Thanks, Patricia! He was a good one. He had been losing weight and not acting the same for several months, so we thought he was about ready to go. I did have a great birthday!
Hoppy quilting!

Patricia, My friend at work named Big Boy Tripod! Isn't that funny how warped minds work? I changed my pic because Big Boy went to the big Tripod in the sky yesterday. He was old, and very sick. We expected him to go, at least it wasn't on my birthday!

Patricia, Thanks for the comment on the postage stamp quilt. I didn't really have a pattern. A friend of mine was making one and I just copied her, with some changes. Basically, you cut 1-1/2 X 3-1/2 inche strips of white (or other light color) and the same size of the colored fabrics. You then sew those together, alternating, into sets of 8. After pressing all seams one direction, you cut that strip set into 2 - 1-1/2" wide strips. When you get a bunch of those strips done, you join them, end to end. The original quilt was supposed to be 80 X 90 (or 7,200 squares). Mine isn't that big - more like 60 X 72.

Hi Patricia,
I just found out last week that the Pickle Barrel has closed. There is apparently a rib place there now..although it does have pickle chips on the menu. We haven't tried it out yet.

Thunder is a Morgan. I also have another Morgan named Topic. He is a bay. I'm just "alittle" horse crazy. Have been all my life. I'm slowly collect horse prints which I'm adding to my stash. I'll need to come up with a pattern that works well. I'm sorry you had to leave your Arab when you moved. We get attached to our animals.

Pat, the name of the pattern is The Big Shopper and I got it from Connecting Threads. The bottom is made of 5" squares. It has easy pockets in the lining and is a BIG bag for plenty of 'stuff'!

Thanks Patricia for the comments. Our house is like a zoo some days. All the animals run loose most of the time. We keep the goats in there pen, cause they like to eat the roses especially the coral one behind the house. mama goat will eat every bloom she can or all that are blooming, she was teaching the babies how to eat them and the lillies. Bad Goats.....................Have a great week.

Next time you go to Minnesota I would love to tag along. I live about an hour and a half from Maquotka and truly can't see my husband shop hopping that far away. But if you went up there for family or other personnel reason I wouldn't want to butt in. Just a thought. That Calico Hutch sounds wonderful from all the chat about it.

Thanks for the compliments. I used to hate sewing, too until a friend 'forced' me to sign up for tailoring in high school. The teacher told us the only way we passed was to get an 'A'. I never got an 'A' in sewing in my life! But it worked. lol I know tons of people who have only quilted and never sewn garments; I think it's easier in many ways.

Actually, I think it's about 100 miles, but what's a 100 miles when you are heading to a quilt shop, right? LOL

Country Threads is by Garner, where l lived before I moved to NW Iowa. Haven't been there for several years. Calico Hutch - just makes me want to get in the car and head there!!!!! LOVE that shop. That's where I got the pattern and fabric for the black and white quilt for my DGS's graduation quilt. There's a pic on my page. I was talking about Homespun Quilt Shop in Estherville. Candy has beautiful Civil War prints and makes gorgeous kits. She'll be at AQS in Oct. Are you going?

Patricia - I love your carpenter's star. I'm just getting into the Civil War prints thanks to a shop about an hour from here in Estherville. Gives the quilt a whole new element, doesn't it? Your star looks three dimensional because of your great use of color.

I also worked from home for many years, typing commercial appraisals. I retired in January and now just do research for the same firm. Always thought working from home was such a blessing. I have many health issues and it allowed me to continue to work.

I started quilting about 15 years ago. When I was in high school I took 1 semester of "home ec" (back in the day) and my teacher told me maybe I should consider another course because I just wasn't interested AT ALL in homemaking. LOL My mom and grandmother sewed, quilted, did beautiful embroidery, etc. Mom was a bank manager and sewed and tailored most of her own beautiful suits for work. Grandma made square dancing costumes for many in their group. Me - not so much ;ol They couldn't get me to sit behind a sewing machine. Abouth 15 yrs. ago I married my DH and moved to a quaint little town in NW Iowa. I met 4 gals (wives of friends of my DH). They all quilted and got me started. My pups also help me quilt. Don't know what I would do without their company.

Have a great summer!
