on the back. On this one I quilted it with a Feather allover design.
I was hoping to have two more UFO finishes to post, BUT though I took them with when we went campingto bind  this last weekend I neglected to work on them.  BUT it was OH SO relaxing!

Well that's all I have for now....I am loving getting back into blogging, and finishing up some UFO's. I recently did a UFO count and came up with 37 since I started working back in 2010 soooooo... have vowed to change that to a very minimum!!
Have a wonderful Evening!


  1. Very nice work Judy! Flannel and Minky can both be tricky to quilt, so I am all the more impressed! I followed your link from the QB!

  2. PS - good luck with your chickies!
