Trace the triangle template given in the pattern and cut it out.  Tape it to the backside of a ruler as shown.  This will help you cut the corners on the A and B pieces.…Continue

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Well, I just accidently deleted my comment! Humph! Gonna try again....silly me!!

Froggie, you will get your little quilt done and naje the kitty's happy...yes you will! :-)

I went to Springfield today with a friend, and we stopped off at Sew Simple Quilt Shop in Ozark to look for fabric for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt. Anyway....Guess what they had hanging on the wall!!!! YES, it was a Little Red Barns Quilt! They are doing it as a block of the month. And the really good thing....at least it made me feel good...it didn't look a bit better than mine! They just used a few different fabrics, that's all. LOL Anyway, that and buying a huge stack of fabric in there just made my day!!!

My quilt is still sitting on my chair. It is a sad kitty quilt that needs quilting. Maybe between Christmas gifts, I will get it quilted.

Thanks guys. It was a lot of fun to make Lynne. You should do one. :-) I hope Barbara can get better pictures of her quilting than I could with my camera. I can't wait to see her's finished. Now, on to start a new project.lol

Great Quilt Kathy!  I didn't make one of these, but I followed everyone as you went along.  Barbara posted on Gifty that her's is back from the LAer, so I can't wait to see a pic of that one either!  Your gaughter is one lucky lady.

What a wonderful quilt, Kathy.  And you finished it on time.  Good going.

It is beautiful, Kathy.

I'm sure your daughter will love it.

Thanks for the pitures.

Whooohoo! It's done...quilted and off to my daughter for her birthday. I suppose you want pictures? LOL Well, whether you do or not....here they are.DH is holding it up for me...the background is our grape arbor and garden.

These are close-ups of some of the quilting. I think they are self explanatory.

Not sure it is going to show up really well, but I quilted a feather motif on the chickens in the wing area.
