  I so enjoyed hearing Caryl Bryer Fallert Gentry's lecture at the Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg, VA.  If you get a chance go see this exhibit by December 19.
 My niece Jolene was also at the lecture.

 Life....
Wednesday was our monthly sewing 
day at the church.  Some of us quilt....

 ....and some of us knot comforts.

 A trip to Pennsylvanian 
Ben, Melissa, Rowen, Rebecca and I packed up the 
van and headed to PA to visit Autumn and Laban.
 

We took our sewing machines and spent all day Saturday sewing.
 Rowen learning to quilt.

 Rebecca is cutting out a quilt while Autumn is working on lunch.

Autumn is teaching Rebecca some tricks on the piano.

Melissa doing some mending.

 Rowen is learning another skill.
  
Old Fashion Day at the Old Order Mennonite  School
  I drive these precious little children to school every day.

 A lunch pail and wide rim sun bonnet.

 Most of the girls wore aprons.

 Hat, vest, knickers, white socks and lunch pail.
The excitement of the children was so much fun to see.

  2. I really like the one quilt you showcased. It is beautiful. PS eliminate me from the giveaway if I my name should be drawn. Even though I'd love this book; I have way too many! I'm sure others will enjoy it more than I. :-)

  4. My favorite is just a simple flying geese pattern. Looks like you're having lots of busy fun, Barbara! Glad you were able to visit Autumn and quilt some while there. We're recuperating this week after Sarah's wedding on Saturday. It was beautiful, and she's so excited to be married. But it sure is quiet around here!

  6. How beautiful your quilts are! I'm not sure I could choose one favorite but I seem to have stars in several if my quilts do there's a definite theme there.

  7. Oh my goodness...I have your Simply Triangles book and I never made the connection!!! Love that book!! I love working with triangles and I really like your stars - so awesome!!! The sweet children you take to school each day are adorable and I enjoyed the pictures of their Old Fashioned Day! Straight out of the historical fiction (Little House on the Prairie series) I have enjoyed reading.

  10. I love log cabin quilts. I looked through your website and I love the Chinese Checkers quilt. My grandpa made wooden Chinese Checkers boards for all of his grandchildren many years ago. It is something I treasure.

  14. Since I have the Star Struck quilt book I would have to say Stars from the book. I've been trying to do a huge star quilt for my daughter who loves stars.

  15. I would say Struck design. My daughter loves stars & I'm making her one from the book.
    One side is a huge star of her favorite materials & reverse is blocks of stars.

  16. You are an inspiration to so many of us fortunate to know you. Stars are my favorite design to put into quilts - they are always stunning. Thank you Barbara.

  24. I have two of your books (Simply triangles and star struck Quilts), am trying to save up to buy the others, so to win this book would be the best Christmas present ever. I love all the quilts but I suppose my favorite would be Surprise Package. Love all your work. Thank you for the opportunity.

  29. Wow, first time to your blog. What a wonderful wholesome family you have! I am envious. Your quilt design of easy stars is really great, your use of fabric is even more great! What a talent you have with both. You must have a great imagination. I am going to keep an eye on your site. Love your star quilt.
