 This gardener at heart really struggles , should I be outside with nature or
inside with my other love.  But it has been rainy for the last several days and
I have gotten a few things done.  Yippee !!!!!!!!!!!!  Love it when my sewing room
is active.

I did this Prairie Point quilt in a sewing class.  Our guild has sewing class on certain nights.  We have great quilters in our guild that teach our classes.
I think it is great because it lets all of this talent really shine.  Anyway I loved this pattern and finally finished quilting it last week.  Thanks Pam Cato for
teaching this class.

I used Nancy Halverson fabric ( jelly Roll ) made by Benetex.  I discovered
Benetex is not my favorite fabric.

This blue quilt that is hanging is not finished yet, needs to be quilted.  I made this quilt, I'm embarrassed to say about 5 or 6 years ago.  I have a very good
long armer ( Donna Barlow ) of Lady Bug Quilt Studio that will be quilting it
for me.

I loved this pattern. I think Log Cabin is one of  my favorites.  I made this quilt during a Quilt retreat, had a blast.

Oops sorry for the duplicate picture. Blogger isn't playing nice.

I found this wall hanging panel that I found at Hobby Lobby.  Cut outs on the left
of picture you cut out and attach to panel to look 3D.  This is so sweet to hang on your door for fall.  This panel is great for using different stitches to accent for quilting.  I've got it cut out and pinned.  I will be quilting on this tomorrow.

I don't always  think of fabric when I think Hobby Lobby.  I try to get fabric at
quilt shops.  I hate to admit it but I am a Quilt shop snob.  Missouri Star Quilt
Company get a lot of my business on line.  They always have a great deal of the
day.  I love their tutorials.  Great learning tool.

Two years ago I did block of the month for our guild.  This was one of the blocks.
Christmas stocking so easy to make.  I had a lot of Christmas fabric scraps to use. So I made a table runner.  I will do some echo quilting on this. 

So I am going to end this blog with some nature.  Deer in my front yard.  They have eaten everything in our yard, veggies, hosta, .  It has been such a dry spring
that they are looking for anything for moisture.  This is our resident deer family .  A doe, 2 fawns in spots and a young buck.  Probably her baby from
last year ( yearling ).

This is the reason I live in the boondocks I love nature and all that it brings. 

I'll be gardening and stitching...................
