BARN QUILT

I haven't been able to post several of the things I've been working on lately.  It's that time of year and I don't want to spoil anyone's Christmas gift.  I'm not saying I'm the giver of all the things I've been working on, I'm just saying this elf has been busy!  Since I can't post my busy work now, I'm posting my work from a Christmas past. 

Last year I made this quilt for my oldest son, Drew.  He lives on a small farm near Nevada, Missouri.  I thought this quilt was quite fitting.  I had Karen Woodcox embroider "Liles Farm, Established June 2009" to commemorate the year he bought his farm.  Ironically enough, it is the same house his dad and I rented when he was a little boy.  The house has since been added on to and completely re-modeled and doesn't even look or feel like the same place it was 25 years ago.  I really didn't want to give it to him after all the hours I put in completing it.  He was thrilled with it (well, as thrilled as a man can be about getting a quilt) and knows and appreciates the work the goes into making a quilt.  Maybe someday I'll make another one for me!

  1. Great job!!! I fell in love with Eleanor's book and have made one quilt so far. It's call Stars and Stripes Allover.
