Quilt With Us

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.  I visited a local quilt shop & saw this panel along with 2 others.  I liked this one the best as the old barn reminds me of the old barn on the farm where I grew up in Michigan.  I sent him a picture & he liked it so I told him if he would buy the fabric, I would supply labor & batting as a 70th birthday gift. I outline quilted most of the motifs which took way longer than I intended, but I'm happy with how it turned out.   I am going to Michigan to attend a memorial service next week & will be giving it to him then.

This should conjure up many memories and will be much loved. It's an awesome quilt and I'm sure he'll love it, not only because of the fabric, but that his sister made it with much love.

Thanks Jan.  Our dad always had a red bandana in his back pocket so when I saw that fabric I knew I had to include it in this quilt.

Nicely done, Janet!  The coordinating fabrics set it off just right.

Love that panel you chose, Janet! I’m sure your brother will love the quilt, not only for the tractors, but as a gift from you.

Thanks Lynne.  I wish the quilt show was still going on so we could meet up again.
