Diane - good to hear from you on the Vintage Quilts group.  Hope things are going well for you and your family.  I always liked hearing what you were working on at any given time.  

Since hand quilting my daughter's DWR quilt in 2012, I've been in major quilting slump.  I seem to be getting back into the swing of things lately.  

We are enjoying being grandparents to DD's little 18 month old boy.  They just live about 3 hours away from us in Yuma, CO, so we can go out and back in a day if we want to.  DS and his wife work with us here on the ranch, which is great, too, but they have no children yet.  

The quilt study center in Lincoln is pretty impressive.  Hope you get a chance to stop in sometime.

It's too bad you had to let go the quilt business  your quilts stunning.

Diane  Thank you for your quick reply.  I am looking at all your quilt pictures again.  Love your colors.   Did you order Bonnie Hunters new book.   Thanks again  .   Would you like to be my friend.

Diane.  I just enjoyed going through pictures of your quilts.  They are so pretty.   I am into scraps and enjoy Bonnie Hunter.  I was wondering what is the name of quilt #60. You said that you made several big quilts of scraps.  Do you remember where you got the pattern.  I would appreciate any help you could give me.  Thanks Barbara Donaldson

Diane,  I remembered your interest in feed sacks, and thought of you when I saw this information poste.   Lucas is a little town about 15 miles due East of Osceolo on Highway er. 

Sat. Feb. 23…”Iowa History in a Cloth Bag” by Michael Zahs from Riverside, Iowa. Come hear the story of how Iowa women used feed sacks to clothe their families, make quilts and other household items. 10:00 at the Lucas Fire Station FREE everyone is welcome even non-quilters!

Diane, of course I'll be your friend -- I didn't realize we weren't already friends -- we seem to have a lot in common!

Diane, have I understood some of your comments correctly?  Do you sometimes restore old quilts?   Would you perhaps be able to help me?    I have a quilt top that my grandmother pieced and appliqued for me and gave to me when I was in my twenties, so I have had it for 40 years.  My grandmother lived in New Bedford, Massachusetts, and was a typical thrifty New Englander.   She saved scraps, and she had access to the bolt ends and seconds from the Massachusets fabric mills, so the fabrics used are some she collected during the 30's and 40's.   My newest lab puppy got mad at me for leaving him home while I ran errands, and chose to mall the quilt.    I know that it will never be the same,but I am hoping that it can be mended.   I would appreciate any assistance,guidance,help that you might be able to give me.

I looked through your photo gallery and you have some amazing quilts.  I quilt all my quilts by hand too.  I make a mess trying to machine quilt. I have pieced several by machine, but I enjoy hand piecing and hand applique, too.

No wonder you've been off line for awhile -- you've been really busy quilting!

Thank you very much Dianne.

Wow Dian you have incredible quilts! I would love to play in your sewing space. Love your slide show of beauties.

Great! I'll post "to the world" when the next book is available, but don't hold your breathe quite yet. :)

AHHHHH, .......no actually I've been working on a series for a while and gotten sidetracked by taking care of parents, etc, but I'm still hoping to get out one by this year.

Do you read the paperback version or ebook? This one will come out by ebook first, then paperback later.

Hi Diane, Haven't heard much from you lately on the hand quilting group and I've been wondering how you are doing.  I'm not sure if you'll end up with the snow storm that passed through here yesterday, but hope it will have snowed itself out by the time it reaches you.  :)  We needed the moisture and ended up with about 5", but certainly not the blizzard they predicted, although maybe the central part of the state got the worst of it.  Hope all is well with you and your family.  Thanks for the compliment on the DWR.  I will not be making another one!

Lucky duck!  I should check some auctions here...in my spare time!

Diane, where are you getting all of those beautiful antique quilt blocks?  I am jealous!

Thanks for the compliment on my quilt Diane!  It always makes me feel better when a quilter likes something I made!  You should've seen me taping this quilt to the floor the figure out how to do the border!  The pattern was for a wall-hanging but my daughter wanted it to be big enough for her to cuddle under.  Things we do for our kids!!! lol

Diane, just saw your GFG hexie quilt. I have one in the process. It is about a queen , making it into a king for one of my daughters. I was very impressed with yours. Did you hand quilt it? I still have not perfected my hand quilting, hope to feel good about it one of these days. Your work is very inspiring to me.

thanks, Donna, The Rustic Quilter
