Quilts for the Home

Here is a new quilt pattern I am working on.

Another new quilt pattern in the making.

 Dazzling Daisey Table Runner is a new class I am offering.  The techniques taught are piecing with triangle layouts, working with overlays and machine applique.

 Rebecca made a cast-iron skillet coffee cake for
 a mid-morning coffee break. 
 Barbara - Autumn - Rebecca

  It was so yummy.

 A day out with hubby at the Berryville Gas and Steam. This was a  fun day going to flee markets and looking at old steam engines.

 This ole rooster was carved with a chain saw.  Notice the bear and raccoon in the right bottom part of the picture.

My bargain of the day was two omnigrid rulers,
 one mat and an olfa cutter for a small fee.

    Also, thanks for pointing out the bear and the raccoon. I would have totally missed those sweet faces.
