The Wedding Quilt

by CountryThreads on June 24, 2017

Here it is – queen size improv-pieced quilt for Danny and Virginia’s wedding gift.  I like it again – after I work on a big project for a long time, I am really sick of it until I put it away and bring it out again.  I hope they like it.  I took pictures from all sides but the names go down the left side of the bed and the rose block is straight on.  It’s windy and I had a hard time keeping it on the fence!


The lighting could be better but now time is short.


Time to get dressed for the wedding.  Pictures tomorrow!

Wedding Day

by CountryThreads on June 23, 2017

Tomorrow is Danny and Virginia’s wedding.  I was ready to show you the wedding quilt so I started searching for the picture of the finished quilt.  Good grief!  I guess I never took the picture and now it’s already wrapped so tomorrow morning I will have to unwrap it, take the picture and re wrap it.

I was at Connie’s house today to visit the kittens.  Here are Dot and Lily with Connie and Hope.  


Hope loves her kittens!  She watches over them as if they were her very own.


I took a couple of garden pictures – I wish I loved to garden like Connie but it’s just not my thing.


The tall plant here is Joe Pyeweed.


So until I unwrap the quilt and take the picture……..

The Day Got Away From Me!

June 20, 2017

I said I was going to post those quilts yesterday but the day filled up so fast I couldn’t find the time. I made this quilt for my friend Abby in Alaska who is having a baby in September.  She requested rainbow colors with the emphasis on purple.  How did I do? The pattern came […]

Fabric is Gone

June 19, 2017

Just a short note to tell you the green polka dot fabric is all gone.  I took pictures of some quilts yesterday and will post them later today.  It’s so cool here in North Iowa that I have a sweater on!  What a change!

I forgot!

June 17, 2017

I meant to put this picture of the June quilt on my post last night. I just wanted to add that if anyone is looking for that same grass green polka dot, we still have some on a bolt.  Contact me at marye@ncn.net if you’re interested. Days like today, those without a goal or a […]

Connie’s kittens are going to the lake with her this weekend – lucky girls!  Mama has brought the other three outside to play.  I really want them to be inside cats if at all possible but they might have to be outside cats for someone.  The three goslings are getting along great with the aunts […]

A Novel Idea

June 14, 2017

The perfect “book club” would have no officers, would meet once a month and everybody could read their own choice of books!  And we have it here in Garner at our new library!  Connie sent out about 20 invitations to gals we thought might be avid readers and we met this morning for exactly one […]

More Babies!

June 13, 2017

You won’t believe this – I don’t believe it!  Last night there were 4 goslings that had hatched – one was dead but probably had been stepped on by an adult goose that was making all the racket.  Good grief – what’s in the water around here?  I have never had multiple goslings hatch and […]
