I am having surgery on my right elbow on Tuesday so I hurried to get these 2 quilts done. The 1st one was made up of blocks made by members of the Machine Embroidery Buddies a few years ago. The other one was also machine embroidered. It just took a couple of days to make as I wanted a new fall quilt for a wall in my living room.…Continue
A couple of years ago my brother Mike asked me if I ever saw fabric with tractors on it. I told him I would keep an eye out & let him know if I ever found some.
